Here is my classic, always-in-season bowl that's delicious and nutritious for lunch, dinner, or in-between.
It's perfect for meal preparation, a strategy I use often with clients and always for myself, or tossing together for a quick, nourishing nosh in no time.
I recommend sturdy greens like kale or other cruciferous vegetables for the base, and allowing the mixed seasonals on top to be driven by the season... And your fancies.
I’ve also included herbal additions for making it Supernatural, entirely optional but highly advised.
BOWL INGREDIENTS: makes about five days’ worth
10+ cups kale or dark, leafy greens
5+ cups mixed raw vegetables (in the summertime, this mix can include fruit, too)
2+ cups baked squash or root vegetables (any that you like)
1/2 cup sprouted nuts of choice
Healthy handful of sprouted greens (I like pea, broccoli or clover)
Nori Chips, as a topping
SUPERNATURAL SAUCE INGREDIENTS:
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup fresh parsley and/or cilantro, packed
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup Brightland Olive Oil
1/2 cup pistachios, walnuts or cashews
1/2 cup water
Blend all. Add more oil or water to thin if needed.
Optional Supernatural additions: Include a serving of:
Green Adaptogens for energy (not advised for nighttime use unless you’re going out).
De-stem kale or other greens. In a large bowl, massage (use a lot of pressure, with your hands) with sea salt until greens are soft and brightly colored and decreased in size by a third.
Do the same with any raw cruciferous veggies like cabbage, brussels sprouts or broccoli.
Chop all other vegetables and fruit. Mix all.
Prepare dressing. Dress all well. (Save some to the side to add each day, if you prefer.)
Separate into containers. Top with nuts, nori, sprouts and hot sauce, if using.
