Winter Vegetables with Pineapple

This warm and comforting dish is a bit of a cheat meal but packed full of flavor and nutritious ingredients!

Ingredients: 
1 serving of goat cheese (or other cheese from your plan) 
1 serving of vegetables (such as cabbage, leeks, carrots) 
1/2-3/4 cup (150 mL) vegetable stock
1 pinch of turmeric
1 pinch of black sesame seeds
1 serving of fresh pineapple
Fresh herbs
Salt and pepper

Preparation: 
Set a small portion of goat cheese aside to eat separately. Wash and clean the vegetables and cut them into fine strips. Steam with vegetable stock and season to taste. Cut the pineapple into small pieces, add to vegetables and bring to the boil. Mash the goat cheese with a fork, add to the vegetables, mix and add freshly chopped herbs. Enjoy!

The Impressive Pineapple

The pineapple originally comes from South America and Hawaii but is now commonly grown in many warm and tropical regions. This fruit not only tastes delicious but also contains high amounts of bromelain, an enzyme which breaks down proteins. This enzyme can have phenomenal effects on the body: it inhibits blood coagulation, improves blood circulation, has an anti-inflammatory effect, lowers blood pressure and helps to break down deposits on the inner walls of the blood vessels. Note though that this enzyme is broken down when heated, so cooked pineapple will no longer contain active bromelain. In addition to bromelain, pineapples contain almost all essential vitamins as well as important minerals and trace elements. No matter how you enjoy pineapple, in sweet or savory dishes, this superfood is worth incorporating into your diet.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants that have the scent of the plant they are isolated from. Commonly used in aromatherapy and alternative medicine, these oils can easily be used at home to support your health and overall well-being. They can be used to manage stress and anxiety, improve sleep, decrease inflammation, and help with headaches and migraines. Although not meant for ingestion, essential oils can be applied directly to skin, used in a diffuser or bath, or during a massage.

The Journey Is the Reward

What are your New Year’s resolutions? Do you have plan for how to achieve them?

“In order to keep a good resolution, you need a plan”, knows Birgit Funfack, co-founder of Metabolic Balance. The formulation of personal goals should be well thought out and set for a realistic period. To see an unfeasible project fail makes all motivation disappear. It is better to follow reasonable paths. ” Wanting to lose 30 pounds in one year is realistic and therefore sustainable. However, if you want to make it in two weeks, you usually fall back into old eating habits after the first few days. In order to achieve one large goal try to include small goals along the way to help keep you motivated and on track! A sensible plan as well as faith in oneself are the keys to successfully reach the goals of a good resolution.
