Quinoa Tabbouleh

0

Quinoa is the supergrain of the future.๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿงก

Awareness is fast rising that we need to eat less factory farmed meatโ€ฆ

For the sake of our health, the environment and animal welfare.๐Ÿฎ

This means getting protein from other sources.๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

One day, this could involve eating more protein packed bugs (most likely in powdered form).๐Ÿ›

But until that day arrives, quinoa is one of the most protein rich foods around.๐ŸŒพ

What’s more, quinoa has almost DOUBLE the fiber of most other grains.

It’s also rich in iron, magnesium and Riboflavin.

So it’s arguably the most gut healing grain around, along with a powerful source of protein.

In my Quinoa Tabbouleh recipe, you’ll also find juicy tomatos, fresh cucumber, bell pepper and red onion…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿฅ’

Combined with finely chopped herbs and a drizzle with lemon juice.

So it’s a deliciously cooling dish, perfect for the hot days of summer.ย 
And quantifiably gut healing in many different ways.๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿงก

Matcha Energy Balls

Matcha has skyrocketed in popularity these last few years.

And not just the tea variety.๐Ÿต

You can now get matcha shots, lattes, and even desserts. ๐Ÿก

Matcha comes from tea leaves, but tea leaves prepared in an extra special way.๐Ÿƒ

To make matcha, the tea plants are covered 20-30 days before harvest. 

This reduces direct sunlight and allows the level of chlorophyll in the leaves to go up.

Why’s higher chlorophyll a good thing?

Because chlorophyll is high in amino acids and health enriching antioxidants. 

In fact, studies show that thanks to is high chlorophyll content… 

Matcha offers benefits for the liver… heart health… brain function… and even weight loss.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Garlic Zucchini & Tomato Pasta

0

Know what’s one of the BIGGEST causes of gut health issues these days?

Lack of FIBER.

Why?

Because too many of our staples have had the fiber stripped from them.

I’m talking about highly refined white bread… white pasta… and white rice…

All of them have had the fiber removed.

The result is they become basic carbs that turn straight into glucose… rocket your blood sugar… and if you can’t burn them off they turn into fat.

So you see, not ALL carbs are bad for you.

Just those that don’t come with any fiber.

Good news is you can still enjoy pasta, rice and bread of the unrefined brown variety

And my garlic zucchini and tomato pasta is a prime example.

It combines brown pasta with two medium zucchini, cherry tomatoes, smoked paprika and chilli flakes, with a drizzle of olive oil and dried parsley.

So it’s super gut healthy and it can give you a pasta powered energy boost that’s guilt free.
