PLANT-BASED FOODS I LOVE
LEMONS: Lemons have cleaning & detoxifying properties. They also contain anti-oxidant and immune boosting vitamin C! I love adding fresh lemon juice to a morning smoothie, a cup of tea or just enjoying hot lemon water throughout the day!

DARK LEAFY GREENS: What I love about dark leafy greens is that they are packed with fiber, iron & calcium! For those that eat dairy-free like me, it’s important to find plant-based sources of calcium such as dark leafy greens. Here are a few recipes I’ve shared on my channel that incorporate greens!
LEGUMES Legumes also known as beans or pulses are a great staple in a plant-based diet. Beans are packed with protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. In fact, 1 cup of lentil has 19 grams of protein!! We have a lot of recipe videos that incorporate beans; here are a few to check out!
NUTS & SEEDS: Nuts & seeds are great because they are versatile; they contain protein, fiber & healthy fats. Nut butters are also great on toast or added to a smoothie. Chia seeds, hemp seeds & flax seeds contains omega 3s which have been known to support brain & heart health! Sunflower seeds are great in tacos or salads. Almonds, walnuts & pistachios are a great snack!
GINGER & TURMERIC: Turmeric contains a compound known as curcumin, which addresses inflammation associated with physical activity and lifestyle.* This versatile herb is used in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese for a variety of reasons: to support everything from digestion and the respiratory system to everyday discomfort.
Ginger has similar warming properties and has also been known to help with nausea relief, boosting the immune system and digestion.*
Lastly, staying hydrated is crucial for our health! Tea is one of my favorite ways to nourish my body & also hydrate at the same time! Traditional Medicinals is a brand of tea that I love because of the quality of their teas. They are committed to using pharmacopoeial grade herbs. Basically this means that their herbs are high quality & medicinal grade to deliver their intended health and wellness benefits. They also have rigorous quality control methods to ensure the purity of your tea! Their teas also taste fantastic.
Turmeric with Meadowsweet with Ginger is a tea I’ve been drinking lately! You can find my recipe for Turmeric Ginger Tea Latte right on this blog right below the video.
