Reviews on Vegan and ethical products, recipes and travel
On a rainy day, take some time to relax and enjoy some time to yourself. Why not try meditation to calm anxiety and improve well being. I love this mediation I have linked too, it really takes you away from the day to day grind. Sit in a comfy chair, eyes closed and relax. http://dharmaseed.org/teacher/85/talk/37775/ Love to know how you get on!!
Easy oven roasted quinoa quinoa is tricky to cook well without it being dry and tasteless. We use an easy 40 minute roasting method that until now hasn’t failed me. All you need is - 300g whole grain quinoa - 900ml water - 2 tbsp of ras el hanout spice mix ( get at most shops) - Tin foil Cover the quinoa with the water in a dish and add the spices and cover with foil. Oven for 40 minutes at 220 degrees Once done give it a fork to fluff it up. Lasts a few days in the fridge. Would love to hear your comments on this!!!
Protein pancakes Perfect for a Saturday morning late breakfast enjoy, very easy to make. 1 scoop of protein powder 30g organic oats 20 ml almond milk tsp of agave syrup Blitz the oats to make a flour, then add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. leave out some milk if it's too runny. Fry until golden brown and enjoy with some fruit and dairy free yogurt. I often have this before heading to the gym!
Hey, thought I would share a few of my favorite products that I use to strengthen and help reduce gut inflammation. Mainly focused on increasing health gut bacteria, increasing fiber and reducing lactose.Lactose free- Alpro Almond Yogurt- I find this in most big supermarkets and has higher protein count than the natural version and includes healthy gut bacteria. Almond Milk- I find this tastier than Soya milk and the un-sweetend version doesn't have any nasty sugar or sweeteners added in.Whole Earth Almond Butter- Again almond keeps popping up but the main reason is that it's high in calcium and can rival any cows milk on the amount contained. Also the Waitrose avacado butter is cheap and tastes pretty good. Coconut cream- this one is my personal favorite as I started using cream in my coffee to reduce the amount of lactose in comparison to milk so this has a similar consistency. Bit like Marmite this one try and see. Fiber Boosting- Organic Cocoa Powder- I buy this and the next from bulk powders I find they are the cheapest and really good quality. Very high in fiber but also in protein, add to water or a shake, plus really tasty too. Also can now get it at Aldi. Baboa Powder- Originates from Ethiopia, and is a tree seed ground down, not the best tasting but very high in fiber and once in a shake can't taste it. Rice or pea Protein- I personally buy a 1kg pouch of Vegan protein from revolution foods and has a good amino acid chain and is not whey protein so no lactose. Which for me was the reason for a lot of my gut issues. We have a discount code on our member area check it out. All of these are my personal favorites give them a go and see what you think, try alternatives if you want a balanced opinion and always shop around there are different pricing at each supermarkets. Love to get some feedback on some of these products!!
Very excited to share with you this recipe for Tofu scramble. I have been trialing it as a new breakfast as a way to boost protein and steer away from a high carb breakfast due to starting a fat loss phase of my training. Not only does this taste great it has over 15g of protein in it, from the tofu alone. So far it has kept me full, energy levels are balanced and requires no effort in the morning as I have prepped it in the evening. Here it is; 1 block of organic tofu 1 onion chopped 1 tsp of turmeric 1/2 tsp of chilli flakes or to taste pinch of salt and pepper 3 glugs of unrefined olive oil Sooooo easy In a pan add the oil and onion and simmer until soft. Then crumble the tofu up into small pieces (kinda looks like egg) and add to the pan. Chuck in the spices and boom. Fry on a medium heat for 7 minutes and you' re done. I have been adding Avacado and spinach on rotation, you can add greens or nuts up to you, have a go it's ideal for daily meal prep. 1 block will give you 2 days worth and 15g of protein per meal. Plus it is a great way of getting turmeric into your meals to reduce any inflammation you may have.
