Cannellini Bean Curry
I love this curry its so simple to make but so delicious! You can mix the curry ingredients up a little bit to your liking but this is the basic recipe that I use for this recipe.
Coconut Oil (1-2tsp) use additional water if recipe is sticking
1-2 sticks of cinnamon
5 cardamon pods
3-4 sliced small onions
4 chopped garlic cloves
1-2tsp of chopped ginger
A mix of chopped vegetables like carrots, courgette, peppers etc.
1tsp of tumeric powder or freshly grated tumeric
4-5tsp of chilli powder
4tsp of ground cumin seeds
2 tsp of coriander seeds
4 Large tomatoes grated
Tin of carton of cannellini beans or other beans of choice
Additional chopped greens of choice
1-2tsp of Garam Masala
Salt & Pepper
Melt the coconut oil in a large pan, add in the cinnamon sticks and cook lightly for a minute or two. Add in the cardamon pods for a few minutes and then the onions, garlic cloves, chopped ginger and chopped vegetables. Add a small amount of water to the pan with the tumeric powder, chilli powder, ground cumin seeds, coriander seeds and grated tomatoes then simmer lightly for around ten minutes until the vegetables are tender.
Add in the beans and some additional greens like spinach or kale and simmer lightly for a few minutes, add the garam masala and season with salt and pepper.
I cook my bulghar wheat in my rice cooker on the white rice setting with a little vegetable stock and sometimes some extra greens. You can also cook it in a pan of water similar to how you would cook white rice.

I made a really simple organic beetroot juice this morning! It was divine! This was a great choice for me to drink before my Step Aerobics, I felt so strong and energetic after this powerful antioxidant packed juice!
(I did share this massive glass with the kids) 😉
1 whole pack of celery
2 large pieces of tumeric root
Chop all the pieces and put through the juicer, it sometimes helps to add the softer items with the hard. Drink immediately or store in a tightly sealed jar. Check out some of the awesome ingredients below.
Tumeric is a powerful ingredient and is thought to be a great anti inflammatory. You can purchase it in powder format but if your juicing it I would recommend getting the fresh root. I’ve included some links for the powder and the root format, you can use both in smoothies but I would personally recommend the fresh for juicing. You can also juice with a little pineapple to create an awesome tumeric shot! 😀

Beetroot is also thought to help the body in a variety of ways during exercise. I have included a link to a good blog post I have read for some further research you may wish to read. https://www.endurancesportsnutritionist.co.uk/blog/using-beetroot-juice-to-boost-endurance-sports-performance/

Green Smoothie Matcha Bowl
Approx calories: 335
I made an awesome green smoothie bowl this morning with several superfoods such as Green Matcha, Cacao Nibs and a sprinkle of Goji berries. These foods are positively awesome and I felt so much energy after eating this bowl of colourful foods this morning. I’ve provided some info at the bottom of this post about these superfoods and where you can purchase them.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, you can mix it up a bit with the greens and different plant milks etc. Any questions drop me a line 😀
2 Tbsp of Coconut Yoghurt
A handful of spinach leaves
1 Tsp of Matcha
Almond milk – just enough to create a soup like consistency
Cacao Nibs (Raw chocolate pieces)
Sliced fruit of choice
Blend all of the ingredients together adding the almond milk in slowly so you create a soup like texture. Sprinkle the Goji berries, Cacao Nibs and Chia seeds on the top and add some sliced fruit of choice. Enjoy!
Goji berries come in dried format in this part of the world and they are packed full of nutrients. You can actually also grow the plants yourself if your feeling adventurous. Check out the link below for further information:
You can buy Goji berries in most supermarkets, I personally buy this brand as it is organic and you tend to get more for your money if you buy in bulk! You can click on the image to order.

Chia seeds are fairly easy to come by these days in most supermarkets and I even purchased some from Lidl recently which is a discount supermarket. If you want to buy them in bulk I personally use this brand, they are of excellent quality.

Matcha powder is one of my favourite superfoods and is apparently one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. It is thought that 1 serving of matcha tea is equivalent to 10 cups of green tea.
This needs to be purchased in high quality for best results, I have personally bought this brand in the past and it is really high quality and I would recommend it.
This is a really high quality matcha and is very expensive for the size of the tin but you really do get what you pay for when it comes to matcha, and this goes for green tea also. This one is actually very reasonably priced for the size, I have paid much more for this brand before.
