In My Kitchen: What Odacité Founder Valerie Always Keeps On Hand

Adopting a healthy plant-based diet can sometimes be overwhelming with the abundance of health related articles, blogs and cookbooks cluttering the internet. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated and in fact once you have all the staples you can make some of the most simple nutritious meals. Today I am sharing some of my kitchen must-haves, including a few easy recipes, and my favorite morning wellness drink.  

 

IN MY FRIDGE:

Tons of greens​ : spinach, kale, arugula, romaine, parsley, coriander, watercress.

Chia seed pudding : It makes a super delicious healthy dessert for the whole family. View my favorite recipe HERE.

Lemons :  for lemon water and salad dressings​.​

 

IN MY PANTRY:

Raw ​Apple ​and cold pressed ​extra-​virgin olive oil for salad dressings

Coconut oil for all cooking

Selection of nuts for nut milk : I try to alternate every week between ​brazil nuts, almonds, sesame​,​ hemp​ and pumpkin.​

Fleur de sel: I know salt is not the healthiest food, but not all salts are created equals. Fleur de sel is ​the ​delicate crust on the surface of seawater as it evaporates.​ Super rich in minerals, to me it tastes like the ocean :-)​

Lots of spices : My favorites being cumin and garam masala as they make any quick last minute dish so delicious.

Recipe Tip: Try chickpea salad: one can chickpeas, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp cumin, salt and olive oil to taste. For quick tofu scramble: scramble tofu and saute in coconut oil with Garam masala.

 

IN THE MORNING:

Turmeric ​for my morning latte​:​ 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1/4 tsp coconut oil, 1 ​tsp Manuka​ honey,  2 oz hot water, 2 oz nut milk

 

PROTEIN:

Sunflower ​Paté: Being vegan I like to have a source of healthy protein​ easily available.​ I make a delicious sunflower pate blending soaked sunflower seeds with ​shallots, garlic lemon juice salt and pepper.

    Valerie, first all I love Odacite!! My skin is alive again! Secondly, where can I find the salt you were referring to?

    Turmeric . . . latte.
    Anti-inflammatory.
    A must try.
    I LOVE my skin since I began caring for it with Odacite. It will be one year in May.
    Thank you, Valerie.
