Beauty Nutrition Interview + My Beauty Bowl Recipe!

Beauty Bowl

What a fun morning!

Myself and one of my favourite fellow wellness entrepreneurs Laura Wheeler just wrapped up a segment with CTV Morning Live sharing some of our top beauty boosting tips, plus a delicious recipe. Check out our segment below, try out our Beauty Bowl recipe, and be sure to browse my skincare crush; Celavive (scroll to the bottom)! 

 

 

 

BEAUTY BOWL + Hummus Dill Dressing Recipe 

In my house, my beauty bowl foundation is approx 1/3 grain, bean or legumes (chickpeas, black beans, brown rice, quinoa, etc), with the remaining ingredients being a mixture of all the best veggies I can find; sprouts, greens, even edible flowers like nasturtiums. Below is a loose recipe guide (they're simply never the same in my kitchen), which is one reason why I love Beauty Bowls so much; it's a new adventure every time. I encourage you to have fun and play around to your personal preference! 

 

BEAUTY BOWL

serves 1-2

1/2 cup grains, beans, or legumes (I love roasted chickpeas, brown rice, quinoa, etc)

1/2 cup organic greens

1/2 cup roasted sweet potato 

1/2 avocado, sliced 

2 tablespoons seeds/nuts (sunflower, pumpkin, cashews, sliced almonds, etc)

1/2 cup shredded beet, carrots or zucchini 

Small handful of sprouts

 

Arrange all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

Be intentional and take the time to make it pretty (it tastes better that way;)

 

 

HUMMUS DILL DRESSING 

(serves 1-2)

Dill Hummus Dressing (vegan)

1/4 cup hummus (or tahini) 

1/4 lemon, juiced

1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped

Dash of salt & pepper

Add all ingredients into a jar with a lid. Give it a good shake until everything is combined well. Depending on the consistency of your hummus, you may want to add a couple teaspoons of warm water to thin it out a bit. 

Not a fan of dill?

You can easily swap it for any herb of your choice; basil, thyme, parsley... again, get creative.

Ready to shine inside AND out?

Pairing my beautifying recipes with my favourite skincare is your answer! 

As Laura mentioned in our segment, we need to be cautious as to what goes on our skin for many reasons. I'm a big fan of botanical (yet scientifically backed) products for the best results for my skin. 

I personally use (and LOVE) Celavive.
