Eating amazing nutrient-dense, clean and low-carb meals doesn’t have to involve complex cooking or tons of time. The recipes in this series are delicious, inspired by our travels, and designed to make eating according to the Seven Principles easy and enjoyable. 

How to build your own bowls

1. Choose a Base

Oven Roasted Green Veggies (recipe below)

Cauliflower Rice (recipe here)

Salad Greens (mixed field greens, baby spinach, kale, dandelion greens, and arugula are our favorites. Much more flavor than lettuce!) (recipe post here)

2. Choose Toppings

Free-Range Organic Eggs (7 minute, hard boiled, scrambled, fried, poached)

Roasted Vegetables - sweet potato, parsnip, squash, zucchini (recipe here)

Tofu

Tempeh

Avocado

Raw Veggies/Herbs (cilantro, avocado, salad greens, basil, purple cabbage)

Nuts + Seeds (almonds, cashews, pistachios, hemp seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds)

Violife Vegan Feta

Beyond Sausages

Oven Roasted Green Veggies

Serves: 1 // Prep time: 25-40 min

INGREDIENTS

1 Bunch of Kale OR 1 Head of Broccoli OR 1 Bag of Brussels Sprouts

3-4 TBSP Coconut Oil

1/2 TSP Salt

1/2 TSP Pepper

PREP

Wash your selected base and dry well.

Kale - separate leaf from the stem. Mince stems, chop leaves.

Broccoli/Broccolini - Cut to whatever size your heart desires.

Brussels Sprouts - Clean off the outside leaves, cut in half.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. 

2. Place your prepped selected base (kale, broccoli, or brussels sprouts) in a large pot over low heat. Add 3-4 tbsp of coconut oil, salt and pepper.

3. Stir for 2-3 minutes, until your base is fully coated in oil and slightly wilted down.

4. Transfer to a baking sheet, making sure to spread evenly. Bake for 10 minutes, toss, and return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes until you see the first signs of the greens getting crispy and brown (this crisping is where the flavor really comes out!).

5. Remove from the oven, toss, and let cool for a few minutes.

6. Use as a base for your DIY bowls (ideas below!)
