What We Will Cook:

Rachel will teach us how to make a delicious Lebanese tabouli that is plant-based, oil-free, and with hemp hearts.

Tabbouleh salad (aka tabouli) is probably the most popular Mediterranean salad that is becoming mainstream in American grocery stores all over the country and the world.

What does tabbouleh mean? It is a salad of Lebanese origin consisting chiefly of cracked wheat, tomatoes, parsley, mint, onions, lemon juice, and olive oil.

Tabbouleh is a traditional salad served in many Lebanese homes and probably eaten at least once a week. You will typically find finely chopped parsley, tomato, onion, mint, and bulgur in a tabbouleh salad. The salad is drizzled with a lemon-olive oil mix. It can be served as an appetizer or side salad throughout the year but mainly in the summer.

Why do you need tabbouleh in your diet? Tabbouleh is a favorite in the plant-based community because it is fresh, easy to make, and packed with healthy ingredients. Parsley is an anti-inflammatory that can reduce your risk of cancer and improve your immune system, while bulgur is a fibe- rich whole grain. The tomatoes and lemon juice provide a good amount of vitamins and minerals.

Rachel will teach us how to make a healthier version of tabbouleh without the oil and rather than using bulgur she will use hemp hearts. Tabbouleh is a great way to sneak healthy raw veggies into your diet.

About Rachel Detroit:

Rachel Haddad is a lifestyle coach. She is a certified personal trainer, plant -ased nutritionist, certified health coach, and the founder of Chronic Movement. Rachel initially lived a life following the standard American diet, plagued by addiction and an overwhelming amount of stress. By age 28 she would be diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Although this diagnosis was life-shattering, Rachel refused to accept the reality that this disease would take over her life and that she would follow a conventional treatment plan.

She spent countless hours researching the lifestyle for optimal health to manage this disease. She discovered that the whole food plant-based diet was the best diet to help calm her body down. Soon she would incorporate spokes of lifestyle medicine such as daily movement, sleep hygiene, social connection, and meditation to support her overall health. Her recovery has been miraculous.

She soon began her business called Chronic Movement to encourage individuals to join the movement, follow their dreams, and reclaim their health. You can learn more about Rachel Haddad by following her on Facebook, Instagram, and youtube. You can also find more information on her website.
