Hey #strongbabes !
I had this bomb – A meal the other night, and I wanted to share with you what it was and why I am really feelin’ these particular ingredients these days!
Tofu, dark rice, fermented carrots, and sesame seeds
Isn’t it beautiful?
The ingredients are so simple – but Imma break it down to what’s in here and why I love it so!
Tofu – I have loved tofu since my vegetarian days, and to this day it is a staple in my diet. They are a great source of protein – but be wary because soy is one of the most genetically modified foods – so when you buy tofu is it worth splurging on organic!
Dark brown rice – slower digesting than white rice, and therefore it doesn’t spike my blood sugar (no spike, no crash!). Also because it’s less refined, it hasn’t been stripped of it’s nutrients!
Fermented carrots – I am all about gut health right now, but my kombucha buying habit is getting expensive. So I decided to ferment some carrots to grow some gut happy bacteria myself. I fermented them with garlic and ginger, and they turned out phenomenal. I happily chopped a couple up and put them on this dish. If you are curious about fermented food check out this article from Wellness Mama sharing the benefits!
Sesame seeds – sesame seeds are full of b-vitamins and also aid in digestion. Plus it adds a little extra protein!
To add a little zing I topped it with The Naam Miso Gravy – my favourite sauce from my favourite restaurant in Vancouver! They sell it here at most of the local health food stores (thank god!)
Nothing is better than eating a good meal that tastes good and also leaves you feeling good after!
Are you guys tofu fans or no?
Thanks for dropping by babes!

This looks sooooo good. I have never had dark brown rice- but it looks absolutely delish. I just recently started fermenting certain foods and I don’t know why it took me so long?! It’s super easy and tasty. And I feel ya on that expensive Kamboucha kick. But it’s so easy to justify because it is soo good for you. Love this recipe. I have some tofu that is about to expire so I might just need to try my hand at this soon! xx
Looking good. Either you should do a recipe book or something because this looks awesome and yummy!!

You could do something where it has desserts and dinner recipes. You have used the items or done the recipes. You can tell people where to get the items, how it taster, how to prep and your opinion over all. Maybe do something where only your top 10 recipes make the book. I just think your photos and explainations are always awesome
