After a morning of being on-the-go with yoga classes, workouts, writing, and coaching, having a complete and quick lunch is always key. And to stay energized and on top of thing, the more nutrients the better.
Nutrients are the key to creating a vibrantly healthy meal that not only fuels you for the busy day, but also tastes delicious. The more nutrients you get, the less cravings you’ll get for sugary, unhealthy foods. This is because your body needs certain nutrients to stay fueled and work efficiently. When you miss out on key nutrients, often found in fresh produce and beans, you can start to crave other foods to make up for it.
This is why you sometimes crave snacks even though you just had a full meal.
If you fill your plates with color, you are more likely to eat a variety of enzymes and nutrients, that not only help you better digest your food, but help you get the energy from it that you need.
In this meal, you’ll find fresh pesto and peppers, protein packed chickpeas, and warm homemade pita. All of these combine to give you a fresh, delicious nutrient boost you so desperately crave 😉
