Anti-inflammatory shredded apple + carrot chia/bircher pot

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

Pardon the long name! This sweet little dish is just too good on so many levels to not mention it all!

Reasons why it is awesome:

  • ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ingredients - the star (hidden) ingredient is TURMERIC... so many of my clients struggle to get this into their everyday and this is a delicious way to barely notice it, whilst consuming the fresh plant and it's host of disease-fighting benefits (note, turmeric is why we add the pinch of black pepper, to fully activate the benefits);
  • Fruit + veg - it's always good to include both of these in the first meal of the day, especially veggies, as we want to aim for as many servings as possible!
  • Packed with FIBRE... thanks to the fibre-loaded chia + apple, carrot as well as any additional seeds/fruit;
  • It's a chia pudding but also texturally like a bircher, so it's rich in omega-3 and a no-grain alternative that still has some healthy carbs from the apple/carrots.

*Note, try mixing it up i.e. swap the apple for pear or the carrots for beetroot.

Red Lentil Pasta with Mushrooms, Silverbeet & Bechamel Sauce

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

The main source of protein for this one is in the pasta! That's right, if you haven't gotten your hands on some legume-based pasta you are seriously missing out on an easy and delicious way to consume gut-loving beans/pulses. In fact, this whole meal is good for your gut rich in fibre, antioxidants, prebiotics and starch. The béchamel sauce is made creamy without dairy, but instead using pumpkin which is not just a filler ingredient, but rather offers its own nutritional benefits - vitamins A, C, E, potassium, and particularly good for eye and heart health. The coconut milk is a nice whole food source of fat that can help the body absorb some of these fat-soluble nutrients. Coupled with silverbeet, mushrooms, garlic, lemon, nutritional yeast and any other spices you desire - this is an extremely nutrient-dense meal that won't leave anybody hungry 😉
