Directions:Crumble your base and cook it in ghee or olive oil on medium heat about 5 minutes. Add chopped or grated veggies. Flavor as desired after veggies are lightly cooked (i.e. still crisp but softer and brighter). Put on a topping and place a lid on the scramble to soak in more of the flavor while you heat or toast your grain. Be grateful and enjoy!
- Pick base: tempeh, sprouted tofu (1 full package)
- Pick veggies: carrots, onions, spinach, olives, tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, kale, chard, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, bok choy, cabbage ( if your really short on time just use a bag of frozen veggies) and use as many as you want but at least 2 cups chopped!
- Flavor: with salt, pepper, soy sauce or shoyu to taste. And then add 1/2 tspn of turmeric, and 2 tspn. white vinegar
- Pick topping: goat cheese, rawmesan or nutritional yeast blend (cow cheese is ok too but raw is the best)
- Pick grain: toast or any grain really (quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat)
Health Know Hows:
Tempeh and sprouted tofu are soy products that are actually easy to digest, so you wont get so gassy and bloated. Plus, soy is incredibly high in protein which we need for every function in our body and brain. Why this instead of eggs? Well, I could say a lot here but what I learned from working with many clients and health professionals is that most of us need more cleansing and less build up and egg whites are very sticky and hard to digest. Paul Pitchford and I watched many clients heal just from the elimination of eggs from their diets.
Veggies are the best source of minerals and antioxidants and all sorts of good fiber and more! Plus, they are so low in their calorie count that you can eat tons of them with out a second thought. Ohh and they just taste so good. Every color in veggies has significance too so mix it up baby!
Turmeric is a powerful anti-nflamatory and helps with nearly every health condition you can imagine. Black pepper helps to activate the turmeric while its being cooked so it has a greater impact. Sea salt is the real stuff and still has minerals in it and in small amounts can be healthy but don’t mix salt and soy sauce or shoyu together. Soy sauce and shoyu (a fermented version of soy sauce that is a lot healthier and has less sodium) are great flavor enhancers but don’t do too much or you’ll start craving sweets and retain extra water. I’ll tell you more about that later or if you ask
Goat cheese is easier to digest than cow cheese. Raw cheese is the best kind in both categories since it still contains all its natural health benefits that get eliminated when cheese is made from pasteurized milk. If you want to stay more on the vegan side of things rawmesan is an amazing and healthy alternative to cheese. If you are feeling congested don’t eat any dairy cause it creates more mucus in your body. The great thing about rawmesan or nutritional yeast is that its loaded with B vitamins which are essential to good health, high energy, mosquito protection, and stress levels.
Whole grains are super amazing for most people. They can help to regulate blood sugar and keep you full for hours. Quinoa is really high in protein. Buckwheat is a great gluten free alternative that lots of peeps forget about. There are soooo many options and more than enough time to try them all and see what feels great in your body. As with everything in life, too much of a good thing is not so good. My favorite way to change it up is to sprout my grains first. I’ll talk all about sprouting in my next blog post so stay tuned.
