Favourite Post Exercise Quick Dish!

 Fran’s Favourite Post Exercise recipe Takes 5 minutes!This is one of my favourite recipes after I have had a good workout. It gets all the senses going, tastes and looks fabulous, is awesome nutritionally and takes no time at all!

Zingy Stir Fry

You will need:

1 lime

1 small cup of water

1 red onion

2 garlic cloves

10 sprouts

4 sticks of celery

Splash of soy sauce

200g of soaked (or tinned) chickpeas

Sheet of any type of seaweed

Cut all the veggies including the onion and garlic into small pieces. Put into non stick wok with heat on medium and add the juice of half lime. Continue to stir and add extra juice of lime and water when starts to dry out. As the colours start to intensify add Chickpeas and small pieces of seaweed and continue to stir on high heat. Add splash of soy sauce and turn heat off.

Voila! This dish will knock your socks off.

Fran’s Tip: For extra digestive fire add teaspoon of grated ginger.

The Nutritional Value of Healthyfrans recipe

Seaweed Contains B-vitamin folate, and magnesium, and a good source of iron, calcium, and the B-vitamins riboflavin and pantothenic acid. In addition, seaweeds contain good amounts of lignans, plant compounds with cancer-protective properties. Seaweed is anti inflammatory, helps to calm the body, increases the thyroid function and excellent for menopausal symptoms.

Chickpeas a great source of calcium and fibre after a workout or for a low calorie meal at night. They are also a rich source of Zinc which plays an important role in the immune system, regulation of appetite, stress level, taste, smell and reproduction.

Limes are a wonderful anti arthritic food. They are so high in vitamin C and very alkalising which is needed after the build up of acid during exercise. They are also known to be a cooler for those who suffer from ‘hot headedness’ and anger.

Sprouts I know some of you hate them but give them a chance they really are a wonder food. Enough said!

I dare you to try it. Go on give your body a night off digesting unrecognisable foods and give it a go.

Let me know how you get on!

In health
