Russ first introduced me to this dish a few years ago. Then, when I was completing a #Whole30 round, I knew it was a dish that I could make compliant. Lomo Saltado is strips of sirloin, peppers, onion, and tomato wedges served over French fries and/or white rice. I make it healthier by omitting the rice and baking my own crispy potato wedges. I’ve also served it over cauliflower rice. * Link to blog is in bio, just search Lomo Saltado.
I’ve made a gluten free and low fodmap meal with no slip ups. 👏🏻🙌🏼
I cut everything down and started fresh with the simplest ingredients.... yes, from a bottle but still. 🥣
I’ve used organic mince, organic jasmin rice linguine from @gusto_nero and passata from @aldiuk
Fresh greens and beets from the farm made for a yummy lunch. The vegan zucchini bread on the side is dangerously tasty 😋 .
1/3 C melted coconut oil
1/2 Maple syrup
2 flax eggs
1/2 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 1/2 C grated zucchini (strain out extra liquid on paper towel)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 3/4 C gluten free flour
Slowly add you let dry ingredients to your wet then fold in 3/4 C chopped walnuts. .
Bake at 350 for an hour. I highly recommend vegan butter on top! I baked mine in a loaf pan, but I think I will try muffin tins next time.

As promised, here’s my recipe for sugar-free gluten-free plum tart- link in bio!
Gluten-Free Plum Tart
I am mighty proud of my latest creation, especially as I had doubled my dessert challenge:
A Sugar Free AND Gluten-Free Plum Tart!
Oh, and did I mention it had to be delicious too? Duh! I have been recently devoting some real quality time to super healthy desserts that we can all enjoy. While I have no gluten problems, I do deplore the near-total absence of nutritional value of all wheat products (breads, pasta, pizza. Whole wheat products are a drop better but not much) and look to explore with the same items, only much more nutritious. Likewise, I stepped up my search for naturally sweet treats when I decided to drastically reduce my already reasonable sugar intake. Aren’t we all in a war of attrition with sugar, to some degree? @mamalealulu -
(Español abajo) Protein packed chocolate tart 🍫 This is undoubtedly my favorite way to eat protein, in a dessert, sweet, creamy and full of chocolate 😏 who else?

Feliz Domingo!!! 🙌
Missing being able to pick my own bloobs from the garden for a breakfast bowl 💙 my boyfriend, Leif, mom’s garden was so inspiring! I already have plans to install another raised bed planter🌿 I’m thinking blueberries, shishito peppers, and herbs 👌🏼 any thoughts?!
Last week I got to explore the local farmers market and fisherman’s wharf with Leif’s mom in Newport, Oregon 😊 I had the best time seeing what produce they are able to grow in the Pacific Northwest 🌲👩🏼🌾❤️ I learned Oregon is known for their berries ~ marionberries, boysenberries, blueberries + all the wild blackberries 🍓 I made a lil video as I walked through the markets to share what I found with you 🤗 I’d love to hear what you think! LINK IN BIO ☝🏼
What’s your favorite summer food? Are you growing it in your garden?! 🌻 comment below👇🏼 xo Megs
Happy Sunday friends! Hope you’re all having a restful and sun-filled weekend. I took a morning flight to MN today, my first time! I’m super jazzed to present at a nutrition education conference for work 💪🎉.
Per my trip prep MO, I hit the grocery store and loaded up my fridge. Work is going to be nutty as soon as I get back, so it’s one less thing I’ll have to do later. Check out my week’s meal plan☝️. 3 full days (short wk) of healthy eats for 1 = $48.
1) Chia yogurt bowls (dairy free) - Digging these creamy, filling bowls on repeat. Almond milk yogurt by @kitehillfoods, chia seeds, a scoop of almond butter, frozen peaches and coconut flakes.
Lunches and Dinners
2) Pasta with squash, kale and sardines - Using @eatbanza chickpea pasta, tossed in a punchy artichoke-garlic-shallot olive oil sauce. Not into tiny tinned fish? Sub in sautéed shrimp or chicken, or chickpeas for vegan/vegetarians!
