A few months ago, our group met in Austin for our first annual editorial meeting. It was a book weekend. Camille’s home was a no-brainer: We had a nice chat, drank sparkling wine, got together for a hearty meal, and learned how to make a delicious cup of green tea. We opened our yoga mats and looked at the city of Austin. Best of all, we left our computers unlocked. Living together, face to face, was the breath we all needed.
From Los Angeles to New York (and most of the cities in the center), our strong team found solace in slowing down. We enjoyed being together. We laughed and cried. And even though we are different, we are still the same. It was obvious: Our love of writing, virtue, and having good people are what united us. That, is our mutual love of food. So, you can imagine when we met at The Well because of the vegan chorizos taco group “oohs” and “aahs” that came down. Yes, we had to ask them for a secret.
Here’s why wells are one of our favorite Australian restaurants in Austin
Needless to say, brunch at The Well was one of the best of the week. Austin’s well-known place is well received by all health-conscious and skeptical. If you have a chance to go, this is your gentle pull. Although a gluten-free, soy-free, and sugar-free menu, the food is surprisingly satisfying — it feeds from the inside. So is their drink. With an emphasis on low sugar, healthy fats, and pure fats, it is clear that The Well favors good health. Eating is nothing short of a spiritual experience.
From Sunrise Yoga to Housemade Smoothies
As a group, we started the day with an outdoor yoga / pilates class. We walked and stretched as the sun rose over the tree. With a hungry stomach, we went to the Fountain — one of their sweet foods working there to greet us. While we were drinking “Revive” (a powerful blend of fresh açai, fruit, bananas, almond butter, seeds, wheat-free granola, Ceylon cinnamon, and organic peanut milk in the house!) We met their chef, Jon Oh. He also described The Well’s Dietary Wisdom and is not surprising, it just uses fresh ingredients, informally available, nutritious recipes, and fresh foods. Whether you’re vegetarian, paleo, keto, or Whole30, there’s your seat at the table. With breakfast in mind, it was time to learn about Austin Breakfast: Breakfast tacos.
Cassava Flour Tortillas sauce
The Well’s take on classic breakfast tacos are both slightly higher and a bit edgier. However, they did arrive. With smoothies in hand, we saw Jon throw together simple ingredients to make their cassava products. Unlike their corn stalks, these tortillas are made from nutritious olive oil and cassava flour, which are rich in carbohydrates and antioxidants. Cassava flour is also good for stress. If you are new to cassava flour, you can use it instead of white or wheat flour. It tastes a little nutty and groundy.
Vegan Lentil Chorizo
With the vegan and gluten-free tortillas going on, Jon continued to fill up. Their typical morning taco comes with crushed eggs, pears, radish lime, salsa, and much more. You can also add homemade pork, mushrooms, squash, or toppings with “chorizo” stew. We have the last one. When Jon began to eat beans, apple cider vinegar flour, cayenne pepper, herbs, and so on, his aroma was delicious. We did not wait for digging. Unlike many soy chorizos, The Well takes a different approach. Instead of soy, peas and lentils provide protein, fiber, and other essential nutrients (hello, folate and iron!). Plus, they add the meat texture to the vegan dish completely. Your blood sugar will thank you again.
Finally, Jon passed us by in their well-known chorizo oil. Made from fresh garlic, cumin seeds, paprika, turmeric, jalapeno, and olive oil, this oil is a liquid gold. They use this oil to add flavor to anything. It goes well with cooked fish, meat, poultry, and fried vegetables. In their morning tacos, it increases the amount of umami. The oil is proof that a delicious meal should not be difficult.
Advantages Of Making Tacos From scratch
While making homemade tortilla may seem daunting, it is not as difficult as you think. Especially when choosing cassava flour tortillas. It is made from five simple materials and one plate. Unlike most tortillas in the store, these are anti-inflammatory. Skip the big, bulky tortillas and choose this instead. Your body and mind will appreciate you. A healthy car of all kinds of tortillas, made at home and very versatile. Tacos are able to provide good protein, healthy fats, nutrients, and fiber. Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
