Muffins? Weight loss? I know what you are thinking ...how does those two words even go together? I thought the same until I made these juice pulp muffins. But with the wonderful health benefits of Grapefruit (weight loss, anti-cellulite, liver detoxifier and high in vitamin C), mixed with Tumeric (super food, anti-flammatory, adaptogen) plus all the additional fibre and fats. This is a winner.
Due to an excess of Grapefruits in our household we have been juicing them with some Tumeric, Ginger and Lemon to make a strong juice concentrate to keep in the fridge. Each morning we add a TBS to add to warm water to drink first thing in the morning and boy does the body love that!
Being one to not to waste anything - I decided to try my hand at turning the pulp into muffins. Mmm Mmm Mmmm.
Brace yourself though! Think Tart and Tangy and perfect with a dollop of your favourite yogurt.
This is a great snack for movie night or school lunch boxes. The chickpeas contain both protein and carbohydrate so will help with brain function and keep you full.
This dip is delicious and counts towards your vegetable quota for the day. Whats not to love about that?!
At a recent health expo I discovered Banana flour which is a Gluten free flour made from Green bananas. It is quickly becoming a new favourite in my household because it is high in resistant starch providing benefits for the good bacteria in our gut, helping to lower blood glucose levels and improve insulin sensitivity. It has a really mild flavour so works in lots of recipes unlike the wonderful but very full flavoured Coconut flour.
This recipe is super easy to make with only a few ingredients.
Gelatin has wonderful healing properties and is a natural source of amino acids which aid in hair, skin and bone health. It can also aid in reducing inflammation in the gut and assist in reducing food sensitivities, promote healthy immune function and recovery after exercise.
I love that this recipes contains the antioxidant properties of blueberries in conjunction with the gelatin, plus it tastes yummy.
I love eggs for breakfast. Not just because they taste yummy but also because they are a complete protein, meaning it supplies all of the amino acids to the body first thing in the morning. By ensuring your breakfast has a good amount of protein in it - we can really support our health and wellbeing in many ways.
This breakfast is full of fibre and protein and is so nice and warming during winter.
Its also a great choice if you want something healthy, gluten free and if you are short of time!
It only takes about 3 minutes to make.
This Acai and Chia bowl recipe is the same recipe I have posted previously. Each time i am just switching the fruit. This means I can make a weeks worth of chia pudding and then each morning just change up the fruit. I love the variety and fun of different colours every morning. Am sure your kids will too!
This is the same chia pudding recipe i have posted previously except I have switched the fruit for a small mango. Its SO GOOD. Give it a try 😋
