GOOD FOOD, HEALTHY HABITS

It's no secret that I have chronic gastritis, a condition that causes the lining of my stomach to become easily irritated. I've had it for three years now and it affects what I eat on a daily basis.

For me the importance of finding food that I can eat, that won't irritate my stomach but in fact help to heal it, is a big focus!

DID YOU KNOW ROUGHLY 25% - 30% OF THE POPULATION SUFFER FROM SOME SORT OF GUT RELATED PROBLEM.

Whether caused by external factors or the lifestyle choices we make, it is so important to eat and drink what helps us to heal. A combat if you will, against the stressors of life and what we consume.

I've recently come across a few items I wanted to share with you, that have helped to reduce inflammation in my body, improve digestive efficiency and support my gut health.

THE GREEN ST REVIEW

JAMU JAMU - TUMERIC TONIC

I found this drink a great accompaniment to my main meals, mostly lunch and dinner. Kombucha which is often associated with gut health is often too sugary or bubbly for my gut, whereas this blend of turmeric, fresh ginger, lemongrass, Jujube berries, Navel oranges, black pepper, cassia bark and coconut sugar, has a much gentler effect on my stomach.

Not too bubbly as to avoid irritating the stomach lining (but has a little sparkle), a cold glass of Jamu Jamu was probably my favourite item!

LIVING COCONUT - COCONUT KEFFIR MYLK

One of the limitations to having my gut issue, I have to avoid dairy. Even yogurt upsets my stomach!

I was very excited to get my hands on the Coconut Keffir, seeing as I LOVE coconut and need as many healthy Probiotics as I can get, this was great option. I had a small glass every morning before breakfast. It was gentle on my stomach and light to drink. Tasty too!

GINGER & TUMERIC KRAUT

I straight up love Saurkraut! Specially since I can't enjoy the usual condiments due to high acidity or spice, kraut is the perfect option for me. It's even great for adding digestion.

What I loved about the G&T Kraut was how subtle the flavours where. It had just enough Ginger without being spicy. And the two main ingredients (Ginger and Tumeric if you haven't guessed it!) are know for being anti-inflammatory foods, perfect for settling and healing the gut lining. Literally hitting two birds with one stone! I had it with almost every meal!

If you're looking to improve gut health or struggling with some sort of long term digestive complication and you're looking for something gentle, I highly recommend trying out some of these products.

SUSHI BOWL RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

*Anything you like, including 

  • 1/2 Cup Brown Rice
  • Pan Fried Salmon (Caned fish if you're feeling cheap)
  • 1 Poached Egg
  • 1/2 Avocado Cubed
  • !/2 Cucumber Cubed OR Julienne

OPTIONS I LIKE -

  • Blanched Broccolini
  • 1/2 Grated Carrot
  • Handful of Alfalfa

METHOD

* I try to keep my version of a Sushi Bowl relatively High Alkaline, using Saurkraut instead of pickled ginger and avoiding Toms and Capsicums for example. But you can mix it up if you like!

  1. Heat/cook your Rice.
  2. Prep all other items on the list - Avo, Cucumber, Carrot, Broc, Alfalfa.
  3. Assemble your Wasabi Mayo - Mayo/Wasabi mixed in a bowl, to your tasting? I only like a small zip of flavour.
  4. Start to cook the fish and poach the egg while you wait to flip.
  5. The Egg is best runny so catch it before it overcooks!
  6. Once your fish is cooked, assemble on the plate as above, put a few drops of Wasabi Mayo on the plate and...

ENJOY!

The GSK CIY Burger Blog

 
DSC_9057.jpg
 

Burgers often get a bad wrap….

But at Green St we love a good burger!

We believe that you can put a healthy & delicious twist on even the most traditional, and unhealthy, meals.

  • GSK ginger + turmeric kraut
  • Thinly sliced continental cucumber

Method

Roasted Pumpkin (basic method)

  • Slice your favourite type of pumpkin "we use Jap or Kent" into chunky 1cm pieces (leave skin on if you prefer is very tasty roasted)

  • Preheat your oven to around 200 degrees ready for pumpkin, place the pumpkin on a roasting tray with baking paper & roast in the oven for around 20-25 minutes or until just tender.
  • Once the pumpkin is tender preheat the grill (on your oven) and place pumpkin under the grill. Allow pumpkin too brown and blister (should take only 1-2 minutes)
  • Allow to cool slightly and season again with virgin oil, sea salt and lemon zest.

Grilled Chicken

  • There are many different ways of cooking chicken for a burger but here is a good one to try... 
  • Grab your chicken tenders, place some cling wrap on your chopping board and put chicken tenders on top evenly spaced and then place more cling wrap over the top. Lightly bash with a meat mallet, flattening the tenders slightly.
  • In a wide flat bowl place some flour (we use @rawearthproduce lupin flour which is gluten free, high protein and fibre) and season with sea salt and white pepper.
  • Lightly dust chicken tenders in flour mixture and set aside.
  • In a thick-based pan preheat some virgin oil (medium heat and oil should just cover the base of the pan) and place chicken tenders into gently cook. This should take around 2 minutes each side.
  • Once the chicken has just cooked, place a knob of butter in the pan and turn off the heat.
  •  As the butter melts spoon it over the chicken allow to cool.

