Healthy Travel Recipes & Snacks, part I

Food is an integral part of my life, obviously. Not just for sustenance or fuel, but whole body nourishment on all levels. Food is social, emotional, enjoyable, and ultimately food is culture. If there’s one theme that runs through my philosophy about food and evidenced in my recipes, it’s global. I’m constantly on the quest to experience the globe and other cultures through foods and revisiting what said culture does so beautifully by interpreting into my own plant-based and whole foods type of way. One of my closet passions in life, not so private anymore, is traveling. I LOVE to travel, now granted I’m not a globetrotter nor have I traveled to many of the places on my “travel to-do list”, but I feel I’ve had a taste of those cultures through the food I make and for now that’ll do perfectly well.

Tri-legume Salad Stuffed Peppers

Today I’m combining a classic American dish with flavors of the border and inspiration from the summer in these Tri-legume Salad Stuffed Peppers. Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite meals to enjoy for dinner or a hearty lunch, the only downside can be cooking time. When I’m in the mood for something quick and easy, these stuffed peppers are perfect because there’s no cooking required and the legume salad can be made days in advance, all it takes is a minute of assembly. I use fresh lime, olive oil, cilantro, dill, parsley, cumin, and my favorite seasoning ground sumac to create a bright dressing to toss lentils, kidney beans, and chickpeas into. The end result is a refreshing, yet filling salad with protein, fiber, carbohydrates, and healthy fats to keep you energized.

Nutrition Stripped is Taking on an Intern!

Nutrition Stripped is taking on an intern! The time has come, well for quite some time honestly, for the need of a bigger team to support my efforts here on Nutrition Stripped coupled with a calling to help the younger generations in the field of nutrition and creative business. I’ve read through countless emails from aspiring nutritionists, dietitians, and other students about job opportunities and requests for my mentorship about the day-to-day running of a business like Nutrition Stripped. Those emails are not only humbling and flattering, but it’s incredibly exciting to know that the new wave of entrepreneurs are aspiring to think “outside of the box” with the many possibilities for a career in nutrition and more.

2-minute Mindfulness Challenge

Many of us, myself included, get so busy with the “to-do’s” on our list for the day that we simply forget to take a break. I’m challenging you to take at least 2 minutes everyday from working on the computer, running around getting ready, etc.,  to disconnect with all technology (yes, even the Nutrition Stripped blog!) to sit back, relax, meditate if you like, and look up and relish in nature. I’m starting this challenge for myself starting at 2 minutes gradually working up to 15-20 minutes a day, who’s with me?
Nourishing Foods 4-week Reset
I used to be a pro at meditation, every single morning without fail I’d sit and meditate for at least 30 minutes. Looking back on that time in my life I had much more mental space tackle the day and admittedly, I’m slightly embarrassed to say I’ve slipped up and engage in meditation less than 10 minutes some days. I’ve been “too busy” or making the choice not to meditate and rather finding myself starting with work or other to-do’s. Today I’m posing a challenge to you all, as a way to share my experience, but also as a way to keep me accountable to you!
