  • ROAST CAULIFLOWER WITH CAJUN CHICKPEAS  Really quite stoked on
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition ROAST CAULIFLOWER WITH CAJUN CHICKPEAS : Really quite stoked on this meal... Roasted some cauliflower steaks in extra virgin olive oil and sea salt, and whilst they were in the oven I made the cajun chickpeas to go with. Whisked together coyo and hummus (keeping it  #plantbased ) and once they were all cooked, layered the base of the plate with the humm-yoghurt, then topped with the cauliflower, tomatoes, cajun chickpeas, herbs and some hemp seeds. Such a cracker of a meal!!! Plenty of plant based proteins. If you jump onto my insta-stories I'm showing you how to make the chickpeas

Remedies for winter health and beyond

It may take no convincing to ask you to eat a few more berries, they’re sweet, delicious little bursts of nutrition but ginger on the other hand can be a touch trickier. By contrast to the sweet delight that is the berry family, ginger is strong in flavour with a zing and kick. And, whilst we know berries are some of the richest known sources of antioxidants to protect our bodies from the effects of stress, illness and well, let’s face it life in general, our ginger nutrient factoids might be a little rusty. So let’s refresh those and while we’re at it look at a few ways you can up both the ginger and berry nutrition in your every day.

REMEDIES FOR HEALTH

Ginger has long been used not only as an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative spice(1) but as a traditional, natural remedy for health complaints such as nausea(2) and menstrual pain (3). Should these strike a chord for you, consider these simple remedies:

  • steep sliced fresh ginger in boiling water for ginger tea
  • slice ginger into chicken broth or fresh grated ginger cooked into chicken and vegetable soup
  • up the ante in a green juice with a kick of fresh ginger or ole faithful – beetroot carrot ginger celery combo

DRINKS

Sore throat or uncomfortable gut shying you away from weekend social activities? Consider sipping on these delicious drinks to soothe the throat, support digestion and deliver quality live cultures and organic acids to your gut for overall wellbeing too.

SNACKS AND TREATS

Ginger as a snack you say? Hell yay! Why not have a snack that promotes digestion (4), and fights stress and inflammation (5) rather than the sugar filled number that ultimately makes you feel worse than good? My personal favourites:

MEALS

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food right? Simple philosophy to live by, so consider each meal an opportunity to fuel your body for longevity! And, given ginger is rich in anti-bacterial, anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory nutrients go for gold with introducing it in your meals each day too. Try these tasty inclusions of course washed down with a Remedy Ginger booch variety – Ginger Lemon or Ginger Berry:

  • ginger vegetable stir fry with lentils/chicken/fish/beef and cauliflower rice
  • FODMAP friendly soup with carrot ginger herbs and crunchy seed snaps
  • Prawn laksa, with ginger, chilli, lemongrass and zucchini noodles in place of regular rice noodles to up the nutrient ante

ACCOMPANIMENTS

And last but not least, where ginger is so often used, not to mention one of the easiest ways to create both nutrition and flavour in your meals is with simple accompaniments and condiments for a meal AND to amplify your health… Consider these scrumptious numbers:

  • Pickled ginger and cucumber for asian meals and salads (I love these in a nourish / buddha bowl)
  • In a curry paste to spice up simple proteins or veggies
  • Grated into marinades with tamari, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil and miso
  • Combined with antioxidant rich berries and a touch of sweet for a GINGER BERRY JAM that will soon be your new breakfast fave.
