Green tea oats 46

 

Why have just one superfood, when you can have two? Green tea AND wheatgrass. This overnight oats recipe is absolutely delicious and a super way to start the day. You have your slow release carbs, protein, fibre and omega-3s in one satisfying, easy to prepare bowl.

This green tea, ginger and wheatgrass recipe has the perfect balance of sweetness and warmth from ginger balanced with herbaceous notes from the green tea. Wheatgrass can have a discerning flavour (you do get used to it with time!), but in this recipe, its grassy flavour is masked by the both the green tea and ginger, making it a great way introduce newcomers to wheatgrass.

Why green tea? It is high in antioxidants antioxidants and healing compounds like polyphenols, which help protect your heart through lowering blood pressure. These chemicals help regulate blood sugar and so help prevent diabetes. Through its caffeine content, green tea may improve brain function, improve physical performance, increase fat burning and boost metabolic rate.

Why wheatgrass? Wheatgrass is a natural energiser through its ability to promote oxygenation of tissues and in this way, it is reported to help increase stamina and physical performance. It also helps boost your metabolism (through boosting thyroid gland activity) and so may help with weight loss.

 

Also, wheatgrass helps boost the immune system (due to the high levels of antioxidants), stabilise blood sugar levels, balance hormone levels (and so may improve sleep and mental health), reduce inflammation and improve detoxification of harmful toxins from the body.

With its light green colour, this recipe is great for Halloween or perhaps even St Patrick’s Day. I love this recipe in the autumn and winter when my palate wants spicier flavours, as provided here by the ginger. If you prefer to have your overnight oats hot, you can heat up the oats in the microwave or hob, before decorating.

 Serves: 1 

Preparation time: 5 mins

Ingredients:

  • 50g Greek yoghurt or vegan yoghurt
  • 200ml milk (vegan if required; I love almond and soy milk)
  • 35g oats (gluten-free if required)
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1.5 tbsp protein powder (soya bean, pea or whey)
  • 1 stem ginger, sliced finely
  • 1/8th tsp ground ginger

To decorate: raw sliced almonds, toasted coconut chips, dried goldenberries, sliced apple, sliced plum, cracked linseed, walnuts, goji berries and peanut butter drizzle

 

Method:

  • In a bowl mix together the ingredients. Cover and leave in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • The overnight oats can be eaten cold or, if you prefer, you can heat up the oats (a few minutes in the microwave or on the hob; you may need to add a little more milk).
  • Decorate as desired (perhaps as a spooked face for Halloween!) and serve. Enjoy!

