We’re getting so near that point of 12 months when it is simple to let our guard down and simply go for it—which means consuming and ingesting no matter we wish every time we wish. There’s nothing mistaken with that, in fact, however for a few of us, overindulging means we find yourself with undesirable additional weight and general malaise.
I am speaking concerning the holidays and the way it’s really easy to overdo it in terms of meals and drinks. Between the Thanksgiving pies and the Christmas fudge, the average person typically gains a pound or so during the season, however the results of an excessive amount of sugar and an excessive amount of consuming normally can bathroom down your system.
Earlier than we go into meals overload within the weeks to return, a pleasant wholesome vegetable bowl is likely to be simply the ticket. This specific veggie bowl was shared with me just a few years in the past by a Bend buddy who was gracious sufficient to be a visitor on the food podcast I used to be internet hosting on the time (FoodLifePodcast/Stephanie’s Story). Her story was so inspiring and the recipes she shared with me have been simple, scrumptious and stuffed with healthful elements. The veggie bowl was the most effective ones I had ever made at house.
This straightforward recipe requires candy potato, wealthy in nutritional vitamins A and C, in addition to manganese and potassium. It additionally has avocado, a great fats supply and Brussels sprouts, a cruciferous vegetable wealthy in nutritional vitamins and minerals which will assist to decrease irritation within the physique.

You can too change up the garnishes. For instance, for those who do not like inexperienced onion, skip it. Add some chopped cilantro together with the basil and mint, maybe, or squeeze some lemon on prime if you do not have a lime useful. It is a versatile recipe ripe for personalization.
For my part, the sauce is what makes the dish, so I counsel following the recipe for that, a minimum of initially. When you style it for your self, you’ll be able to resolve in order for you extra garlic or much less sugar or no matter.
The great thing about this recipe is you’ll be able to prep additional elements (cube two potatoes as an alternative of 1 and trim 4 cups of Brussels, for instance) and make a bigger batch of rice and maintain the whole lot within the fridge till you are able to make a bowl or bowls.
