Cheese and onion mixed leaf salad

Serves 2/3 persons.

Chop up all of the following and add to a large mixing bowl:

1 small red onion

4 chives

1/2 a cucumber

3 handfuls of mixed leaves and herb salad mix. It can contain rocket, baby spinach, Swiss chard, parsley, radicchio and basil leaves.

Grate or slice 50g of Red Leicester cheese. (Omit to make it auto-immune friendly.)

5 tbsps of quinoa.

Toss the dry ingredients together.

The dressing makes the salad. For this one, make a balsamic vinaigrette by combining in a small jug:

3 capfuls of organic balsamic vinegar.

3 tbsps of extra virgin olive oil.

1/4 tsp pink salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

A touch of dried oregano.

Beat vigorously, like you would an egg. And once it thickens pour over the salad and toss together.

Enjoy a bowl as it is or add any protein on the side if you’re extra hungry.

Is there such a thing as super-food?

Dear Reader,
You will have noticed that I haven’t put many pictures of fruit and vegetables on my website. Albeit: I’ve pictures up of delicious desserts and flamboyant, fancy coffee!

Depending on the occasion, they all are superfoods! Fruit and veggies, cake and coffee. Super food can be subjective.

Yes. Of course wellness and well-being are all about eating whole foods first. The primary sources of nutrition that are always superfoods are those grown in the sun, soil and on trees; that have been made with the help of birds, butterflies and bees.

If you sign-up for coaching sessions for any of of the problems mentioned on the mind-map, natural superfoods are what you will be eating.
No doubt.

However food is medicine. The poison is in the dose. And we are more than just a body. Coaching through a Being-Well lens means knowing when to have your cake guilt-free, because I know how hard it is to make switches in your diet when you eat for health’s sake. Giving up on your daily biscuit at tea time can be depressing. It weighs on your mental health. It can even lead to a tantrum.

If you learn not to gratify your desires instantly, and know the occasions of when you can have creamy, dreamy pudding, then temptations won’t govern your mind. Our sessions together will help train your mind to be patient by recognising your triggers and eat with intention to heal.
