Dinner! Tonight we enjoyed a big salad with a heap of nourishing additions. This meal is on the menu I posted the other day. It is a Gluten, dairy, meat, grain free dinner.
Here's a play by play from the photos.
Rinse the kale and de-stem it, place bite sized pieces in a large bowl, drizzle olive oil, s and P and massage for a few minutes (5 or so). Doing so releases the bitter bite that kale can sometimes have when eaten raw. I used dulse flakes because D and I became iodine deficient living in Mongolia...
Rinse and finely chop beetroot leaves (remember last night I boiled up a few beets, tonight we ate the leaves. Using all of the veg is part of having a sustainable kitchen). Make a big pot of buckwheat. Rinse very well before cooking. This is a member of the rhubarb family. It is an acquired taste. My hubby jokes that I like the taste of dirt so buckwheat is right up my alley.
Regardless, when dressed with EVOO and herbs, it is a great addition to a meal. It slows the absorption of any sugars in the meal. It is an excellent food to consume to lower LDL cholesterol is that is a concern. It grabs the LDL and other fats and helps you evacuate them. Apples and apple peel, psyllium husks, barley oats are great at doing this too.
Roast pumpkin, keep the skin on. Vitamin K and betacarotene rich, this is a fabulous root veg to enjoy. Use a heart healthy fat because vitamin K needs fat as the conduit to absorption. Beta carotene is a fab antioxidant and good for eye health.
Gently simmer a few cups of either fava or cannellini beans. I did cook mine in bone broth so our meal is not veg/vegan. The stock is a great source of gelatin and collagen. I added chili, and a heap of my favourite herbs and spices. Rinse the beans really well before cooking.
Throw it all together. You will have leftovers for your godess bowel the next day ♥️♥️
We enjoyed watermelon as a close to our meal.
I'm off to my meditation group now.
