Sunflower Mince Chilli

I loved this chili recipe made with the Sunflower Mince by ‘Just Whole Foods’ it was super delicious!  You can serve it up with a little cheese, rice and a side salad for a healthy meat free family meal.

To make the recipe you will need the following –

Ingredients

1 Packet of Just Whole Foods sunflower mince

Coconut oil

1 large onion chopped

1 red pepper chopped (optional)

4-5 cloves of garlic chopped

1 chilli seeds removed and chopped

1 tin of chopped tomatoes

1 tin of kidney beans

2 tbsp of tomato puree

2 tsp of ground cumin

2 tsp of paprika

1 tsp of chilli powder

3 tsp of dried chopped coriander

Cheese or dairy free cheese grated for the topping (optional)

Re hydrate the mince as per the packet instructions.  Add a little coconut oil to a large pan and fry the onion and red pepper (if using) on a medium heat for five minutes.  Add in the garlic and chilli and cook for a further 3-5 minutes.  Add in the re hydrated mince and cook lightly for 5 minutes.  Add in the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, ground cumin, paprika, chilli powder, dried coriander and season with salt and pepper.  You can add more dried chilli if you like it spicy! Cook on a low heat for 20 minutes until all the spices have infused well.

You can serve up at this point with some rice and side salad but if using cheese or dairy free cheese, pour the chilli into a suitable oven container and top with the grated cheese, bake in the oven for 15-20mins on a medium heat until all the cheese is melted.

Serve and enjoy!

Speed Cleaning 15 Minutes

These fifteen minute power cleans are saving my house at the moment!  Check out this video for my fifteen minute clean on the kitchen clutter worktop!

Set your timers and go!!!

You might be wondering why I’m talking about cleaning when my passion is health and wellness, but looking at my health holistically and all that has an impact on it, I have to take my housework into consideration.

15 minutes!!!.jpg

My housework causes me anxiety, stress and makes me feel like a failure if its not done!  I struggle for time though…I really struggle for time!  I am a busy mum of three messy little people and they need so much of my time and so much cleaning up after (which I don’t mind of course because I love them to pieces).

I can however spare fifteen minutes, knowing that in fifteen minutes I can get surprisingly a lot done!

  1. Pick the worst area of your home!  (yeah I mean it, go for it!)
  2. Set the timer to 15minutes!
  3. Ready Set, Clean!
  4. Clean likes there’s no tomorrow!  Solid cleaning for fifteen minutes! 
  5. Stop when the timer stops and leave the rest for the next session

You’ll be surprised how much you can get done in fifteen minutes, I know I was!  I was surprised!  If you don’t get a whole area clean, that’s fine just work on it next time you have a 15 minute block free!

I hope this helps to reduce your stress and anxiety around cleaning and remember if you are reading this or watching this then you are taking steps towards a better, cleaner house so give yourself a wee hug for that!  Your doing a great job!

Whipped Shea Butter Cream

sheacream

Organic Whipped Shea Butter and Almond Oil Recipe

This luxurious hand and body cream is amazing for the winter months.  The entire recipe consists of only two ingredients and its really easy to make.  It is particularly good for dry chapped hands, dry skin on your face and for any eczema or psoriasis you may have.

You will need:

A food processor

Storage Jar or Tin

Piping bag

Organic Cold Pressed Almond Oil (3-4tbsp)

Organic Shea Butter (1 1/2 cups)

I put about a cup and a half of shea butter into the food processor and blend on low power until smooth. 

Keep the machine running and add the almond oil into the shea a tbsp at a time, this will fluff up into a thick cream.  Add more almond oil if nessecary until you get the consistency you are after.  Keep checking, it literally takes a few seconds of blending to fluff up.

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe into your suitable container.  This will keep for a long time!  I would say about 6 months to a year.  Check it before use if its been a while. 

The cream is brilliant when used overnight after a nice relaxing hot bath.  I apply the cream to my hands throughout the day during the winter months to prevent cracking and dry skin.  I also add my own essential oil blends but please do your own research when it comes to essential oil use.  I add the oils after the initial shea blend and additional oils and butters can be added to the cream too.

It is important to use Organic Ingredients where affordable as they are so much kinder to your skin, the environment and the producers of such ingredients.  Also look out for Fair trade options for your ingredients as this will ensure you are putting your money towards good causes, small farms, cooperative groups etc. and helps to support those who need it the most.

I hope you enjoyed the video below and I would love to hear of your experiences with this cream, please drop me a comment or two.

Peace, love and blessings to you!

(!!!You should always test new products on your skin before use and list ingredients/check allergies before giving as a present!!!)
