Our instructors love their superfoods, which inspired this awesome breakfast dish, Bircher Muesli With Almond Milk. This recipe utilizes the different types of superfoods all in one delicious and nutritious meal. There are many variations to the dish and Kate F. suggests exploring your favorite fruits and yogurts to achieve the sense of energy and joy this breakfast entree brings her.
This Tofu Burger is definitely a dish that Katharine (we miss you!) and Kate R. would approve of. Our BECYCLE instructors have expressed how cutting out meat has been quite beneficial for their overall energy and health. Kate R. even feels how the transition to a meatless diet has led her to a clearer conscious about the environment and impact on the planet. Created by True Food Kitchen's very own Dr. Richard Weil, this recipe has amazing flavors that will convince your taste buds that you are eating a good "meaty" burger.
CREAMY PEA AND SPINACH PASTA
The Creamy Pea and Spinach Pasta is a great choice for a quick lunch break, loosely inspired by our BECYCLE's own, Shirah. This easy dish includes some of Shirah's main components of her daily diet regime. This recipe, created by Deliciously Ella, only takes ten minutes to prepare and abides by a vegetarian lifestyle. Be sure to add your own creative twist such as adding a plant based protein on top, or serve it up with some sweet potatoes mixed in to kickstart your tastebuds.
Faren (we miss you, too!) and Bradyn are game for the Quinoa Tabbouleh as a meal to end the day. Hailing from Hemsley & Hemsley, the Quinoa Tabbouleh is the perfect summertime dish that provides an amazing taste to end a long, energy draining day. This recipe includes ingredients such as avocado, quinoa, spinach and many more essential nutrients for a vegetarian lifestyle. There is very little preparation, and Faren would agree that it even tastes better the days following. Yes, I'll take those leftovers!