Good morning! Who loves green smoothies? ⠀ .⠀ I'm banking on this one to rev me up after 6 hrs sleep (*yawn!* I need an early night; the run up to Christmas is just so busy!). Just blend up spinach, chia seeds, coconut water, orange, almond milk, wheatgrass, protein powder, wheatgrass and green tea powder and decorate as desired. ⠀ .⠀ Have a super day!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . . . . .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @coconutmerchant @naturesheartuk @chiabiaseed @pulsinhq @cocovita @alpro @veganfoodspot @hbloggerscom⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vegan #veganrecipes #veganfood #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #veganism #veganlife #fitnessaddict #eatrealfood #veganathlete #veganpower #veganshare #fitnessaddict #girlswholift #vegandiet #whole30recipes #vegancommunity #whatveganseat #plantbased #poweredbyplants #dairyfree #fitfood #goodmoodfood #wholefoodplantbased #foodforthought #eatwholefoods #veganfitnessfood #foodisfuel #greensmoothie
Good evening! Where are the days going?! It only seems like Halloween the other day (so either my memory is getting better or I am getting older!!...Alas I think it is the latter!)⠀ .⠀ Tonight's post has a Christmassy feel. Would you be happy to receive a huge Kilner jar @kilneruk of these homemade chocolate and pecan biscotti? They have no refined sugar; I've used a little organic coconut sugar @naturesheartuk, plus a flax egg @linwoodhealthfoods and wee spot of coconut oil @coconutmerchant. I've also used protein crispies @veety.de and sugar-free dark chocolate chips @realfoodsource. Positively healthy!⠀ .⠀ I was never keen on shop-bought biscotti; i imagine they taste like stale rock hard dog biscuits (sorry dogs!). But home-made biscotti is a real treat; so crisp, fresh and a pleasure to munch. Now, are you a dunker or a nibbler?!!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Have a super evening and I hope you are more organised about Christmas than i am!. Oh yes, the recipe is available at my blog. just copy and paste the link below into your browser. ⠀ https://buff.ly/2poAJTN⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Have a super evening all!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #christmasgifts #christmasbaking #christmassy #vegan #veganrecipes #veganfood #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #veganism #veganlife #vegangirl #veganfitness #veganathlete #veganpower #veganshare #fitnessaddict #girlswholift #vegandiet #whole30recipes #whatveganseat #plantbased #poweredbyplants #801010 #fitfood #goodmoodfood #foodforthought #eatwholefoods #veganfitnessfood #foodisfuel
Happy #toasttuesday! Do you have days when you are indecisive? ⠀ .⠀ I couldn't decide if I wanted sweet or savoury for breakfast and so I had ...BOTH! Hehe. ⠀ .⠀ For the savoury: I toasted a slice of seeded sourdough from @basementcafeandbakery and topped it with avocado and a roast cranberry, goldenberry thyme relish (It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!). (This has got to be the easiest relish I have ever made!). The tanginess of the relish contrasts with the smooth creaminess of the avocado.⠀ .⠀ For the sweet, I topped the toast with vanilla soya yoghurt @alpro (It tastes amazing; like creme anglais!), raw dried cacao-covered goldenberries @naturesheartuk (my favourite) and some berries and pumpkin seeds. What a feast!! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Goldenberries are rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, high in protein, vitamin A, iron, vitamin C, potassium, fibre and B vitamins (B1, B2 and B6). With such a magnificent nutrient profile, goldenberries exert widespread benefits, from promoting good general health, boosting the immune, cardiovascular systems, healthy eyes and they may also help in weight loss through their fibre content. ⠀ .⠀ Have a Super day all (Only 14 days til Christmas!)⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . . . . . . . . .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #makesmewhole #wholefoodfavs #thecookfeed #veganvultures #foodieflatlays #worldwideveganfood #veganstrong #foodgawker #hownottodie #eattheworld #slimmingworld #gloobyfood #healthyrecipe #eatright #healthychoices #glutenfreelife #instayum #healthyeats #veganbodybuilding #vegangains #healthyfoodshare #eeeeeats #avocadolover #whatveganseat #veganshare #vegan #hclf #heresmyfood #vegannom
Good evening! ⠀ .⠀ Do you love chips? Me too! Sweet potato chips, that is! I have coated them in polenta to make them extra crispy and some sweet paprika and turmeric using Vitalising Superpowder @naturesheartuk for an extra antioxidant and anti-inflammatory boost. I have also tucked in some crispy cauliflower ginger wings, some shop-bought tasty jumbo falafels @cauldronfoods, baby beetroots @marksandspencer, lots of other veggies, pomegranate and pumpkin seeds and a tahini balsamic vinegar drizzle. Nom nom!⠀ .⠀ Why eat sweet potatoes? They are:⠀ * high in antioxidants (especially beta-carotene), which helps boost the immune system and may help improve brain function and memory, and promotes healthy vision and skin. ⠀ *rich in a prebiotic, fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), which encourages good bacterial growth in the gut and hence improve digestive health. ⠀ *Sweet potatoes help stabilise blood sugar levels and so a good choice for diabetics.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Chips away! Have a super evening!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . . . . .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @holland_barrett @thrivemags @thefeedfeed @veganfoodspot @hbloggerscom @veganshares @WeAreVeganuary . . #foodieflatlays #veganplate #veganfood #plantprotein #healthycooking #foods4thought #quickdinner #easymeals #fitmeals #healthyrecipes #veganhealth #govegan #holistichealth #eatfoodfeelgood #plantbasedvegan #veganfoodspot #makesmewhole #letscookvegan #slimmingworls #worldwideveganfood #thecookfeed #eatyourcolours #wholefoodfavs #glutenfreelife #wellness #eatright #veganforeverything #nomeatathlete #crueltyfreeliving #healthiswealth
Good morning! How better to start the working week but with some Christmas inspired healthy mini muffins! These cranberry, orange and cinnamon muffins are enriched with extra antioxidants, fibre, protein and omega-3s using Goldenberry and Chia Powerblend @naturesheartuk and protein powder @pulsinhq. There is no refined sugar added and instead of fat I have used soya yoghurt. The yoghurt makes these muffins fluffy and the ruby red cranberries add a lovely tartness to the sweeter sponge.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ A note on cranberries (credit to https://buff.ly/2RGU2nk)⠀ *Prevent and treat urinary tract infections⠀ *Decrease Inflammation⠀ *May help prevent certain cancers⠀ *Improve immune function⠀ *Benefit the digestive tract⠀ *Reduce risk of heart disease.⠀ .⠀ How many mini muffins can you eat?!!

