Decided on pancakes today. Basically only because i have no ripe avocados at the moment 🤷♀️ 🥑 I used @birchbenders pancake mix, folded in some blueberries, cooked them in @fourthandheart vanilla ghee, then topped with banana 🍌, more blueberries, a little cookie butter, maple syrup, coconut flakes, @purely_elizabeth granola, and chia seeds
Chicken and tofu are the easiest proteins to prep with IMO.
🌶This takeout-inspired General Tso’s chicken/tofu recipe is coming to a future WWL Meal Plan! You can sign up to get access to all of my easy recipes (and recipes coming soon) in my bio link!
🌶If you’re ever stuck on what meal to make, think about recreating your favorite takeout meal. This is one of my go-to meals when ordering Chinese takeout and it’s easy to recreate at home!
🌶I always test my recipes with vegan and omnivore options, but I actually preferred the chicken over the tofu in this version. Included here is also white rice with mixed frozen veg as the sauce was the star of this dish!
❤️I hope you’re crushing it this week and if you have any questions about cooking for both vegan and omnivore diets, drop them below!

Bok Choy I feel like we never talk about it. Which is sad considering how nutritious it is! Between the typical good source of vitamins like A, K, C and folate. It also has shown to combat free radical damage and reduce risk of certain cancers. ☺️
I used my Bok Choy in this bowl and it was 👌🏽👌🏽 All I did was add in 1/2 a red onion and 1/2 cup mushrooms on the pan I caused you. 🍄 Once the onions and mushrooms are cooked down, add in seasonings as preferred (I went with 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp Trader Joe’s Mushroom umami seasoning, 1/4 tsp ginger powder, and 2 tsp soy sauce) then add in sliced baby Bok Choy. Allow to cook with mushrooms for 2 minutes then add in edamame and peas). Stir to warm peas and edamame through and cook off liquid. Served this with some jasmine rice from @lotusfoods. 🙌🏽

PSA: the tarragon-tahini dressing from yesterday’s post is also dynamite in chickpea salad. Tucked in purple Napa cabbage leaves and bolstered with avocado and pine nuts, I’ve re-entered a state of total tahini bliss.
Drain and rinse one (15-oz.) can chickpeas. Mash half, and leave the rest whole. Mix in chopped carrots, celery, red onion, or whatever scraps of aromatics you have on hand. Toss in tahini-tarragon dressing (recipe link in previous post), and finish off with fresh lemon juice, S&P.
Happy Wednesday! Whole30: Day 10, super delicious and satisfying breakfast today with an amazing balance of flavor and nutrients!
Sautéed @organicgirl spinach with olive oil + @traderjoes EBTB seasoning, crunchy sweet potato hash, sliced avocado and super soft scramble made with @vitalfarms pasture raised eggs, @fourthandheart turmeric ghee + sea salt
I’ve been getting a bunch of questions around two main things: how do you make your eggs and why Whole30 + how do you feel?

Dinner tonight was my favourite GF apple and pork sausages from the Co-op served with root veg mash (carrot and suede) and peas, topped with onion gravy 🤤
A delicious cacao, courgette and almond cake.. The perfect afternoon treat with a cuppa 💚.
Our organic cacao powder is the perfect, healthier replacement for cocoa.. less sugar - more nutrients. 😊.
This recipe is from the book ~ Cook Eat Love by @fearnecotton.
Cacao retains more antioxidants and nutrients than cocoa because it’s heated to lower temperatures. Plus, often cocoa has added sugar and sweetness.
Our organic cacao powder has a rich, decadent and natural chocolate flavour.

Hi, my name is Alicia, and I am addicted to sugar. 😬 I've always had a tendency to overeat carbs, but my cravings have been incessant recently. But I had a revelation this week: bitter foods are the solution to my problems.
I've known for a while that bitters help with digestion and heart burn, but they do so much more! Did you know bitter foods can help you feel full longer, cut sugar cravings, regulate your appetite, and lower blood sugar? Or help your liver and digestive system break down food and eliminate toxins more effectively?
If that's all you need to know and you're sold, I'll post a recipe tomorrow. But if you want the science behind this, 🤓 keep reading!
Your bitter taste buds are covered in bitter sensors called T2R receptors, but T2Rs aren't just on your tongue. They're also in your throat, stomach, liver, gallbladder, small intestine, pancreas, lungs, and brain! That means when you eat something bitter, that bitter flavor travels through your system and affects all of these organs.
As your body body senses the bitter, it releases digestive juices, tightens up the sphincter between your stomach and esophagus (thus curing my heartburn), and releases several key hormones:
CCK helps your body digests more slowly and thoroughly, which helps you feel full longer and prevents a blood sugar rush.
PPY suppresses appetite. It reduce consumption by almost a third!
GLP-1 stimulates insulin release and sensitivity to insulin. It does it's job so well that researchers are testing copycat drugs for diabetes. Or you could just take bitters?
Guys, if this is what bitter foods do for us, no wonder we're so sick and overweight after avoiding them for decades. Obviously bitter foods won't magically cure every condition, but they go a long way toward preventing and assisting your body with metabolic conditions.
These are the highlights from Guido Masé's book The Wild Medicine Solution. If you are feeling sceptical and want to know what studies he cites, let me know! If you're still with me and you want more info, I highly recommend his book or the company he co-founded, @urbanmoonshine. ⬅️They have a ton of good info on their website!
Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese 🧀👅⠀
I love Mac & cheese and butternut squash, so hey why not combine them both! This is a great way to sneak a hidden vegetable into your meal. ⠀
1 large @perfectlyimperfectproduce butternut squash ⠀
1/2 cup low- fat non-fat ⠀
1/4 yellow onion⠀
1 tablespoon olive oil ⠀
2 cups @ancientharvest pasta ⠀
Poke holes in butternut squash and microwave for 5-7 minutes. Remove from microwave and cut in half. Scoop out seeds and put back in microwave for an additional 5-7 minutes. Remove and cut butternut squash into cubes. Put cubes into a blender with milk. Blend until smooth. ⠀
Cook pasta per package instructions. Once cooked drain and put back in pot. Sauté onion in olive oil over medium heat. Once done put in pot with pasta. Pour butternut squash sauce over pasta and mix. Add cheese and stir. Sprinkle any desired seasoning and enjoy! #simplycle

You'd have to be vegan to understand just how freaking AMAZING this is!! Way to go @publix for helping vegan become more mainstream. Look at all of these sales!!! They even have @gardein BOGO!! I've also seen people mention that there will be a cooking event this month that's totally vegan!!! Go to publix.com and check your local ad to see what's going on near you.
