What's on your Plate?

Everyday we should strive to feed ourselves & our family nutrient dense foods.  
Eating this way improves our health in so many ways.  It improves immune function, mental clarity, endurance, hormone balance, digestive health....
go on, add to this list....& post your comments below of the improvements you have experienced by eating a nutrient dense diet.

Pictured are some of the items I am serving my family today.
strawberries, clementines, snap peas, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, diakon radish & dip.

I made the dip by using Addicted to Veggies vegan sour cream recipe. Click the link to find it.
This is a great non dairy & gluten free recipe that is a staple at our house.

I added dried onion flakes, garlic, lemon juice and dill, a dash of Himalayan salt and a little homemade almond milk to thin it out.  
If you thin this out a bit more it could be used as a ranch salad dressing.   

It's a good idea to have fresh fruits & veggies on your table for the family to munch on.  This helps to curb the mindless eating of unhealthy foods...
If I am on the go and I have these items pre-made at the beginning of my day, I can just bag them up or put a lid on the container and stick them in a cooler to go with me.
I also like to take nut butter or some nuts and rice crackers.
Then I never have to stop for fast food and I keep my body fueled and healthy.
I like to always be prepared and keep it simple.

Lunch today
Roasted Brussels sprouts & organic butternut squash
sprayed with extra virgin coconut oil
Himalayan salt & pepper 

Our family loves this recipe from Real Sustenance. 
This is my second time around with this recipe.
I like to make my own modifications.
First time
 I sauteed diced mushrooms and sliced onions for the meat in the recipe
the onions made it super yummy!
*Daiya Cheese mozzarella shreds
I had left over noodles so I dried them in my dehydrator for the next time I wanted to make it.

Today I used dried shiitake mushrooms for the meat.
The dried noodles
1 1/2 jars of Muir Glen organic pasta sauce
( I got the pasta sauce at Kroger for $1.49 per jar on manager's special)
*Daiya Cheese shreds & ; nutritional yeast

very simple and very good!!

*for my local friends.....Avon Kroger carries Daiya products!!!!
Daiya is gluten free, dairy free, nut free Vegan Cheese....
I especially like their Havarti style~ jalapeno/garlic flavor~mmmmmmmmm
