Hello! I'm feeling so much better after last weekend's gluten invasion sickness. There are still a few lingering symptoms, but overall I'm feeling good. No more gluten for me, no thank you! This lunch box looked extra pretty to me, so I thought I'd share. From top left: azuki beans with kabocha squash, sweet potato with black sesame seeds, and steamed kale with umeboshi vinegar. This is a good example of how I've been eating lately. Real, whole, unprocessed foods. Local and in season as much as possible. Vegan and gluten free, of course. Lucky for me these foods taste amazing just the way they are. Bravo, tastebuds!
For the azuki beans and the kabocha squash I use this recipe from the Kind Life blog: http://www.thekindlife.com/post/azuki-beans-with-kabocha-squash
*edit - Shoyu is not gluten free. I use Bragg's or gf tamari as a substitute in this recipe. Thanks for noticing this Bitt!
The sweet potato is just baked until soft then scooped out of the skin and sprinkled with a pinch of sea salt and black sesame seeds.
The kale is simply steamed and sprinkled with umeboshi plum vinegar.
Hope you're having a great week! What are you having for lunch today?
