Valentine’s Day Mocha + Banana Smoothie Bowl

Written by Lee on . Posted in anti-inflammatory, Blog, Blog Breakfast, Dairy Free, drinks, Gluten Free, Organic, Seasonal, Sugar Free, Summer, Vegetarian, Wheat Free, Yeast Free

There are two types of people in this world; those who eagerly count down the days till the 14th of February and those who want to pop every heart-shaped balloon in site.

Don't get me wrong, I love Valentine's Day but sometimes... sometimes it can get a bit too much. We make reservations for the fanciest of restaurants, we prepare ourselves for the pure wonder of it all and then we land up getting a little disappointed when it's not the exact fairytale we've dreamed of...

Every.

Single.

Year.

Do we never learn?

Let's simplify Valentine's Day this year. We can all agree that Valentine's day is a day about love - whether it's with yourself, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, partner, friend, dog, neighbour, neighbour’s dog, it's time to spread the love! 

And in true Supercharged Food fashion, the way we’re going to spread some luuuurve today is with food. What better way to start the day than with showing your love with some breakfast in bed? 

If you or your love of choice think that starting the day feeling both happy and energised is a foreign myth unless you’ve had your morning cuppa joe, or, if you can’t make words or look anyone in the eye until you've had your first sip of creamy coffee in the a.m., this one is especially for you.

Let’s take that espresso shot, throw it into the blender and espresso some love with a mega morning smoothie!

My delicious Mocha and Banana Smoothie Bowl recipe is from my latest book Supercharge Your Gut, and it’s every bit as good as it sounds.

This delicious smoothie made with real coffee (which you can substitute for dandelion tea if you’re *gasp* not a coffee lover), raw cacao, chia seeds, hazelnuts and blissful bananas feels a little like monkey magic. This bowl will give you a natural hit of everyone’s favourite hormone, dopamine – the happy one (if you know what I mean ;-)!)  Plus, it tastes like chocolate. If anyone ever tells you that you can’t have chocolate for breakfast, they’re wrong and you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life!

Apple Cider Gummy Bears + Booktopia Supercharge Your Gut Special Offer

Written by Lee on . Posted in Blog, Blog Snacks, Candida Friendly, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Snacks, Spring, Sugar Free, Summer, supercharged food, Supercharged Food Menu, Wheat Free, Yeast Free

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I have a passion for healtha-fying traditional recipes and making them kid-friendly. In fact, I’ve got a whole book dedicated to it called Supercharged Food for Kids.

If you’re trying to add more apple cider vinegar to yours, your kids or your neighbour’s diet, but can’t stand the taste, you may want to give my gummies a whirl. They're one of the many delicious recipes from my latest book, Supercharge Your Gut. 

It was great being able to drop into Booktopia HQ yesterday and sign hundreds of books, it's safe to say I may have writers cramp for a few days but I have picked up some brand new calligraphy skills to add to my resume!

If you can't wait to get your hands on a copy, the wonderful people at Booktopia are stocking these signed copies which are available right now at the special price of only $27.95. You can pick one up here.

Now that we’re done with a little shameless plug, it’s time to get down to business. And by business, I mean Apple Cider Gummy Bears Business. It's serious stuff, you know!

Apple cider vinegar is seriously good for our health. It can help tackle colds and flus, tame troubled tummies, ease a scratchy throat, control blood sugar levels and even boost weight loss. It has beautiful probiotic enzymes to help balance gut bacteria, improve nutrient assimilation and balance pH levels.

When I’m talking about apple cider vinegar, I mean the real thing. NOT the sweetened and sparkly apple ciders kids are drinking these days. The REAL variety of apple cider vinegar is unfiltered and contains the ‘mother’ of all ingredients – the mother! Most  apple cider vinegars out there have had this crucial ingredient removed and are heavily processed, so make sure you find one that’s got it all intact like this one here.

I'll be the first to admit it, while apple cider vinegar sounds great for our health, it isn't usually the most palatable of ingredients to kids (and pretty much everyone else out there too... if your friend says they LOVE apple cider vinegar, they're probably lying). This is why I’ve combined it with a gut-healing guru, gelatine, and some natural apple juice to make these gummies yummy and good for the tummy!

Gelatine does all the heavy lifting when it comes to gut health! It helps to seal the lining of the gut that's often been opened by various factors such as poor diet and stress. Gelatine can also improve the strength of our digestive system and enhance the secretion of gastric acids to help us break down food, making it easier for us to absorb all the nutrients we're eating! If you're trying to improve your bowel movements (sorry for the possible TMI), gelatine is your gut ninja as it absorbs water which keeps the digestive tract running with fluid and so, promotes good intestinal transit time and healthy bowel movements. Woo-Poo! 

If you're ready to have some seriously devoted healthy gummy fans, you have to give my Apple Cider Gummy Bears a try.

