February in New York is brutal – between the relentless snow and frigid (yes – single digit) temperatures, we are in desperate need of warmth and renewal. I found rejuvenation and nourishment this week in the form of a self-love Valentines Day celebration filled with yoga, a spiritual cleanse and a body melting massage followed by this beautiful macro bowl.
It is the perfect time of year for the macro bowl. While it calls for liver-cleansing winter vegetables like kale and cauliflower, it also summons spring with sprouted mung beans. Mung bean sprouts are an incredible source of energy and vitality – they are beneficial to the gallbladder, stimulating detoxification and also improving circulation. They are better digested than other legumes because of their higher enzyme content. Enjoy the many flavors and textures of the macro bowl. Bon appétit!
