As the chillier weather sets in, we naturally start craving warm, comforting foods …some of which aren’t as healthy for our bodies as they could be. Well, here’s one that is. Not only is it enormously satisfying, it uses unsweetened coconut milk instead of the unusual milk or cream, which keeps things light. The whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to make, and can be done days ahead of time so when you need a simple meal, just open the fridge and reheat.
It’s also a great meal for transitioning out of a cleanse back to your regular eatings habits.
We consider it a triple threat: easy to make, good for you, and downright delicious. Enjoy!
