BBQ to Nourish you…

 

 

Plant based BBQ

 

Hello Gorgeous People!

As promised, here is part 2 of my nourishing BBQ recipes… I hope you enjoy them!

Vegan & Gluten Free Bad-Ass BBQ Burger

1. Simply gently roast 4 big flat mushrooms (no-oil), 1 chopped red pepper and 2 slices sweet potatoes (using the ends to make chip shapes) in a little coconut oil, gently turning every 10-15 minutes.

2. Then chop radish, carrots, red cabbage & courgette to make an easy clean salad base (today I used my mandolin to chop)

3. Blend the ingredients from my vegan coleslaw recipe in the book ‘Nourish with Aimie’ a mixture of Macadamia nuts, raw apple cider vinegar, raw honey or coconut nectar if you don’t use honey and a little water and coat the salad.

4. Using some left over quinoa from the day before, gently add in some BBQ spices

5. Chop 1 red onion and gently soften in a little coconut oil on a low heat until soft

6. Once it’s all cooked, simply stack 1 mushroom on the bottom, add a little quinoa and mustard, a slice of sweet potato, more quinoa and mustard and red pepper, more sweet potato and then red onion, topped off with your topper, the second mushroom

7. Add salad and sweet fries and enjoy!

Turmeric…let’s give it a go…

Happy Monday lovely people!!!

So…you’ve all heard the hype, you need Turmeric, it’s anti inflammatory, countries that use Turmeric have a much lower rate of disease, it’s a super food right… but how to use it?

Turmeric

Well, I just need to tell you this and then we will get onto the yummy nourishing stuff… sugar, the white stuff in biscuits, cakes, ketchup, Pringles, jarred tomato sauces, microwave meals, breads and so many more things cause chronic inflammation, so to reduce inflammation firstly cut out these refined sugars, eat fresh home made foods, as local, seasonal and organic as you can, or grow them yourselves and try adding in some Turmeric.

While I’m on the subject, fruit is not the same as white sugar, fruit is packed full of nutrients, minerals, fibre, fluids that hydrate and nourish your cells. If you are eating whole fresh fruit, that’s fantastic!!

You can get Turmeric in two ways, dried and in a ground powder or fresh in it’s root form, I love the root form! So, I’m going to share with you many ways to add Turmeric into your food….

So here is the first way I started using Turmeric, in a juice

The Orange Healer

-1 kg of organic carrots
-1 Turmeric root
-1 small chunk of ginger
-1 lemon
-1 lime
-1 orange

turmeric juice

pop all ingredients through the juicer and enjoy!

So I hope you enjoy this juice and keep nourishing that gorgeous body of yours!

Happy Monday all!xx
