It’s now officially SIX MONTHS until my wedding… and I can’t believe it! It still feels so far away, but I know that it will be here before I know it. Thank goodness I’ve been maintaining my lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise– because the last thing I want to do is starve myself with a diet a month before the wedding… am I right?! But between work, exercise and evening/weekend plans, it’s been tough to find the time to experiment with new recipes! So when I recently wet to this amazing NYC Vegan restaurant for a “spicy green bowl”, I was not only HOOKED, but I realized I could easily tweak it and make it my own! In my book, what makes something a super GREEN bowl is portions… make sure that you are making 50% of the bowl steamed greens! The rest is a great mix of carbs and protein, perfectly spiced with the miracle spices: cayenne and turmeric, of course
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED/DO
- half a sweet potato (clean skin with a veggie safe brush instead of peeling– the skin has tons of nutrients!)
chop up into bite size pieces and then toss with sunflower oil (higher burning point compared to traditional olive oil) and dashes of cayenne, turmeric, salt and pepper
place in a 400 degree oven until crispy and tender
- In a microwave safe bowl, steam frozen broccoli and kale
- then on another cooking sheet bake chickpeas, click here for the recipe… they are delicious snack on their own! Full of protein and healthy carbs!
- Lastly, poach an egg and combine! Egg poaching is really easy– just boil water and add a couple of tbsps of white vinegar to settle the boil… then gently add an egg. Stir egg slightly to help it create shape and let it cook for about 10 minutes!
Now how easy is that! It’s delicious, it’s healthy, and it’s the perfect go to meal after a long day!
You’re welcome SFGs!
