Ultimate Detoxifying & Healing Nutrient Bowl
This week I had several individuals who were dealing with very different health concerns: kidney stones, postpartum weight retention, hormonal imbalance due to major surgery, depression, migraines and skin issues. At the core of all of these concerns is the need to detoxify the body from compounds natural and unnatural that are contributing to the issues and to nourish specific nutrient needs to support the healing process.
With all this in mind, I created a recipe for a delicious, nutritious Buddha bowl! Below is the exact recipe I sent out to clients to get them on the road to health. Try it out and make it your own!
Each ingredient was selected for specific health purposes, so be prepared to detox. Additionally, if there is an ingredient you straight up don’t like, don’t put it in there. This is your Buddha bowl and health after all.
*As the intentions of this recipe are detoxification and healing, it’s best to choose organic ingredients if possible.
¼ Cup Millet, Dry
½ Cup Water
1 Tsp. Curry powder - Without salt.
½ Tsp. Grapeseed Oil
1 Cup Kale, Chopped
½ Cup Red Cabbage, Chopped
1 Carrot, Chopped,
½ Cup Cucumber, Sliced
½ Cup Bell Pepper, Chopped - More than one color if you want to get all fancy.
¼ Cup Parsley, Chopped - Total game changing ingredient!
¼ Cup Beets, Sliced - Raw/Steamed/Boiled/Roasted - However you like.
¼ Cup Celery, Chopped
1 Radish, Sliced
2 TBS. Kidney Beans, Rinsed - These support kidney health.
1 TBS. Pumpkin Seeds
1 TBS. Apple Cider Vinegar - Raw, Unfiltered & with the ‘Mother.’
1 Tsp. Grapeseed Oil
Cook millet in water, curry powder & oil. I used my rice cooker to save time and chance of burning, but you can bring all ingredients to a boil in sauce pan on stove top. Cooks up fairly quickly so keep your eye on it!
While curry millet is cooking up:
Arrange all chopped veggies in bowl and drizzle with apple cider vinegar and grapeseed oil. I used my kale as the base to put everything on.
Top with millet and pumpkin seeds.
Tips & Tricks
This recipe is great for making ahead of time too! If you’re already in the kitchen washing and chopping all this produce, may as well make several for the upcoming days. This helps you continue towards your health goals and makes life easier overall.
You can serve this dish up hot as well. This is a crazy notion at the moment as it’s been 115 degrees for a week now in Phoenix, Arizona. If you’re not sweltering in ungodly temperatures or want to enjoy a hot meal under the AC, simply take out the cucumbers and radish. Place all ingredients in a sauté pan and heat it up! You can enjoy your cucumbers and radishes on the side.
If you're going to heat it up, add in an egg and serve it up almost like a curry style, fried rice! A great way to get in more protein and healing nutrients.
