Plant-based Eating with Thrive Kitchen + A Recipe

I have some wonderful things to share with you today! If you don’t know already I follow a mostly plant-based diet with a few eggs and bowls of Greek yogurt thrown in there from time to time.  I started eating this way because for me personally, that’s how I feel best.  I also believe it is the the most sustainable way to eat.  It’s good for the planet, good for our bodies,and good for the animals! Win win win:)

Earlier this year, the creator of Vega, Brendan Brazier launched thriveforward.com which is a free online program where you can get personalized information to help you gain optimal health through plantbased nutrition. It’s really cool.  This week they added something new! A recipe center called Thrive Kitchen.  I’ve been scrolling through it all morning making a list of all the awesome recipes I want to try! Seriously check it out. There are so many good looking recipes to try,not to mention they are all healthy and nourishing for our bodies.

Serves: 1

  • 1 small or about 3/4 of a med/large zucchinni, spiralized. (could also use a julienne peeler or a grater)
  • 1/3 of a carrot, spiralized
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas (I spritzed mine with a little braggs liquid aminos)
  • 1/4 cup of fresh corn
  • 1/4-1/3 avocado
  • 1 tsp of miso paste
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • Optional:  A couple of scoops of sauerkraut

1.  Warm the chickpeas in a pan if desired.

2.  Mash the avocado, miso, and lemon juice in a bowl and then mix into the noodles.

3.  Top with corn, chickpeas, and sauerkraut if using!

4.  Note:  As always, you can use whatever veggies you would like for the “noodles”.  Zucchinni and carrots are just my favorite!  Other options:  cucumber, jicama, raw beets, shredded cabbage, etc.

Easy peasy and delicious.
