Today I threw together some leftover goodies onto a bed of arugula from our CSA box last week.
What- Arugula, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted turmeric cauliflower, quinoa, lemon tahini dressing, and a big fat dollop of kraut. I love this new beet turmeric sour kraut. You can use any leftover roasted veggies.
Nutrient highlights- probiotics in the kraut, anti-inflammatories in turmeric, phytonutrients (carotenes) in sweet potatoes, magnesium in quinoa, vitamin K from cauliflower, protein and calcium from the sesame seeds (tahini), folate in the arugula, healthy fats from olive oil, lots of fiber in almost everything! Fuels your cells, keeps you pooping regularly, feeds your good bacteria in your guts microbiome, refills nutrient stores, fights inflammation, nourishes your brain and every organ in your body. Cheers.
