Need a Lunch or Dinner that will fill you up and is full of flavor? Sweet Earth and I have your back! I take my favorite three plant-based ingredients and use them as bases for my regularly made recipes!
-Mindful Chik'n has 19G of protein and 6G of fiber that has the mouthwatering taste and texture of traditional chicken. It is the perfect addition to weeknight meal prep, salads and other recipes
-I used this to make a chicken salad sandwich that is AH-MAZING! Simply mix 1 TB of avocado-oil based mayo + 1 tsp of Dijon mustard with 1/2 cup of prepared Mindful Chik'n and place it atop toasted whole grain bread with lettuce, avocado, + tomato slices.
-Sweet Earth's Awesome Grounds are non-GMO and provide the same plant-based protein (16g) and fiber (4g) as the Awesome Burger, only in a ground version that allows greater flexibility to cook various meals and sides, such as meatballs and tacos.
-Stir fry is a meal you can make colorful with a few cups of a variety of produce, a serving og whole grains like black or brown rice or ramen noodles, with a plant-based protein like these grounds. Top with any sauce you'd like and you have a quick and easy meal!
-I love #tacotuesday and in any variation. I prep the Awesome Grounds with Mindful Chik'n with heated corn tortillas, grilled veggies like bell peppers and scallions, guacamole, salsa, + any raw veggie add-ins I want to make a simple meal in under 15 minutes.
-The Awesome Burger is Sweet Earth's new plant-based burger that satisfies cravings for the meaty, juicy taste of a traditional burger, while providing plant-based nutrition and goodness. It is packed with protein (26 grams) and fiber (6 grams) - recently launched
-This can be done in SO many ways. Simply put, prepare the burger and top it with ANYTHING! My favorite is grilled red onion, tomato, lettuce, American cheese, + a dose of my mayo-ketchup mix on top. Being gluten-free, I use a cabbage leaf as a wrap, but I recommend whole grain buns to clients.
