pilates inspired practice.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
2-3 servings as a main meal.
Store any leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator and eat the next day.
As I said, it tastes great as a light meal or use it as a slaw for tacos or find your own way to eat it!
My new version of granola without the carbs and sugar! Simple & delicious. Gluten-free. Sugar free. Yes!
Though I do sometimes simply eat a spoonful out of the jar, I'm loving adding a heaping tablespoon to celery sticks with almond butter or to a little yogurt with a few slices of apple or banana.
The mix in this recipe is with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, buckwheat, flaxseed and sesame.
Why seeds you may ask? From what I've read about seeds they are extremely nutritional because they contain all the starting materials necessary to develop into complex plants. Some of this goodness includes: essential fatty acids, digestible protein, vitamins A, B, C and E, minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, and antioxidents. What's not to love?
They're great to have around for healthy snacking. And it's super easy to make! You can play with the amounts of cinnamon and salt to your taste as well as different combinations of seeds.
Happy New Year!
I hope 2018 is full of many moments of joy and gratitude for all of us!
I’ve recently been experimenting with my diet and noticed that I feel better when I eat less carbohydrate. At first I was pretty sad about this but now I love all my extra energy! So I’ve been playing with different substitutions and in an effort to find a replacement for noodles, I discovered cabbage! Now, I happen to love cabbage so this is a natural progression for me but even if you’re on the fence about it, I would encourage you to give this a try. You can use this preparation for any sauce base that would usually have a pasta or grain with it.
Two generous servings.
4. Add the cabbage with a pinch of salt and pepper.
5. Cover and stir occasionally for 15-20 minutes until the cabbage is tender to your liking.
6. Add your desired sauce!
If you have extra cabbage - it will save better if you keep the sauce and cabbage noodles separate.
Hope you enjoy!
