If you feel like you need an extra dose of greens in your day then these green goddess bowls are for you! Filled with crisp veggies that are packed full of vitamins, avocado for a dose of healthy fats, and some edamame to keep you full!
I can’t believe it’s already the first day of September. The summer just flew by. I honestly don’t even feel like we had much of a summer…probably because it never actually warmed up. I can remember about 4 consecutive days of warm weather this summer and then it just got cool and rainy out again…
So I’m still hanging on of what’s left of summer. Technically there are still 22 days. So I’m going to hold off on the fall recipes and all of the pumpkin spice for now. (Though if you’re ready to embrace Fall I’d definitely recommend my roasted sweet potato cinnamon soup!)
This recipe for green goddess bowls is the perfect light lunch and an easy way to make sure your getting in your daily dose of greens! I’m all for green juice and green smoothies, but sometimes it’s also nice to chew your greens and making sure you maximizing on their nutritional benefits and fibre;)
