I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet. The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity. Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
This is a beautiful take on a classic chili and the addition of kale makes it hearty and nutritious. The black eyed peas provide a sturdy foundation for the plethora of spices, garlic, and onion that go into creating the flavor of this chili and the kale adds a nice bit of texture to make this recipe a ‘bowl’ in one.
This spring-inspired curry is incredibly simple, tantalizingly delicious, and hearty as well. The fresh (and frozen peas) are combined with tender fingerling potatoes and then simmered in a rich creamy curry that is charged with garlic, onions, and a complex bouquet of spices.
