As you may be aware .. we have a very good friend of ours who is also a most fantastic chef…
And this most fabulous friend, after listening to me complain about how the flu has gone through my house and both my boys TWICE .. gave me a recipe that will clear your nose better than any vicks vapour drop and cleanse your gut with fresh omegas and wholesome vegetables.
So I said Thank You and sent my husband fishing!!
Cut slits in the sides of the fish, salt and pepper and nestle on a bed of Cabbage, with 1 lime cut into wedges, a stick of lemongrass (bruised), 2 cloves of garlic, a knob of ginger and some coriander and basil..
Wrap up and seal tight and pop in a preheated oven for 25-35 minutes on 120degrees.
Now get ready to make your red curry broth.
1 x small white onion diced
1 red capsicum diced
packet of Ma Ploy Red curry paste
400ml of coconut milk
2 kaffir lime leaves
1 lemongrass bruised
1 TBS of fish sauce
1TBS coconut sugar
1 TBS lime juice
Fry onions and capsicum till soft, add paste and fry for a further 30 seconds.
Add remaining ingredients bring to boil and simmer until at desired thickness.
Before serving chuck in some lovely fresh veggies, including carrots, green beans, sugar snap peas and cherry tomatoes.
Sprinkle with basil and serve with the steamed fish & some sticky rice.
Fat Loss Food Does Not Have To Be Bland!
In fact fat loss food is quite the opposite… Flavour is the key to delicious wholesome cooking.
You see most people lack flavour in their cooking and substitute with sugar, poor choices of fat (not the best options like those containing omega 6’s I.e frying ouil etc) and excess salt.
Now, most foods can be dressed up into flavoursome meals by adding herbs, spices, salsa’s, dressings etc. This is how we can turn quick easy barbecue’s, pan fried and grilled meats into delicious meals. In turn, this will reduce excess calories, as well as, foods that create inflammation and therefore illness.
Fat Loss Foods and Probiotics
Probiotic foods are great, but prebiotic foods might be even better at improving your gut health and all the other benefits that come with it.
“Prebiotics can be thought of as the food for probiotics,” says Melissa Majumdar, R.D., a senior bariatric dietitian at Brigham and Women’s Center for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery in Boston, MA.
Prebiotics differ from probiotics in that they’re not living microorganisms—they’re fermentable fibers that pass through your digestive system undigested then promote probiotic growth and activity. “Pre- means ‘before’ and signals that prebiotics are a prerequisite for bacteria,” she says. “Pro- means ‘for life,’ which suggests probiotics are live, active bacterial cultures.”
So today I have added for you my ‘fat loss food’ cheatsheet. This can be used to make awesome grilled and barbecue meats etc.
Now I love to cook but this cheat sheet is not mine. Instead it has been used by me to make many wonderful meals and I owe it all to my good friend, client and our local chef, Eloise Jury, AKA ‘Kitchen Macgyver’.