3) Black bean and fresh corn salad - no cook, super quick and refreshing. 🌽can be cut in raw (much sweeter) or sautéed quickly with cumin. Adding 🥑, jalapeño, onion and a gorgeous purple pepper. Everything is tossed in a scallion lime vinaigrette.
4) Fried eggs and baked sweet potato - either one will be a side for the bean salad. They are so clutch for filling up a meal!
4) Carrot sticks (from whole carrots), blueberries (in season!), and @siggisdairy yogurt (dairy full).
I’ve gotten a couple questions about the produce I buy. I opt for organic or locally/regionally grown whenever possible, I’d say about 80% or so, which does add to the bill. For me, shopping this way is part of my food values, and I’m comfortable with spending $50-75 on a week’s groceries bc I know it’ll get me 5-6 days of tasty, nourishing meals that I certainly wouldn’t get if I ate out for those days on the same budget. If you go with similar menu plans as my posts but you prefer conventionally grown produce, you may spend even less.
Have you fallen into the trend of dieting?🤷🍓🍳🥗
I've been like Goldilocks when it comes to trying different diets to try and make my stomach feel better -- vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, paleo, ketogenic...And guess what? None of them worked.
Each of these diets restricts you in some way and doesn't leave room for adjustments per individual. How does this make sense?? We each have unique genes, bacteria, and enzyme production that make us different in the way that we process foods.
The truth: there is no single diet that will work for everyone. No single diet that will help everyone to lose weight, keep it off, and feel vibrantly healthy.
The good news is that there is a way to have these things, and that's by building an eating style that works for you! Tuning into what types of proteins you can easily digest. A piece of chicken or beans? Do you run better on glucose or fat for fuel? Does it feel better to eat multiple small meals or 3 large ones?
Start asking yourself these questions and if it helps, keep notes! When you eat a meal, put your phone aside, turn off your TV, and slowly enjoy the meal. Connect with what you're eating and get real about how it makes you feel.
• 1 peach (leave a couple slices to top with)
• 1/2 banana
• 4 strawberries
• 1/2 cup almond or coconut yogurt
• 2/3 cup unsweetened nut milk
• Blend everything and top with blueberries, 1 tbsp nut butter, and bee pollen 🐝
Simplified meal prep: heatwave edition. Gearing up to get some serious work done before heading out on a major road trip this week, so taking time for self-care via some real food meal prep. Also our AC is broken 🤦♀️ so I’m prepping in the am when it’s coolest and avoiding the stove as much as possible!⠀
From top left: Egg Roll Noodle Bowls, washed romaine + cooked shrimp for lettuce wraps, 5-Ingredient "Rotisserie" Whole Chicken in the Instant Pot, Turmeric Tahini Loaded Chicken Salad, sweet potato noodles + cabbage + Real Food Fix Sesame Dressing + extra Turmeric Tahini Dressing because that stuff is so amazingly delicious. ⠀
All the recipes in caps are on the realfoodwholelife.com (just search by name) and the dressing is in my meal planning guide. What's self-care look like for you today? Would love to hear (definitely does not have to involve cooking)! #mealprepsimplified ⠀
Coconut Granola - Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free
Looking for ways to add more fiber to your diet? This granola is so versatile, healthy and delicious! It’s also loaded with fiber!! You can swap out the nuts for other Keto friendly nuts, or add more/less of those listed below. You can add sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts, or omit anything you may not have on hand. This was the combination that I love the most, the texture and flavor is spot on! You can even chop the nuts in larger pieces and eat as a snack, rather than a cereal.
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/3 cup Hemp Hearts
2/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/4 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/4 cup organic coconut oil
1/3 cup Swerve confectioners (see note below)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 egg white
Pinch of salt

Summer camp chronicles: round 2
Today they served portabella mushroom burgers (I got mine sans bun) with a chopped onion BBQ sauce and a roasted sweet potato on top. These were pretty good actually! I’m trying to get more into mushrooms. Any suggestions on how to make/eat/dress them?? Thanks in advance!!
