Beauty Boosting Poké Bowl: Low Carb, Gluten and Grain Free (Paleo)

I love poke! Poké is causing a stir for good reasons; it’s fresh, tasty and super healthy. Loaded with fresh whole foods, it provides a good dose of healthy fats including omega 3’s, vegies and protein. Skip the rice for a low carb option.

I call this a beauty bowl due to the healthy fats and fermented kimchi as well as the vitamin and minerals contained in fresh vegies. Kimchi is fermented veggies blended with a good dose of spice. Fermenting vegies increases nutritional value by activating the enzymes which increases the vitamin and mineral absorption and promotes healthy gut bacteria growth.

Ingredients

120g sashimi grade salmon (if it’s not available to you, use cooked, smoked or canned salmon)

50g avocado

30g Kimchi

Handful of baby spinach

1 tomato chopped

30g mixed nuts (optional)

1 lemon wedge

Any other veggies you please or make it tropical and add mango or pineapple

1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and drizzle with lemon

2. Feel your taste buds and body thank you
