Life’s fast, food should be slow. Here’s to taking time once in a while to enjoy cooking from scratch using seasonal and local ingredients.
Whether you make a nourishing soup like this or something else, I encourage you to slow down once in a while. Take pride in preparing and eating nutritious, real food.

Is it weird to have gnocchi for breakfast? If you can have pancakes for dinner then you can have gnocchi for breakfast! A small serving of potato gnocchi, spinach, gravy and homemade flatbread (@veganricha
It was delicious and filling!
P.S: I made homemade gnocchi tonight. It will go on the blog soon 🙏

Date night ala Andrew 😍. It's a nice time time to keep date night indoors because I want to spend as little time as possible in -17 degree weather 😅. Anyway, he made fresh guac and pico de gallo and it was amazing. Sometimes you just cant beat home made!

Topic summary contributed by volunteer(s): Linda
A healthy colon starts with healthy bowel movements. High intake of plant fiber is needed for healthy bowel movements and may be associated with a decrease risk of cancer, heart disease, and numerous other chronic diseases.
Though science is just beginning to unravel the complexity of our gut microbiome, it is clear that food entering the colon has profound effects on the composition and metabolic activity of these bacteria. Some species of gut bacteria appear to thrive on a high-fiber diet, while others prefer to metabolize fat or protein. The by-products of fiber fermentation, particularly butyrate, appear to have highly beneficial effects on bowel function. Butyrate and other products of fermentation are acidic, lowering the pH of stool and decreasing the ability of bile acids to form highly carcinogenic secondary bile acids. Butyrate also helps to maintain proper intestinal barrier function, which may help decrease the risk of various auto-immune and inflammatory diseases, including Crohn’s disease.
When animal protein and fat putrefy in the colon, they can produce ammonia, which can cause abnormal cell division and DNA synthesis. Luckily, the presence of fiber in the colon during protein degradation can minimize ammonia production. Long-term consumption of a plant-based diet can actually turn off the enzyme responsiblefor ammonia production entirely.
Sulfur-containing amino acids, found highly concentrated in animal products, are metabolized by bacteria to hydrogen sulphide. This hydrogen sulfide productionis associated with ulcerative colitis flare-ups and prevents our intestinal cells from properly utilizing butyrate.

The beginnings of a salsa verde 😛 roast before blending for deeper flavor!
〰️ Toss tomatillos, onion, jalapeño pepper, & garlic in olive oil and then broil for about 10 minutes. When blending, add fresh cilantro, lime juice, & salt (optional addition: avocado).
Thankful for a full plate after day 6 of #UltraTraining
🙌🏼chicken breast, sweet potato, red cabbage, & orange cauliflower all roasted in the oven🤤
Simple and quick pesto pasta for lunch today 👌🏼 In my opinion pasta is something so easy to make. I can throw a pot full of water on the burner, let the pasta cook, and then make a sauce for it in the mean time. It probably takes me about 15-20 minutes to make any pasta dish, so it’s ideal for someone who’s busy like me. I used my favorite pesto sauce, which you can find in my blog! Then poured the sauce over @eatbanza
penne and added some steamed kale for extra greens 🌱 I then topped it all with @traderjoeslist
bruschetta for added freshness! Simple and delish 😋

In honour of Canada's New Food Guide being released (after 11 years of waiting), I'm posting a stir fry that is based of my favourite recommendation... to eat more plant based protein! In this case, it's coming from the edamame. 🌱 Edamame (soy beans) are a COMPLETE protein (rare for plant based protein) as they contain ALL 9 essential amino acids (amino acids are the building blocks of protein)! 1 cup of edamame also contains 17 grams of protein! 💪🏻This week, challenge yourself to try to go meatless and include 2 meals that contain plant based protein! Recipe below for 1 serving⬇️
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 red bell pepper sliced
4-6 mushrooms, quartered
3/4 cup frozen edamame
0.25 cup low sodium vegetable broth
2 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tsp corn starch
1 tbsp cold water
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1 tbsp sesame seeds
Heat sesame oil in a fry pan over medium heat. Once hot, add broccoli florets and cook for 2-4 minutes. Add red pepper and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Add mushrooms and edamame and cook until mushrooms begin to release their water. Add in broth and soy sauce. Cook until veggies are almost cooked. Mix corn starch with water and slowly add to broth. Stir constantly until thickened and until veggies are cooked. Serve over brown rice and top with sesame seeds!
