Tomorrow's GHE organic salad will be inspired by this beautiful specimen - the good old red cabbage. You'll also find it in our organic veggie fridge surrounded by it's delicious friends.
Red cabbage’s red hue and bitter, peppery flavor signify that you’re getting two types of cancer-preventing substances. The red pigment comes from plant-based chemicals called flavonoids, while the sharp flavor is the result of sulfur-based compounds. In addition to these important phytochemicals, cabbage contributes to your overall health with fiber and a range of vitamins and minerals. Oh and it's flipp'n delicious and crunchy #anticancer#phytochemicals#organicfood#foodismedicine#guthealth#fibre#alkalise#realfood#naturespharmacy#gisborne
I've been finding it tricky to both #bulk and get all my veg in. Veg is bulky and fills you up so I tend to avoid it at meals choosing more calorie dense foods. So I've been making a #kale#spinach#leek and #broccolisoup spiced with cayenne pepper to glug down in between meals. I fry off the leeks in coconut oil and bung everything in with some veg stock let it simmer for about 10 mins then blitz. When I feel like a warm drink I pop a mug of it in the fridge. Is only about 70 cals a mug, but gets the #fibre and #iron in and nice alternative to #coffee . #bulkfood#bulking#soup#drink (oh and the mug is one of my designs on @redbubble )
Porridge. Good breakfast option. Contains beta glucans which have been shown to be helpful in cholesterol reduction as part of a healthy diet. Porridge can be taken with a variety of fruits for extra flavour or you can add cinnamon and apples.

"Choc Protein Balls" - Recipe
2/3 of a cup of dates (soak in water while preparing other ingredients)
1 ½ tablespoons of Cocoa powder (organic)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
Handful of almonds chopped into small pieces
2 tsp of LSA mix
4 tablespoons of shredded coconut
1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of coconut oil
Chop pre-soaked dates into little pieces; place all ingredients into a food processer and blend together; the mixture should be a bit gluggy and tough to blend but once mixed you will be able to form in to mediums sized firm balls. Once ingredients are mostly mixed (don’t be too worried about having it perfect) roll into balls with your hands – it gets a bit messy but is definitely worth it! If they are not completely firm when rolling don’t worry as in the fridge they will harden up. Once you have rolled into balls place into fridge; the coconut oil firms holding the balls together.
Makes approximately 6-8 balls
Great with morning tea or as an afternoon tea snack! They are delicious and give you that feeling of a sweet treat but are in fact full of goodness including protein which is necessary for our cell repair and function, energy production, hormonal regulation, growth, nutrient absorption and blood sugar control. So give this nutritious snack a go :) YUM!
