Happy Recipe Friday!
Today we will be featuring Krystelle Fournier, founder and author of Conscious Cooking! Her motto – “Be Conscious. Take Action. Live Better.”
Hi, I’m Krystelle. I’m a Certified Health Coach, a Vegan Chef, a student in nutrition, and the founder of Conscious Cooking. As you can see, I’m very passionate about natural health and nutrition. My mission is to help, teach, and inspire others to improve the quality of their lives with good nutrition so they can live their life to its fullest with energy and vitality.
I believe that we should mainly eat from plants and detoxify ourselves regularly. Fruitive is a wonderful company that promotes both a plant-based lifestyle and detoxifying juice cleanses. They use superfoods and high-quality ingredients, which promote optimum health. I believe in real, whole, local, and seasonal foods. I love to create recipes that are fresh, simple, and delicious. I also love to educate people about healthy eating and cooking. On my blog, I share a lot of healthy tips, articles and recipes to help you get healthier and live better. The recipe I’m sharing with you all today is Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Spinach Stew. It’s super delicious! Plus, it’s a very warming and comforting meal that is perfect for this time of the year!
