40 Days to a Better You
SUPER Saturdays are a great time to enjoy healthy foods and participate in fun physical activities with family and friends. Many times you can find healthy foods and fun physical activities right in your own back yard.
In our previous post we introduced a Super Salad that revitalized the body and provided key nutrients needed to keep the mind, body, and spirit in perfect harmony and balance.
"And God said, Behold,
I have given you every herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth,
and every tree,
in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;
to you it shall be for meat."
Todays Vegan meal is prepared by our own professional Chef Janine Brown. Janine prepared a perfect Vegan meal with delicious sweet potatoes and white beans full of nutritious ingredients.
2 medium sweet potatoes
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 large onion
1 bunch of fresh coriander
1 fresh red chilli
2 red peppers
1 yellow pepper
1 x 400 g tin of cannellini beans
1 x 400 g tin of tomatoes
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4.
Peel and chop the sweet potato, place in a roasting tray, then toss with 1 tablespoon of oil and a pinch each of the cinnamon, cumin and paprika.
Spread out in an even layer, then roast in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
Peel and roughly chop the onion. Pick the coriander leaves, then finely chop the stalks. Roughly chop the chilli, then deseed and chop the peppers.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan, then add the onion, coriander stalks, chilli and peppers along with the remaining spices.
Cook over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring regularly.
Add the cannellini beans with their liquid, and the tinned tomatoes. Stir, adding a splash of water to loosen, if needed. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Stir in the sweet potatoes along with most of the coriander leaves. Season to taste and top with the rest of the coriander leaves. Serve over cooked rice with some guacamole on the side, if you like.
It's always special when a fellow church family member shares their fitness, nutrition, health & wellness tips, and professional knowledge with other members to assist with keeping our church family healthy. If you have any healthy recipes please feel free to share and invite friends, and family to join us on our "40 Days to a Better You" journey. Until tomorrow. Bon Appetite!
