Lentil Curry Loaf

Lentil Curry Loaf

This lentil curry loaf recipe was given to me by a dear friend…..OMG it is amazing!!!!
Lentils are a great source of protein, fibre , iron and i added chilli flakes, turmeric , garlic and a little coconut oil to make super anti cancer , antioxidant healthy meal.

This lentil curry loaf is great for lunch or dinner but can be parcelled up and packed into a lunchbox or frozen if you are making for one.

INGREDIENTS
1 tin lentils
2 tablespoons coconut oil
3 large free range eggs
250grams wild rice (or tilda straight from the packet rice if you are feeling lazy…try coconut basmati)
1 garlic clove pressed
1 tablespoon turmeric
1 tablespoon chilli powder (adjust according to your taste)
1 tablespoon curry powder (adjust to your taste)
Good pinch of himalayan sea salt and ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS
Preheat your oven to approx 200c
Mix it all together ensuring the eggs are well blended into the mix as this is the “binder” that sticks it all together.
Pop into a silicone cace mould or tin and cook for approx 40 mins.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!
ps – i love this with a big side of sautéed greens (try kale, broccoli and baby spinach sautéed with garlic and a generous spoon or 2 of coconut oil)

Wheat Free Coconut Bread

I do love bread, but i do not enjoy the bloated sluggish feeling i get when i eat it so i decided to have a go at making some wheat free bread. I had some coconut flour to hand and i love the subtle flavour it gives to recipes. I loved both making and eating this wheat free coconut bread..i hope you enjoy it too….

INGREDIENTS
6 large free range eggs
1/2 cup of coconut oil
2 tablespoons raw (unpasturised) honey
3/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt

DIRECTIONS
Beat all the eggs together in a large mixing bowl.
Sieve in the coconut flour and baking powder.
Melt coconut oil (just sit the cup on top of a radiator or place the cup into a bowl of hot water and it will soon melt) then add to the above mixture . Add the salt too.
Whisk it all up until there are no lumpy bits.
pour into a bread mould and cook at about 180c for approx 40 mins (use a skewer to check the bread is cooked through).

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!
ps – I love it with cheese melted on top but add your own topping to suit.

Homemade Raw Naked Bars

I love naked bars, they have no added nasties in them and just simple natural ingredients. So i thought , lets have a go at making some homemade raw naked bars.
These homemade raw naked bars are vegan with no butters, eggs etc added so everyone can enjoy!
They took me less than 10 mins to make , and if you prefer rather than making raw naked bars you could roll into balls and make raw naked bombs instead!!
They are delicious!
My photography skills are lacking as you may notice from my other recipes too….hey ho…keeping it real!

INGREDIENTS
2 Cups Cashew Nuts (soak for 1-2 hours before hand and then rinse through)
2 Cups Mejool Dates (rinse through)
1 tablespoon unpasturised honey
1 teaspoon madagascan vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
I added 4 drops of wild orange oil but you can add anything else you prefer
Mix it up and try pumpkin seeds, cranberries, raisins, coconut flakes or different nuts (the important thing is to keep the ratio of dried fruit and nuts as 1:1)

DIRECTIONS
Whack it all into a processor or blender and blitz to your desired consistency.Line a dish with cling film and spread and firm it to the base.
Leave to set for about an hour in the fridge or freeze then cut into strips. They will keep in the fridge for about 5 days or keep frozen and take out as you want to eat.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!

Castor Oil Packs for Detoxing

CASTOR  OIL  PACKS  FOR DETOXING

WHAT  IS  A  CASTOR  OIL  PACK?

A   castor   oil   pack  for detoxing  is   an   external   application   of   castor   oil.   A   piece   of  (ideally organic material) flannel   is   saturated  in  castor  oil  and  applied  to  the  liver, intestines or womb (please discuss with a qualified therapist before performing womb packs)  with  a  hot  water  bottle  or  heat   pack.

