A peek at my plate (morning, noon and night!)
This week, I finally made the video that everyone’s been asking me to make. It’s the answer to the number one question I get asked: “What do YOU eat, Kris?” So here’s a little show and tell, an up close and personal peek at MY eats!
In this video, you’ll see everything I made (and ate) for the day, which of course includes a boatload of green juice. Some of the delicious recipes can be found in Crazy Sexy Kitchen, while others are my go-to, everyday staples. All of the dishes are 100 percent plant-empowered, easy and quick. Hey, I filmed this on a spectacular fall day. You better believe I chose simple meals that would allow me to play in the autumn light and soak in the crimson.
I hope my little food tour inspires you to get creative in the kitchen. Remember, variety is the spice of life and the heart of a healthy diet. Every day brings new opportunities for fun and folly in the kitchen. Tomorrow, I’ll probably start my day with a green smoothie, then if I’m still hungry, I’ll make the hot Coconut and Mango Millet porridge from my cookbook. At lunch, I just might get a hankering for some hearty Crazy Sexy Bean Chili. Thankfully, I made and froze a big batch a few weeks ago. Defrost and a-go-go! And if I find myself in the middle of a snack attack, there are lots of recipes to choose from at KrisCarr.com and in Crazy Sexy Kitchen.
By the way, lately I’ve been obsessed with Brazil nuts (a great source of selenium, which helps boost metabolism and reduce inflammation). I toss a small handful in my smoothies and store them like dog treats (but for people) in my pockets.
If you have a question, leave a comment below. I’ll do my best to answer as many as possible.
Or if you’ve got a plant-passionate dish, tip or trick to share, let us know in the comments section! We’d all love to know.
OK, press play.
Peace & cookin’,
