RECIPE TIPS
NUTRITION NOTES
Carrots are rich in carotenoids, which our bodies convert to vitamin A – vital for a healthy respiratory system. Ginger protects and heals the gut and eases stomach upsets and nausea.
IT'S ALL GOOD
Almonds are rich in vitamin E - eat with their skins intact, because flavonoids found in the skins more than double the potency. Nutmeg has anti-microbial properties; also enhances digestion and stimulates appetite.
