Wellness Wednesday: 3 Recipe we ALL can agree on
These recipes are simple, nutritious and perfect for anyone avoiding –
gluten, dairy, sugar, eggs, grains or legumes
(almost paleo, however I used sweet potatoes – apparently our paleolithic ancestors cooked meat but not potatoes. whatever.)
Simply omit the animal protein and double the portion size for a deliciously healthy Vegan or Vegetarian variation.
You know what? I’m shifting the perspective here… Whether you’re avoiding certain ingredients or not – these are just delicious recipes I know you’ll love, and will leave you feeling nourished, energized and satisfied (not bloated and heavy)!
The common thread here is WHOLE, SEASONAL, ORGANIC ingredients…
