Whilst the cold weather tends to conjure up the desire for carbs and slow-cooked stews, such a change in diet isn’t great news for our waistlines. If you’re keen to keep it healthy, opt for a warm salad instead; these satisfying recipes are substantial enough to curb winter cravings, simply switch raw ingredients for cooked quinoa or roasted veg and enjoy the nutritional benefits of fresh food with a heartier feel.
Jamie Oliver's beef and Guinness stew with English mustard and pearl barley from Super Food Family Classics is warm, comforting and packed full of flavour. The benefit of skirt steak is that it’s leaner than many other cuts of beef, plus it’s high in the mineral zinc, which we need to keep our hair, skin and nails nice and healthy – triple win!
Al-Muwaffaq Al-Baghdadi said, “If you want to know the benefits of Talbeenah, then think of the benefits of barley water, especially if it is made of bran. There is nothing more beneficial than broth for one who eats a lot of barley. As for the one who eats a lot of wheat, the best thing for him when he is sick is barley broth.” #DarussalamPublishers #IslamicMedicine ~Amatullah♥