Apple Cider Gummy Bears

Makes about 12

Ingredients:

  • 250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) apple juice (no added sugar)
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz/164 cup) apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons powdered gelatine

Method:

  • In a small saucepan, warm the apple juice and vinegar over medium heat.
  • When it starts to bubble, remove from the heat.
  • Sprinkle the gelatine on top and whisk briskly until dissolved. Strain.
  • Pour into teddy bear moulds, or other moulds of your choice, or into a small lined baking tin.
  • Refrigerate for 1–2 hours, or until set.
  • Turn out of the moulds, or cut into small squares to serve. The gummies will keep in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for 1–2 weeks.

SUPERCHARGED TIP:

For my vegetarian friends, you can now have you gummies and eat them too! To make Aloe Vera Gummies, replace the vinegar with aloe vera juice.

For Vegetarian Gummies, simply heat up 350 ml (12 fl oz) aloe vera juice in a saucepan, add 1/2 tsp agar-agar powder and stir to dissolve. Agar agar is a flavorless gelling agent, derived from cooked and pressed seaweed.

Continue stirring for a couple of minutes. When the mixture starts to boil, remove from the heat, add some liquid stevia, vanilla extract, chopped mint or whatever spice you like — even berries would be nice!

Pour into an ice-cube tray. Top with shredded coconut if you like, then refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until set.

Light Up Your Summer Table with Four Seasonal Salads

Written by Lee on . Posted in anti-inflammatory, Blog, Blog Dinner, Blog Lunch, Blog Salads, Nutrient Rich, Organic, Seasonal, Sugar Free, Summer, Vegetarian

It’s beginning to look a lot like summer,

Everywhere you go! 

Imagine your ideal holiday period.

Are you cuddled up by the fire with your special someone, or perhaps caravanning by the beach with family, tripping overseas in a foreign kitchen, or maybe even camping in the bush?  You may even be lying on the grass at your annual picnic?

Wherever you are, there’s one thing we all can agree on – it’s spending time with your special ones that matters the most… and the food. Okay, maybe two things we can all agree on then.

While festive feasting in Australia may not look like steaming hot chocolates, roads studded with fairy lights and snowflakes, stuffed chooks and bellies filled with pudding, holiday season is still holiday season! While it’s a little too hot for full roasts and mashed potatoes here in Australia, we can still celebrate the season with fresh produce and delicious salads – what could be better?

I’ve created four delicious salad recipes you can make wherever your festivities may take you. Just make sure that when you do enjoy these beauties, you’re enjoying them with your special people.

The only Kale and Strawberry and Avocado Salad you'll need this holiday season.

What do you get when you combine sweetness, bitterness and bright colours?

My Kale and Strawberry Salad, of course!

This totally good-for-you salad is filled with veggies, berries and healthy fats which make a nutrient-dense meal suitable for anyone.

Our forest friend, kale, delivers protein, fibre and impressive amounts of vitamin A and C, making it a powerful antioxidant.

Kale’s dynamic partner in crime (and by crime, I mean tasting good because there’s literally nothing harmful about this salad!), strawberries, are full of vitamin C that’ll help boost immunity and even keep wrinkles at bay! 

The combination of the green and the pink make this salad almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

Seeing as this salad is simple and easy to make, it means you’ll have more time to spend with your friends and family this holiday season. You’re welcome.

This welcoming dish brings a touch of summer to your table. and right down to the dressing is a total knockout that'll blow your mind!

Who knew healthy could taste so good?

Kale, Strawberry and Avocado Salad with Speedy Jam Jar Dressing

Serves 2-3


Ingredients:

Speedy Jam Jar Dressing


Method

  • In a large bowl place lemon juice and olive oil and stir then massage it into kale leaves adding a pinch or two of sea salt. Keep massaging until leaves are soft and dark green
  • Add remaining ingredients and toss
  • To make the dressing whisk all ingredients together

Fig and Goats Cheese (Yum!)

Get ready for an ultimate platter that’ll make you forget all about your run-of-the-mill, sad garden salad.

This Fig and Goats Cheese Platter will wow your guests and make you change the way you think about cooking altogether. This throw-together salad is so simple that it just might work!

I can’t believe it when I hear people say they dislike the taste of figs! Who can possibly deny themselves the pleasure of lusciously sweet and summery figs that have a chewy flesh, smooth skin and crunchy seeded centre? My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Figs are high in potassium that’ll help lower blood pressure. They’re also high in fibre to get things moving on your insides, which is essential with all the over-eating we tend to do around the holiday season! Or you can always try my Love Your Gut powder to remove the junk from your trunk.

Another summer fruit that’s ready to finally get in the spotlight, peaches, are tantalizing for our tastebuds and high in antioxidants which help reduce our disease risk.

