ACTIVE BOWL

This meal represents my personal “active food” approach and is not a recipe per se but more a selection of different ingredients that all have its own benefitial nutritional value but even more in combination of the various preparation techniques and micro nutrients.

Its the perfect post workout meal as it fuels your body with energy, enzymes and antioxidants but also supports your digestive system as well as your metabolism.

Adjust to your liking by using seasonal vegetables, playing around with spices and herbs and leaving out grains or legumes to make it paleo / keto friendly. Serve with a simple tahini or my GREEN GODDESS DRESSING.

 

  • roasted pumpkin / sweet potato  with coconut oil, chipotle / cayenne, salt

  • steamed brokkoli seasoned with salt and lemon zest

  • sauteed zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, asparagus,… (put a little water in a pan, add veggies, put a lid on and “steam” for around 5 min. No need to use oil for this preparation technique)