Good evening! What's your favourite comfort food? One of my favourites are potstickers (shitake mushroom and tofu) with stir fry veg (check out the rainbow carrots!) in a white miso @tidefordorganics and sriracha sauce, thickened with 1 tsp of chia seeds. This miso adds a umami depth of flavour, whilst the sriracha adds a bit of a chilli kick. Mmm! And it takes under 15 mins to rustle up too! .⠀ A bit about miso.⠀ *It is made for fermented soya beans and therefore protein rich. It is also a probiotic, helping to promote a healthy gut and promote a healthy immune system. ⠀ .⠀ *Miso is also rich in minerals and a good source of various B vitamins, vitamins E, K and folic acid.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Have a super evening!.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . . . . . . . .⠀ @naturesheartuk @coconutmerchant @WeAreVeganuary @chiabiaseed ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vegan #veganrecipes #veganfood #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #veganism #veganlife #vegangirl #veganfitness #veganathlete #veganpower #veganshare #fitnessaddict #girlswholift #vegandiet #whole30recipes #vegancommunity #whatveganseat #plantbased #poweredbyplants #buddhabowl #fitfood #goodmoodfood #wholefoodplantbased #foodforthought #eatwholefoods #veganfitnessfood #foodisfuel #nourishbowl
Good morning! Happy Sunday!⠀ .⠀ I have been tinkering in the Kitchen experimenting with Christmas recipes. What are the flavours of Christmas for you? For me it is warming chai-like spices of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, mulled wine, hot chocolate, parsnips and Brussel sprouts! ⠀ .⠀ With the former flavours in mind, I cobbled up this Cinnamon, ginger, apple and goji oat bread (Hmm, Brussel sprout and parsnip bread might not be as tasty!). Do you think it is good enough to give as a present or for the Christmas table? ⠀ .⠀ I love how the bread is speckled with, cheerful sunset-orange goji berries and the crunchy oat streusel topping is sooo delicious! This oat bread is also healthy! It is enriched with hemp seeds and flaxseeds @LinwoodsFoods and organic coconutsugar @naturesheart uk available @ocado. You could also add a spot of protein powder @pulsinhq. The bread is also fat-free for those looking after their waistlines!⠀ .⠀ Why eat goji berries? They are: ⠀ *super-rich in antioxidants, (especially carotenoids and vitamin C), which boost the immune system, protecting against chronic disease. They also promote healthy skin and eyes. ⠀ *rich in protein.⠀ *contain many minerals including, zinc, iron, vitamin B2 and notably special sugars that protect the body against disease including cancer. ⠀ *Goji berries are also believed to help balance blood sugar levels, help in liver detoxification, and improve digestion and mood.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @veganfoodspot @hbloggerscom @WeAreVeganuary ‏⠀ @veganfoodshare @Alpro ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vegan #veganrecipes #veganvultures #iffym #feedfeedvegan #vegansofinstagram #jerf #healthyvegan #vegangains #veganstrong #nutritiousanddelicious #vegansnacks #veganbaking #nourishnotpunish #comfortfood #todayfood #fallrecipes #foodforfuel #healthyeats #cleaneats #veganfoodie #nutritiousanddelicious #vegancake #goodmoodfood #veganvultures #crueltyfree #eatwholefoods #norefinedsugar #glutenfreevegan #christmasbaking
Have you been Christmas shopping? How are you getting on?⠀ .⠀ I have been experimenting with home-made Christmas pressies. What do you think of these pink acai berry, beetroot, protein, energy balls? Quick to make and packed with goodness from chia seeds, raw dried goldenberries, Omega-3 Superpowder @naturesheartuk and optional protein powder @pulsinhq.⠀ Just blend, roll and pop into a pretty jar with ribbon!

Good evening! It's the weekend!!!! Any fun plans? ⠀ .⠀ Tonight marks the start of the start of the Christmas party season for me, plus I am going to a seminar on "Veganism, the facts and fiction'" which should be fun. I'll report back if there is something interesting! ⠀ .⠀ Dinner is therefore a quick supper or golden turmeric soup with a goji berry @LinwoodsFoods and goldenberry relish using dried goldenberries @naturesheartuk . This soup also has a helping of probiotic miso paste, which adds instant depth of flavour.⠀ .⠀ Why eat cauliflower?⠀ ⠀ *It may be one of the healthiest foods you can eat due to its high content of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory chemicals, which help to ward off cancer, heart disease, brain disorders and eye disorders like macular degeneration. ⠀ *Its high water and fibre content mean it can help weight loss. ⠀ * It also helps the liver detox and by reducing levels of oestrogen, it helps balance hormone levels, thus preventing autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue and ovarian cancer. Impressive stuff!⠀ .⠀ Full details of recipe is available at my blog.

Then decorate as desired!⠀ .⠀ Why eat mango? They are:⠀ *rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, which boosts immunity and prevent premature ageing. ⠀ *rich in magnesium and potassium so help lower blood pressure and promote effective nerve and muscle functioning. ⠀ *high in the soluble fibre pectin, which helps promote good digestion, reduce blood pressure and thereby promote a healthy heart and circulatory system and perhaps aid weight loss.⠀ ⠀ *high in vitamin B6 required for neurotransmitter production in the brain and promoting good mood and sleep.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Have a great day!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ .⠀ @naturesheartuk @pulsinhq @LinwoodsFoods @veganfoodspot @hbloggerscom @coconutmerchant @chiabiaseed⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #recipe #glutenfree #eatbetternotless #healthycooking #healthyvegan #foods4thought #whole30recipes #easymeals #eatgoodfeelgood #fitmeals #healthyeating #healthyrecipes #easyfood #holistichealth #healthyvegan #hclf #smoothielover #healthgoals #vegetarianrecipes #feedfeedvegan #letscookvegan #eatyourveggies #wellness #fitnessfood #healthyfoodporn #govegan #veganfortheanimals #colourfulfoods #thekitchn #veganstrong