Now that we’ve got our fruit sorted, we need to find an edge. This is where Goat’s cheese comes in. Goat’s cheese is high in calcium and essential fatty acids and can be much easier to digest than other cheeses. It’s also known to cause less inflammation in the body than regular dairy and helps aid nutrient absorption. Goat to love that!

Combine these three ingredients with antioxidant-rich greens and one delicious dressing and you’ve got one heck of a platter! Grab the recipe here. 

 Teacup Watermelon Salad

 

As a foodie, there’s something about the changing of season that always brings me joy. I love to see what each season provides me and, form recipes that celebrate produce of the season. While in winter we tend to crave soups and stews, summer provides us with a need for hydrating and fresh produce. Namely, watermelon.

To me, summer just yells watermelon. There’s nothing that adds more bliss to a hot summer day than eating the right piece of sweet and juicy watermelon. While you can enjoy watermelon just on its own, I love putting it into a good watermelon salad. If you’ve never tried watermelon in a salad, you’re in for a treat with this recipe! This salad comes from my book Fast Your Way to Wellness which is full of summer recipes that are as good for your waistline as they are for your soul! It’s perfect for sustaining abounding energy and a healthy weight year-round. 

I’m not sure which genius thought it would be a good idea to combine watermelon with cheese and mint, but whoever it was, I owe them! This interesting collaboration knocks your socks off and keeps you coming back for seconds every time.

While the sweet juiciness of watermelon comes through, it’s balanced by the bite of the crumbled Goat's cheese and cooling zing of fresh mint.

Watermelons are about 92 percent water, making every bite perfectly hydrating! They're also rich in vitamin A, B6 and C, as well as beauty-boosting antioxidants that’ll keep your skin glowing all summer long.

This dainty teacup salad can bring joy on warm days as a refreshing snack, light meal or even dessert.

I’ve dressed this bad-boy with a zesty mixture of lemon and lime, with floral notes of coriander of course, creamy sheep’s milk yoghurt.

Check out the recipe here.

Vegan Caesar Salad

I've taken an alternative approach to your summer menus and created a #meatlessmonday extravaganza! If you’re looking to cater for vegetarians, flexitarians or vegans, you’re definitely going to want to try this one!

While meatless meals are great for our digestion and can make us feel lighter than other ones, often times, meat-free dishes, like faux soy meats, are full of processed ingredients and chemicals that make the whole vegetarian thing not so good after all!

When cooking without meat, be sure to use fresh and natural ingredients. Also remember to include a source of protein, such as beans, seeds, tofu or tempeh.

What’s tempeh, you ask?

Tempeh is made of fermented, cooked soybeans, meaning it’s less processed than tofu and high in protein and fibre. This makes it easier for us to digest and richer in probiotics which are key to increasing our gut microflora; an aspect of health that tends to go out the window in holiday season. Probiotics help break down sugars, control harmful bacteria and improve our immune system so we can enjoy summer and the holidays sniffle-free.

Tempeh has a slightly earthy and sweet taste and is firm and chewy in texture.

My Vegan Caesar salad, made with tofu’s lesser known tempeh, is the perfect Christmas dish. This delicious Caesar salad is so good, you’ll be looking forward to Mondays from now on!

Check it out here.

Supercharged Christmas Recipes

Written by Lee on . Posted in Blog, Blog Dinner, Blog Lunch, Blog Salads, Gluten Free, Organic, Seasonal, Summer, Supercharged Food Menu, Wheat Free, Yeast Free

With Christmas just around the corner, I can hear the sleigh bells ringing, the summer barbeques sizzling and the Christmas crackers snapping! It truly is the season to be jolly, indulge and celebrate with family, friends and loved ones. But, one sound we don’t want to hear as we head into summer is the popping of our jean buttons!

So how can we indulge without overdoing it? Is it really possible to have healthy Christmas meals that are fulfilling and still kind to our bodies? Well, you can probably guess my answer to that question is a big fat yes! While some people can’t wait to get stuck into that huge roast ham or enjoy a plateful of prawns, others have mixed emotions about sitting at the family dinner table or heading to the office parties at Christmas. For some, holiday seasons can cause feelings of fear and guilt around food. But, the good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way!
With the right ingredients, scrumptious recipes and a mindful approach to food, Christmas can be enjoyably satisfying and guilt free!

