Ginger Garlic Sauté
I love making a big batch of this as a side or a light lunch during the week. The combination of ginger and garlic simply can’t be beat and adds a punch to any meal. Loaded with healthy hormone balancing purple cabbage, carrots and sesame, this makes for a great side along chicken.
- 2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cups shredded purple cabbage
- sea salt and black pepper
- 1 inch piece of ginger, grated
- 2 large carrots, shredded
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
Toast sesame seeds by heating a dry sauté pan on low flame. When the pan is hot, add the sesame seeds. Toast for about 2 minutes until golden. Remove the sesame seeds from the pan so that they don't continue cooking. Set aside to use in the final step
Take a sauté pan and add 1 Tbsp of coconut oil.
When the pan is hot, add the onions.
Sauté until soft.
Add purple cabbage, salt, black pepper.
Allow the cabbage to soften.
Add ginger, shredded carrots and garlic.
Sauté for 2 minutes.
When the cabbage and other vegetables are soft to your liking, turn off the flame and top with toasted sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds.
Making vegetables exciting will strengthen your ability to maintain a healthy diet that encourages energy and healthy digestion.
So many people fall off the wagon because they think healthy eating has to be bland. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Eating well isn’t about encouraging boredom and blandness, it’s about nourishment on a deeper level, and pleasing your tastebuds and your body at the same time.

I suffered for years from fatigue, anxiety, depression, hormone issues, digestive issues and just overall not feeling like I felt I should. I thought maybe it was just because I was a mom and my kids had sucked the life out of me. My doctor told me I was just getting older.
I couldn’t accept that this was how I would feel everyday, I wanted to enjoy time with my kids, not dread them asking me to play with them.
Fast forward through many health struggles and now I finally feel like I am in control of my health.
It has been a long journey to get to where I am now but what I have learned is that the basic principles of health, are some of the most important pieces of where I am today. Understanding what your body needs to function at it’s best is one of the most powerful tools, it’s not some fancy, expensive gadget or supplement. It’s the basics that are important! Diet and Lifestyle can make a huge impact on your health and well being.
My mission is to teach other moms how to take back their health, energy and mood naturally. Empowering them to take charge of their own health and well being, as well as raise healthy, happy kids.
