Hasselback Potato and Butter Bean Nourish Bowl

"Who else loves colourful food? I know that personally, eating a variety of fruits and vegetables helps make feel my absolute best (together with substantial amounts of cake and chocolate pretty much on a daily basis because that’s my way of doing balance lol). I was brought up eating lots of veggies, so I’ve never had a problem of disliking them, and to this day eating big colourful bowls like this one makes me so happy! This bowl features butter beans cooked with turmeric and tamari, hassleback potatoes, mushrooms, peas, tomatoes, cucumber, spinach and avocado. Anyway, I’ve had a busy day today and will try to get an early night. Hope you’re all having a fantastic Wednesday! 🌿"
