Ok so the colour looks a bit yuk! But this was a delicious morning sweet kick!  Fresh coconut meat with banana and spirulina for an extra nutritional boost!  😄  My fave nutritional supplement at the moment…just throw all the ingredients below into a blender and whizz up for breakfast or great for a post run energy boost!

one banana

coconut water from one young green coconut (these look white in the super market as the hard green bit has been chopped)

flesh from the inside of the coconut

1 tsp spirulina (1/2 if first time)

Strawberry & chia seeds smoothie

Strawberry smoothie with banana and chia seeds.  A quick smoothie I made this morning for the kids breakfast.

Chia seeds are tiny but are high in omega -3 fatty acids and are also a great dose of antioxidants, fibre, magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium.

Strawberries

Bananas

Almond milk

Chai seeds

Cut the tops off of a large handful of strawberries and add to blender, add one banana, and 2-4 tbsp of chia seeds.  Top up with half almond milk and half water, blend and serve.


Crispy tofu & stir fried garden veg

image

Stir fried broad beans, kale and onions from the garden with some sliced carrots and some crispy five spice tofu on the top….mmmm…I feel hungry again! 😀

Vegetables for stir frying

seasame oil

Garlic

soy sauce

agave or honey

Block of organic tofu

Rice

Cut the tofu in half and keep halfing until you get little squares.  Place in a roasting tray or dish and drizzle with sesame oil, some slices of garlic, a dash of soy sauce and sprinkle of five spice powder.

Pop in a really hot oven, I’ve found a high heat is good for crispy tofu when almost done add a squirt of agave or honey to sweeten.  Chop the vegetables and stir fry, keep them crisp, with garlic and a tsp of seasame oil and cook the rice to serve.  I added a pad Thai sauce with my vegetables at the end but you could serve with just soy.  Enjoy!

 


Cavolo Nero

Cavolo nero (black Tuscan kale) – I love it! 😍

This bad boy is packed full of goodness, here’s a wee link to the honestly healthy blog where they list the benefits of this beautiful vegetable.  I think it looks so pretty with the orange flowers in background.  I’m amazed I grew this at all, my previous attempts at growing vegetables have not been very fruitful.  I tend to juice this mostly with apples, it’s amazing! 😊
