Recipe of the Month - September
Roma tomato, micro greens and pork
This recipe is one which ticks all the boxes to make a complete meal. Starting with the quality whole grains your body is provided by selecting Corn Thins™ products. As a source of prebiotic fibre Corn Thins™ slices keep the good bacteria in your gut healthy which ultimately leads to a healthy body. Did you know that around 90% of your serotonin (happy hormone) is made in your gut? By feeding your gut with prebiotic fibre you are ensuring a good mood too.
Pork selected from the deli is a good choice for a lean protein. With animal-based haem iron needed for an optimal immune system as well as ensuring you have good energy levels as iron is needed to transport oxygen around your body. Protein found in pork helps make and repair all the cells in your body as well as adding an additional fullness factor to this meal.
Tomatoes add an array of health benefits from fibre to antioxidants like lycopene. Lycopene helps to keep your heart and prostate (for the gentlemen) healthy as well as reducing your risk of certain cancers. Corn which is not processed is a vegetable and like the processed whole grains in Corn Thins™products provides lutein and zeaxanthin. These are carotenoids which help to keep your eyes healthy and may prevent macular degeneration.
Microgreens are small but give a mighty nutrition punch. This includes providing your body with potassium needed for healthy blood pressure, magnesium which regulates your muscle contractions and phosphorous needed to keep your bones and teeth strong. They are also a good source of vitamin A needed for optimal immune function and folate required for normal DNA synthesis and repair. This is a recipe to add to your week which will satisfy your taste buds and leave your body buzzing with feelings of health.
