In this post, we're bringing you three separate recipes, which when combined come together to make something utterly scrumptious and of course, healthy too.

 

1. Healthy Baked Millet Falafels 

Love falafels but don’t want your food deep fried and fatty? Well, you're in luck with these nutrient dense falafels. Here's why they are so good for you...

Weight-loss:
Chickpeas are an excellent source of fibre and protein (improving blood sugar levels, helping you feel fuller for longer and reduce your cravings) and are low in fat.

Supercharge your health:
In addition, they are a good source of minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, folic acid, and manganese and magnesium. Millet is a great gluten free hypoallergenic (low allergy grain) and is very alkalising on the body.

To compliment the main, we’re bringing you a simple, easy to prepare side salad. Yet one that is delightful, satisfying and super versatile!

 

2. Super Green Side Salad

Right, let's reveal what makes this salad just so good...

Skin and ageing:

One avocado has the same amount of potassium as 2 – 3 bananas, and is an excellent source of monounsaturated fatty acids – which help protect the skin, and vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that neutralises the oxidant effect of free radical, which are molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. The hard skin of the cucumber is rich in fibre and contains a variety of important minerals, including silica (a trace mineral which contributes to the strength of our connective tissues).


Detoxification:

Sunflower, pumpkin seeds and the flesh of the cucumber are packed with minerals which are essential for the detoxication pathways in the liver, such as vitamins C, A, B-vitamins. The monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from olive oil and seeds help excrete toxic conjugates produced from the detoxification processes in the liver.

Now it's time for the third and final recipe, and one for all you hummus fans out - especially if you're wanting to spice things up a little!

 

3. Muhammara Dip (Red Peppers & Walnuts)

Packed full of flavour, with a slight sweetness and a spicy kick, it is insanely good! It's one of those dips where the bowl is always scraped clean within minutes!

Here's why else it is so good...

Supercharge your health:

Low in fat, packed with protein, fibre, essential fats and essential vitamins and minerals, this dip is an excellent addition to your diet.

Walnuts are unique in their collection of anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as omega 3 fatty acids, phytonutrients including tannins, phenolic acids and flavonoids.

To the recipe!

All three recipes, when combined will give you something like the picture of our 'Here's what we made earlier'. Hungry? Thought you might be ;-)
