Vegan Quinoa Bowl

Vegan Quinoa Bowl

This is a delicious vegan quinoa bowl that I love! Not only do I feel better and leaner than ever by eating vegan…I really do love getting creative with all of the amazing organic vegetables that the Farmer’s Markets have to offer! I’ve also been struggling with anxiety and depression, which you can read about here, and vegetables have SO many health benefits that eating them in higher doses has really lifted my spirits!

I presented leafy greens and sweet potato bowl, and I also talked about how working out really changed my life.

Now I’m here to share a delicious vegan quinoa bowl full of amazing ingredients that you can cook ahead of time and store separately. All you need to do when you’re ready to build is cook each item separately (I heat mine up in a skillet with coconut oil) and build away!

To start, you’re going to cook a batch of quinoa. However you like it! I usually put salt, pepper and garlic powder in my quinoa while it’s cooking to give it a little extra flavor. I also like to add turmeric because it has so many health benefits – including reducing brain inflammation that has been linked to depression!

Next, you’re going to saute some kale in toasted sesame oil and a little salt only until lightly wilted and bright green. Keep those nutrients alive! After that, dice some sweet potatoes and toss in smoked paprika, salt, pepper, and oil and roast in a 425 F oven for 10 minutes. Mix and cook for another 10 minutes. Mix again and cook for another 10 if needed! I like mine to have a bit of crisp.

Cook some black beans and saute with diced zucchini and set those aside! Caramelize red onions and saute mushrooms in minced garlic and coconut oil. Slice half of an avocado and fresh green onions. Build your vegan quinoa bowl starting with the quinoa and add as much or as little of everything else as you’d like! I like to top mine with sesame seeds. So delicious!

Check out the nutritional info for each ingredient they’re all superfoods!


Quinoa

Quinoa is high in protein and low in saturated fats, which can make it a better source of protein than red meat. A study conducted in Brazil in 2009 also showed that quinoa helped reduce the blood glucose levels of diabetic patients. Consuming quinoa on a regular basis can also help to lower blood pressure, suppress the appetite, and help to slow the aging process.

Quinoa - One of many superfoods in this vegan quinoa bowl.

Black Beans

Black beans are PACKED with protein but contain none of the saturated fats that other sources of protein do (like red meat). One cup of black beans contains 50% of your daily recommended dosage of fiber and about 20% of your daily recommended serving of iron!

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.

Kale

Kale is low in calorie, high in fiber and has zero fat. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It is great for aiding in digestion and elimination with its great fiber content. It’s also filled with so many nutrients, vitamins, folate and magnesium.

Onions

Onions also contain allicin which can help fight cancer in the gut. A healthy digestive tract can also alleviate negative moods due to the anti-inflammatory flavonoid antioxidants they contain.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms help to regulate your blood insulin which helps lower your blood sugar and can even out your mood. Mushrooms also have probiotic affects and promote healthy bacteria in your digestive tract. The nerve cells in our gut actually produce about 80 to 90% of the serotonin in our body. Again, serotonin is the critical neurotransmitter that helps to regulate our moods. Focusing on our intestinal health is a major component in combatting depression and anxiety.

Avocados

Avocado 2s

Avocados are one of the most popular out of the superfoods because they taste good, and they contain that GOOD fat. Oleic Acid, which is found in avocados, can actually be known to stifle hunger! So if you’re craving something to eat or thinking about a late night snack, grab an avocado and fight off your hunger! This fruit is also packed with protein and fiber!

A delicious vegan quinoa bowl for any meal of the day!

  15. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
