Spicy egg fried cauli “rice” with avocado

This faux egg fried “rice” dish is such a good way to sneak some cauliflower into your meals while at the same time reducing your intake of white rice/refined white carbs in favour of a higher fibre option.
The spices, creamy avocado and eggs really add flavour to this dish so don’t worry about any weird cauliflower taste (because let’s face it who likes bland cauliflower?), honestly, this is one of my favourite ways to consume cauli (and it’s one of my most hated veg!)
Cauli haters just try this dish ONCE just to see how tasty it can be, then thank me after lol!

Tip
I cannot stress enough how important the spices are here, plus a good hot sauce really lifts it, don’t leave them out, especially the ginger as it’s what adds flavour, the tamari/soy sauce adds lovely salty umami flavours too so I urge you to follow the recipe closely as if you don’t it’s basically plain cauliflower. The avocado really compliments this well too and bulks out the meal so please also have a ripe one handy if you plan to make this.

Heart healthy red velvet beetroot pancakes

Keep your loved one healthy and happy this Valentine’s day with these beetroot pancakes that are good for the heart (and liver) plus they contain lots of fibre and antioxidants too. Oh and lets not forget yummy as well!

Home

Beets are great for the heart but also provide great support to the liver thanks to the antioxidant betalain and the ability to form nitrates, it can aid blood pressure and liver health. The oats in this recipe pack a good fibre hit (including soluble fibre that forms a gel in your gut and can absorb bad cholesterol) and the cacao gives a chocolate taste alongside magnesium and antioxidants without any refined sugar. A great breakfast for anyone to wake up to.

Beet cheat
Using vac pack beets may seem like a cheat but this method actually locks in and doubles the level of antioxidants compared to most other standard cooking methods so don’t feel guilty about the lack of effort cooking it, yay!

packed with fibre

I’ve also given options below for a sugar free version for anyone who needs it. I prefer Natvia granulated and liquid stevia as they don’t cause me any digestive upset like most other options do but choose whichever options work for you.

Supergreen “Hulk” dip

I threw together this dip in a rush one evening and couldn’t get over just how good it tasted!!
I promise it tastes waaaay better than it looks, the peas are mildly sweet, the avocado gives creaminess and the lemon and garlic are strong flavours which work really well together.

I love the deep green colour it has which comes from the spirulina powder and is why I called it the “Hulk” dip, this is also probably a good thing to call it for a chance that kids will eat it haha.
You can use it as a healthy dip or spread it on oatcakes or some sourdough toast, move over smashed avo!

It’s actually so delicious!

Benefits
There’s loads of benefits to this dip (aside from flavour), to begin, it’s great for immunity because of the vitamin C rich lemon juice, the raw garlic and cayenne pepper. there’s B vitamins in the peas, avocado and spirulina which are great for energy and the good fats and lemon juice are good for skin too.
As I mentioned in my recipe for banana PB spirulina flapjacks, lots of people buy ingredients like spirulina and don’t know how to use it so this is another one to help you use it up, plus the flavour is covered completely by the dominant garlic & lemon.
