Healthy recipes are always a topic of conversation around the Mukti Organics office. We’re not just into skincare and creating amazing organic products to nurture your skin. We’re also into organics, healthy eating and all things natural and nutritious.
So — we did a roundup of some of our favourite healthy recipes for you to try. There are a couple from Mukti, herself a big fan of healthy eating and the rest are from some of our favourite health, food and environment blogs and websites.
Just get a load of these pics — bet your mouth is watering by the time you reach the end. Just click on the links to get the recipes. Enjoy!
1. Chia Lemon Jelly
This is from Gluten-Free, Grain-Free author Tania Hubbard. This drink helps revitalise the body and senses on a hot day, and is a super-hydrating, super-yummy drink to treat yourself to in winter, when your skin is feeling dry from cold air and indoor heating.
2. Mukti’s Coconut Chicken Soup
This simple, tasty soup is one of those healthy recipes to keep close by during winter, as it’s great for warding off colds and flu. Because it has a light, tropical flavour, it’s a nice summer soup, too. Click here for the recipe.
3. Banana Almond Smoothie with Flaxseeds
A healthy recipe for breakfast, snacks or dessert, this thick and sweet smoothie counteracts sugar cravings and gives you a big energy boost. It’s from vegetarian food blog Cookie and Kate.
4. Spicy Kale Chips
Kale is high in magnesium, calcium and antioxidants, contains an excellent supply of lutein (thought to help prevent macular degeneration) and is packed with iron. You can simply roast kale chips in salt and oil, but this recipe from The Raw Food Kitchen adds extra zing! You can store the chips in zip lock bags to take with you for a healthy snack during the day.
5. Mukti’s Favourite Green Smoothie
We blogged about our love for green smoothies here in April 2012. Nothing has changed. We still love them. They are such a quick and easy way to give your body a tonne of nutrients in an easily digestible form — and they help your skin glow! Click here for Mukti’s recipe.
6. Energy Salad with Goji Berries
How yummy does this look? Nutritious greens, creamy avo, sweet goji berries and Asian pear and a bit of crunch from the sunflower seeds make this one of the most delicious and healthy recipes you could have in your arsenal. Find the recipe here at MindBodyGreen.
7. Coconut Fudge Balls
These are quick, easy, high in protein, contain no added sugar and best of all — they’re super-yummy! Janella Purcell shared this recipe in her role as an ambassador for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, the Cancer Council’s major annual fundraiser.
8. Garden Breakfast Wrap
If you like a high-protein, substantial brekkie to get your day off to a good start, these wraps are tasty, light and packed with protein. If you’re gluten-intolerant, swap the flour tortilla for a gluten-free variety, or try nori seaweed sheets for something different. Find the recipe here at Organic Gardening.
9. Lime Quinoa Stir-Fry
Grain-free, gluten-free peeps will love this recipe. Quinoa is a lifesaver if you’re avoiding gluten and carbs, as it’s a high-protein seed that fills you up and is so versatile to cook with. The recipe comes from Kasey Wilson, who was interviewed by Jess Ainscough for her Wellness Warrior blog. Click this link and scroll to the bottom of the interview for the recipe.
