Had a jones for some pasta and something from planet Guac. So... I used the “bones” of this recipe 👉🏼 https://biancazapatka.com/en/avocado-pasta-creamy-guacamole/, courtesy of @biancazapatka – tons of great vegan dishes on her site, check it... Then I put my own spin on things – because “recipes are just a guide”, right? I used #nooil in this. I traded the pine nuts for chopped pecans I skillet-roasted until slightly crisp; added some tarragon, Italian Seasonings, some black pepper, and a little chopped onion with the basil and a pinch of pink salt, plus a few shakes of Sriracha to the avocado 🥑 mixture... Tang & Bang, baby! Then I went nuts with the toppings: red, green, & yellow sliced bell pepper and about 6oz Cremini shrooms, chopped, sautéed until “almost done” but still got the freshy-freshy... a little ground thyme was added to the sauté (the mushrooms and thyme are always a good marriage), plus something else I can’t remember (damn!), but it was good. After roasting the pecans I tossed them into the sauté and removed it from the heat. A GREAT blend of flavors there! While the veggies partied I combined the cooked and drained pasta with the avocado mixture in a large bowl. To serve, I heaped a pile of pasta into two bowls – one for me, one for Boo Boo @vlmatthews – then topped it with some sautéed veggies, sliced cherry tomatoes, and meatless “meat” crumbles I made from tempeh a few nights ago and had in the fridge. #jakeandbooboosvegankitchen was exploding with joy tonight. . If you’ve been wanting to find ways to make healthy, great tasting food a part of your daily life, you can’t go wrong with whole food, plant-based meals like this one that are high in nutrition, very low in fat and sodium, no cholesterol, and so easy to prepare. You don’t need to be a pro chef to make and eat great tasting food that’s good for you, good for the environment, and is animal-cruelty free. If I can do this, anybody can do
Credit to @thewholisticnurse - How many of you eat beets? Some people love them or hate them, and have been described as either tasting like dirt or candy.🤷🏻♀️ Beets are a root vegetable packed with essential vitamins, minerals and plant compounds, some of which have medicinal properties. One of these compounds is called inorganic nitrates. In your body, these nitrates are converted into nitric oxide, a molecule that dilates blood vessels. The medicinal benefits of nitric oxide include: . ❤️Helping to lower systolic blood pressure temporarily to decrease your risk of heart attack, heart failure, or stroke. . 🏋🏻♀️Aids in the efficiency of the mitochondria of each cell, which produces energy and better oxygen use in the body. Studies have shown drinking beet juice can improve performance and decrease fatigue in athletes. . 🧠Increasing blood flow to the brain to improve cognitive function, memory and reduce the risk of dementia. . Beets also contain medicinal anti-inflammatory compounds. Chronic inflammation is linked to cancer, obesity, liver and kidney disease. Studies in humans have been conducted showing that beet juice has reduced knee pain for those with arthritis/inflammation. . One more benefit to mention is that beets are filled with antioxidants too 👊🏻 Meaning they reduce oxidative stress, helping the liver detox toxins. Getting rid of toxins helps ward off cancer and hormone imbalances. Studies have shown beet juice has reduced the growth of prostate and breast cancer cells. . I don’t know which side of the fence you’re on, but it’s safe to say, incorporating beets into your diet has many health benefits that far outweigh any reasons you have for avoiding them. There are many more benefits to this root vegetable, and I could keep going, but you get the gist. 😉They can be cooked or raw, mixed in smoothies, topped on salads, juiced, added to dips, and their leaves can be cooked like spinach. .

Yesterday afternoon I felt low on fiber and food from the earth. So I raided my fridge for all vegetables I could throw in a bowl. Thus birthed this here photo.. and I have to tell you, it was sooo good. This moment was literally a choice of "eating for life". I feel like the more we do that, the more happy our bodies will be. . I put some arugula in the center with basalmic on top. Broccoli and hummus on side, with left over black beans, and red onion. I've been slightly obsessed with sweet potato noodles (ask my roommates) so I cooked some of those (pre-spiraled) in a pan with some cut up beets and spiraled zucchini as well. Let them steam with a lid on.
