Hey Tribe! I get asked a lot about what I eat! I have lost over 90 pounds at this point and did it all naturally! No surgery, diet pills, wraps, etc. I eat the right foods for my body and I do Body Code 2.0 on a ongoing basis. In fact, everything I have done to achieve my weight loss, you can learn here.
I believe in honoring and nourishing the body intuitively and taking good care of it like I would my hubby or BFF or anyone else I love. Being healthy and eating healthy should never feel like a punishment. Back in the day, it did until I healed the strongholds in my mind and heart.
Recently, I shared my favorite snacks in my blog 5 Snacks That Are Actually Healthy and I also recently shared some of the more packaged food snacks that I like in moderation on my blog, FAQ: Do You Only Eat Salads or Drink Raw Juice?
Today, I want to share my favorite go to meal that is super healthy and super easy to prepare. There isn't much of a recipe and very minimal prep.
First, I like to grab about 2 cups of washed, organic greens and chop them up and lay them in the bottom of my bowl. I like to rotate with spinach, kale, chard, collards and curly leaf lettuce throughout the week. Super easy so far, right?!
Second, I choose my favorite veggies to wash, peel as needed and chop. I like to rotate out many varieties which include sweet potato, butternut squash, summer squash, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, peppers, onions, yucca, parsnips, okra, green beans, turnips, radishes, etc. I choose 100 grams' worth (sweet potatoes are the exception. I use 60 grams at a time of sweet potato). Once my veggies are washed, peeled as needed and chopped, I put them in a mixing bowl and drizzle about a tablespoon of coconut oil or avocado oil and evenly distribute the oil.
Next, I add seasoning to the veggies. This is when you flavor by your soul! Add as much as little as you would like.
Here are some of my favorite seasonings:
Freshly chopped garlic
Freshly ground pepper
Once I have seasoned my veggies evenly, I lay them out on a pan or basket and set the temperature on my air fryer to 400 degrees. I place the pan of veggies inside of the air fryer and cook until it's my preferred texture. This could be 12-25 minutes or so, depending on which veggies I am cooking.
In the meantime, I like to pan fry chicken or steak or hamburgers on the stove in a little coconut oil and seasoning until cooked all the way through or have Eric grill the meat!
Once veggies and meat are cooked, I add them on top of the bed of greens.
I like to mix it up and add these optional toppings for extra flavor and yumminess:
Crumbled Goat Cheese
Now, look at this masterpiece!
Eat and enjoy!
