  • Clean and Healthy Lasagna Recipe

    Clean and Healthy Lasagna Recipe
    Lasagna has to be my all-time favourite meals since I was a little girl. I cried my eyes out when I was diagnosed with Leaky Gut Syndrome, purely for the fact I couldn’t eat pasta everyday anymore!

    This is my FAVOURITE clean eating recipe of all-time! This is a way to enjoy one of your favourite dishes – guilt free! It’s a perfect option for families, or even a bachelor (have leftovers or freeze for later use!).

    Ingredients

    500g of lean beef/turkey/chicken mince 
 1x onion, chopped
    1x capsicum, chopped
    1x zucchini, grated
    1x carrot, grated
    4 mushrooms, chopped
    1x can crushed tomatoes
    1x tomato, chopped
    Fresh spinach/salad to serve
    Low fat cottage/ricotta cheese
    1/2 cup of low fat grated cheese
    Herbs of choice 
2-3 rye mountain bread wraps (depending on depth of baking tray and how many layers you want)
    1 tbsp coconut oil

    Method

    1. Heat coconut oil in a large fry pan and cook onions and capsicum until soft. Add mince and season with salt and pepper. Cook until brown.

    2. Add tinned tomatoes, tomato, grated carrot, zucchini and mushrooms. Bring to boil then simmer for 20-30 minutes.

    3. Set aside for 10 mins. Meanwhile preheat oven to 180°C and place 1 rye mountain bread on tray. Spoon meat evenly over, then dollop cottage/ricotta cheese on top, then place another wrap on top. Repeat this as many times as you need, then top the last layer with a wrap and sprinkle grated cheese over the top

    4. Bake for about 15 mins or until mountain bread edges are crisp and cheese has melted. Serve with salad or roast vegetables.

  • DIY Herb Garden Veggie Patch

    e[tooltip text=
    One of the most important things you can do for your skin is eat ORGANIC. One of the main causes of hormonal acne is toxin related. By eating organic produce, you are reducing the amount of toxins that enter your bloodstream when compared to consuming commercial produce that has been sprayed with pesticides.

    It can be expensive to buy organic produce in some areas, so why not grow your own? Try these amazing DIY pallet gardens that you can plant with all your favourite fruit, vegetables and herbs! These are great for low-space areas or apartments where you don’t have a lot of room for a complete veggie patch.

    What you’ll need:

    • Potting soil
    • Staple gun and lots of staples
    • Pallet(s)
    • Seeds
    • Landscaping paper

    Directions:

    1. Place your pallet on a solid working surface with the bottom of the pallet facing UP.

    2. Roll out your landscaping paper to cover the bottom and sides and cut to size.

    3. Pull tautly onto the pallet covering the bottom of the pallet and all sides. Staple into position, folding the paper into the corners neatly.

    4. When the landscaping paper is firmly stapled to the pallet on the bottom and all sides, turn over so the top is now facing up.

    5. Add your potting soil mix to the pallet until the area is full. Do not use normal garden soil for this as it may not drain properly. Potting soil is definitely best and is quite inexpensive for the area we are covering!

    6. Now for the fun part! Plant your seeds or plants as per the instructions on the seed packet.

    7. Water and enjoy the harvest!

    TIP: If you are short on space, you can create vertical pallets too! This is a great idea if you live in an apartment or somewhere with limited garden space.
