Superboost Salad

black sesame hearts

So I know summer is really the season of salads but with all this sun, we could be forgiven for thinking were just a breath away…

This is an easy, very quick meal bursting with energy giving foods.

Serves 2

• 3 hard boiled eggs
• 2 celery sticks
• 6 pieces marinated artichoke heart, roughly chopped
• 6 spring onions, finely chopped
• 1 tbsp sesame seeds

• 1tsp sesame oil
• juice of ½ lemon

Mix all the ingredients together and serve with a green salad.

Open Day Green Smoothie

green smoothie

We had a lovely Open Day at Balanced in Stockbridge today. Great to see the team and good to meet all the people popping in. Here is the recipe “green” Nutriblast I was making up.

  • handful spinach
  • 1/2 avocado
  • handful frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 apple
  • fresh lime
  • handful of sunflower seeds
  • fill to the Max line with half water and half coconut water.

This is full of magnesium and calcium from the spinach and sunflower seeds.  It has lots of bromelain to help decrease inflammation from pineapple, as well as tons of vitamin C.  The avocado and seeds have plenty of good fats and B6 for hormone balance, and the coconut water gives a good dose of electrolytes, so great if you’ve just done a Pilates class with one of our fabulous teachers.  Do add in the seeds as they also make it creamier and stop you getting a sugar rush from the fruit.
