ONE OF MY FAVORITE DINNERS 😋 Mediterranean Sweet Potatoes! Baked sweet potatoes topped with roasted chickpeas, hummus, tomatoes, and parsley. DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUS with lots of healthy carbs and plant protein 💪🏽
A lovely lunch with a superstar educator in the making. I had the Mediterranean falafel plate at @pearth_organickitchen yesterday (yes it was as delicious as it looks) and received a lovely parting gift from @forgetti_spaghetti_1999 😪😓😢😭
Here's to a redundancy full of lunches and time with awesome hoomans....
Sprouted Hummus 🌱🌱🌱
Sprouting releases the powerful enzymes in our foods, enhancing their nutrition and digestibility. .
To sprout your dry beans, begin by soaking you beans overnight. (8-12hrs)
In the morning, rinse and drain your beans. You will repeat the rinse several times over the next few days as you allow your beans to rest on the counter and sprout. Keep your sprouts moist and Watch as a tiny tail emerges from your bean. .
Once the sprouting has begun, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. You can continue to watch your bloom or dive right in to your recipe. Keeping your beans raw will give you the most nutritional benefit, preserving the live enzymes created by the sprouting process. .
2c sprouted raw beans
2-3 garlic cloves
1 lemon, juiced
1/4c olive oil (more or less. enough to smooth the mixture. Water can also be added to get smooth texture)
- add mixture to food processor and blend until smooth. .
So it seems I’m on a bit of plant-based dinner kick 🤷🏼♀️ I was craving crispy chickpeas all day so I had to make that happen tonight and, I must say, they were 🔥 And a quick note about serving size: I don’t necessarily follow what’s on a label (especially when it comes to nut butter lol). Sometimes I want more... sometimes less... and that’s totally okay! Listen to your body!!! It’s smart af

Falafel! This is the perfect meatless meal for a hot summer day. ☀️ The chickpeas are a great source of #plantprotein and the onion, parsley, cilantro and spices make an amazing flavor combo! ———————————————————————————
Combine 1 can of drained & rinsed chickpeas with 4 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup fresh parsley, 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, 1/4 cup chopped red onion, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp coriander, S&P. Throw it all in a food processor and pulse until combined. Add 2 tbsp of flour until a dough-like mixture forms. If it’s too sticky, add more flour. Scoop into small balls and flatten into patties. Use a cast iron skillet to pan fry the patties in 1 tbsp of grapeseed oil (about 4 min on each side) until golden brown. I enjoyed mine over a bed of romaine and added chopped cucumber, red onion, cherry tomatoes, hummus, and tzatziki. 🥗 ———————————————————————————
Slowly getting new tests and labs back from all my blood work, endoscopy, biopsies, and colonoscopy. Turns out my Hemoglobin is 8 and my Hematocrit is 30.... which is SUPER anemic guys. So much that they thought maybe there was a GI bleed or I was bleeding somewhere. My B12 results also came back and whereas the normal range is around 250-900ng, mine is a whopping 140. 😬 So I’m on iron pills, I’m getting weekly b12 shots, and guys, this girl’s eating meat. Not a ton, not every meal or even every day. But it’s happening and my body LOVES it and I’m happy. 🌻 Leftover chicken shawarma, hummus, and tabouli tonight from @casablancamem and I added some probiotic beets and spinach to it 🍀
This Mediterranean-inspired #salad is the perfect #dinner to beat the #summer 🔥. It requires zero cooking, takes seriously no more than 5-10 minutes to make, and is a well-balanced, complete meal. Need I say more?!
The base of this salad is @traderjoes cruciferous crunch collection which is a combo of #kale , #brusselsprouts , #broccoli 🥦, and green and red #cabbage (all my favs!), which is a great source of vitamins A & C and dietary fiber. My 🥗 toppings included San Marzano tomato 🍅 slices, @traderjoeslist #organic#hummus , roasted #chickpeas , and their crumbled feta with #mediterranean herbs for some #leanprotein , #traderjoes 3 seed sweet potato crackers for some #complexcarbs and #hearthealthy fats along with a sprinkle of sunflower 🌻 seeds. I paired it with a simple #homemade red wine vinaigrette dressing. .
To make the dressing, I used a 2:1 olive oil to vinegar ratio, and combined 1/4 cup garlic-infused #oliveoil , 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar, 1 tsp. honey mustard, 1/2 tsp. @frontiercoop herbs of Italy Italian spice blend, and salt & pepper to taste, and shuck it up in a cute little mason jar. I love making extra dressing, putting it in a mason jar, and keeping it for other salads and recipes later in the week! .
