My, oh my, I hope your Wednesday is amazing. I’m not going to lie, I woke up pretty grumpy. But, that mood has since shifted through intention, morning affirmations, a matcha latte (with local honey, reishi, walnut mylk, and cinnamon!), and riding my bike to work. I mean, how can you be upset after all of that?
It helps that, for the most part, life is going pretty damn good. I’m in the process of moving Bloom for Life over to Life in Bloom (a development I started myself and have since stressed out my tech guys with). With that move, I am receiving a whole lotta inspiration to create, create, create.
At the same time, I’m feeling
fucking good and kind of just want to sit in a meadow, sipping my matcha tea, and contemplating life. If a friend or two decided to join and brought some musical instruments, I wouldn’t mind. It’s a dilemma, for sure – but definitely a privileged one.
Before I get started on my day, I just wanted to share a new recipe that is paleo and vegan. Both “diets” (though I prefer the term “lifestyle”) are pretty popular nowadays, largely due to the fact that they are based on the premise of eating whole, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods. There are plenty of ways to get protein when eating vegan, which is why I prefer to make grain-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free meals that are veggie-centric. It sounds like a limited way of eating, but I love it.
The process of conceptualizing the meal, cooking it, and then photographing it was so enjoyable. None of it compared, however, with actually diving into the entree and testing it for myself. I ate so much cauliflower and cabbage that day.
Believe it or not, the combo is amazing when prepared as described below. I hope you enjoy making “food your medicine” as much as I did.Print
