Here are a few ideas for veg snacks and ideas for creation!
These sprouted corn tortillas are excellent! They are organic corn and happen to be low sodium also. They are excellent lightly browned in the skillet and made into a tostada with guacamole and pinto or black beans and Pico on top. Yum, yum.
Mushrooms, like onions and garlic are a staple for veg cooking. They add so much flavor to everything. Note that they are also a staple in diet recommendations of Disease Prevention Specialist, Dr. Joel Fuhrman regarding nutrient density. Mushrooms have anti cancer, and anti-microbial properties and they taste fantastic! Several mushroom types can be purchased for food, Portobellos, shitake and crimini being among the most common. It makes sense why Dr. Fuhrman suggests their frequent use and includes them in the nutrient density recommendations of G-BOMBS. You can read more about the benefits of mushrooms on Dr. Fuhrman’s blog here:
Benefits of Mushrooms
I found these dried organic mushrooms at the health food store. They make a broth that is simply fabulous. Just put them in about 1/2 C of water and steam them on medium for about 10 minutes.
“Should I use the mushrooms too?” You might ask: The answer is YES! Not only do they make a broth that is something else, but they also taste fantastic and they add a thick ‘meaty’ texture almost like tofu. Mushrooms are filling. Simply add your favorite seasoning to taste. I do a little salt and pepper that is all.
These are a great veg snack for… well, students always on the go. 🙂 They are low in sodium for any with salt sensitivities, are non-GMO, gluten free and added flax and Chia for omega 3’s. They taste like kale for sure. 🙂 I like kale, so no problem for me, but I think you’ll like them too.
Never forget for a snack, your rice cakes with almond butter on top too.
Y’know that many things Native American are sacred and full of substance-good stuff. I recently discovered these Anasazi beans. These prepared with the tortillas are an excellent combination! The cooking time is not as long as for black beans, which is very nice!
Stay well in the sun, rain, snow and with excellent nutrient dense, plant foods!
