Stress Reducing Meal "Bowls"
I have 2 versions of healthy, stress-relieving bowls for you today:
First, let's go with the meat version. This variety has veggies that provide relaxing magnesium, salmon for Omega-3 fatty acids, healthy fats and the yumminess of brown rice, but amped up with even more flavor and nutrition.
2 cups brown rice
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/2 can water
1 salmon filet per person
3 cups cut kale greens
3 TBSP olive oil
Pinch of sea salt
Using your rice cooker, make your coconut rice by substituting the water for 1 can of full fat coconut milk and 1/2 can water. In a pan, saute your kale greens lightly with olive oil and sea salt. You can also saute the salmon in the pan, cooking for 2 minutes on each side.
Once your rice is done, put 1/2 cup cooked rice into your bowl. Top with salmon and kale. You can also add toppings like avocado, onion, or other vegetables. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy.
Variety #2 with roast vegetables instead of meat.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roast your vegetables like cauliflower, sweet potato and butternut squash by cutting into chunks and placing on a sheetpan. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt and pepper and toss. Roast for 30-40 minutes, turning once.
Arrange your bowl as before. Enjoy!
