our new favorite summer sauce ☀️ roasted tomatoes and peppers sauce 🍅🌶❣️ full recipe below👇🏼 + linked in bio☝🏼
Tuesday’s Esalen wisdom: “WHAT YOU PRACTICE GROWS” 🙌🏼✨ it is the truth 💕 @drshaunashapiro shared this with us the first day of the Loving Awareness workshop. It made me think of SO many things. In relation to food, I couldn’t help but think of when I first eliminated processed sugars and gluten from my diet. Nothing tasted sweet or as good as I remembered it to... Over time, I began to notice my taste buds changing 😋 peaches, nectarines, watermelon, tomatoes, they all started tasting sweeter on their own. The longer I continued to eat this way, the more I enjoyed food on it’s own AND less sugary things! .
I have always been a sauce kind of girl — ranch, ketchup, aioli, mustard, etc. 🥫 as I started paying attention to the foods I ate, I began to appreciate my mom’s homemade sauces more and more. The amount of additives (especially sugar) used in sauces is cRaZY! .
#MyFoodPractice started out as a necessity. My autoimmune disorder left me at rock bottom. I was sick as I had ever been. Simply by changing my diet, I was able to heal my gut and restore my immune system. I practiced making conscious choices every time I ate and everything in my life changed 🌞🌟🌻 .
✨What are you wanting to change in your life? What are you willing to practice to grow stronger??✨

Este plato serviría como opción para un meatless monday, no siempre se puede tener la refri llena de cosas para cocinar 😳 esta es una opción para esos días en que no han ido al súper pero tienen que sobrevivir 🙆🏻♀️💁🏻♀️ arroz + aguacate + falafels y una salsita de maní que la hice mezclando pasta de maní en una ollita con un refrito de cebolla y pimiento, fue un almuerzo fácil, sencillo y completo (tal vez faltan más vegetales pero no tenía 🤷🏻♀️) Los falafels los compré hace unas semanas en mi comisariato, son marca SAHARA y en serio desde que los descubrí los amé, son demasiado ricos 🤤 y sacan de apuro, se los recomiendo 💯 PD: La #avorose me salió gracias al vídeo de @papayita.ec si siguen una dieta vegana, pueden seguirla tiene ideas súper buenas y ricas :) #glutenfree#Singluten#glutenfreelunch#meatlessmonday#vegan#celiacos#celiacosguayaquil#celiacosecuador#foodie#falafel#avocado#libresdelgluten
What does a beef and pork raising heirloom bean evangelist eat for late supper on Meatless Monday? A brothy bowl of @RanchoGordo beans with tomato, garlic and crumbly Romano. Some for now, and some for the freezer. I have a trick that turns beans and their broth into something comfier, richer and more extra. It’s the liquid! After cooking the beans to the desired doneness, I remove the beans to a bowl, turn the heat up to Med-high and bring the liquid to a simmer. How long it takes depends upon how thick you want your bean gravy to be. When the liquid has reduced and thickness is right, salt to taste (I don’t add salt or acid to beans until the end), and add a generous pat of butter. Stir until the butter is melted, return the beans to the pot, stir, then dish up into a bowl with lots of gravy, and top with chopped fresh onion, herbs, tomato, bread crumbs and/or grated cheese. And maybe some cracked black pepper. Drizzle with good olive oil, and enjoy ❤️ #peasantfoodisthebestfood#meatlessmonday#batchcookinglikeaboss
Georgia and I enjoyed a quick dinner at the Lunch Room last night. It was my first time trying anything off their lunch/dinner menu. I had the Pad Thai and Georgia ordered her usual-the Ruben Salad. Neither of us were disappointed. When in Ann Arbor, am I right? 😂😁
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
In 2018 we have access to a plethora of resources and knowledge quite literally at our fingertips. If you still consume animal products, wear animal products, attend entertainment venues which abuse and exploit animals, or use cosmetics tested on animals, it’s likely because you are not aware of how immensely cruel these industries are, of how sentient, conscious and aware animals are, or of just how much they suffered so humans can have that specific product. These industries are incredibly secretive for a good reason.
But it’s likely you’ve seen glimpses into this hidden world, and it’s likely you’ve chosen to turn a blind eye as to prevent yourself from being inconvenienced or from being exposed to unpleasant images and thoughts. “Don’t tell me, you’ll spoil my dinner,” goes the famous quote from the animal rights documentary Earthlings.
It’s up to us to overcome these slight inconveniences and step out of our immediate comfort zones for animals. As consumers it is our responsibility to be informed of the consequences of our actions. As good as it might feel to be blissfully ignorant it feels one thousand times better to not have to lie to yourself about where your food comes from, or to have to invent reasons why you are “still an animal lover”. After all, ignorance is only bliss to the ignorant one- to the animals, the victims of our ignorance, it is not blissful at all- it is nothing but violence and suffering.
It comes down to this: if you intentionally turn a blind eye to the suffering of animals for your own use and consumption, you are fully responsible for their plight. You can say you didn’t want to be inconvenienced. You can say you didn’t care. But you can’t say you didn’t know. If something feels wrong, there’s a good chance it IS wrong. Follow your heart. Do your research. Don’t be afraid to see those harsh images of animal suffering, as you’ll feel so much better when you stop participating in it. Take responsibility for your actions as a consumer.

