We like to prepare a lot of different foods and put them in the kitchen, sometimes I rest vegetables (raw or cooked) in vinegar or without dressing to pickle them, which can be offered as well.

Everyone can design their bowl according to their wishes. Parts can be warm, but generally only the rice/quinoa is warm. A lovely summer dish, our OMS circle enjoyed it very much!

(If you want to feed many people  that are not on the OMS lifestyle diet you might add a bit of roast chicken or feta  to the buffet, but many people like this vegan or pescetarian version)
