bowl of goodness
Warmed Greens And Lentils with Tahini Dressing
I call this super simple dish my ‘bowl of goodness’.
That’s because Sea Vegetables are a great source of iodine, a mineral that is really nourishing to your thyroid gland. Plus sea vegetables and lentils provide different types of beneficial fibres, enhancing the gut’s function.
The greens provide plenty of B vitamins, which are so helpful throughout your body including for supporting energy production.
Whilst most of the ingredients in this dish provide their own unique phytonutrients which are so helpful to your overall health, gut function and longevity.
I first developed this recipe for my 30-Day Programme because I wanted the members to be able to learn a really easy, fast dish that was nourishing. We produced a video from that, which you can have a sneak peek at below.
I hope you’ll like it too.
