Hey plant lovers! It’s the weekend, baby! Hope it’s going swimmingly for you. I’m still soaking up the sun in Las Vegas! Make sure you’re checking all of my Twitter and Instagram posts for pictures and #plantPOWER meals! I also filmed a little vlog yesterday from our hotel room after a yoga / meditation session. Watch on, plant lovers!
Today is VEGGIE day for #plantPOWER! Veggies are the most important foods that we can possibly eat. They provide us with almost everything our bodies could possibly need – vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and protein! Veggies are also the food group that digests easiest in our bodies, meaning they give us a lasting energy unlike any other food groups. Without ‘em, we’d literally be walking zombies. We are what we eat – when we eat honest, clean, healthy, and vibrant colored foods, we ACT honest, we FEEL healthy, and we LOOK vibrant. What could be better, right?
In the mean time, I’m going to let Danielle take the reigns and give us a new, fabulous veggie-filled and Paleo-friendly #plantPOWER recipe! Danielle is the voice behind Clean Food Creative Fitness and she is very passionate about living the Paleo lifestyle, rich in veggies. Atta girl!
Hey #plantPOWER challengers! I’m here today to disprove a common misconception about Paleo: That all we eat is bacon! Paleo can actually be a plant-based diet and, today, I’m bringing you an awesome side dish that is 100% Paleo and vegan! The task of creating Paleo meals can at times seem daunting! Who has time to cook and bake such extravagant replacements all the time for your non-Paleo favorites?!
This recipe makes the perfect side dish for any meal.
- 3 cups organic frozen spinach
- 2/3 cup light canned coconut milk
- 1/2 6 oz can tomato paste
- 2 tbs. pine nuts
- Spray a skillet with olive oil and saute your spinach until it begins to defrost over medium to high heat.
- Turn your heat down to low-medium and add in the coconut milk and tomato paste.
- Cooke everything together stirring occasionally 2-3 minutes longer.
- Top with your pine nuts and enjoy!
What’s your favorite meal to make when you only have a few minutes to throw something together???
