Helloooo and happy Friday, my babes! It’s time for another Loving Lately because let’s face it, they’re my fave. I’ve decided that because usually my Loving Lately lists are long and full of info, I am going to do them occasionally now focused on ONE thing and really dive deep into it.

I am still going to do the lists, but I will be switching them up by talkin’ about one thing at a time occasionally!

 

So now let me tell you what I’m realllllly loving lately, RECIPE style!

Loving Lately // BOWL BOSS LIFE

ft. Dr. Praeger’s Gluten-Free, Soy-Free & Non-GMO Products

P.S. go enter their BOWL BOSS campaign giveaway, by heading to their landing page and simply entering your info. So exciting! $1,500 worth of prizes!

So as you know… I have been very into the bowl life for a while now. It’s the perfect way to get a meal packed full of nutrients into my life without compromising my dietary preferences, because you can pretty much load anything and everything into a bowl and when the ingredients are whole, real and from the earth… it will always taste good.

Lately I have been VERY into all things cauliflower rice. Cauli is packed with fiber and nutrients, and is the perfect substitute for someone like me who has to be grain-free for candida and tummy reasons. I also just feel WAY better when I am grain-free (who else is with me on that?!) and have been really enjoying swapping out my previous bowl-ingredients of quinoa, rice, etc. for cauli rice and more legumes and greens.

With my grain-free lifestyle, I have also gotten really into trying new products that fit into my dietary preferences as well. I was SO THRILLED when Dr. Praeger‘s asked me to be a part of their #BowlBoss campaign, because not only do I love bowls, but… I also love a good, healthy, sustainable product that tastes delicious.

Their business started 20+ years ago when two heart surgeons decided to get into the food business to provide nutritious, delicious, and convenient frozen foods as options for people on the go who were not necessarily making healthy choices to begin with. You know I am all about working with people who are kind and inspiring from the inside out, and they are absolutely that.

Since then, the brand has evolved into a full-fledged food business that is still independent and family-owned. On their site they have options for gluten-free, non-GMO, soy-free, vegan, kid friendly, what’s new, and more. Of course, beyond the kid-friendly… I fall into most of those categories. I am not vegan by label, but I do choose to eat plant-based a good portion of the time lately, especially with my candida issues.

In this bowl I used Dr. Praeger’s kale veggie burger, which is to DIE for. It’s packed full of kale + 9 other veggies and it’s so juicy and delicious. Completely non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and vegan. It does have a bit of quinoa and rice in it, but I am not 100% strict with grain-free… just whenever I can be! I balanced it out with the cauli rice this time around.

The rest of the ingredients were…

1 cup cauliflower rice, sautéed in ghee and turmeric spices

1/2 cup sliced kabocha squash, roasted at 450 degrees Fahrenheit & dusted with paprika and olive oil

1/2 cup spinach + a handful of cashews, sautéed in ghee and turmeric spices

+ topped with the kale veggie burger!

Such a powerhouse meal, full of healthy fats, veggies, greens and good, hearty carbs.

I ate this while Dany and I were cleaning my house yesterday and… let me tell you, I was full of energy and bouncing off the walls.
