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)

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!

Glowing Skin From Within

Hi All,

As the season is turning and summer is over, how do we keep that lovely glowing skin from summer ?
As the cold creeps in , so often does dry thirsty and flaky skin.
I thought i would write a blog to help you keep your glowing skin from within.

I am often asked about my skin and i feel the secret is to begin on the inside…with good food, good hydration and nutrition.

Skin is our largest organ and the key to dewy , youthful skin is NOT with expensive moisturisers (i use coconut oil on my skin, it doesn’t get any cheaper than this !1) however i drink 3 litres of mineral water each day. if you are not hydrated then it is going to show up on your skin. If you ever get dry skin anywhere on your body especially your feet and legs then you are dehydrated.
If you are not a fan of plain water then why not try adding organic fruit slices such as lemon, lime, orange or berry, or even herbs such as basil, mint, lemon balm or rosemary to add flavour. ALWAYS use mineral water at the very least as tap water is contaminated with oestrogen excess and flouride as well as many other harmful chemicals which will affect endocrine function.

The next key aspect is good nutrition, so ensure your diet is loaded with super-foods known to be have plentiful antioxidants! Antioxidants help our bodies to repair free radical damage. Here are some of my favourite :
~ Avocados – abundant in vitamin C,E, folates and good fat for heart health.
~ Cacao – The antioxidant power of flavonoids and essential minerals and vitamins found in cacao can support healthy heart functioning by lowering blood pressure, improving blood flow, lowering cholesterol, and reducing plaque buildup on artery walls.
~ All leafy green vegetables – Antioxidant, alkalising and oxygenises the body which is found to prevent cancers and inflammatory diseases.
~ Berries of all kinds – Another anti cancer , antioxidant source. Rich in vitamin C which is a powerhouse for cell rejuvination and amazing glowing skin.
~ Coconut oil – Medium Chain fatty acids which help you burn fat, amazing both internally and applied topically to give you youthful , wrinkle free skin and is good to the heart.
~Blue Green Algae / Liquid Chlorophyll / Wheatgrass – Abundant in antioxidants and alkalising properties.
~ Sprouted foods – this takes food to a whole new level. Sprouting seeds, beans and grains filled with enzymes and fibre which help the digestive tract to detoxify and are a great source of protein too.
~Chia Seeds – These tiny little seeds are jam packed full of nutrients and are one of the healthiest seeds on the planet. Protein , omega 3 , fibre and a rich source of magnesium.
~ Nut Butters – such as tahini , almond butter ( avoid peanut butters as peanuts are especially susceptible to a mold that produces a mycotoxin called aflatoxin).
~ Nuts and seeds (except peanuts)- rich in omega 3 , vitamin E , protein , good fats and many antioxidants they are best soaked in water before use to release nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances which can be eliminated by soaking. These inhibitors and toxic substances are enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens. Cashews only need 2 hours , however nuts like almonds will require 6 hours.

Anti cancer foods.

One of the best ways to cut your risk of developing cancer is by changing your diet.
Try to eat a minimum of 5 veggies a day and then some fruit on top of that. 

Curcumin / Turmeric
Turmeric, which is the main source of curry powder, contains curcumin – an active compound that is considered by many experts as a potential cancer fighter. Studies have shown this can be effective in reducing tumours .

Tomatoes
Linked to a reduction in the risk of several types of cancer, such as prostate cancer. Best small or squashed (including tomato sauce and tinned) lycopene will nourish your body and keep those disease-causing toxins away.

Mushrooms
Contain lectin that attacks cancerous cells and prevents them from multiplying. Add them to the BBQ.

Sweet Potatoes
Contain many essential compounds, including beta-carotene that has anti-cancer properties

Carrots
Also contains  beta carotene which is known for its anti-cancer properties.

Cruciferous Vegetables
Kale, Cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels  etc all  contain essential compounds that defend the body from free radicals that cause colon, breast, lung, and cervix cancer.

Green Tea
A large body of scientific studies suggests that tea may have a potential in beating cancers. Other types of tea, including black tea, are also rich in  antioxidant  compounds.

Grapes (this includes red wine….in moderation!)
Contain resveratrol which has strong antioxidant  properties to prevent cellular damage that triggers cancer.

Avocado
Contains antioxidant properties which attacks free radicals in the body by blocking the intestinal absorption of body fats.

Grapefruit / Orange and Lemons
In particular  these fruits can help fight cancer by removing carcinogens out and vitamin c encourages healthy cellular growth plus studies report that  compound in grapefruits may also prevent breast cancer cells from multiplying.

Garlic

Not only great for the heart and circulation it also contains immune-enhancing allium compounds that fight cancer-causing substances.
Mineral Water
Water is another detoxifying agent, washing away the toxins and unnecessary compounds out of your system. Drinking water more often also cuts your risk of bladder cancer whilst protecting the liver and kidneys.
