how’s the school holiday feeding frenzy going?! non stop, right?! 😩 we know it’s easy to just keep offering quick, packaged and not so wholesome snacks, but the reality is this just won’t fill them up or do them any good...🙅🏻♀️ you can still keep it simple, get more good stuff in, they will be satisfied and so much better for it 👊🏼 we know veg is the hardest, so you just need to think outside the box •
💡top veg with a good quality organic butter •
💡 use some celtic sea salt •
💡 try some different veg and some different ways of preparing them •
💡 quite simply...make those veg taste good…•
one favourite of our kids is this mexican corn 🌽🤤 cook the corn cobs quickly til cooked through - pop into serving bowl, add some organic butter, a sprinkle of finely grated parmesan cheese, a dash of paprika, white pepper and sea salt 👍🏼•
see if they can resist this one 😉❤️#mexicancorn#sshkitchen#sshealth#wholesomefood#eatmoreveggies

🍃leftovers? 🍃we are heading away and are trying to run our fridge down and we hate waste.... so, what to do when you don’t have time to eat it all? throw it away?!? please don’t!!! •
ok, here’s what we do:
🥦cook up a big vege frittata, throwing in whatever we have left;
🥦chop up all leftover fruit and veg and pop in ziplock bags in the freezer for smoothies when we get back; or 🥦cook up a big vege soup and if no time to eat it - freeze it for a bowl of deliciousness when you get back 😉
so, please don’t add to the enormous amount of food that is regularly wasted. spend a quick minute and make good use of your fresh food before you leave for a fabulous holiday!! and, no waste. win-win 💕💕#waronwaste#sshkitchen#sshealth
✨it’s so important to always be trying to balance the body. when it’s warm outside, we need to try and cool the body down .... think more raw food and salads. likewise when it’s cold out, the body needs warmth. we live by our endless cups of tea, slow cooker and soups throughout winter - we just quite literally transfer our salad addiction to soups 😳🙊
we have some recipes on our website, but a good soup basically follows a pretty simple formula....
🥦start with a chopped onion & garlic and gently sauté with some ghee, organic butter, olive or coconut oil; 🥦next add in whatever veg you want. we love sweet potato & pumpkin; try our broccoli & green pea from previous post; cauliflower; or just throw in all the veg to clean out the crisper and give you a delicious and power packed bowl of goodness.
🥦toss till coated in oil and slightly cooked.
🥦add stock/ broth (veg or chicken are mildest) or just water to cover veg.
🥦bring to the boil, then immediately return to a gentle simmer. 🥦add in some legumes to add a little protein and to boost the nutrients and fiber- we love chick peas, red lentils or white beans.
🥦once veg are all cooked through, blend with a stick blender or pop in food processor and blend to your desired consistency. 🥦season with sea salt & pepper.
🥦top it with a drizzle of olive oil, some cooked grains (think quinoa, brown rice or pearl barley), fresh herbs, mixed seeds & nuts, a dollop of cream or yoghurt of choice. 🥦serve it with or without a big piece of crunchy sour dough toast (that is how we got our kids into soups - big piece of yummy toast to dip in the soup.... 😋). if you can get your kids into soups - they are an excellent snack or filler- we have soups as snacks, for afternoon tea, after dinner if anyone is still hungry... and just think about the vegetables content. yassssss, this is called ‘winning’ in #mumlife 😜🤣
🥦then, simply enjoy! #wintersoup#sshkitchen#sshealth
🍃while we are meat lovers from way back - we have become more conscious in our food choices in recent years. •
🍃eating a plant based diet has become so much more of a regular occurrence and we are loving it! •
🍃not huge fans of vegetables? well, it’s time to change your relationship status with these nutritional powerhouses. veges are where nearly all the good stuff lies... vitamins, minerals, fiber, energy... you don’t need to be giving up any of the stuff that you love, either, if you’re not ready - just start adding in some extra veg each day.
🍃start by adding a cup a day of veg for the next week and see where that takes you... both for you and your family. it is equally important that kids get most of their nutrients from vegetables too. check out the recipes on our website for some ideas www.soulsisterhealth.com.au or search #sshkitchen for some inspo! vegetables are definitely the ‘new black’ #sshealth
🍃leftovers for lunch🍃we did a bit of entertaining over the weekend and apart from spending some time with our beautiful family & friends💕 the other bonus is a fridge full of leftovers 😜
today’s lunch takes full advantage of that! @mountainbreadau topped with slow cooked lamb (recipe on website); leafy greens; homemade slaw; avocado and some freshly roasted pumpkin & beets. all topped with a drizzle of our powerhouse green dressing (recipe on website). all kinds of yum 😋 #leftoversforlunch#sshealth#sshkitchen
winter to us, means trying to warm things up - to balance things out - so we tend to have less raw vegetables & salads and more slow cooked meals and soups, particularly at nighttime.
this bowl of green goodness not only tastes amazing, but offers so much by way of the good stuff. give it a try this weekend and let us know what you think? * 1 tbsp olive oil
* 1 brown onion, chopped
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 potato, peeled and chopped
* 3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
* 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
* 2 cups frozen green peas
* 1 cup coconut cream (or regular cream)
gently cook the onion and garlic in the oil on low heat, til softened. throw everything else in. cook until vegetables are cooked through and then blend up to desired consistency. if the soup is a little thick, just add a little more stock or water. serve with some extra cream or yoghurt drizzled on top. some mixed seeds & nuts (we used our tamari seed mix) and if desired, a big crusty piece of bread! enjoy. #sshkitchen#greensoup#sshealth

What you eat impacts each of the ten major systems of your body that work in concert to maintain your health. from your digestive system, to your circulation, your nervous system, your respiratory system, your muscles & bones, your hormones, your reproductive system to the state of your skin! •
these systems rely on a nutritious diet to supply them with the nutrients they need for optimum performance🤔without the proper nutrients, these systems simply cannot function optimally. nutrients come from real food🥦🍍🥑🍓they don’t come from a factory. your body needs you to eat real food, not food-like substances. the very best ‘medicine’ for your body is the food that you eat. let’s start there, not in the pharmacy. •
we will be adding some of our favorite winter ‘warming’ recipes this week, so that you can really nurture that beautiful body of yours this winter. but, just remember that your body is not a miracle worker - it can only work with what you feed it.... make sure that you are giving it the best fuel possible. #foodismedicine#foodasmedicine#sshkitchen#sshealth
