  • Haggis dinner! 😋
.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿Roasted veg (onion squash, red onion, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, green lentils) soup, topped with organic haggis fried in ghee with shredded Brussels sprouts and chestnuts.
.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿Haggis is made with lamb and beef offal (liver, heart and kidney), mutton meat, onions and oatmeal. Due to its high offal content, it's packed full of protein and many vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin A, B12, iron, zinc, selenium, as well as CoQ10 and collagen.
.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿My haggis came from Peelham Farm via @abelandcole and contains oatmeal, which is not gluten-free (most probably because it's been processed in a factory that also processes gluten containing grains) but there are GF versions of haggis in the market too.
.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿We loved this meal, it was very tasty and very filling. I will be having some of the leftover topping for breakfast.
.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿Have you tried haggis? If you live in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 does it make a regular appearance on your plate?

  • This made my day: ❤️❤️❤️ After my self-care session today (an amazing facial with natural Tropic skincare products) I gave my lovely beautician Parminder (Revitali5e Beauty in Bracknell) some of my home made healthy treats. She really loved them and said 'don't pay me, make me some of these instead'. 😍😍 So now I've got an order from her to make two types of healthy treats for her and she took home all that was left on the plate. 😁

Providing a service doesn't always have to mean that money needs to change hands! 😊

  • Are you including bitter flavours in your diet? And why should you? 🥒Bitter foods are very useful for our bodies, due to the polyphenols and other plant chemicals they contain. 🥒These bitter compounds support digestion, by stimulating digestive enzyme and bile flow, and they also aid liver function. 🥒Polyphenols are potent antioxidants so they may protect against heart disease and cancer. 🥒Polyphenols are what the gut microbes like to munch on, so they help these friendly bugs do their important jobs better. 🥒Bitter flavours help reduce appetite and balance blood sugar. Eating bitter foods is a great way of reducing sugar cravings and re-educating your taste buds to be less reliant on sweet tastes. 🥒Most bitter foods are also rich sources of fibre, vitamins and minerals. 🥒So have I convinced you to start enjoying bitter foods more often? There is a lot of different foods to choose from: bitter gourd/melon (or karela as it's called in India, pictured here), green leafy and brassica vegetables, e.g. rocket, watercress, kale, radish, turnip greens, radicchio/chicory..., citrus peel, green tea and coffee, dark chocolate, to name but a few. 🥒Tonight was a curry night for us. I made a slow cooker lamb neck and aubergine curry (swipe) yesterday (curry is always best the next day!!), that I served tonight with some karela curry and Basmati rice.
Karela is prob one of the most bitter foods available, but with some clever cooking it's actually very tasty. My tip is to use something sweet to balance the flavours. Tonight I used one very ripe sharon fruit, chopped and mixed in at the end of cooking. I cooked the thinly sliced karela until soft with red onion, chopped garlic, grated ginger & turmeric, curry leaves and various spices. I was very happy how it turned out. 😊
  • My green breakfast.

Blended 1/2 avocado, 3 duck egg yolks, a small bunch of coriander, chopped, a splash of coconut milk, kelp powder and celery salt, then fried it in olive oil mixed with little butter. Topped with sautéed shiitake mushrooms and cavolo nero kale.

Very creamy and filling. 😋

What was on your plate this morning? Did you have breakfast or are your skipping it, perhaps intermittent fasting?

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  • Lunch.

I've upped my intake of seafood recently, particularly oily fish, fish roe and fish liver.

I aim to get a good amount of DHA (a type of fish oil, crucial for brain health), in phospholipid form, from my diet, and dietary sources like fish and seafood contain this form. Most fish oil supplements contain DHA in either triglyceride or ethyl ester form and none in the phospholipid form.

If you want to know why I'm concentrating on getting more of the phospholipid DHA, you need to keep an eye out for a blog post, coming soon.

Today, I had a very simple lunch:
Scallop roes (or corals), sautéed in butter and garlic and served on a bed of spinach leaves and avocado. I drizzled over the garlicky butter from the pan and added a spritz of lime juice and a good glug of EVOO.

Recommended by Emma @paleoathome, I'm now getting my fish roes and livers from the @thefishsocietyeu.
