It's officially that time in this weird hazy period of December that we have had enough of the Christmas leftovers, we are done with the rich, salty meats, potatoes (jks, potatoes forever), and cheeses. We are ready to move on with our lives and nourish our bodies. Thanking them for their efforts during the December madness with some rainbow coloured nutrient dense meals.
While I love the process of planning the Christmas menus, cooking for the days leading up to lunches, the parcels of leftovers stacked in the fridge to be munched on for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the week that follows. I am ready to get back to wholesome basics, fuel the family with some nutritious meals and focus on regaining my strength for the month and year ahead.
I found a pot of our Super Green Soup in the fridge last night and it was JUST what the doctor ordered.
Created with onion, leek, celery, potato, garlic, spinach, peas and fennel - a delicious line-up of antioxidant and fibre rich veggies.
Our super green soup provides:
- a rich source of antioxidants for immune support,
- probiotic miso for gut-health benefits,
- fennel, a traditional galactogogue (supports milk production).
- It is rich in fibre, crucial for detoxification, promoting regular bowel motions, providing prebiotic fuel for the microbiome, producing anti-inflammatory compounds, supporting satiety, weight management and blood glucose regulation.
And it is perfectly paired with our Wholegrain Sourdough, cricket or Bridget Jones Diary.
