Beautiful Beetroot Cous Cous

July 10, 2016

Introducing my current whole food obsession: beetroot cous cous! 😍  SO easy to throw together – just grab a bunch of RAW beetroot from your local markets or grocery store instead of the ‘stuff ‘that comes in a can. Why? Because canned Beetroot is typically mixed with sulphites, sugar and food colouring that messes with your gut/digestion #nothankyou right!? I have been doing this a LOT lately…making vegetable cous cous in place of the usual gluten free grains I eat. Sometimes it’s good to change things up – in life and food, I highly recommend it.  Continue Reading…

These are my quinoa leftovers from last night’s dinner that I’ve revived for breakfast with some sautéed veggies, deeeeeeeelish! 🙏🏻  I absolutely love quinoa because it’s easy to make, works with sweet and savoury dishes PLUS it’s a ‘complete protein’ which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids your body needs for repair. This super seed (no, it’s NOT a grain!) is also a source of L-lysine, important for tissue growth and formation of collagen which we all know by now is super important for healthy skin 👌🏻😊

Here’s how to make the perfect quinoa… Continue Reading…
