Bowled Over


Traditional January detox philosophy tells us salads are good for us. Eat light, give your stomach a break and a chance to reset. In my experience, there is something to that way of thinking. Just like any part of your body that's been overused, rest is in order.

But for me, eating a flimsy salad in the winter can actually be detrimental. It's really cold outside. I need some good hearty food to warm me up. Cue the earth bowl! It's a new trendy "salad" that I highly suggest you try. The best part about this easily searchable Pinterest phenomenon is that you can really throw in whatever you'd like. Roasted vegetables, nuts, spinach, proteins like chicken, chick peas or quinoa.....the sky is the limit.

For this recent lunch bowl I threw in the following:

Spinach
Hummus
Tzatziki
Cauliflower and Carrots Roasted with Cumin, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper
Red Cabbage
Jalapenos

It was really yummy and I've been making them almost every day with different fun things thrown in. I hope you'll give it a try and enjoy a hearty, yet healthy, winter meal.
