Winter Kale Bowl with Spiralized Beets and Goat Cheese

Meet the winter kale bowl: a bowl of massaged kale with festive, seasonal toppings like roasted spiralized beets, goat cheese, walnuts, and pomegranates.

It’s festive, it’s easy to make, full of nutrients, and frankly, looks like a bowl of Christmas with the red and green.

Speaking of the holidays, today, I’m sharing our holiday cards – and my Inspiralized holiday cards, thanks to Minted.

Before I get to my adorable holiday cards, let’s talk about this festive bowl. The beet noodles pair perfectly with the goat cheese and walnuts – it’s like a cheese platter! The pomegranates give the dish an extra pop of sweetness and adds color and texture to the dish.

This kale bowl can be customized to your liking – try adding different variations of spiralized veggies and toppings to make it your own! For example, don’t want to messy yourself with spiralizing beets? Use parsnips instead! Don’t like goat cheese? Try feta!

Some other fun combinations are:

  • Sweet potatoes, balsamic reduction, and cranberries
  • Butternut squash, fried egg, and feta
  • Bell peppers, black beans, cotija cheese, and toasted pepitas

Leafy greens, root veggies, velvety smooth cheese, and crunchy walnuts – this bowl will satisfy your tastebuds, fill your tummy, and leave you nourished!

Minted Holiday Cards

I love holiday cards, and I’m excited to share mine with you today!

Minted Holiday Cards Inspiralized

I’ve been using Minted for a while – I used them for a lot of my wedding stationary (for example, our Save The Dates) and I used them for last year’s holiday cards. They have the best designs, their customer service is amazing, and they offer time saving features like the Address Assistant, which lets you type in the addresses of the people you’re sending the card to and prints them on the envelopes. You can even customize your own stamps with little pictures of your family!

The only tough part about Minted is that they have SO many designs, that it can be difficult to choose – because they are all so cool! I went with a foil-pressed card that says “JOY” (last year our card said JOY as well) – and I love it, but here are some other cards I was thinking about choosing:

I was totally the girl who couldn’t wait to get married so that she could send out holiday cards each year of the family. When the holiday season came around last year (we got married last year), I was extra excited to be married – so that I could finally send out holiday cards.

Last year, we used our wedding photos, but this year, I decided to simply take a photo from one of the major events of the year that showed us together, enjoying our time together. I thought about paying for a photoshoot to get some professional photos, but then I thought, “What does that show?” It would be a staged photo! Instead, I chose this photo of us from a wedding we went to this year in Anguilla. We have big smiles on our faces, because one of our closest friends got married. Hopefully it radiates through the card!

This is the exact JOY card template we chose – it’s foil-pressed in rose gold!

I also got holiday cards as a business owner for Inspiralized. I work with so many people each year, and I value their support of Inspiralized so much (without them my brand couldn’t grow!), so I love sending hand-written notes to the people I’ve built working relationships with over the year/years. I wanted something simple and cheery, so I went with a simple Happy Holidays card with the word “Inspiralized” written on the front.

I can’t wait to send all of my cards out this year!

  • 1 large beet peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • salt and pepper
  • 3-4 cups chopped kale

Love this colorful variation, with its addition of pomegranate seeds and a few other tweaks, of what is one of my favorite Inspiralized recipes. I don't see the nutritional information, though, except for Weight Watcher points. Did I miss it?

At the bottom, in the Notes?

I made this salad tonight to go with our dinner and my children absolutely loved it! They were very skeptical at first, but one by one they all tried it and trusted the reviews of each other until everyone had a heaping helping on their plates. Thank you for the great recipe! I switched out the apple cider vinegar for some mango vinegar I had picked up in France but had yet to try out. It was delicious! Thanks again!
Teresa S says:

Patty says:
This salad is delicious! We used a golden beet, added juice of a small lime, and sliced a strawberry on top of each salad. Yum!

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas
...

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)
...

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
