EAT THE RAINBOW 🍇🍈🍉🍊🍋🍌🍍🍎🍏🍐🍑🍒🍓🥝🍅🥑🍆🥕🌽🌶️🥒 When it comes to cooking I am always looking to create the most colorful dishes. After all people eat with their eyes first and pretty food just tastes better. You will always see lots and lots of color in my dishes. In addition to looking amazing on your plate, colorful food also has so many health benefits. The more colors you use, the more varied the nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins you are consuming. And these are vital to our body’s health and wellbeing. Our brains crave variety and mixing up your meals by using a combination of fruits and veggies keeps it interesting. The different colors trick your brain into being satisfied so you don’t overeat. The mind tells the body it’s full a lot quicker... So head over to my website melissamayo.com (link in my profile) for tons of free healthy and delicious rainbow colored recipes xxx Chef MM ______________________ ______________________ ______________________ #fitness #fitspo #healthy #plants #wellness #plantedbased #organic #vegansofig #rawfood #weightloss #detox #diet #cleanse #fresh #fruit #vegetables #veggies #green #juice #glow #nutrition #weightwatchers #salad #balance #inshape #fruits #salads
ROASTED ROOT VEGETABLES I would have to say that one of the staple foods on rotation in my kitchen is roasted veggies. I make them in bulk every week and I love the way the natural sugars in the veggies come to the surface. They sweet potatoes taste more like a dessert or pie and they are such good carbohydrates. I keep any left overs to add with protein to a brown rice or quinoa bowl the next day for lunch. And they are great warm as a side or even at room temperature. The trick is to not overcrowd them when you cook them. You can find this recipe on my website (link in my profile) along with tons of other healthy stuff. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do xxx Chef MM ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ #rainbow #eatclean #healthy #cleaneating #foodgram #eatlocal #chef #fitfam #recipe #nomnom #foodie #foodporn #foodgram #foodlover #yummy #delicious #southafrica #delizioso #fit #fitness #fitspo #fitmom #yum #produce #paleo #glutenfree #nocarbs #greens #losangeles
There are no words for this delicious savory coleslaw I threw together for shabbos. I served it with a mustard and tahina dressing. It was so insane. I'll be posting the recipe on my website this week.

I am a huge fan of salads. I’ve called this one “The Salad Bar Salad” because it’s got so much stuff to choose from. The best part is that by assembling the ingredients into rows, everyone can pick what they want to add to their salad. I for one cannot stand beans, so I can avoid them without denying those legume lovers their fix. And if you want a dairy free salad stay away from the cheese. I love the rainbow colors cause people eat with their eyes first. In this case pretty also means healthy cause it’s loaded with healthy veggies. And the mustardy dressing is incredible. You can find the recipe on my website under salads xxx Chef MM ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ #vegan #glutenfree #raw #paleo #vegetarian #plantedbased #organic #vegansofig #rawfood #weightloss #detox #diet #cleanse #fresh #fruit #vegetables #veggies #green #juice #glow #nutrition #weightwatchers #salad #balance #inshape #fruits #salads

When I'm crazy busy with not much time to cook I roast a whole bunch of veggies. I do it in bulk and use them for the rest of the week. It all depends what I have in the fridge. You can head to my website melissamayo.com for tons of free veggies recipes that are super easy, healthy and so delicious. I'm missing Lucca toady so these ones are inspired by the flavors of Italy 🇮🇹. Eggplant, fennel, red onion, tomatoes, peepers, zucchini and olives roasted with some garlic, oilve oil, balsamic, salt and pepper and a bunch of fresh basil. Delizioso ❤️❤️❤️xxx Chef ____________________ ____________________ ____________________ #nocarbs #organic #fitspo #foodporn #lucca #proudlysouthafrican #southafrica #chef #cheflife #delizioso @allclad

I ❤️ you a LATKE ?✡️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️?️ Latkes are potato pancakes, traditionally served during Hanukkah. The latkes are fried in oil to symbolize the ancient lamps that held only enough oil for one day, but magically burned for eight nights. They are as much a part of the holiday as the menorah and dreidel. But the truth is you don’t need to be Jewish to enjoy these. The perfect latke is crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft and moist inside. You can find the recipe on my site melissamayo.com The spin of the dreidel, the warm candlelight, May your Hanukkah be happy, healthy and bright! xxx Chef MM _____________________ _____________________ #potato #pancakes #menorah #dreidel #donut #sufganiyot #pancake #pomagranate #fruit #vegan #glutenfree #pancake #potatolatke #chag #jelly #holidays #thefeedfeed #fwx #huffposttaste #doughnuts #foodporn #proudlysouthafrican #food52 #foodie #melissamayo #chefmm #foodstyling #holiday #yum