Here are a few tips to Supercharge your food this Christmas:

  • Don’t be afraid to get extra spicy this Christmas. Rather than turning up the heat, create a sizzle by using flavoursome and fragrant spices like cumin, turmeric and ginger. These have an abundance of anti-inflammatory properties and help to ease digestion.
  • Skip those white potatoes and reach for root vegetables like sweet potato, parsnips and turnips instead. These have more nutritional value as they are loaded with vitamins and have fewer calories per serve!
  • Opt for natural, organic, wholefood ingredients. Instead of buying pre-made desserts or packaged chocolates, try baking your own treats from scratch.
  • Recipes like my pumpkin pie or fudge brownies are simple to make and better for our bodies than any of the store bought stuff!
  • Eating mindfully is a great way to refrain from overeating and overindulging. Really pay attention to the flavours and textures of what you’re eating. Instead of mindlessly gorging on food, try to slow down and enjoy every bite of every meal. Focusing on the look, smell, taste and feel of your food will help you to listen to your body more. So, you can let go of any anxiety or guilt around eating and really celebrate the food and the people you’re with!

This Christmas I've created three recipes - a main of spiced leg of lamb roast and two sides, a tray of roasted root vegetables and pan-fried toasted greens. These dishes look delightfully festive and taste super scrumptious…even Scrooge wouldn’t be able to help but smile! Whilst they are full of nutrient-rich ingredients, these recipes are simple and straightforward to put together. You won’t need a Christmas miracle or any elves to help this year!

The great thing about these recipes is you can do a lot of the preparation the day before. So when your friends and family are over you’ll have more time to spend with them, instead of prancing and dashing around in the kitchen.

I like to marinate a leg of lamb overnight so it really soaks up all the flavours of herbs and spices. But also, to ensure the only thing I have to do on Christmas day is just pop it in the oven #sneaky. I do the same thing with the veggies too. Wash, chop and prepare everything the previous day or night, then just place it under meat when ready. This makes for a super simple and stress-free Christmas lunch!

Leg of Lamb Roast with Spiced Marinade
This leg of lamb recipe is packed with a variety of herbs and spices that will have your taste buds singing and your insides glowing. Combining lamb with aromatic sprigs of fresh rosemary adds flavor and fragrance to the meat, whilst also offering numerous health benefits to your digestive system. Since it's rich in antioxidants and contains anti-inflammatory properties, rosemary eases indigestion and naturally relieves tummy pains that often accompany festive fare.

What I love about the spice marinade is that it doesn’t just season the lamb and enrich the taste, but it also combines nutrient dense ingredients like garlic, ginger, turmeric and cumin that boost the immune system and help your overall well being. These herbs and spices smooth the ingestion of food by lowering inflammation in the intestinal tract and stimulating the activity of digestive processes. This makes it easier for our bodies to digest and absorb the iron, protein and other vital nutrients in the lamb. It’s like a match made in Santa’s workshop…after just one bite, everyone will be oohh-ing, ahh-ing and tra-la-la-la-la-ing!

Ingredients:
Lamb

  • 2kg leg of lamb with bone
  • 4 garlic cloves, whole
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs, chopped
  • 1 fresh chili, seeded and chopped
  • 150g of truss vined berry tomatoes
  • Sea salt and black pepper, freshly ground, to taste

Spiced Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons sheep’s milk yoghurt
  • 3cm piece of ginger, grated finely
  • 4 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons of cumin, ground
  • 2 tablespoons of paprika, ground
  • 1 tablespoons of tumeric, ground
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds, ground
  • 2 lemons, squeezed to juice

Method:

  • Start with the marinade, mixing all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • With a sharp knife, make some deep cuts evenly across both sides of the lamb leg.
  • Rub a generous amount of salt and pepper into the meat. Then spoon the marinade over it, and massage in making sure it gets deep into the incisions.
  • Scatter half of the chopped rosemary and chili over the meat, pushing them into the cuts. Place the lamb in a bowl and cover with cling wrap. Leave overnight to marinate and let the meat soak up all the flavours and spices!
  • Remove the lamb from the fridge and leave in room temperature for at least 30 mins before cooking.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Place the lamb, left over rosemary, tomatoes and garlic cloves into a tray lined with foil and roast for 20mins.
  • Turn the heat down to 150C and cook for a further 1hr and 40mins for lamb that is pink in the middle.
  • Halfway through roasting or once the lamb is crisp and golden on the outside, shake the tray, cover with foil then rotate and return to oven the opposite way.
  • Remove from the oven, leave foil on loosely and let it rest on a lamb rack for at least 15mins.
  • Slice and Serve!

Roasted Root Vegetables
While that creamy, cheesy potato bake might seem like a good idea at first. It usually leaves us feeling bloated and sluggish. Substituting white potatoes for roasted root vegetables is a great and delicious way to make Christmas that little bit more nourishing.

Root veggies like sweet potato, carrots, turnips, and parsnips are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin B, beta-carotene and iron. These nutrient rich veggies work to cleanse our system and lower inflammation, increasing the absorption of vital nutrients in our digestive tract. 

