This delicious chicken soup is perfect for colder days to ward off colds and flu and to raise your immune system. Root vegetables contain lots of minerals and vitamins. Garlic helps to kill infections as it contains anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties as well as anti-inflammatory compounds. Garlic contains a very well-absorbed form of selenium and many other nutrients. Ginger helps break down the accumulation of toxins in the organs, particularly in the lungs and sinuses. It can help promote healthy sweating, which can assist detoxification during colds and flu. Ginger is also used for nausea and contains potent anti-inflammatory called gingerols which helps with some inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. Garlic and ginger give the soup a delicious flavour. This chicken soup is very healing and soothing for the digestive system. You can also swap the drumsticks for about six chicken chops.
Many curry recipes have a lot of ingredients and because of that, people are often put off by them. So we decided to simplify this recipe to make it quicker and easier to cook but still a delicious curry full of flavour. You can use any pumpkin for this recipe. We used organic jap pumpkin. Traditionally this curry is eaten with brown or basmati rice and bread but it’s bursting with flavour so you can eat this curry with other steamed vegetables or vegetable curries as well. This is a good way for you to increase your vegetable consumption. Make sure your curry powder is free from fillers and gluten-free if you are gluten or wheat intolerant. One which is made purely with spices is best.
This Cornbread is a delicious and healthy alternative to wheat bread. I love to serve it with butter or almond butter as a snack and it is also great for breakfast with savoury toppings like eggs. It’s easy to make and contains only wholesome, unprocessed ingredients.
These Delicious Turkey and Veggie Patties are moist, colourful, tasty and nutritious. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. They make a quick and healthy midweek dinner and are great for lunchboxes. You could also make these into balls. For kids, you might wish to use less cayenne pepper or omit it if it’s a bit too spicy but I find it to be fairly subtle. It’s worth the extra step of frying the onions and spices as this brings out the flavour. Turkey is a healthy source of protein needed to grow, repair and replace tissue in the body. Free-range turkey is best if you can find it. You could also use chicken mince in this recipe. The grated carrot adds moisture, colour and nutrients to the patties and helps increase your veggie intake for the day. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants which promote healing in the body.
These Almond and Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are crumbly, wholesome and delicious. The almond meal and coconut flour give a perfect cookie texture. Almond meal contains protein and nutrients that regular flour lacks. Made with gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and refined sugar-free ingredients, they’re easier to digest and a much healthier cookie than most. Almond butter contains healthy oils, protein and other nutrients making a healthy base for the chocolate filling. The chocolate filling is not overly sweet which I prefer but you can add more maple syrup to suit your taste. Hope you enjoy them!
