Garlic Prawns with Charred Broccoli and Soba

Garlic Prawns with Charred Broccoli and Soba

Super easy but so delicious this recipe covers all the bases for a well balanced meal. Protein from the prawns, long lasting carbohydrates from the noodles (use buckwheat for gluten free), 3 different kinds of green vegetables, butter for healthy fats (buy a good organic kind or make your own), and some kim chi for fermented gut healing goodness. 

Broccoli, Kale and Coconut Soup

Broccoli, Kale and Coconut Soup

Soups are just so warming and nourishing in winter and this one is packed full of flavour! Broccoli and Kale are both vegetables with a highly superior nutritional value and I try to include these in my diet as much as possible. Broccoli is high in vitamin C, vitamin A and calcium plus has a cleansing effect on the liver. 

Millet, Chickpea and Broccoli Salad

Millet, Chickpea and Broccoli Salad

This salad is a fantastic example of how you can balance a vegetarian meal. Millet is a great gluten free alternative that is similar to cous cous when cooked and is rich in iron, phosphorus and B vitamins, not to mention it also has an impressive amino acid profile for a grain. In this recipe I have used turmeric in the cooking liquid which has phenomenal anti-inflammatory properties.
