I'm not loving all of the off-gassing these babies are doing in the house though. Definitely putting all my green indoor plants to good use ;)
All that work left us a little hungry so I've got some great recipes to share with you this week. And I'll obviously start off with the Game Changing Granola bars I picture teased you with last Sunday.
If you have the time, it's important to soak your nuts & seeds prior to making these bars. This makes them more digestible by breaking down the enzyme inhibitors. Be sure to rinse really well after soaking & pat dry before using.
Some of the other food highlights from last week:
~ Chili Roasted Chickpeas...these were originally planned as taco fillers but they didn't make it that far as they were so great on their own. The healthy girl's version of chipnuts!
~ Buddha Bowls (recipe from one of my fave restaurants - Kindfood in Burlington)
And now onto some healthy reading for your weekend...
~ A very interesting 20 min video on How to Eat to Starve Cancer. It talks about a different approach than Chemotherapy and rather focuses on cutting off the blood supply that feeds cancer.Considering your body is always doing the best with the nutrients (or lack of) that you provide it - I strongly encourage you to give this a watch.~ I've talked before about the importance of Water Intake. Here's a few more reasons to drink up especially in the winter months.
~ Why keeping your bones healthy isn't just about popping calcium pills.
~ The amazing Matthew Kenney shares the importance of eating clean whole foods and why you should stay away from the McRib. Love this guy!