While white potatoes and other grains tend to cause digestive or inflammatory issues. Root veggies offer complex carbohydrates and fibre that can stay in the digestive system longer, so our bodies have more energy and can maintain a feeling of fullness. With fewer calories and more essential nutrients, these simple vegetables sure do have loads of power. They slow down digestion, help control our appetite and reduce cravings...exactly what we need when we’re faced with mountains of feasts at Christmas time!

Pairing these veggies with herbs and spices like rosemary, garlic and cumin not only gives them more depth of flavour, but also further enhances the health benefits. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of dutch baby carrots w skin on, whole if small or halved
  • 2 parsnips, peeled roughly and cut into wedges
  • 1 turnip, peeled roughly and cut into wedges
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled roughly and cut across to make round pieces
    about 1cm thick
  • 4 baby radish, some whole some halved
  • 2 baby fennel bulbs, cut into small wedges
  • 6 garlic gloves, whole
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of cumin, ground
  • Sea salt and black pepper, freshly ground, to taste

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Add all the vegetables to a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Toss them with cumin, half the olive oil and a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • Roast for 30mins, shaking and rotating the tray halfway through.
  • Add rosemary sprigs and left over olive oil and turn up the heat to 200C.
  • Roast for a further 20 - 30mins or until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.

Tips:

  • Make sure your veggies are all cut to similar sizes to ensure they bake evenly.
  • If you're cooking the veggies at the same time as the lamb leg, place them above the meat once it has about 45 mins of cooking time left.
  • Then once the lamb is ready and removed from the oven, turn the temperature up to 200C and roast for a further 15 mins or until tender.

Pan-fried Toasted Greens with Pomegranate and Cauliflower Rice Salad

This middle-eastern inspired salad is a healthy take on the classic tabbouleh. It’s a perfect compliment to the lamb or a filling vegetarian option! Not only is this recipe super healthy, it looks like Christmas in a bowl and tastes like a flavor party in your mouth…even the not-so- health-conscious eaters will be drawn back for seconds (probably even thirds!). 

Substituting white rice or cous cous for cauliflower is a great way of sneaking in that little bit of extra veg, whilst also offering fewer calories and a higher intake of essential nutrients like protein, vitamin C, and vitamin k. These help to support various functions in our body like the formation and repair of muscles, bones and skin cells.

Loaded with green veggies like asparagus, green beans and spinach, this salad is full of vitamins and minerals that can regulate our digestive processes and protect our bodies from toxins, especially in the gut. Whilst being low in calories, these greens are high in fiber and provide a good source of protein for the non-meat eaters!

Supercharged Tip:

  • Serve with goat’s cheese on the side and substitute butter for extra virgin olive oil for a substantial vegan option!

Ingredients:

  • 200g of green beans, halved
  • 100g of asparagus, halved
  • 1/2 large cauliflower head, chopped roughly
  • 1 cup of baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 pomegranate, seeds
  • 1 cup fresh herbs - parsley, coriander and mint
  • 1 tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 lemon, squeezed to juice
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of goats cheese, chopped

Method:

  • In a large bowl mix the spinach, herbs, tomato, onion and pomegranate.
  • Place cauliflower in a food processor and blitz until the consistency resembles rice. Briefly steam over boiling water for a couple minutes just to soften and warm the cauliflower rice
  • Heat a frying pan over a medium high heat. Add butter and garlic, stirring continuously. Once browned, add the green beans and asparagus, toasting them for about 3-5 minutes. Squeeze half the lemon juice over the veggies while cooking. You want them to be cooked but still crunchy and green.
  • Stir the cauliflower rice into the salad adding the rest of the lemon juice and tossing together.
  • Place the green beans and asparagus on top of the salad and crumble the goat’s cheese across.
  • Sprinkle sea salt and black pepper generously across the dish and serve!

Gut Healing Turmeric Chicken Broth

Makes 1 litre (35 FL OZ/4 cups)

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole organic chicken
  • 2 chicken feet, for extra gelatine (optional)
  • 2 litres (68 fl oz/8 cups) filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 celery stalks, chopped 
  • 5 cm (1 inch) knob of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1􏰙/2 teaspoon ground turmeric, or grated fresh turmeric
  • a good pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • 1 bunch of flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, about 100 g (31􏰙2 oz) 
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed 

Method:

  • Put the chicken in a large stainless-steel stockpot, along with the chicken feet, if using. Pour in the water, vinegar and lemon juice. Add the onion, celery, ginger, turmeric and salt, and season generously with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Bring to the boil over medium heat, skimming off any foam that rises to the top. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting, then cover and simmer for 2 hours.
  • Remove from the heat, remove the chicken from the pot and leave until cool enough to handle. Take the meat off the bones, reserving the bones and setting the meat aside for another use.
  • Return the bones to the pot and simmer over very low heat for 4–6 hours, checking now and then and adding a little more filtered water if needed.
  • Add the parsley and garlic and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove the bones with a slotted spoon, then strain the broth into airtight containers and refrigerate until the fat congeals on top.
  • The broth will keep in the fridge for 4–5 days, covered with a good layer of its natural fat. (Don’t discard the fat — it’s healthy, tasty and great for cooking with!) Alternatively, you can freeze the broth for up to 3 months.

