The little black dress looked stunning as you left for the party and four hours later you cant wait to get into your PJ’s and set your belly free!

Yet the following morning you will be paying the price for that extra mince pie, two bottles of pink fizz and whatever else grabbed your attention…..

So you need to prepare in advance, you need to boost your happy gut bacteria so they are working at optimum levels before you indulge.

Sweet Potato Turmeric Muffins

 

Sweet Potato Turmeric Muffins
(Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free, Protein-Packed)

Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup mashed sweet potato (to make sweet potato mash, just roast one sweet potato, skin on, in 375 degree oven for an hour, or until squishy to touch. Let cool and scoop out the orange flesh)
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • ½ cup of choice (raw or roasted works fine, but unsalted is a MUST)
  • 3 pastured eggs
  • 2 tablespoon
  • 1 tablespoon melted
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon
  • 1 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp
  • ⅓ cup
  • 1/3 cup
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a muffin pan (I used a mini one, because I like the texture slightly better and it’s more fun to snack on, but you do you).
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together all wet ingredients until very smooth.
  3. In another mixing bowl, stir together all dry ingredients until well combined.
  4. Add dry ingredients into wet, mixing until no clumps remain.
  5. Spoon into muffin tin of choice. These won’t rise a ton, so really mound the batter on to get that gorgeous muffin top. Sprinkle with black pepper.
  6. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes for mini muffins or 30 – 45 minutes for larger ones, or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  7. Store in an airtight container or in the fridge.
  8. Makes 30 mini muffins.

 

 

Antioxidant Energising Smoothie

Antioxidant Energising Smoothie

So what are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are a substance that protect your cells from damage. Damage may be caused from pollution, chemicals, processed foods, alcohol and drugs. The effect is called ‘oxidation’ a reaction between oxygen and other molecules.

Your body naturally creates free radicals (toxins) when cells use oxygen. Research shows toxins can be linked to disease including heart disease.

Antioxidants support your cells to repair from oxidative damage. They are found in many foods such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and whole grains.

Ideally use organic where possible as this reduces the level of chemicals you will be ingesting.

This recipe is from Healthy Smoothie Headquarters and one I personally use and recommend to my clients. Quick and easy to prepare and packed full of antioxidants and energy.

Turkish Apple Tea, Gluten Free Ginger Biscuits and Oatly Chocolate Drink

My cupboards are very rarely bare, though three things I ensure are well stocked are my sweet tasting Turkish Apple Tea, Ginger Biscuits that are dipped in chocolate and Oatly chocolate drink (My daughters favourite)

To order simply click on the link to the righthand side of the image and you will be taken directly to the order page.

I adore this Turkish Apple Tea. An instant granulated fruit drink from Turkey that can be drunk hot or cold. It’s a traditional Turkish drink that can be a winter warmer or a cool, refreshing drink in summer. To be transported to the tea gardens of Turkey, simply place two teaspoons of the apple tea mixture into cold or boiling water, stir and add sugar to taste.

My daughter loves this Oatly Chocolate drink. A brilliant, chocolatey alternative to milk or soya milk, and made from pure oats, Oatly Chocolate Oat Drink is a nutritious, dairy-free way to experience that childhood favourite. Full of natural fibre and protein, this drink is also enriched with added vitamins and calcium. It tastes great over cereal too.
