Three foods we’ll be chatting about at our Revive Charity Events are turmeric, ginger and mixed seeds. Nutritionist Mary Cotter will give us the why, when and how to get maximum benefit from these go-to immunity supporting foods. Meantime here are a few quick recipe ideas:
The ancient superfood turmeric works well as a latte or smoothie. Turmeric – and specifically curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric – is more easily absorbed when combined with black pepper and also binds to healthy fats such as coconut oil, so include both and choose full fat dairy, almond or coconut milk to optimise absorption.
Combine and heat gently:
Stir in 3 cups of full fat milk of your choice – heat through then sweeten to taste with a little honey or maple syrup.
No bake-off style disasters involved in creating these tasty energy bites. Just blast in a nutribullet or food processor. You can vary the below to combine your favourite flavours and also pack in seeds that you might not otherwise use.
Combine all ingredients in a nutribullet or food processer, roll into balls then coat in toasted sesame seeds, toasted coconut or dip in melted dark chocolate for extra bliss. This recipe makes 30 balls so you can freeze in batches then bring out on the day you want to eat them.
These seeded crackers are great with all your favourite dips, salads or soups. They are gluten free, dairy free, packed with your choice of seeds and super quick to make.Read more Revive articles
