3 tbsps of yoghurt (I used thick goats yoghurt, Greek Yoghurt would be equally as nice, but any will do)
1/2 a tin of chickpeas- rinse so they are not too salty
Small chunk of fresh ginger – finely diced
Handful of coriander, de-stalked and chopped
Handful of sultanas
Squeeze of lemon juice
Sprinkle of seasoning
Cut the potatoes into evenly sized chunks and place in a saucepan. Cover in a kettle of boiling water. Bring to boil. Turn down and boil for a further 10-12 minutes. Then leave to cool.
Place potato in a bowl, and add ginger, coriander, chickpeas, sultanas and lemon juice. Season. Add enough yoghurt just to coat the potatoes. This should be around 3 tbsps, but put in however much you think best.
This post is to let you know that my mum, administrator of “Live Grow Nourish Create”, has started up a new paleo food blog, called Primal Family Nourishment (which you can check out here)
Viv, administrator of Primal Family Nourishment says here in her about page: “This blog is to document our progress as we transition towards a “primal” way of eating emphasising fresh meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, and minimal high fat dairy.”
Chamomile grows all over the U.S.A and Europe. It’s a short plant with little gold-yellow flowers. It helps cure stomach-ache, indigestion, colic, nervousness, restlessness, constipation, cuts, bruises, burns, sore muscles, nappy rash, teething, insomnia and colds.
Things to Do with Your Chamomile:
Chamomile can be used in Herbal Teas. Drink a cup before bed to help you sleep better. Drink when new teeth are coming to help them grow more quickly. Drink a cup when your stomach is poorly from eating too many sweet food stuffs to ease the pain.
Chamomile can also be used in baths for similar reasons. Fill a small cloth bag with herbs (chamomile) and hang under the tap so that when the tap runs, it pushes the herbal essences into the bath water.
Chamomile is sometimes laid down like a path of plants. As you walk on the chamomile, a strong herbal fragrance is lifted into the air.
Most people believe it’s fat that makes us fat. It’s not; it’s sugar! Next time you’re at your local supermarket- think low sugar, not low fat. Low fat wouldn’t be anything bad, but when they take the healthy fats out, guess what they add in. Loads more sugar!!
This is a great program, that proves that it’s not fat thats the problem. For the good of the country, watch and share!
Mullein is a tall-stemmed herb with large fuzzy leaves and tiny yellow flowers. It can be used for coughs (especially whooping cough), earaches, the flu, colds, bleeding, diarrhea, frostbite, bronchitis, asthma, eczema, mumps and nerve pain. Try it in a tea or as a gargle or syrup. Mullein can also be used to make oils, eardrops and candles.
Did You Know?
If you wrap food in mullein leaves, it takes longer to spoil, or go off.
Lemon Balm is good for colds, flu, coughs, bruises, wounds, crying, depression and whinging and has no dodgy side effects like some bought medicines may have. Here are some instructions to make lemon balm tea.
Pick a large handful of fresh lemon balm leaves from your garden. Be careful not to pick too many from just one stem, but picking a few from each will help your balm grow more.
Put the lemon balm leaves into a teapot or jug.
Pour boiling water into the pot.
Cover and leave for 15 minutes.
Strain and pour into cups.
(Optional: ) Put some honey onto a spoon and stir into the cup of lemon balm tea. Sprinkle with cocoa.
For different reasons, you could use mint. It would have a different flavour, but the preperation would be basically the same.