You can freeze the broths in ice-cube trays, to give convenient little portions to pop into other dishes. 

Vegan Caesar Salad

Written by Lee on . Posted in Blog, Blog Dinner, Blog Lunch, Blog Salads, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Organic, Seasonal, Supercharged Food Menu, Vegetarian, Wheat Free, Yeast Free

Whether you’re a vegetarian, flexterian, #meatlessmonday follower, vegan or just trying to cut down on your overall meat intake, everyone can benefit from eating meatless meals. Sometimes it's just hard to know the best way to go about this. Is it okay to eat soy? How good are those faux soy meats? Why is my tofu forever-soggy and tasteless?

Ever had a friend that you dig but everyone seems to misunderstand them?

This friend only ever has good intentions; they're always kind and caring. Yet, people seem to create rumours about them and demonise them.

This, my friends, is how I feel about soy.

I think it’s fair to say that as a society, we’ve created a fair bit of fear around soy. I’ve heard some crazy rumours about soy in the past - like that it'll make men grow man-boobs, ruin female hormones and be harmful to heart health.

While I do agree there are soy products that aren’t so good for us, like non-traditional, GMO soy cereals, soy thickeners used to emulsify products or plastic-tasting fake meats, there are good quality and traditional sources of soy that can be beneficial to your wellbeing in moderation.

Organic and non-GMO soy products such as miso, tempeh, natto and tofu are all great sources of protein, vitamins and minerals. Consuming non-GMO soy products is a great way to get a tasty source of protein and minerals in while cutting down on your meat intake. 

There’s a little-known community of people known as the Okinawans in Japan. They follow a plant-based diet which involves low levels of dairy and grains, and a plethora of colourful vegetables and soy products. They have one of the lowest risks of atherosclerosis, hormone issues and hypertension in the world. They’re one of the healthiest communities on the planet and they regularly consume healthy versions of soy - something must be up here!

Tofu's less popular, but definitely better-looking older cousin, tempeh, is also made of soybeans. However, tempeh is made of fermented, cooked soybeans,  meaning it's less processed than tofu and higher in both protein and fibre. This fermentation process makes it easier for us to digest and makes it rich  in probiotics which are key to healthy gut microflora. Probiotics help us break down sugars, control harmful bacteria, fight diarrhoea, relieve indigestion, resist against chronic inflammation and boost immune system function.

Tempeh is also rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can help protect blood vessels from oxidative and inflammatory damage. Tempeh is also high in protein so it can be a beneficial addition to your diet if you're trying to lose weight and/or build muscle.  While soy may not contain as much calcium as regular milk, it does contain triple the amount of magnesium which is a great mineral for maintaining bone and muscle health. 

For those of you who've never tried tempeh before, it has a slightly earthy and sweet taste and is firm and chewy in texture.

If you want more vegetarian and vegan recipes, my cookbook Eat, Clean Green and Vegetarian has over 120 delicious and nutritious plant-based recipes. They're seriously good. 

I've spiced up this tempeh and placed it into a delicious caesar salad and let me tell you, your meat-inclined friends won't even know the difference!

 I'd love to know what you guys think! Leave a comment below 🙂

Vegan Caesar Salad

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 block of tempeh, chopped into (1/4 inch) cubes
  • 3 tablespoons wheat-free tamari
  • 1 Cos lettuce, washed, dried and torn
  • 1 small bunch shallots, roughly chopped

Dressing

Method

  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and fry the tempeh for five to ten minutes, or until golden. Add the tamari and heat until warm. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  • To make the dressing, mix all the dressing ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Place the Cos and shallots in a bowl and spoon over the dressing, tossing to ensure the salad is evenly coated. Sprinkle the cooled tempeh over the top and serve.

Bohemian Baked Vegetable Bowl

Written by Lee on . Posted in anti-inflammatory, Blog, Blog Dinner, Blog Lunch, Blog Salads, Dairy Free, gut health, Heal Your Gut, Organic, Seasonal, Sugar Free, Vegetarian, Wheat Free


If you’re a keen foodie who's always riding with the food trends, there’s no doubt you’ve already jumped on the Buddha bowl bandwagon.

These flawless bowls are bouncing with all the veggies, perfectly-packed protein and avocado that's diced up a little too neatly (Seriously, HOW do they do it?!). 