Gut Health & Cellular Energy

 
 

At Green St we love to work with influential & inspirational people; individuals & groups who are passionate about their work within the health, exercise & wellness space.

 Last week we sent some of our favourite fermented product to Michelle Drielsma from Sydney Strength Conditioning. Michelle is an Exercise Physiologist & strength coach who loves the ocean and is passionate about gut health.

"I recently tested out Australian-made Green Street Kitchen’s fermented kimchi, tonic and fermented hot sauce. What I love about these products are their taste and quality. Green St Kitchen products are fermented the wild way, meaning there is no starter culture used to initiate the fermentation process. The ingredients are exactly what is listed on the side of the jar – for example cabbage/vegetables, salt, flavoursome ingredients and time. Ferments aid digestion and only small amounts are desired with each meal. I would make a salad of grated carrot, beetroot, ginger, chopped cucumber, sheep cheese, pepitas, 2 soft boiled eggs, olive oil and sea salt, topping it off with a tablespoon of kimchi. Tasty and epic.

 “All disease begins in the gut.” — Hippocrates.

Hippocrates was not 100% correct with regards to all diseases but is fairly accurate for most chronic metabolic diseases.

There exists an intimate connection between your gut health and your overall health and wellbeing, so intimate that the gut is now being referred to as the second brain. Your gut and brain are physically and emotionally connected.

Only about 10% of the cells in the human body are human. The other 90% of the cells in your body belong to other living creatures; these are single celled microbes living in the human gut. The human gut comprises about 34,000+ species of microbes and in a healthy person, the beneficial microbes outnumber the pathogenic microbes by 4:1.

Now to really add a can of helminths, there is a great deal of literature that supports a high sugar/high fat diet for cellular energy and nourishment. Nutrition is a funny one and many professionals will have alternative views depending on which side of the physiology coin they are looking from. There seems to be hundreds of symptoms relating to “gut issues”, but it is worth looking at the origin first – if the cells aren’t fueled properly then you can guarantee problems assimilating and digesting foods.

Without proper digestion, you can’t have good health, no matter what you are eating. Your health is the summation of the foods your body is capable of digesting, not “what you eat”. Anytime you eat food that exceeds your body’s ability to digest, those foods end up working against you.

 
P8240370.jpg
 
  • Good healthy gut bacteria:
  • Support the immune system
  • Help you create vitamins, absorb vitamins & minerals
  • Regulate hormones
  • Digest and metabolise your food
  • Get rid of toxins
  • Make you calm, happy and focussed
  • Support cellular energy and health
  • How to work towards having good healthy gut bacteria:
  • Include pre- and probiotic foods such as fermented foods and beverages.
  • Meditation & exercise
  • Drinking plenty of clean mineralised water
  • Remove highly processed, non-foods
  • Avoid foods that you are sensitive to; when you eat foods that you are allergic or sensitive to, they activate your stress response which reduces your digestive juices and lessens both your absorption and digestion of nutrients.

GSK CIY Soft Poached Eggs & Kimchi

 
P5170479 2-2.jpg
 

This light & healthy recipe is quick and great for breakfast or a snack at any time of the day.

INGRIDIENTS

  • Free Range Eggs

  • We have used a sprouted seed bread by @katssnacks but you can use any bread you like (we suggest using a quality sourdough or making your own sprouted bread).

  • Your favourite GSK kimchi or kraut (we have used wakame + pickled radish)

  • Fresh flat leaf parsley and/or coriander

  • Sea salt & cracked black pepper

  • Extra virgin olive oil

We all know how to poach an egg, but just in case you have forgotten, here is a brief lesson;

METHOD: POACHING EGGS

  1. Bring some water to a simmer, add a table spoon of vinegar (white is best).

  2. Crack your eggs separately into small bowls ready for poaching.

  3. Once water is simmering (not vigorously boiling) grab a spoon and start to stir to create a gentle whirlpool.

  4. Add your eggs one at a time, let them move freely around the pot.

  5. Let your eggs poach for 4 minutes, then lift them out with a perforated spoon and place on absorbent paper.

NEXT STEPS

  • Lightly toast your chosen bread and place on serving plate, drizzle with some quality olive oil (or butter if you prefer) and sprinkle with sea salt.

TO SERVE UP

There are many ways to spruce up this simple dish but we have kept this one simple..

Grab your favourite GSK kimchi or kraut (we have used wakame + pickled radish) and place a good spoonful on top of toasted bread, place your soft poached eggs on top and drizzle with more virgin oil and cracked black pepper.

Finish with a sprinkle of  fresh herbs.

Tip:  Some kimchi mayo is a great addition to this dish.
