Gorgeous, Gourmet, Gluten-free

I seriously don’t know why the world doesn’t accept veggies as the master of all foods. I made myself the following for lunch and not only felt great because it was so healthy, I also felt empowered and fulfilled!

    Steamed kale and mushrooms with sweet potato and Greek yogurt

Directions:
-Bring 2 to 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil.
-While bringing to a boil, thoroughly wash kale and mushrooms.
-Pull apart pieces of kale. Cut mushrooms.
-Put both kale and mushrooms into boiling water. Cover and let cook.
-Thoroughly wash skin of sweet potato.
-Poke holes in sweet potato; put on microwave safe plate. Microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. After 2 1/2 minutes, flip potato. Let cook again for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes more, depending on the size of the potato.
-Check on the kale and mushrooms about five minutes into its cooking process. Let the kale and mushrooms cook for 10 minutes total.
-Season your sweet potato as you like. I made mine into a dessert with drizzled honey and cinnamon. Combined with my Yoplait coconut Greek yogurt, my sweet tooth was pleased as punch!

My lunch was delicious, healthy, filling, and so beautiful. Look at the colors! Note: if you long for a more filling lunch, watch what you reach for! Keep quinoa, brown rice pasta, garbanzo beans, or brown rice handy. These are better options than even corn or rice flour pastas.

How do you make your meals healthy and tasting fantastic?

    • The Giant Eagle at McIntyre Square! (Not even a Market District, although they have more options there)