Here at Supercharged HQ, we're not into the neat and the pretty - the flat-lays of life. We love the messy, the real and the raw (or baked in this case). That's what life is after all. There's beauty in the irregularity and that's why my Bohemian Baked Veg Bowl, brewed in the hinterland of Byron Bay is a forever recipe.

Have you heard of the Bohemian Baked Veg Bowl ever?

Probably not because it's a Supercharged special!  Until someone decides to permanently borrow it of course. (Blogger jokes ;))

The Bohemian Baked Veg Bowl is all about getting real and letting out your true colours. Finding your loosest pair of harem pants, letting down your flowy hair (or at least pretending to) and getting the groovy music going, man. I’m starting a revolution and inviting you to get amongst it, baby!

Viva le bowlolution!

My Bohemian Baked Veg Bowl is also full of nutrients to tell you the truth. It’s truly a melting pot of flavours where everything is welcome and loved, in all it's mess and glory!  

This bowl is aesthetically pleasing (perfect for the keen instagrammer), versatile and well… delicious. Plus, it’s super simple to make and not very time consuming either. Essentially, it’s a bowl with all the good stuff – lots of veggies, greens and seeds. Oh, and let’s not forget a creamy tahini dressing that’s almost too good to be true. *Wipes drool from side of mouth*.

The best part about my bohemian veg bowl is that it’s fool-proof! Yep, almost anyone who knows how to work an oven and shake ingredients in a jar can make this one. Plus, you probably have everything lying in your fridge and store cupboard anyway.

I know you're just as excited as I am by this discovery so let's dive straight to it!

Anti-inflammatory spring pea soup

Written by Lee on . Posted in anti-inflammatory, Blog, Blog Dinner, Blog Lunch, Candida Friendly, Dairy Free, gut health, Heal Your Gut, Organic, Seasonal, Sugar Free, Summer, Vegetarian, Yeast Free

Inflammation.

What does the word even mean?

We’ve all heard the term inflammation before – whether it’s a stiff joint, achy back, fever or stomach issue, many of us at some point in our lives have experienced it too. Mild inflammation is normal and can be good, showing that your body’s natural defences are working properly. 

For example, let's say you're walking or doing some kind of activity and you fall over, hurt your knee and it starts to swell, that's inflammation in action! Basically, what's happening is your body senses the pain, rushes blood to the site and antibodies are produced which causes swelling to occur. Inflammation here is part of the healing process and it's something we require. 

However, when the body starts to overreact to causes of harm, inflammation can be an issue. Inflammation can have a much bigger impact on our bodies than we realise. It has the potential to spread throughout the body, spiral out of control and cause a whole list of health conditions like arthritis, IBS and more!

Houston, we have a problem. 

More often than not, in cases of inflammation, doctors prescribe anti-inflammatory medication which when taken long-term can have unwanted side effects such as gastrointestinal issues, ulceration and liver or kidney problems. In typical Supercharged Food fashion, one way to alleviate inflammation is by looking at what's on your plate. Taking a more natural approach to reducing inflammation through diet can play a HUGE role in reducing inflammation in the body.

Today I'm sharing some of my key ingredients for reducing inflammation;

Let's start with fibre. By eating lots of fibre-rich fruits, like fruit, vegetables and well prepared whole grains; we can help to reduce inflammation. The aim is to eat about 25 grams of fibre per day.

Some of my favourite vegetables high in anti-inflammatory properties include onion, garlic, peas, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. However, these foods can cause bloating and flatulence in some people so test out small amounts before going full steam ahead.

An easy way to enjoy lots of anti-inflammatory veggies is to sneak them into a hearty soup. Try my  Oven-Baked Veg and Garlic Soup or you might like to the gorgeous Anti-inflammatory spring pea soup down below.

Spice it up! There are so many anti-inflammatory herbs and spices you can use in your everyday cooking to reduce inflammation. Turmeric and Ginger are great. Ginger contains anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial compounds, which block inflammation-producing genes. Whilst the golden hued-spice that’s taken the health world by storm doesn’t need much of an introduction. Turmeric shuts down inflammation in the body and can help prevent liver disease and take care of joint problems.  If you’re in need of these two spices in your life, why not make my Golden Gut Oatmeal Cookies or Turmeric Fudge? Both of these magical spices can be found in a delicious and ready-to-go form in my Golden Gut Blend.

If you're looking at lowering inflammation levels, be sure to cut down on refined sugar, processed foods and trans fat as much as you can. These all increase inflammation in the body. When you’re looking to cut out trans fats, look for their secret code word -  hydrogenated!  Hydrogenated is commercial talk for trans fats. Producers sneak it into vegetable oils, cookies and some margarines, and they can be cleverly disguised. Trans fats can cause toxicity, increase blood pressure and of course, increase inflammation in the body.

