Juice Recipes

* Keep it simple! Start off with Natalia’s Green Lemonade until you feel comfortable with juicing. The green flavour is hidden by adding the lemon. Then remove the apple and start playing with your taste buds. If needing the sweet taste, add Stevia which can be purchased from any Organic shops. Stevia doesn’t raise your sugar levels.

Stevia is a South American herb used as a natural sweetener for centuries. The leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant have a refreshing taste, zero glycemic index, zero calories and zero carbs. It is 25-30 times sweeter than sugar, and far more healthy!

Quick and Simple Bok Choy Soup – Louise Hay

Bok Choy Soup - Louise Hay Preparation time: 15 minutes Servings: 2–4

This soup is easy to make and surprisingly delicious! If you overindulged the day before, this is nice and easy on your digestive system. We’ve had clients double the recipe and eat this soup for an entire day if they’re feeling the need to gently cleanse their system.

• 2 baby bok choy (chopped) • 1 large or 2 small yellow summer squash (sliced) • 1 tsp. coriander (ground) • 1 tsp. fennel seeds • 1 tsp. curry powder • 1 tsp. Celtic sea salt • 2 tsp. ghee • 1 tsp. coconut oil

In a skillet, melt 1 tsp. ghee. Add spices and sauté for one minute. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Add bok choy and sea salt and simmer for 3 minutes, then add yellow squash and simmer for 2 more minutes.

Drain most of the water except for about 1″ (½ cup). With a hand blender or food processor, blend the ingredients until smooth. This makes a soup with a nice consistency (not too watery and not too thick).

At the end of cooking, add additional ghee and coconut oil to taste.


Pumpkin and Leek Soup

pumpkin & leek • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil • ½ red onion, finely sliced • 1 leek, chopped • 2 – 3 garlic clove, diced • ½ tsp. coriander flakes or bunch of fresh coriander • 1 tsp. ground cumin • ½ peeled pumpkin, diced • vegetable stock (cover pumpkin or water with 1Tbsp. vegetable bouillon) • Spike Seasoning • Salt & pepper to taste • Avocado, sliced (garnish, optional)

Add pumpkin and stock to saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Heat coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat, add onion and leek and cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened but not coloured. Add garlic and spices and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.

Allow pumpkin and leeks to cool slightly then blend together in batches (food processor), until your desired consistency. I like my soups quite chunky, add more liquid if needed.

Return soup to pan, and reheat gently.

Note: for added substance/garnish add a few sliced of avocado


ARE YOU MISSING POTATOES OR MASH PUDS?

Carrot & Swede Mash

mash • ½ swede • 4 carrots • Butter • 1 tsp. raw honey (if not yeasted) or stevia to taste • Salt & pepper to taste

Peel and chop swede and carrots.

Cook the swede and carrots in boiling salted water for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Drain well, then return to the pan. Put the pan back on a low heat on the hob for 1 minute to cook off any excess moisture.

Remove from the heat, mash well and stir in the butter knob butter and raw honey. Season with salt and pepper.

Tip: Great with sautéed vegetables or when missing mash potatoes. Remember to start the meal with a salad, to help sheppard the cooked meal through.


Baked Eggplant

egg plant • 1 eggplant • Coconut oil • ½ red onion, sliced • 2 garlic gloves, diced • ½ to 1 zucchini, cubed • 2 tomatoes, cubed • ¼ to ½ pepper (any colour), cubed • fresh herbs; basil, thyme, oregano or coriander • Goats Feta, cubed • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 200

Cut the eggplant in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the centre, leaving enough meat inside the skin so that it holds its shape. Baked upside down with a small amount of coconut oil. Also bake eggplant pulp at the same time. Season with sea salt & pepper. Bake until lightly tent with fork.

Prepare all other ingredients, combine together in a bowl, and then add baked eggplant pulp. Season with sea salt and pepper.

Turn eggplant up the right way, add a knob of butter in each half and fill with the above mixture.

Bake for another 10 min – 15 mins.

Note: You could sauté the mixture but I like my veggies semi cooked! For added flavour add ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes (soaked in water, drained and diced)

Bowen Therapy

bowen_therapy

The Bowen Technique helps the body remember how to heal itself.   The gentle, yet powerful Bowen moves send neurological impulses to the brain resulting in immediate responses of muscle relaxation and pain reduction.  The moves create energy surges.  Electrical impulses sent to the nervous system remind the body to regain normal movement in joints, muscles and tendons.   This helps relieve muscle spasms and increase blood and lymph flow.  The Bowen Technique affects the body primarily through the nervous and the bio-energetic systems, to bring it into a state of balance.

How does it work:

Through gentle moves over particular areas of muscles, ligaments, tendon and connective tissue, specific receptors in the body are stimulated that enable it to correct dysfunctions and restore balance.

The moves send out signals which:

  • stimulate energy flow
  • facilitate lymphatic drainage of toxins and waste
  • promote good circulation
  • release tension
  • increase mobility
  • encourage the body to relax, realign and heal itself

What to Expect:

A treatment involves a series of moves interrupted by essential waiting periods of about two minutes.  You may remain in light clothing, and I will ensure that you are warm and comfortable.  Some people doze off—it is very relaxing!

After your treatment I will give you guide lines that may include:

  • Basic nutritional guidance
  • Basic stretching programmes

Frequency:

This varies from person to person.  Most conditions respond in 2 to 4 treatments, however chronic conditions may require regular, long term sessions.

Maintenance sessions are very beneficial for keeping the body in balance and depending on lifestyle can be monthly, or more frequently if required.  I have clients who often have treatments for general relaxation and stress relief.

Bowen History:

Tom Bowen from Australia was the originator of the Bowen Technique in the 1960s and Russell Sturgess the founder of Fascial Kinetics Bowen in the 1990s.

Russell developed the theory that Bowen Therapy achieves its profound and long lasting effects by working with the fascia: the superficial and deep connective tissue in the body, which forms one continuous structure and is the medium through which communication between cells occurs.

Because of the nature of the design of fascia each treatment addresses the whole body, not just the area of pain or injury. Postural misalignment’s are released, and balance is restored.
