My Recent BEST Purchases: Dr. Cowan’s Powders & Instant Pot Smart

Instant Pot to the rescue for easy food prep.

I recently waxed poetically about my Instant Pot – Smart.

The love for my kitchen robot appliance continues to grow.

I have immense gratitude for how it has made my life easier to effortlessly get more vegetables into my life (and my family’s).

Case in point.

Super fast lunch of purple carrots.

I simply scrubbed the organic carrots, broke them in half (the ones that didn’t fit in “whole”), and cooked for only three minutes under high pressure.

Tossed them in a bowl with nutritious grass-fed butter, sea salt, fresh organic rosemary, and….

… my other NEW trick for getting EVEN MORE veggies into my family’s life: Veggie powders, but not just any veggie powders. These are veggie powders with a mission!

See those jars in the picture? See the green stuff on my carrots?

Those tasty powders are from the brilliant Dr. Cowan and his Garden Vegetable Powders. Honestly, I want to rave continuously about these veggie powders. Instead, I’ll guide you to the place I first heard of them: Chris Kresser’s podcast (do yourself a favor and listen to it). You’ll learn the importance of VARIETY when it comes to vegetables and how it’s not necessarily easy to do that.

Until now.

With Dr. Cowan’s extremely cool, bad-ass garden vegetable powders. 

My carrot lunch above included Dr. Cowan’s leek powder (one of my favorites!!!) and the perennial greens. A mere 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon each and I’m bombarding my body with vegetables.

These powders are a brilliant way to increase veggies in your family’s life by adding them to soups, marinara, buttered toast, eggs, pies, smoothies, bread puddings, veggies, oatmeal, yogurts, sauerkraut, broth, chicken dishes, burgers, sauces and so much more.

The sky is the limit.

This morning I added them to my homemade grass-fed kefir (to which I also added a bit of homemade yogurt).

I made a most delicious savory breakfast kefir that blew my mind. I loaded my body with gut-healthy probiotics along with the foods (the veggie powders) to help feed them.

Edit September 16, 2016: I changed the basic link of Dr. Cowen’s to an affiliate link today. I signed up for their affiliate program, because I love their products so much and I use them every day. If you purchase through them, you can help me buy more of those awesome vegetable powders.
