Roasted potatoes (or other root veggies)

The following recipe will rock using regular potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash or other seasonal root vegetables.

In small to moderate portions root vegetables are an awesome addition to the diet. Even the poor ‘spud’ isn’t as bad as it is made out to be:

Nettle Soup Take 3

Home-made Nettle Soup Take 3

By Andrea Cullen

May 15th 2014

So now that I am getting adventurous this is my third take on Nettle Soup. This time I placed a lot more focus on nettles as the main ingredient; however typically I have added in the kitchen sink of ingredients to make this jam-packed with nutrition…. After all why stop at just one vegetable when soup is your chance to get in a heap of veggies!

Nettles

More frugal foraged health food

By Andrea Cullen; April 30th 2014

So now that I have tried my Nettle Soup Take 1 I realise that these stinging beasties are not going to kill me from anaphylactic shock once cooked (funny because I already knew this; I have no idea from where the paranoia reigns) I am adding a greater quantity of nettles into my Nettle Soup Take 2. Both these recipes show you that nettles can be added pretty much into any vegetable soup recipe.

Ok I will admit I am a wimp when it comes to eating nettles. I have a ridiculous paranoid fear that I will die by asphyxiation if I eat these little nutrient bombs. And so despite knowing better I am treading cautiously for my first attempt at eating these nutrient powerhouse. Please also be warned that I have total recipe following ADHD and so the following recipe is another Andrea invention; my apologies in advance as quantities are rough estimates based on what I felt like chucking in!

Bone Broth for Healing

How do you do yours?

I wanted to share with you all the recipe for bone broth that I recommend to my clients. Bone broth is an amazing nourishing and healing food; especially for those on a gastrointestinal healing programme, recovering from illness, going through the wringer with food poisoning (add brown rice or quinoa to the broth), or if embarking on a nutrition bomb-packed detox (if detoxing aim to add some sea-weed to the mix).

healthy gut

Simply make a giant pot of the steaming healing liquid and enjoy often during the day.

Extra can safely be frozen in Pyrex dishes or glass jam jars and removed from the freezer the night before you plan on enjoying to permit the soup to defrost naturally.
