Food that inspires

We love browsing the internet to see what lovely new food ideas and trends are about here is one of our favourites.

Olia Hercules is a cook of  Ukranian descent her food is exciting, her use of flavours and herbs makes you want to run to the kitchen and start cooking.This recipe is from her blog and we think everyone should make it. We stock quite a few of the ingredients listed.

Detox quinori and sunflower seed pesto, raw sunchokes, mushrooms, celery

Quinori, chervil and sunflower seed pesto and raw sunchokes

 

Quinori has been a recent revelation. It is a mixture of white and red quinoa, shards of raw chickpeas and brown rice. I have created a herby sunflower seed pesto to go with it.

I love combining ingredients that come from the same family – hence the raw Jerusalem artichoke slivers, that come from the sunflower family and are also called sunchokes, sunroots and earth apples. They have a delectable truffle flavour when cooked, and a fresh earthiness when eaten raw.

Pesto
100ml avocado oil
40g sunflower seeds, toasted
10g chervil
10g parsley
10g basil
5g mint
1 garlic clove, finely grated

Quinori
100g quinori
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
1/2 lemon, **juice only**
100g Jerusalem artichokes, scrubbed and shaved on a mandolin (they oxidise, so toss in lemon juice immediately)
100g chestnut mushrooms, thinly sliced
100g celery, thinly sliced

1. Cook the quinori  in boiling salted water 10 minutes, then drain and set aside.
2. To make the pesto, blitz the sunflower seeds with the herbs, reserving a few chervil leaves for garnish. Add grind of Himalayan salt, some pepper and garlic in a food processor. Then slowly start feeding the avocado oil until the pesto is smooth. Add lemon juice to taste and set aside.
3. Put some of the pesto through the warm quinori and serve with the artichoke, celery and mushroom slivers scattered on top.

New Products

qualifiednaturopath

 

We have a new range of products in Green Ginger by an English company called ‘Qualified Naturopath’ they stock a great selction of products including a fungal nail treatment which they have developed in their clinic. We also ordered in a few more things, read below to find out more.

 

Fungal nail treatment

Our 5 in 1 Anti-Microbial combines some of nature’s strongest defences against the microscopic organisms that can be so harmful to our health. Our multi layered approach to tackling such problems uses the natural properties of these 5 ingredients intensified in their combination.

Wild Garlic

A relative of garlic that naturally has antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, it also reduces blood pressure more than garlic and is used to treat fermentive dyspepsia, aid digestion, treat colic, wind and loss of appetite. It also has use when externally applied for treatment of arthritic or rheumatic joints. Wild garlic contains vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium and copper.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Known to fight bacterial infection so will stop the onset of colds and helps to eliminate candida. It will detox by stimulating cardiovascular circulation, helping to detoxify the liver, break up mucus and cleanse the lymph nodes. ACV also prevents indigestion, lowers blood sugar and and balances the body’s ph levels.

Colloidal Silver

The tiny particles of silver suspended in purified water act as a powerful anti-microbial agent, eliminating unwanted bacteria.

Iodine

This essential mineral removes harmful chemicals and radiation from the body while at the same time strengthening the immune system. It will also kill micro organisms such as fungus, bacteria and amoebas.

Oregano Oil

The natural anti-microbial properties mean it can be used to fight infection, getting rid of harmful organisms in the body. It stimulates good digestive processes without working against essential stomach and intestinal flora. Oregano oil is anti inflammatory, works as an anti viral by strengthening the body’s defences and as an anti parasitic, keeping away lice, bed bugs, mosquitoes and fleas and killing internal parasites such as intestinal worms.

 

Pure Ozonated coconut oil

 

Coconutoil

Ozonated Coconut Oil is made by trapping ozone, a form of oxygen, in coconut oil. This really is an extremely versatile substance. Our Coconut Oil is organic virgin oil and supplied in a re-useable glass jar.

 

Diatomaceous Earth  Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth is a naturally-created sedimentary mineral formed from the remains of aquatic unicellular shells and algae referred to as diatoms.

Diatoms are 30 million years of age, and were created when these microscopic algae-like plants died and continued to be compounded within the earth’s surface as skeletal remains. Our D.E. is sourced from fresh water.

These microorganisms, similar to molluscs, produce lime-carbonate and emit silica.

Researchers make reference to these clay-like, chalky remains as diatomite. Whenever we mine our planet, we uncover these remains as a thick whitened siliceous powder.

Zeolite is a mineral with a cage like structure which can trap molecules within it. Zeolites occur naturally but are also produced industrially on a large scale. As of July 2015, 229 unique zeolite frameworks have been identified, and over 40 naturally occurring zeolite frameworks are known. Our zeolite is entirely natural and unadulterated.This is the smallest particle size of food grade zeolite.

Magnesium Flakes

Magnesium is arguably one of the most forgotten minerals. This is markedly important as, up to 80 percent of people have low body magnesium levels..

The consequences of deficiency are significant, and are exacerbated by many pharmaceutical drugs.

Too few people get enough magnesium from their food. Calcium tends to be over used and consumed in large amounts. This can cause more harm than good, as it’s crucial to maintain a proper balance between these two essential minerals.

This product is mostly absorbed into tissues by adding it into the bath.

3. Stick to a regular routine so your body can regulate hunger hormones and mood fluctuations. Keep focused and calm when eating to improve digestion and to notice when you’re full!

4. Let your friends and family know so they can support you in reaching your end goal

5. Focus on your goal – remember healthy weight loss should be a gentle enjoyable jog in the park, not a race.

 

Terranova products

100% vegan, many of the botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods in Terranova products are either certified organic or ethically wildcrafted. The 90 acre certified organic herb farm is their primary botanical supplier, located in Oregon, surrounded by native forest.

Each crop has been nurtured in a pristine, chemical free environment and has been harvested at a stage when the plants have reached their peak levels of bioactive markers.

For those ingredients that are wildcrafted, highly skilled and experienced wildcrafters carefully collect the plants from areas which have not been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides.

In order to get the most out of nutritional supplementation it’s necessary to achieve an intense state of synergy in the body. Synergy occurs when an interaction between compounds produces effects that are greater than the combinded individual effects of each one. To provide its optimun effect each vitamin, mineral or any other nutrient must be efficiently absorbed, distributed, metabolised and utilised and must particpate in a wide array of synergistic interactions with enzymes, co-factors, other nutrients, etc. However , because factors such as genetics, diet, lifestyle, gender ,age and stress levels affect the body’s ability to generate a high level of synergy , the effectiveness of a supplement can vary significantly from person to person.

 

Each Terranova nutritional product is enhanced with its own synergistic complex of bontanicals and phytonutrient rich foods, called magnifood. Magnifood ingredients are combined in a  manner which enhances the body’s bio-chemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefit of the product’s vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant’s enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant’s original fresh chemistry ( as it was when the plant was harvested).

While Magnifood is scienfitically advanced innovation, its origins are deeply rooted in holistic principles. Within each magnifood complex the marraige between science and holism produces remarkable effects, effects which are powerfully active, delicately balalanced and intensely, profoundly synergistic.
