so my brother called me this afternoon and when i picked up he asked what i was doing. i told him i was just finishing up lunch, so he asked what i ate, and when i told him he started cracking up! i guess in my head these things sound so good, but if you're not eating a plant based diet you may think it sounds strange...i urge you to give it a whirl!
just try this yummy little eeeeasssy meal. it's super healthy and satisfying! i typically make 2 cups of brown rice at the beginning of the week so i have a nice little batch to whip up easy meals on the go.
i also always have a few leafy greens on hand - they are packed with calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium and i try to have at least one serving per day. these include kale, collard greens, bok choy or napa cabbage.
soooo what i do is steam my cabbage and my leeks and put it atop a nice big bed of brown rice and then drizzle the best little dressing ever on it - a mixture of 1tbs flax oil (good for fiber and your liver) and 1 tbs umeboshi plum vinegar (ume plums are a magic little food that aids in digestion and alkalizing the blood) and sprinkle it with toasted sunflower seeds! this is straight out of alicia silverstone's book, the kind diet.
just try it already...
