Creamy butternut bowl
I had been in a rut with my meals lately and consistently found myself dissatisfied after eating. I picked up Sahara Rose’s “Eat, Feel, Fresh” book and am so inspired to be cooking in the kitchen again! She has great tips for creating power bowls to include all six tastes in Ayurveda (protein, carbs, vegetables, fats in science land) making for a full and happy belly. I am healing from IBS/misc GI issues, so all my recipes will be geared towards low FODMAP foods. If you are dealing with a digestive issue and stray away from any of the ingredients listed, let me know! I am chock full of alternatives.
*1/2 cup chickpeas, rinsed and lighted sautéed with olive oil
(Chickpeas are listed as high fodmap foods. If they are a trigger food for you, lightly cook the beans for two minutes. Then, rinse with cold water and peel the skins off by rubbing your hands together with a handful of beans at a time.)
*1/2 cup butternut squash, spiralized
*1 cup of kale, massaged with olive oil
*1 scoop of goat cheese (cashew based) from “Eat, Feel, Fresh”
(Cashews are also listed as high fodmap foods. However, I have found that nuts in spread form, prepared with herbs, digest much easier.)
*Spices (Pitta pacifying): ground fennel, coriander, cumin, black pepper, sea salt
Add chickpeas, butternut squash and kale in a small pot. Sauté with olive oil and spices for a few minutes or until food is softened. Place in a bowl and place a scoop of goat cheese on top. Enjoy and relish in all six tastes!
