Gluten Free Green Bean Buddha Bowl with Tahini Drizzle Recipe

Cooking is all about creativity. Something I taught myself on my 10-year journey of chronic illness was to include creativity in my life – especially my food! While everyone else was out drinking beer and eating pizza (which I couldn’t do) I made my life extra special by using ingredients such as tahini, lemon juice, fresh herbs, brightly colored fruits and veggies to whip up extraordinary meals that made me happy and helped with my healing. We can eat all the kale in the world and still be unhealthy, which is why it’s so important to focus on the mind-body connection and have fun in your kitchen. This is just the recipe to get you started!
