Low Chemical Hummus

Most people, even those with the 'windiest tummies' can tolerate a small amount of legumes. We recommend starting with a teaspoon of hummus if you are unsure and gradually increasing the amount to establish your threshold level.  Dried legumes should be soaked for at least 18 hours to remove most of their poorly absorbed sugars which are responsible for producing gas. Don't forget to discard the soaking water and use fresh water for cooking.

Asian Inspired Wild Rice Salad with Lime and Ginger Infused Salmon

Asian Inspired Wild Rice Salad with Lime and Ginger Infused Salmon

We often refer to this as our ‘anti-ageing salad’ as it is jam packed with good oils, vitamins & minerals, antioxidants and low GI grains. We have combined flavoursome herbs and fresh seasonal produce with a splash of salt-reduced Asian sauces to provide a taste experience that you will want to revisit again and again. Topped with a lovely fresh fillet of salmon, the fish oil helps to reduce excessive inflammation in the body and may be useful in protecting our heart & joints, improving brain function and reducing our risk of some cancers. Leaf herbs such as coriander and cruciferous vegetables like broccolini were added as rich sources of antioxidants. Ginger has been traditionally used to stimulate appetite and soothe the digestive system and avocado provides a bonus dose of folate. Lime is loaded with Vitamin C and tops off this simple to prepare lunch or dinner salad. We hope you enjoy it.