Never know what oil to buy at the shops? Do you sometimes want to omit it altogether? The truth is, our bodies NEED fat to function properly, so it’s important to choose fats with benefits. Extra virgin olive oil and extra-virgin coconut oil contain anti-inflammatory properties and a good option for everything – from stir fries, baking vegetables or salad dressings, they have multiple uses and add a delicious taste to everything.

My next suggestion is to become acquainted with Omega-3 fatty foods. I'm talking walnuts, chia seeds and fish such as salmon. Chia seeds are more than fancy little superfood seeds that make delicious puddings (although, that’s a pretty good function on it’s own for breakfast on rush hour mornings!). Chia seeds help to reduce spikes in blood sugar which decreases bodily inflammation. Delicious recipe to try is my Chia and Berry Overnight Breakfast Jar.

If you're a fan of fish and looking for a delicious oceanic dinner, salmon is absolutely brimming with Omega-3's! My Smoked Salmon Living Lentil Bowl will have you swearing by omega-3's everyday. 

While inflammation can cause a huge impact on the body, we don’t necessarily need to seek out pharmaceutical remedies all the time, and natural remedies are available in the kitchen. By monitoring the food you eat and adjusting what you eat accordingly, you can be assured that you’ll be helping to reduce inflammation in your body with every mouthful of these key ingredients.

To get you started on your anti-inflammatory way, I’m sharing my Spring Pea Soup. Peas contain dietary fibre and antioxidants so they reduce inflammation AND encourage healthy gut bacteria. They’re also low in calories but high in protein, antioxidants and micronutrients. 

Pass the Peas, Please!

Anti-inflammatory spring pea soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil or ghee
  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 teaspoons Celtic sea salt

Are you ready to take the leap and find a replacement for your morning half-almond, half-soy, no-fat strong latte with half an equal?

When you're in a rush (like, every morning), do you sometimes run out the door, get on the bus or hop into your car and only then, remember that you’ve forgotten to eat breakfast; the meal that you’ve always heard is the most important meal of the day?

FREE eBook + Coconut Yo-Gut

Written by Lee on . Posted in Blog, Blog Breakfast, Blog Snacks, Dairy Free, Dessert, Desserts, Gluten Free, gut healing, gut health, Heal Your Gut Powder, Heal Your Gut Powder, Nutrient Rich, Organic, Wheat Free

As you may already know, I'm a raving fan of my Love Your Gut Powder. Among many of it's benefits, the powder helps clean out accumulated build-up of waste, toxins, metals and mucous in the digestive tract as well as improving digestion and increasing nutrient absorption. 

Ever since launching the powder, I've received thousands of questions asking me how I like to incorporate Love Your Gut Powder into my everyday life; my tricks, my tips and my recipes. I thought it was time to finally give the people what they want! This is why I'm excited to launch my FREE Love Your Gut Powder E-Book. This eBook contains 12 gut-loving recipes to help you fall in love with your gut. It includes smoothies, breakfasts, turmeric treats and more!

This coconut yo-gut is just one of the supercharged delicious recipes you'll find in the free eBook

This frozen dessert is so delicious you wouldn't know it's good for you! 

Initially, coconut yogurt is made with pressed coconut milk and water. Coconuts are high in fat which is amazing for lowering bad cholesterol levels and helping you lose a few inches on the waist line! Most coconut yoghurts are dairy-free, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the same gut-healing effects as normal yoghurts do.

Coconut yoghurt contains live cultures and bacteria which have a probiotic effect on the body. Probiotics help boost our immune system, improve digestion and assist with various bowel conditions like constipation and irritable bowel syndrome.

Probiotics are also amazing for keeping your gut in check. This is why I just couldn’t resist adding in my Love Your Gut powder into the mix! Double the gut health, double the fun!

To make my frozen coyo easier for you guys, I’ve gotten rid of some of the dirty work. Instead of having to make coconut yoghurt at home, my recipe requires a cup of already made coconut yoghurt. 

While it’s amazing if you have time to make the real thing from the start - not everybody has time to break the coconuts off the tree themselves and spend hours churning away in the kitchen! You are more than welcome to create your own coconut yoghurt for the recipe, but you have the okay from me to buy a good quality brand that you love and have fun with turning it into coconut frozen yo-gut!

There are some great brands of coconut yoghurt that are full of only the good stuff and no nasties. These can be enjoyed by all and will save you hours of slaving away in the kitchen. Just be sure to check the ingredients list before buying and look out for some hidden sugars and additives.  

My frozen coconut yoghurt recipe is high in fat, giving it a creamy texture and much fuller flavour! The bonus beauty of this recipe is that it can be jazzed up enough for a dinner party dessert and tastes just as naughty as the real thing.

Coconut yoghurt is undeniably delicious and having it frozen makes for a perfect treat!

Who is ready to go loco for some frozen coyo?
