JAPANESE POTATO, BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND KALE BOWL

This is a great example of putting a dinner together with everything I had in my kitchen. Some days you just don't have time (or energy, let's be real) to make it to the grocery store and have to work with what you've got. I threw everything in a bowl and I have to tell you, it was delicious. 

Brussels sprouts have fiber and are also a plant based protein source. Some people wonder how to eat enough protein on a plant based diet and are surprised to learn that there are so many plant based protein sources. When you're eating an abundant plant based diet you will get all the protein you need. One of the many reasons I love eating plant based: no counting calories or trying to figure out suggested daily values of anything. Have a variety of plant based foods, eat until you're satisfied, and then you're set.
