Saturday Kitchen

So Saturday has rolled around once again… Did this week’s emails give you something to think about?

It should align your thoughts to looking after the basic things that are the building blocks to your pyramid where the exercise part is the icing on the cake to firm up your shape other than when you are brand new to exercise it’s not going to make a huge difference unless your sleep, stress and food are good.

As I was putting together these emails I had a discussion with one of my friends who had said that her skin had a bit of a break out… When I asked her about her sleep, stress and food they were all out of whack.

She was pleased to hear that this week’s email topics were going to help her.

Make your focus these next few weeks getting yourself settled an in to this routine, calm your body, free your mind and nourish your soul.

My favourite recipe when I want a boost of nourishment to feed my soul

Jen’s  Energy Boost Salad

50g quinoa

50g bulgur wheat

400ml water/stock

1 carrot shaved or cut to matchsticks

½ pepper

2 broccoli spears

Tablespoon ground macadamia



Boil 400ml water/stock, add quinoa & bulgur wheat and gently simmer for 20-25mins until most of the water has evaporated. Leave to stand for 10mins to soak up the rest of the liquid.

Fluff quinoa & bulgur wheat up and add the rest of the ingredients garnishing with macadamia, basil and coriander or any fresh herbs that you like.

This will make 2-3 serves and keeps in the fridge for 2-3 days in air tight container.
