The purpose of this research is to focus on the foods that I’m consciously putting into my body. What will give me energy? What will serve my body well? I know that I need protein so that I feel fuller longer and have more energy so nice bowl of miso soup did the trick. A nice big salad that I made with spinach, carrots, zucchini, mini tricolor peppers, tomatoes, And cucumber with 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds and I homemade vinaigrette did the trick!
Big bowl salad
Two handfuls of spinach
1/4 cup of each of your favorite vegetables.
1 tablespoon of either sunflower seeds or Peoria pumpkin seeds
Homemade balsamic vinaigrette
This recipe makes eight servings and ideally you would want to spoon about 2 tablespoons on each salad. If you feel like you need a little bit more just squeeze some lemon juice that usually does the trick.
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon finally chopped basil
1 tablespoon finally chopped flat leaf parsley
You can get the instant miso soup from the grocery store but the sodium content is sometimes a bit higher
You can purchase white miso paste as well which comes in a tub and follow the directions on the container for how to make the miso soup. I suggest getting this because you can also make a great ginger sesame miso dressing from it:)
