Plants. Powerful, nutritious, fresh, environmentally friendly + fun. These are some of the rewards of a plant-based diet. But, where to start? How to make progress? The perfect place to start is where you are.
Where you are right now is where you need to be + steps big or small towards adding more plants into your meals is perfect progress. Just start with one meal a day. And, keep going from there! A great place to start is with the Sprouts Plant-Based Tasted Great 35% off sale in November.
The good news about eating a plant based is that is doesn't center around lots of rules, just eating more plants. More plants-based options each day or each meal is progress. Here is a delicious plant-based Almond Zoodle recipe to help you fall in love with plants.
A good starting point for eating or drinking more plants are smoothies. But, where do you go from there? Are there any other ways to use Silk Almondmilk other than in smoothies? Well, here is a savory recipe that allows you to continue using your Silk Almondmilk throughout the day.
1 Cup Spiralized Zucchini
1 Cup Spiralized Sweet Potato
1 Cup Spiralized Beets
½ Cup Pomegranate Seeds
½ Cup Sliced Heirloom Tomatoes
¼ Cup Chopped Leeks
¼ Cup Chopped Cilantro
1 Cup Almond Butter
½ Cup Silk Almondmilk
2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds + more for garnish
1 Tsp Garlic Salt
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
Spiralize zucchini, sweet potatoes + beets. Or, purchase the veggies pre-spiralized as a time-saver. Saute zucchini with olive oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat until golden. Continue to saute the sweet potatoes + beets.
In a pot, add almond butter + Silk Almondmilk. Stir over medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic salt, black pepper + red pepper. Continue to stir until well combined. Add in hemp seeds.
Prepare with the sauteed zoodles in a bowl, scoop Almond sauce onto the dish. Garnish with: heirloom tomatoes, leeks, cilantro, pomegranates + extra hemp seeds.
This recipe aims to bring you inspiration for ways to include your Silk Almondmilk in savory recipes. So, you can always substitute a vegetable for garnish. Or, maybe spiralize only one vegetable instead of three. Whatever you decide, you are making perfect progress by adding more plants into your meals. This sauce is a perfect option to include in lunches for dipping vegetables or spreading on a sandwich, even.
You are right where you need to be. Your progress is perfect, keep pushing forward with the power of plants.
