Who Says That You Can't Have Health & Tasty At The Same Time?

Who says that you can’t have healthy and tasty at the same time? My wife and I had an amazing dinner last night courtesy of SunBasket. This one was an instant classic: White bean tostadas with blackberry salsa and pumpkin seed dukkah.

The tostada part alone “had me at hello,” but it was the other components that elevate the tastiness & healthiness factors to another level. White beans are always nutrient-dense, high in fiber and add a protein power punch. Avocados are incredibly nutritious and are cholesterol-free, extremely low in sodium, high in vitamin C & potassium (the latter being linked to reduced blood pressure), and is loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Blackberries should be at the top of anyone’s healthy fruit list as they are a delicious addition to any diet. They are packed full of essential nutrients & antioxidants to keep your body in top functioning mode while simultaneously lowering blood sugar levels, maintaining healthy cholesterol and supporting healthy digestion because of their high fiber content. Dukkah is not only an amazing seasoning, but its unique flavor profile offers many health benefits. This spice blend has tons of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and monounsaturated fats to assist in lowering cholesterol, stabilizing diabetes, and the fiber content will keep you feeling satisfied not just from a taste bud explosion but also in its ability to resist the temptation to overeat. Overall, this dish hits a homerun every single time you serve it! Bon appétit for this vegan treat!

Note: This is not a paid promotion. My wife and I just love to prepare (and eat) Sunbasket meals!
