Nourishing Toasted Muesli

Posted on: October 10th, 2019 by Analeigh Brown No Comments

The prices charged for muesli are absolutely ridiculous, especially considering it’s relatively simple and cheap to make.

Most of the store-bought muesli contains some pretty undesirable contents that you should steer clear of wherever possible.

One of the nastiest in my opinion is vegetable oil, and trust me, it’s in close to every item you buy in a packet.

This may be overwhelming, but I’m hoping to show you (through the recipes I share) that there are some pretty simple alternatives that you can turn to when avoiding processed foods.

I thought I’d share my recipe with you all so that those who do like to start their day with muesli can do so at a cheaper cost to both their wallet and their health.

I would normally double the quantity for this recipe as my kids tend to inhale muesli!

I don’t often eat it, apart from the occasional dessert, but if the kids could, they would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

For anyone who is grain free, I will post a granola recipe in the coming weeks.

Ingredients:

 

Method:

  1. – Mix together all dry ingredients in your oven tray
  2. – In a saucepan add the coconut oil and honey. Heat over a low-medium heat stirring until combined and turned into a thin liquid. Don’t over heat as it can burn.
  3. – Pour the liquid over all the dry ingredients and give it a good stir.
  4. – Place in the oven and cook for roughly 30 mins stirring a few times during, keep an eye on it in case it over cooks as it can quickly change from golden to burnt.
  5. – Remove from oven when golden and enjoy!

Lazy Slow-Cooked Chicken Curry

Posted on: July 19th, 2019 by Analeigh Brown No Comments

I love cooking, but to be honest, I am a pretty lazy cook.

I rarely like cooking recipes that take a long time or have lots of ingredients.

Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook an elaborate meal on occasions, but most of the time I’m just looking for something nourishing and delicious that I can whip up with as little effort as possible.

I also refuse to use jars of pre-made sauces or spice mixes as 99% of the time they contain some questionable substances and I think most people would be surprised at how easy it is to make tasty flavours without using pre-made products.

This is a chicken curry recipe for people like me who want to spend as little time as possible but make a meal that satisfies. It doesn’t contain a whole heap of fancy expensive ingredients that cost an arm and a leg and you should be able to find all the ingredients in one shop.

If you don’t own a slow cooker, then I really suggest you invest in one, not only are they quite cheap to buy, but they rarely get it wrong. Slow cookers produce some of the most tender meats and the shortest preparation times possible. I’d say this meal takes 15-20 minutes preparation time. How often is that possible with a substantial meal?

Perfect for these chilly winter months, but I still enjoy curries throughout the year.

Enjoy!