Lunya lunch today with my Madre after a successful raid on @zara and @andotherstories. So much choice and I could have had more, if only my eyes weren’t bigger than my belly. 😳This is some of the tapas we shared, patatas bravas, padron peppers, mushrooms, asparagus and Serrano ham, chicken and romesco sauce, gambas pil pil and chorizo. Olé! 🇪🇸

Being from Southern California, breakfast burritos are a way of life. From my teens going to my local spot next to my high school and into my adulthood giving other spots a try or making them on my own, they are a way of my life! For many down here in Southern California, it’s a meet up with friends, a post surf refuel, just a regular morning, a Sunday brunch treat (🙋🏻♀️). Living the way I live now, I leave the real deal breakfast burritos for a special occasion and make the healthier version at home. My version is non-meat, non-cheese, non-egg, and you’d think non-fun but try it and see for yourself! Recipe 👇🏼 Happy burrito-ing! 🌯
-Potatoes: Dice 1 russet. Put on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt/pepper. Roast at 450 for 20 mins or until golden brown. -Tofu Scramble: Drain one pack of firm organic tofu. Wrap in a paper towel and set between two plates. Give a light squeeze to remove excess water. Add tofu to non stick pan and a dab of vegan butter + 1/2 tsp. Onion powder and 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. Turmeric. Cook at medium heat using a spatula to break up into a scramble. Add 1 tbls. Almond milk and simmer until absorbed. Cool for another 5 mins. Remove from heat and set aside. Salt/pepper to taste. -Meat: Heat soyrizo or choice meat. (P.S. I don’t love meat substitutes because they can be packed with hidden bad things. So choose wisely) -THE BURRITO: Heat tortilla of choice (I go @sietefoods for mini burritos as shown or for bigger ones @followyourheart) and layer with all components + your choice of cheese. Optional: Add avocado for creaminess or some Salsa for a kick! .
When you can make gluten free beer battered fish chips like this at home, why even bother to leave the house?! 😆🐟 I made this using @daura_damm gf beer and it the batter was soooo light and crispy! Check the link on my profile for the full recipe (or just be lazy and tag someone who will then be legally obligated to make this for you 😂) Does your local chippy serve gluten free? 🤷🏼♀️ Everyday or just one day a week? Nearby or not so nearby? Tag them if they have Insta as you might help a few fellow locals find somewhere they can eat!
I know it’s probably not the healthiest thing in the world to plunge your entire dinner into hot oil 🙈 But meals like this are soooo necessary every now and then when your life is controlled by food intolerances. Not only does it remind me of fish Fridays as a kid, but it also isn’t something I ever thought I’d be able to eat again once upon a time 😥 So being able to eat this is like a big 🖕🏻to how food intolerances can take over your life. I think it’s mentally healthy to enjoy food that makes you happy as often as poss! 👌🏻 (just please don’t call it a cheat day because you shouldn’t have to feel bad or feel like you’re cheating just to eat food you like. Enjoy it!)
Bristol Harbourside ❤️ finally got down for a walk with ALL the crowds of people today! Had the best time looking round the stalls & being a proper south west resident trying all the ciders (& attracting all the wasps!) As someone who can’t eat gluten, festivals can be a bloody nightmare and to be honest there wasn’t a whole pile today that I found. However it’s lucky I like chips as I came across a “chips and cheese” van (dream), and got these triple cooked chips with 2 cheeses. Absolutely delicious 😍😍😍
Hello Instagram people! Welcome to my first post! I decided to start a page to exchange thoughts, ideas, and recipes on things that matter to me - plant based eating, ethical living, health, and wellness. Disclaimer: I’m not perfect. Nowhere close! Like you I’m doing my best to navigate through the complicated world we live in! I do what I can 90% of the time with the occasional 10% of 🤷🏻♀️ because we’re all human. But that majority of thoughtful living is doing a world of good for yourself and the planet alike. No rules, just living. With that said... Summer is here - loud and proud. It’s actually being a real piece right now with this heat and in my household we’ve taken on grilling full steam, or charcoal, ahead with the much cooler outside cooking! We’ve got @engine2diet Poblano Black Bean burgers on butter lettuce, @kitehillfoods Greek style almond yogurt spiced up with some dried chipotle, portobello mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, sautéed onions, Japanese sweet potatoes, and some tricolored corn on the cob. Holy moly, it was good! • I’m Jenae by the way, nice to meet you! •