Castor   oil   packs for detoxing aim to  improve   assimilations,   eliminations,   circulation   (especially   of   the   lymphatic   system)   and   breaking   down   scar  tissue.

To  Make  the  Pack:
Use  an organic material if possible flannel,  big  enough  to  cover  your  abdominal  area.
Put   it   in   a   pan   or   bowl   and   pour   castor   oil   on   it.
Saturate   the   whole   flannel,   and   leave   it   until   it   is   well saturated.
When   you   use   it,   you   want   it   saturated,   but   not   dripping.
After  each  use,  you  will  probably  need  to  add  a  little  more  castor  oil.
You  can  use  the   flannel   many   times.   When   you’re   not   using   it,   you   can   store   it   in   a   plastic   bag   in   the   refrigerator  or  cool  place.

Instructions for Pack Use :
Use  the  pack  in  the  evening,  as  you  are  resting  before  bed  or  when  you  have   quiet  time.
Spread  out  a  large  plastic  bag  on  the  bed  with  an  old  towel  on  top  so  that  the   castor   oil   won’t   leak   onto   the   bed.
Fold   a   towel   (that   you   will   use   only   for   castor  oil  packs,  because  the  oil  is  almost  impossible  to  wash  out  completely).
Warm  the  heat  pack/hot  water  bottle.
Lie  down  on  your  back  on  the  towel.
Place  the  pack  on  your  Liver, Intestines or Womb,  with  the   heating   pad   on   top   and   the   towel   on   top   of   that. It   should   be   very   warm,   but   not  so  hot  it  burns  you.
Ideally,   keep   the   pack   on   for   1   to   1   1⁄2   hours.   Although   anything   from   20   minutes  onwards  is  beneficial. Have  a  paper  towel  handy  to  wipe  the  oil  off  yourself  when  you  get  up.
You  can  perform  3  times  a  week   for optimum results.

Reset your hormones for weight loss

Do you wonder why you are struggling to loose excess weight and shift stubborn abdominal fat. Studies have shown us that hormones hold the key to weight loss. Ghrelin and leptin in particular are hormones that hold the key to your appetite and weight loss. They signal hunger and  fullness. If these hormones are out of balance, your ability to lose weight is nearly impossible because it is very difficult to fight a strong urge to eat….so stop beating yourself up about it and take control of resetting your hormonal switches.

Ghrelin is the hormone responsible for making us hungry when it is high if we can lower it we can reduce hunger pangs and  cravings.

Leptin is the hormone that signals your body that you’ve had enough to eat and helps in optimizing weight loss.

Some of the key factors in resetting your endocrine function for weight loss include these tips :

  •   Multiple small, more frequent meals throughout the day ( i.e. six with 3 of these being small meals and 3 being snacks to key blood sugar balanced).
  •   Introduce omega-3 fatty acids into your diet (from oily fish such as salmon and sardines, nuts, flax seeds, omega rich eggs and seeds).
  •   Moderate-to-low omega-6 fatty acids (such as in sunflower oil and vegetable oil).
  •   High omega-9 fatty acids (i.e. in extra-virgin olive oil, eggs)
  •   Lower simple sugars (such as refined sugar and foods with high sugar content and simple carbs such as bread, pasta, cereals etc).
  •   Higher protein levels in meals
  •   Higher dietary fiber (aim for 25g per day).
  •   Low processed foods (anything with a long list of ingredients, try to eat a clean unprocessed diet and reduce processed meats).
  •   No artificial sweeteners (any fat free diet foods and diet drinks , sweet and low, splenda etc all filled with nasty toxic aspartame which the body does not register as false sugar so it increases our craving and need for sugar which is the BIGGEST contributor to fatty tummy…say NO to zero!).
  •   Increase physical activity, even just a small amount each day to get the heart pumping and the body working smarter
  •   Reduce stress as this is a massive contributor to endocrine malfunction.
