Power Up your 2019 with these Power Bowl Recipes

Plant Based Power Bowls are a great way to use up leftovers or make a full week's meals by preparing the ingredients separately then mixing and matching them throughout the week.

I recommend making 2 grains, 2 sauces, having lots of chopped raw veggies and spinach/kale/cabbage as well having 2 proteins (beans, tofu, hummus) on hand to get a week's worth of meals.

To make a balanced plant-based power bowl, mix items from each column and top with sauce.

Tropical Coconut Lime Dairy Free “Yogurt”

Tropical Coconut Lime Dairy Free “Yogurt” 

2 cups young coconut meat ½ cup water or coconut milk Zest of 2 limes Juice of 1 lime 1 tablespoon maple syrup Contents of 2 probiotic capsules
If you purchased frozen young coconut meat, let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Add all ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender and blend until smooth. The mixture will be thicker than milk based yogurt but thinner than Greek yogurt, it will firm up over a few days in the refrigerator.
Young coconut meat is an excellent source of fiber and live enzymes. Because of the fiber content, this “yogurt” is filling, try a small serving (1/3 cup) at first. Top with fresh berries, ground flax seeds, hemp hearts, ground ginger, or fresh mint.
