Spaghetti Squash Yoga Bowl
The past two Saturday mornings I have happily toted my mat across town for a group yoga session and core workout under huge, spreading oaks in Golden Gate Park. It’s a perfect way to kick-start the weekend, and has left me feeling refreshed, centered and energized both times. Yesterday I arrived back at my apartment afterward craving something with tons of texture and flavor, but with a plant-forward twist. The First Mess’ gorgeous spaghetti squash bowl crossed my mind, so here’s my (streamlined, Paleo-friendly) take on her recipe plus a little tribute to the enjoyment of an outdoor workout with a great group of fitness-minded folks each weekend.
The sauce is thick and tangy-sweet, helping to cut the bitterness of the broccolini and kale. I added a sprinkle of red chili flakes for a bit of spark on a cloudy day, but omit if you prefer a milder finish. This recipe is vegan in order to really let the vegetables shine, but there’s plenty of fat in the sauce for flavor and satiety. If you really love meat with every meal, however, I think chopped chicken or maybe shredded pork would work in this.
