The benefits of saffron as an antidepressant are well-documented. According to research saffron may also help prevent snacking by curbing your appetite.
This beautiful salad is simple to make, super delicious & nutritious. Make a big batch as it keeps in the fridge for a few days.
You can change up the veggies to whatever you have in the fridge, ie. broccoli, cauliflower, celery, zucchini spirals...
NOTE: I used a raw beet in the salad pictured here - that's why it's pink!
One of the best ways of staying healthy is to look after the good bacteria in your gut by eating fermented foods. Like most fermented foods from alcohol to sauerkraut, tempeh is an acquired taste. Give it a try! - Serve this recipe alongside your favourite saucy asian vegetable dish.
This recipe can be enjoyed any time of day, for breakfast, as a snack or even a dessert. The apples, oatmeal help to feed the gut microbiota while the kefir builds it. It also has loads of good fat and protein to keep you satiated and your blood sugar stable. The sweeteners are filled with health promoting properties - so this is a great choice if you're like me and have a 'sweet tooth'...
Chicken liver is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Great source of iron and certain B Vitamins including Vitamin B12. Making it a great choice for boosting energy. It's also a good source of Vitamin A which helps with wound healing and eye health. It also contains CoQ10 a powerful antioxidant.
Bone broth can be frozen and used later instead of water to make grains, soups and stews. Keeps in the freezer for up to 6 months.
I like to cook the broth all day for one day then place in a cool spot (garage/bucket of ice/refrigerator) over night then cook it for another day.
Bring these along to a BBQ and wow your friends and family with this healthy and delicious take on an ol' favourite!
