Lunch suggestion? This autumn delight is nourishing and fulfilling and a great way to use some leftover rice from night before. Key ingredients: Basmati rice, red kidney beans, cashews, sprouts - mix of mung, blue, chick, snow pea, lentil, alfalfa, green capsicum, cucumber, cherry tomato, olives, un-hulled tahini (dollop), olive oil, ACV, and a generous squeeze of lime juice. This meal is perfectly balanced with protein for vegans and vegetarians, alkalising, great for feeding your microbiome and overall health promoting and makes your tummy feel good! 😊 #autumnsalad #sprouts #microbiomefood #alkalisingmeals
So the recent purchase of a trolley crate has made my organic vegetable shop at the farmers markets all the more tolerable! Totally worth it! This cauliflower is still going - fresh and vibrant!
Here’s a good tip for storing vegetables! Keep the outer leaves on - it keeps the inner heart fresher for longer.
Going organic lessens the load on your liver which has enough work to do let alone detoxifying all the chemicals on conventionally farmed produce....
Here is an interesting list of “the dirty dozen” - fruits and vegetables that have been tested to have more pesticide residue...
Strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, pears, peaches, cherries, grapes, celery, tomatoes, capsicum, potatoes.
If in doubt of the origins and farming practises of your fruits and vegetables - at least go organic with the dirty dozen!
Picture - last weeks shop at Frenchs Forest Farmers market.
P.s there are only a couple of organic stalls, even though they are called “organic” farmers markets 😉
