Wellness Wednesday: 3 Recipe we ALL can agree on

These recipes are simple, nutritious and perfect for anyone avoiding –
gluten, dairy, sugar, eggs, grains or legumes 
(almost paleo, however I used sweet potatoes – apparently our paleolithic ancestors cooked meat but not potatoes. whatever.)

Simply omit the animal protein and double the portion size for a deliciously healthy Vegan or Vegetarian variation.

You know what?  I’m shifting the perspective here… Whether you’re avoiding certain ingredients or not –  these are just delicious recipes I know you’ll love, and will leave you feeling nourished, energized and satisfied (not bloated and heavy)!

The common thread here is WHOLE, SEASONAL, ORGANIC ingredients…
