Health Benefit Checklist:

  • Immune Boosting

  • Aids weight loss

  • Circulation boosting

I made this today during my hour lunch break. It took me 20 minutes and it was absolutely delicious. It’s the perfect warmer for this drastic change of temperature we’re experiencing in the UK right now and may help your body constitution to adjust and reduce the chance of getting ill.

It contains tender-stem broccoli which scientists have discovered has more cancer preventing glucosilonates than regular broccoli and is easier to digest. It also contains chillies, which aid circulation and warm the body, lower the risk of cancer, help clear congestion, reduce the sensation of pain and reduce inflammation and oyster mushrooms which are known to have immune boosting and anti-bacterial properties.

Almonds add essential good fats and minerals such as magnesium which can help reduce migraines, muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. The fats in cashews may actually help to reduce the chance of heart disease as they contain similar fats to those found in olive oil.
The spices that have been added aid digestion greatly, allowing more of these delicious nutrients to be absorbed.
