Winter Nourish Bowl with Green Pumpkin Seed Sauce

Winter Nourish Bowl with Green Pumpkin Seed Sauce

I should’ve planned out the beginning of this year better.

I worked pretty hard at the end of last year. At one point, I was juggling 5 jobs. Literally. (The woahs of freelance life are, well, filled with woah.)

If I were smart, I would’ve planned a getaway for the first few months of 2014 to the land of warmth and the free. What land that might be, I don’t really care. This past week in Philadelphia was brutal, and I would’ve killed to be working remotely in a far away town. You feel me? Add some waves and fresh fruit, and we could’ve really rung in the New Year right. Forget all this cold January nonsense.

Cilantro

Looks like I’ll be hustling extra hard to make that happen next winter. Another New Years resolution to add to the list? Maybe. For all you other northeasterns (and everywhere else it’s cold), I say we do it together.

In the meantime, you can find me snuggling up with warm bowls of comfort like this. Think lots of hearty winter squash and sweet potatoes, and nourishing whole grains and legumes. This will be a year of health, an on-going resolution I strive to keep because I know when I’m eating my best, I’m feeling my best. I’m sure you can agree.

Winter Veggies

This particular wholesome meal was triggered by a recipe I saw on My New Roots. Sarah, the author, runs the kind of blog I could stare at for hours, filled with tons of inspiring photos and lots of inventive healthy recipes. Check her out if you don’t know her already.

Feel free to add your own winter ingredients to this. I could envision steamed turnips thrown on top, or kohlrabi sliced into matchsticks and included with the raw component. Toasted sesame seeds make a great addition too. I tossed a few on top the next day.

Eat light, eat right. That’s the motto I strive to abide by the week before every holiday feast.

With the presence of more casseroles, desserts and traditions than one girl’s body could ever need, I like to prepare in advance. Unfortunately, this is NOT always an easy task.

My kitchen’s been under a persistent state of production since Monday in preparation for Thanksgiving. And I’m not even hosting the feast. I will, however, be bringing two dishes to the table, a large basket of biscuits included.

It’s these buttery biscuits that are negating my motto. Never in my life have I made biscuits (the horror of this statement!). This, of course, means I must taste each batch as they come out of the oven, hours after dinner’s been served.

Like a cookie, one flaky biscuit leads to two, and before I know it, I’m not doing so hot with the whole eat light goal for the week. Oh well. Biscuits are worth it, especially when sampling two different varieties. Somehow, I’ve convinced myself 6:30 AM runs are worth it, too. No doubt, those will be the life and death of me.

Anyway, when constant cooking and cleaning is going down in the kitchen, simple, one-pot meals like these are essential. This one’s healthy, too, so you can feel good about eating this for any meal during the days leading up to, or following, a hearty holiday meal. Eat light, eat right, eat this. Little mess included.
