Once or twice a week, its advisable to cleanse your body through nourishing foods. Eating only plant based foods.
Recent researches are showing the power of following a plant based diet, to support bone and overall health, plants are full of not only crucial vitamins for your health but the minerals too your bones and body needs, I’m personally not a vegan, nor a vegetarian, as I believe in a varied diet, that will supply you with all the Macro & Micro nutrients you need, I’ve also come a long way healing my body, so am able to eat most foods, however this may not be the case for everyone, and for some individuals, its advisable to follow a plant based diet, this recipe is not only nutritious, but can also be eaten by most people, if you are vegan, you can replace the ghee I’m using here with coconut oil.

Chop all the vegetables in manageable bite sizes, then start by sautéing the chopped onions, garlic, celery, leak, ginger & turmeric, once translucent, add the rest of the vegetables, salt, 1/2 a glass of filtered water & cook for 5 minutes, then after transfer the vegetables to a casserole or tagine dish, place in a hot oven and cook for approximately 45 minutes, before serving, chop the parsley, coriander and add to the tagine along with the black pepper.
I like to serve it with Cauliflower rice that is mixed with pomegranate for that extra anti oxident hit. You can find the recipe here.
