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.


Feeds 2-4

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!
