Antioxidant Rich Vegan Recipe
So today's post is all about this meal that I made recently that was so delicious. Most importantly it is a very nutrient dense meal! It will help heal your body and provide it with a number of the nutrients it needs to thrive.
Why I Love It!
It's made with so many colorful vegetables that contain a high number of antioxidants. For example, Beets have a very sweet flavor and are known for their heart healing properties. They help to improve blood circulation, they purify blood and help to detoxify the liver.
Whenever we look at a food item that we are about to consume, we want to think in terms of "What nutrients and hydration will this provide my body with???" VS thinking about calories, protein, etc.
Long term sustainable nutrition for long term sustainable health!
Ingredients & How To Prepare Each
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Take one yellow platano and slice them up like you're making chips. I lightly coat them in EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and season with Himalayan Pink Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder.
Bake them until golden brown, that will take about 10-15 minutes
Onion, Beets & Kale
-2 Large Organic Beets
-1 Medium Sized Organic Sweet Onion
-1 Bunch of Organic Kale
Sautee onion on skillet until caramelized in a light amount of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Dice beets into small squares and add to onions, mix together and season with oregano, pepper, Himalayan pink salt and garlic powder to taste. Put on Low/Medium heat and cover. Cook like this until the beets are soft enough to poke through with a fork! Not too mushy though- this can take about 7 minutes. I then add in the Kale and cook all together covered on low heat for about 2 minutes.
I take 1 large Organic Zucchini and cook it on a skillet on the stovetop until it is slightly tender and to my liking. I season with a light amount of Himalayan pink salt and pepper
I eat this mixed with either cooked Brown or Wild Rice. Quinoa works as well!
