Nourish — Vegetarian Pho
Sundays are my “me” days. They are my day to pause, slow down and really tune to what my body, mind and spirit are asking for. After a much needed massage and long nap, I woke up craving pho. Being on my cycle also has me looking for different nourishment, easy to digest and warming foods.
I decided to share this recipe with ya’ll because I believe that nourishing the body with good foods is healing and balancing. We can use food as medicine and take our wellbeing literally into our own hands.
I find it super healing and meditative to cook great meals for myself, pouring all my love into it and enjoying the fruits of my labor.
This recipe is really an easy one and should only take 15-20 minutes to make. If you like to meal plan, make extra broth and noodles for the next day or two.
I highly recommend that you take time to set the ambiance for your meal, activating as my friend Mel would say, ‘rest and digest.” To give your body the relaxed environment it needs to process and be present to enjoy the meal at hand.
If you make this, let me know how it goes in the comments or what you might have added or taken out!
Namaste ya’ll — Angie
