Deconstructed Beet Bourguignon and Pilaf

Deconstructed Beef Bourguignon with Pilaf | Nutrition Stripped

Can I start off by saying, I’m BEYOND EXCITED to share this recipe with you all- it’s so good I can’t take it. Bourguignon (boor-gee-nyawn) is a well known French recipe that was most famously brought to mainstream cooking with Julia Child’s beef bourguignon. With Easter Sunday quickly approaching, many homes around the world will celebrate with some type of hearty roast or stew; I was inspired to make a Nutrition Stripped style homage to Julia Child’s beef Bourguignon sans the beef…and totally deconstructed…and made with beets as the centerpiece. Hearty quartered tri-colored beets on a bed of fluffy millet pilaf with roasted almonds and thyme, smothered with a bourguignon stew reduction, and topped with fresh parsley. The combination is crazy delicious and something completely unexpected when you think of beets and bourguignon. I promise, make this for Easter Sunday or any Sunday roast for that matter, and you’ll have a crowd pleaser.

Pesto Green Eggs & Avocado Toast

recipe

Pesto Green Eggs with Avocado Toast | Nutrition Stripped

Yesterday, was one of my favorite days. It was Dr. Seuss’s birthday! I know, I know this is a totally random “favorite” day to have, but ever since I was a kid I adored every single Dr. Seuss book to the extent that I would re-read the same book over and over again- Green Eggs and Ham being one of my favorites from the bunch. I thought it would be a fun tribute to one of my favorite childhood authors by creating a completely Nutrition Stripped approved “green eggs and no ham” type of recipe completely inspired by the whackiness that is the concept, green eggs. To this day, I’ll never know or understand why Dr. Seuss’s eggs were green nor do I want to know how they got to be that off color; all I know is that I’m making my green eggs with delicious basil pesto with a side of avocado toast- all greens.

Brown Rice Miso Macro Bowl

Brown Rice Miso Macro Bowl | Nutrition Stripped

I have a serious addiction to miso. No, seriously. Especially when it’s mixed with brown rice and served in a bowl with heaping veggies and all things asian inspired- I really can’t get enough. Through the process of writing the cookbook, (which you guys, it’s been intense!), I’ve been finding myself looking for the quickest way to make food that’ll keep me feeling really energized, fueled, and not weighed down during my busy days. This Brown Rice Miso Macro Bowl has been a life saver. It’s effortlessly balanced in fiber, carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats while taking less than 10 minutes to put together…yet it tastes like a meal you slaved over the stove for hours.

Southwest Three Bean Dip

Southwest Three-bean Dip | Nutrition Stripped

If you’re like me, you truly have no idea when the superbowl is unless your boyfriend mentions it in conversation of wanting to have all the guys over and “make food”. It’s not until then when my ears pop up and go “okay! As long as I make the food…and you all clean up” haha. For the past couple of years it’s been my mission to share a couple football and tailgating inspired recipes with a healthy spin; this year is just the same except this Southwest Three Bean Dip has been a long time favorite of mine and can/is enjoyed year round, but is particularly good for sharing it with lots of friends.
