Want a simple guideline for how to make a bowl full of food that is not only nutrient dense but gut supporting and satisfying AND delicious? Of course you do!
This is one of my favorite ways to put together piles of great tasting, good for you, foods. Easy and quick to come together.
- Quality protein: Grass-fed organic beef, bison, pastured organic poultry, pastured organic eggs, wild caught seafood.
- Lots of vegetables: pick some greens (spinach, swiss chard, arugula, kale), add another favorite from whatever you have on hand (tomatoes, snap peas, carrots, cucumber, cauliflower rice).
- Healthy fat: avocado, drizzle of olive oil, olives, dollop of homemade mayonnaise, coconut, macadamia nuts.
- Prebiotics: Raw jicama, raw leeks, raw or cooked onions, raw garlic.
- Probiotics: Salty kombucha mayo, fermented vegetables (beets, carrots, cabbage).
- Fruit for a touch of sweetness (optional): I like raisins, berries, chopped apple, mandarin slices.
- Season: Sea salt and pepper and get a little fancy with a sprinkle of fresh or dried herbs.
Done. Now dig in!
Just use leftovers and make this process quick! Many times this creates a favorite new meal. Pictured are meals I’ve posted on Instagram. They all came together without planning and were absolutely delicious! The top right pictures meatballs, cauliflower rice, and asparagus left over from earlier meals during the week. The addition of fresh tomatoes, salty kombucha mayo (check out the recipe here) and a bit of sweetness in raisins provided just the right flavor balance.