Not your average quinoa + chicken pairing. One-pan quinoa and chicken, tons of veggies, #coconutaminos or soy sauce, ginger and more 😍. Comment below if you would like the recipe 🙌🏽🙋🏽♀️🙋🏿♂️ .
Quinoa con pollo y vegetales. Esta receta resuelve demasiado para un almuerzo. Usé aminos de coco en vez de salsa de soya/soja, mucho cilantro y amor. Quieres la receta? Déjame un comentario 🤗🙋🏽♀️🙋🏻♂️

These hot (and smokey) days do not have us wanting to turn on the oven when we get home from work. This Spicy Tomato Watermelon Salad is the PERFECT option this time of the year. Be sure to put it on your dinner rotation this week!
1 tablespoon tamari
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 small garlic clove, minced
½ teaspoon minced ginger
3 heirloom tomatoes, sliced into wedges
5 cups cut watermelon (about 2-inch triangles)
1 thinly sliced jalapeño and/or a few Thai chiles
2 tablespoons Thai basil or regular basil
2 tablespoons toasted cashews
½ avocado, diced
Sea salt, to taste, if desired
Lime wedges, for serving
1. Make the dressing: In a small bowl, combine the tamari, lime juice, vinegar, garlic, and ginger.
2. Arrange the tomatoes, watermelon, and jalapeños on a platter or in a shallow bowl. (This salad should not be served in a deep bowl because the flavorful juices will sink to the bottom.) Drizzle with the dressing and top with the basil, cashews, and avocado. Season to taste and serve with lime wedges.
This was my big veggie stir fry I made last night for #meatlessmonday . Then turned into my lunch today 😊 My stir fry had tempeh, onions, sweet potatoes, broccoli, kale & mustard greens, zucchini and crispy green beans. Today is chilly out so my body wanted some warm food. Heated up my stir fry leftovers and added smoked jalapeño kraut, avocado & salad sprout mix. Ate with @sietefoods chips & their new dairy free queso dip! 😋 #wholefoods#leftovers#vegeterian#vegetables#gardenfresh#summitlady#realfood
I LOVE to cook 👩🍳 ... I am slowly cooking with less meat and dairy due to environmental issues, health and animal welfare (Meatless Monday for everyone would be equivalent to taking 240 million cars off the road) However when I do use those products I try to buy organic , grass fed, RSPCA approved brands 🧀 Haloumi is my favourite vegetarian option in a burger 🍔❤️🌿🌏 #sustainableliving#vegetarian#meatlessmonday#sustainable#lowertoxicity
Do you do #meatlessmonday ??
We have been doing so for about a year now, mainly 'cuz one of the two responsible adults forget to pull frozen meat to thaw for dinner.
Featured: spaghetti squash and homemade (ok oki from a jar but I tweaked it 😂) sauce
But served with just butter and parmesan cheese is the bomb too!! #momlife#mommy626#eatyourveggies#survivingtoddlerhood#monday
Baked Ziti is one of my most popular recipes and my go-to meal when a friend is welcoming home a new baby or just needs a helping hand with dinner, and it feeds a large group so easily! It's also #meatlessmonday friendly, as the sausage is totally optional. What's your go-to meal for your family?
You can find the recipe and tips on thawing the baked ziti at the link in profile or http://www.kelseynixon.com/baked-ziti/ #bakedziti#kelseynixonrecipe#pastaparty#leftoversfordays
My jackfruit experiment. My first time trying jackfruit and I decided to make manicotti, my filling included jackfruit, spinach and a few spices,herbs onion, garlic and cheeses,they came out pretty good. The smell of the jackfruit got to me a little but it made a good meat replacement. #jackfruit#chefsalena#manicotti#spinach#smellyfruit#meatlessmonday

A lot of people think that by under eating they’re doing their bodies a favor to look slimmer. What they may not know is that under eating will cause you problems in the future, when you’re aging and your body’s reserves are not what they should be.

How do you feel? Tired? Sleepy? Exhausted?... go back to your diet my fiends

Tried #meatlessmonday last night and it was #fail . (Not pictured: the grilled chicken strips I ended up adding) it was only fail because I couldn’t eat it without meat. Health is a marathon not a sprint. I try new things and learn from my mistakes.
