We Are What We Eat!

This means a healthy and balanced diet of healthy food helps the whole body – inside and out. The right foods allow us to feel great and look great with clear skin and healthy hair. 

If we take apples as an example, they contain so many valuable nutrients and trace elements that can bind and neutralize damaging substances in the body such as free radicals. This results in so many benefits such as strong and healthy connective tissue aka beautiful skin!

Try this easy recipe – for a different way to get your apple a day: apple and oat streusel with walnuts (this is a Phase 3 recipe)

Ingredients for 1 serving:
160 g of tart apple (for example Granny Smith)
30 g of rolled oats
15 g of butter (or ghee)
20 g of chopped walnuts
Spices: cinnamon, vanilla bean, lemon juice (optional), a pinch of salt

Preparation:
Peel the apple, cut into thin wedges, (drizzle with lemon juice) and place in a small greased ovenproof dish. Chop the nuts, add the oats and knead them together with the butter / ghee, salt, vanilla and cinnamon to form the streusel (crumble). Spread the streusel over the apple slices and bake at 150°C (300°F) for 20 to 30 minutes.

Drink your allotment of milk as the protein portion.

Mozzarella on Sourdough Rye Bread

Inspired by yesterday’s post about vegetables au gratin, when we talked about re-balancing … our gusto went to make fresh mozzarella cheese melted over cubed sourdough rye bread.

Ingredients:
1 slices of sourdough whole grain rye bread (25g)
1 portion of fresh mozzarella cheese (buffalo or cow)
Spices: salt, pepper, paprika, nutmeg, fresh or dried marjoram / oregano

Preparation:IMG_6224
Since it is easier to eat after the cheese is wonderfully melted, it makes it easier to eat if you cube the sourdough rye bread. Place on a low-rim bowl, put in toaster oven and toast for 4-7 min. Take bowl out and turn bread over to have it nicely toasted also on the other side, repeat. Take bowl out, place the sliced mozzarella slices on top of the sourdough bread cubes. Spice to taste and toast for 7-15 min.IMG_6225
