This bowl is super easy and clean for the ones who want to try something filling and healthy to boost both your skin and metabolism for the fall season. It takes literally 10 min to prepare it.
A lot of people are getting sick this time of year. I try to eat extra Vit C and stay warm. Its always hard to dress in Norway when it is freezing while you go to work in the mooring, but gets so much warmer during the day. The skin too can easily get dry and needs some extra care this time of year. I'm not a doctor, but from my own experience, it is true when people say ¨you are what you eat¨. At least for me, if I eat sugar every day for a week I can tell on the skin, but again we all have different genes.
Bowls are quick and easy to prepare, and you can add anything you have leftover in your fridge. This bowl was made of what I had leftover from the day before. Some leftover kale, avocado, cucumber. red pepper and lentils. I always have avocado and pesto in my fridge, as I use these two ingredients for almost every meal. I eat one avocado a day. that's probably one of my best beauty secrets to avoid dry skin. This is perfect as a lunch box too. If you want some extra protein you can add some tuna, cottage cheese, eggs, tofu, or chicken to make it just the way you like it.
What you need
1 Handful of kale
1/2 box on lentils
What you do
Chop the kale and start heating it on low heat with some olive oil and salt. Chop the pepper, cucumber, and avocado and drain the lentils.
When the kale gets soft, have it over in a bowl, and add all the veggies. Top the bowl with some seeds.
I used pumpkin and sunflower seeds on mine. In the end, add some pesto and a little olive oil.
Voila! I hope you got inspired to try a vegan lunch bowl, remember you can always mix and match your bowl with other ingredients. Roasted beets or sweet potatoes are also a great source of vitamins C and slow carbohydrates! I will probably try with some roasted root veggies for my next superfood bowl.
