Chickpeas are life 😍
These chickpeas took around 3-4 minutes to make. I just heated them up on a pan and added a little @jargoods and mixed until the sauce has thickened and warmed through. Served with steamed broccoli 🥦 (clearly my fav veggie) and some pearled couscous. The perfect meal after a semi-busy morning. Hope you’re all having a good Tuesday!

Post gardening snack from earlier. It was such a beautiful day that I just had to get outside to enjoy the sunshine ☀️ The ground was soft enough to weed and plant out bulbs for later on the year. A bumble bee was making the most of the winter flowering jasmine. Strawberries have been tidied and divided. On to lunch. Unintentionally vegan - intentionally delicious. Hummous with sweet baby plum tomatoes and chilli olives and @koko vegan 'cream cheese' with fennel, cucumber, peanuts, coriander and sweet chilli sauce on toasted seeded bread. Not a smashed avocado in sight. Oh and a pot of homemade red cabbage, juniper and caraway seed sauerkraut.
Verdict - thumbs up from me!

Be still my #glutenfree heart, grilled cheese done 3-ways (I made these using dairy-free cheese). Which would you choose:
What’s your favorite food to eat when you have lots of tests coming up? Is it a big ol’ salad? Because it should be! It is NOT the time to sacrifice your diet and reach for unhealthy, convenient choices. Eat as many whole foods as you can, and the more colors the better! It will end up helping you by providing all the macronutrients, micronutrients and antioxidants you need to sustain your body and prevent that “after-test” illness many students get. Taking a study break to prepare food is a good mindful meditation practice as well! .

Not only are #apricots oh so tasty, the kernel inside the fruit can be made into a beautiful carrier oil, #Apricot Kernel Oil.
"At the core of the apricot pit is the kernel, and this is what is used to produce this exquisite oil. #Organic Apricot Kernel oil is well suited for skin care products because it is a mild, moisturizing oil, and is readily absorbed into the skin without leaving a residue behind." @mountainroseherbs
The Apricot Tree is native to China, but has been transported to locations all over the world throughout the past several centuries. Apricot Kernel Oil is excellent for skin protection since it's both an emollient & very nourishing. It is a luxurious oil, that also absorbs quickly and with a non-greasy finish.
We use Organic, Cold Pressed, Unrefined Apricot Kernel Oil in both of our #Massage & Body Oils: Lavender (250mg #CBD ) and Lemon Ginger Extra Strength Herbal (500mg CBD). We love it so much we also use it in our Organic Roll On Relief Blends (100mg CBD).

#TraderJoes Tuesday >> Neapolitan puffs cereal: $3.69. I couldn’t resist trying this brand new cereal at TJ’s! 🥣 It kind of reminds me of cocoa puffs in a way, except it comes with three flavors mixed together - chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. It’s a good option for a healthier kids (or adults 😉) cereal, is gluten free and best of all isn’t made with any artificial ingredients. It has a nice fruity flavor to it that isn’t as well that isn’t too overly sweet. If you’ve ever tried the mango o’s cereal that Trader Joe’s has sold during the summer in the past, the sweetness of this kind of reminds me of that in a way. Oh, and the cereal milk is the best part! It’s like a chocolatey, strawberry, heavenly milk... you’ll just have to try it to see what I mean. 😋
Can we make Turmeric Tea Tuesday a thing? Although it's great any day 💁🏼 I love sipping on this golden milk latte before bed, it's so cozy! It's also full of anti-inflammatory & immune boosting ingredients 🙌🏼
To make: 1 cup almond milk, 1 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp honey, pinch of black pepper. I warm up the milk for a few minutes first, then add the spices. Enjoy! ✨
2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced or grated
1 tablespoon minced fresh turmeric (see notes above for substitutes)
1-2 serrano peppers, diced (see notes above for spiciness level)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt or sea salt to taste
Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
1 cup red lentils
2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 14-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk (see notes above for substitutes)
3 tablespoons unsweetened creamy almond butter
1/2 a small lemon, juiced
For serving: fresh cilantro, Basmati or Jasmine rice and naan bread
Heat a large, deep skillet or large saucepan over medium-high heat and add the coconut oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, and Serrano pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent garlic from burning. Then add the spices (cumin through cayenne pepper) and salt and pepper to taste, and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
Stir in the lentils, vegetable broth, and the crushed tomatoes and mix well. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan with a lid. Simmer for 20-25 minutes until the lentils are cooked through and have softened. If you find that the lentils are soft after 25 minutes, add a few spoons more of broth or water and cook for another 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and stir in the coconut milk, almond butter, and salt & pepper to taste Continue cooking on low heat, uncovered for 5-7 minutes. Finally, stir in the lemon juice and turn off the heat.
If you want your lentils to be creamier and more on the puréed side, use an immersion blender to lightly purée the curry.
Garnish with cilantro and serve with rice and/or naan bread.
