gluten free - dairy free - vegan
I was honored to be chosen recently as one of 30 bloggers in Lucky Foods recipe challenge. I wanted to make something still light enough for summer, but with depth of flavor and a little spice to match the heat of the outside temps.
I feel like we had been in a food rut when it came to lunches at home recently and I was so ecstatic to receive the box of goodies from Lucky Foods, including this spicy spin on mayo, ,The Seoul Kimchi Mayo is creamy, spicy and goes so well on bowls, salads and sandwiches. It was exactly what we needed to bring life back to lunch time!
I decided on a deconstructed vegan sushi bowl because I am a bowl lover and, as I said, I wanted to keep it light, cool, crunchy and fresh for summertime.
Lucky Foods is a family-owned and woman-owned company. Their vegan and gluten free spring rolls have been a staple in our home and I was so excited when they expanded to sauces to spruce up our homemade dishes as well.

gluten free - egg free - paleo - AIP - dairy free - soy free
Well. Here we are. Back on the AIP diet.
As hard as this is to work in with a busy schedule, a career and a toddler, I am SO thanfkul to the holistic professionals who found out that this diet is SO healing and SO beneficial to calming our inflammation and auto-immune issues. And PRAISE THE LORD for meal prep. You NEED to be meal prepping. If you ever need help, reach out! I can talk to you about some easy tips.
I've found for me, it's 100% needed to come back to this from time to time when I feel myself more sluggish, carrying excess water, inflamed or reacting more from cross-contamination. I haven't put many AIP recipes on the blog, because honestly, when I'm on AIP it means I'm not at my best and the energy for recipe creation and promotion usually isn't there. However, I am trying to turn a new leaf.
I was so blessed in 2012 when this blog really started to take off because of the connections I was making with so many women, men and children who were needing to go gluten free, dairy free or soy free and it made my heart so happy to know I could provide safe and yummy recipes to those who needed them in their season or life of food restriction.
I want to make it a point to add more healing foods, more AIP options and more whole choices when it comes to entrees in 2019/2020.
The baked goods are pretty and fun guys, but they have their place. And unfortunately their place isn't in my home or body right now.
For this recipe, I've found it's hard to find organic ground chicken in the stores. If you invest in a meat grinder, you'll be able to grind higher quality poultry to make this recipe.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
