At Supercharged Food we’re always thinking about food. Food, food, food! We love trying natural ingredients to supercharge our meals and drinks. Sometimes, like now, we even put them into a container and offer them to you.
Which is all a roundabout way of saying we have some exciting new products to show you that we are releasing today! They all form part of the Love Your Gut range as they each have some love to give to your fabulous tummy region.
I'm also sharing a wonderful gut friendly salad below which features a dressing using one of our supercharged ingredients.
Without further ado (but with an imaginary drum roll, if you please) here are the four new products we are launching;
Phew! There are quite a few new products actually! In any case, we’re super excited to share them with you. They’ve been years in the making, with sourcing by me, a qualified clinical nutritionist, from quality, passionate producers across Australia.
I'm here to give you the heads-up on how and why I developed these four new Supercharged Food products.
“I’m always playing with food ingredients and nutrients. It’s my job as a clinical nutritionist but it’s much more than that, it’s my passion. Not only that, it’s just super fun to find new ingredients or new ways with familiar ingredients.
This new batch of products have been in development in my clinic and kitchen for around 18 months now. They are all highly nutritious and ideal for your gut health regime.
Read on to find out more about how I worked on them…
Wild Organic Tasmanian Seaweed. It's so nutrient dense! I’ve been adding a pinch of seaweed into my cooking for years now. The only issue was the ‘bitty’ texture can be off-putting. So I worked with our team to make our seaweed superfine - it’s now barely perceptible in taste and texture. No one needs to know they’re getting wildly nutritious, organic Tasmanian Seaweed in their meals or smoothies. It’s a great source of prebiotic fibre for the gut too.
Organic Beef Liver Capsules. Many people are craving the nutrients of beef liver. But not many want to actually eat beef liver. I certainly don’t! These capsules make it easy to get beef liver's wonderful vitamins and minerals. Our liver is Australian too and grass-fed and grass finished.
Freeze dried beef liver is a good source of Vitamin B12 and Iron. I love to dump the gelatin caps out into a smoothie, you can't taste it at all.
Organic Curcumin + Black Pepper. I’ve been a fan of curcumin for gut health for years now. Curcumin, a polyphenol, is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that can support gastrointestinal health.
Years ago, I created our ever-popular Golden Gut blend with turmeric (of which curcumin is the active ingredient). Now you can have the benefits of curcumin in a convenient vegan capsule.
Australian Zeolite. No pun intended (well, maybe a little intended) but Zeolite is an 'underground' sensation in nutrition and naturopath circles. It’s a mineral straight from the pristine Australian desert. It’s beneficial for gut health and chronic eczema and rosacea. It’s supercharged with naturally occurring negative ions. In fact, it’s one of the world’s best sources of negative ions. Negative ions counteract the, mostly, positively charged ions emitted from modern day appliances (screens, air-conditioners, microwaves) and pollution.
Well, there you have it! A new batch of gut-loving ingredients for you to consider. To celebrate their launch we’re offering 20% off each of the products for a limited time!
All you have to do is type in ‘NEW PRODUCTS’ in the promo code field at the checkout.
And now for a delicious recipe...
Roasted Leek, Goat’s Cheese and Avocado Salad (Supercharged with Superfine Wild Seaweed Dressing).
Why not add more nutrients to your meals by supercharging them with a delicious wild seaweed dressing? The leeks and onions in this dish are a great source of prebiotic fibre for the gut and when they become caramelized, they sweeten up in the oven, adding a gorgeous depth of flavour.
- 5 medium trimmed leeks, washed and sliced 3cm thick
- 2 brown onions sliced into quarters
- 3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
- 2 cups kale washed and roughly chopped
- 2 avocados peeled and diced
- 2/3 cup Goat’s cheese
Wild Seaweed Dressing
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup tightly packed fresh herbs such as coriander, parsley, dill, basil and mint
- 1 garlic clove
- Pinch of Wild Tasmanian Seaweed
- ½ teaspoon Celtic Sea salt
- Black pepper, to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth
To make the salad:
Preheat the oven to 190°C
Toss the leeks and onions with three tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place leeks and onions on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, until starting to soften, turning once or twice.
Place kale into a large bowl and add avocado. Pour the dressing over the leeks and pile on top.
Scatter goats cheese over the top!
