Creamy Tahini and Chickpea Buddha Bowl
1 handful kale
¼ of a whole broccoli
1 cup brown rice
1 sweet potato
1 cup tinned chickpeas
3 teaspoons tahini
Squeeze of lemon
½ teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Salt and pepper
- 1.) Wash the sweet potato, then chop into small pieces, place on a baking tray, and drizzle with coconut oil. Bake at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until well cooked. (keep the skin on the sweet potatoes for extra fibre and nutrients!)
- 2.) While the sweet potato is in the oven, boil and drain the rice, and steam the kale and broccoli.
- 3.) In a bowl, mix the maple syrup and paprika, then add the drained chickpeas and mix to coat them. Next, lay them on a baking tray and add to the oven for 10 minutes.
- 4.) Once all ingredients are cooked, assemble in a bowl, with the rice forming the base.
- 5.) Whisk together the tahini, lemon, and salt and pepper to taste. Add water or coconut oil to thin into a dressing consistency.
- 6.) Pour the tahini dressing over the bowl, serve, and enjoy!
Green Superfood Buddha Bowl
1 cup quinoa
½ cup tinned broad beans
1 handful tender stem broccoli
3 handfuls baby spinach
1 handful fresh mint
1 handful pumpkin seeds
Salt and pepper
- 1.) Slice the courgettes into thick slices, place on a baking tray, and drizzle with avocado oil, and salt and pepper. Bake at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
- 2.) Cook and drain the quinoa, and steam the broccoli.
- 3.) Baby spinach can be wilted, or left raw depending on your taste.
- 4.) Halve the avocado. With one half, slice into long thin slices. In a bowl, mash the other half and set aside.
- 5.) Use a blender or food processor to blend the mint leaves, or chop very finely. Mix this in with the mashed avocado, a drizzle of avocado oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
- 6.) Remove the courgettes from the oven. Use the quinoa as a base, and assemble the remaining ingredients around. Serve with a generous spoonful of the avocado-mint dressing and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
