How Many Veggies In a Glorious One-Pot Meal?

Reader question: Hi Elizabeth! Thank you for your talk last week at the over 50 summit. I’m a BLE eater and just purchased yr cookbook. We eat a lot of veggies. Can we double the veggies in yr recipes and expect a good outcome? Thx so much. ~ Mary V.

Hi Mary!

I’m thrilled to learn that you enjoyed my masterclass on the weight-loss inflammation connection and have purchased Glorious One-Pot Meals! It will become an invaluable tool to use for following the Bright Line Eating plan as every single ingredient in every single recipe can be substituted or omitted without a hitch.

To answer your specific question: YES! Of course you can double or triple the amount of veggies in a meal, or even make a 100% vegetable recipe! You’ll even find an entire Vegetarian section in the cookbook to give you some inspiration, but every recipe could easily contain more vegetables and less or no meat or grains. Once you understand the technique, you’ll make very GOPM exactly the way you want it to be, with whatever ingredients and flavors you choose to include.

The only time to pay a bit more attention is when you want to include grains like rice or quinoa, pasta, or other dry goods. Then you’ll want to be sure to check with the Common Measurements section in the front of the book to determine exactly how much liquid you need to hydrate that dry good.

There are lots of video demonstrations on this website and on my YouTube channels to help you along the way.  🙂

Happy cooking! ~Elizabeth

Miss Paleo Mixes up Gluten-Free Brownies

Sometimes life calls for brownies. If you are gluten-free, that can be challenging to accomplish.brownie_mix

I received a sample of a grain-free and gluten-free brownie from Miss Paleo Mixes and was surprised at how yummy they were.

Miss Paleo Mixes are made with almond meal and contain no refined sugars or additives. They are made with coconut palm sugar, or come sugar-free with pure birch xylitol as a sweetener.

Having a pre-made mix makes it easy to whip up a batch of gluten-free brownies  in the blink of an eye, or in time to bring to school for that class party that your child neglected to mention until the night before.

I recommend keeping a few pouches in your pantry for emergencies like this!
