Oat bran, Oats, Sunflower seeds, Almonds (If you havn’t heard about ‘Activating’ your almonds, read HERE), pumpkin seeds, wheatgerm, goji berries & sultanas (feel free to add as many nuts and dried fruits to the mix as you like, go nuts!!!)

Although i love quinoa i do find it a little bland, i like to make my a little bit zesty….
For the Quinoa: heat 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a deep pot. Add 1/4 cup chopped onion; stirring frequently for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Add 1 clove chopped garlic, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, a pinch of salt, 1/2 lime; juiced and zested and 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa. Cook for a minute or so until garlic and cumin is fragrant. Add 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil (if it isn’t already), then turn the heat to medium-low and let it simmer gently for 12-15 minutes or until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat, stir in 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro and let it sit, covered, for 5 minutes.
As i was saying, KALE is an amazing source of antioxidants and very high in protein, although it is very strong in taste and a little bitter. This smoothie is full of sweet sweet pineapple to even it out.
Mix 1 cup almond milk (if you are feeling up to it you can make your own like i did HERE), 1 cup kale, 1/2 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup diced pineapple, 1 banana and blend. I added 1 T FLAXSEED which is a source of OMEGA 3 and great for those who don’t eat a lot of fish. Makes 2 medium size glasses or one very large.
Sweet Potato: Cut half a large sweet potato into thin slices like chips, coat in a dash of Extra Virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon coriander, 1 teaspoon of parsley and lay flat in baking pan. Cook for 10-15 minutes turning to crisp both sides.
Lamb: Pretty easy this one; Put 1/2 cup of almonds in the food processor with 1 clove of garlic, shaved parmesan and freshly ground salt & pepper (If you made your own Almond milk like i did you can use the leftover dried out processed almonds as almond meal (See day 1) Dip 4 lamb chops in 1 egg white before crumbing in crushed almond mixture. When sweet potato is almost ready, cook lamb in an oiled pan for 5-10 mins until golden brown.
