Liver Cleansing Smoothie

Liver cleansing smoothie

I created this recipe when I stopped taking the pill.

One of the things you are recommended to do when helping your body recover from the pill is to cleanse your liver. This  is because your liver is the detox organ for the body. It filters your blood and removes any non-beneficial substances such as pollutants, toxins and excess oestreogens. It has its work cut out for it when you stop taking the pill because it has to clear out all the excess hormones. I was overwhelmed about all the different foods

What I thought

This is a wholefood cookbook for use with the Thermomix. As far as I know, it is the best Thermomix cookbook for people with allergies. I am gluten intolerant and my sister is dairy intolerant, so whenever I need to make something to suit both of us I head straight to this book. Something I love about Quirky Cooking is that every recipe I make tastes delicious! It’s not just healthy food that tastes ok, it’s full of flavour! A common complaint with Thermomix cooking in general

Healthy Homemade Granola (thermomix recipe)

homemade healthy granola

Every healthy foodie has got their signature way of doing homemade granola, so I thought it was about time I shared mine! I love to eat granola with Greek yoghurt and either a grated apple, sliced banana or berries. I tend to find it’s not as filling as having eggs for breakfast but it’s a nice change when you feel like something different, and fantastic to bring when going on holidays where you won’t have the facilities to make a cooked breakfast.

I like to have this smoothie on a really hot day or after a workout. It’s beautifully refreshing and tastes absolutely delicious –  it’s like dessert in a glass! Thanks to the banana and maca powder, it’s quite energising, too.

If you don’t want to buy powdered peanut butter (available from iherb.com), you can use a tablespoon of normal

This smoothie was made with love for my lovely friend,  Christina. She is a hard-working Mum with three active children under five. Due to her busy lifestyle and health issues, she’s been struggling to gain weight for some time now. This smoothie is relatively high in calories, so would be suitable for

Brownlie-Special-Green-smoothie

This is my husband’s and my current favourite green smoothie. We were basically aiming to create the most nutrient-packed drink possible that was still drinkable! It’s not very sweet, so maybe halve the recipe the first time to see if you like it. We enjoy it as a refreshing and energising start to our day on the weekends, along with
