Everyone loves tacos as they are an easy and fun way to feed family or friends. You can pretty much prepare all of the components ahead of time (fishcake mixture uncooked), the savoury yoghurt (probiotic) and the onion, chilli and mango salsa (prebiotic). They are light and great for your gut!
SLUGGISH BOWEL OR CONSTIPATION?
Increasing plants in your diet during the day can help ‘get you moving’ and relieve the bloating that so often comes along with constipation.
These Baked Pumpkin and Chickpea Felafel are so delicious, you wouldn’t even know that they are loaded with plants!
Orange veggies are loaded with beta-carotene which our body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A can help protect our body against disease by strengthening our immunity and mucous membranes.
PREBIOTIC EGGPLANT & CHICKPEA CURRY
This vegan curry is so light that it can be enjoyed even on a balmy summer evening.
It's loaded with prebiotic fibres and resistant starch rich foods to feed healthy gut microbes, and topped with fresh summer greens and mini-roma tomatoes for a vitamin C boost to break down phytates in the grains and legumes.
As much as I love tortilla soup, the toppings are my favourite part. Avocado, black beans, coriander, lime, crispy tortilla strips, the options are endless.
Cauliflower are in abundance in Autumn and Winter in Australia. The name comes from the Latin word ‘caulis’ (cabbage) and flower. They come from the Brassica family of vegetables, known for their disease-fighting properties.
This salad is simple and delicious. Adding olive oil (a monounsaturated fat) to your salad can help lower your blood cholesterol.
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.
This vibrant baby beet salad is rich in colourful vegetables, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Perfect for any time of the year, it is tossed with seasonal herbs and is begging for your personal touch, whether it be walnuts, watercress or white wine vinegar. A crumbling of Greek or goat’s feta adds protein to the dish, which will make it satisfying enough on its own as a small meal. Wrapping the beets in foil to bake in the oven gives them a sweet flavour not experienced with boiling. A sprinkling of lightly roasted walnuts add extra good fats for brain function and before you know it, this salad will become a year-round staple in your household.
