This recipe is Gluten-free, Vegan and is ready within 20 minutes
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Extra virgin olive oil
2 head of garlic (12 cloves)
1 1/2 tbsp Tumeric Powder
3 tbsp high-quality sweet paprika
2 Chopped(cubed) Plum Tomatoes
8 cups fresh spinach
½ cup water (125 ml)
4 ½ cups cooked chickpeas
For the chickpeas, it’s best to cook them in boiling water for one or two hours or until they’re soft. But before you cook them, you should soak the chickpeas overnight, as the longer you let it soak before cooking them, the quicker they will cook.
With regards to the spinach, chop the spinach to your desired size(finely is better) and cook it in olive oil , instead of water ,is the best choice for lower calorie intake.
Cook the garlic (diced) and tumeric powder in a saucepan with the oil over medium heat until golden brown. Add the paprika, stir and add the spinach. Add the water and salt to taste (optional) and cook for 6 minutes.
Add the cooked chickpeas, tomato, stir and cook for 5 minutes more.
Moreover, following a healthy nutrition regime includes choosing plenty of vegetables, fruit, whole grain, beans, and beyond…. and only seldom consuming foods that are high in added sugar, saturated fat and sodium.
Granted the food you eat has a direct impact on the parts of the brain that regulate mood, maintaining stable blood sugar through regular and proper nutrition help us feel better overall. Thus, healthy foods, such as fruits, whole grains and vegetables, are rich in vitamins and minerals that have been associated with an overall lower risk of depression, as have foods rich in omega-3 fats, such as nuts, salmon and other fatty fish.
Consuming healthy foods, including protein-rich diet as well as fish and dairy that contain omega-3 fatty acids and magnesium, can reduce stress by decreasing the body’s stress hormone( cortisol ) level, and bring true happiness as well as a greater ability to focus your thoughts on productivity.
Keep a Healthy Weight
According to a 2012 study in the Journal of Health Economics, the average obese person spends $2,741 more on health care per year than a normal-weight counterpart. Thus, simple healthy choices such as replacing soda with water can help with regulating your body weight and can, in turn, help lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to the Obesity Action Coalition.
Likewise, consuming veggies instead of chips, and eating a side salad in place of fries will also help you achieve your desired weight level, and, in the process, can also help you save money.
Being Healthy is Rewarding
Eating right, by consuming foods that are rich in micronutrients – like vitamins and minerals, help improve the health of both – thin and overweight people.
Whereas, eating healthy servings of fruits and vegetables that are rich in healthy vitamins and healthy minerals every day can lower the risk of dying from any health-related cause, deficiencies in healthy vitamin and healthy mineral can lead to premature death risks.
Longer Life Expectancy
A combination of exercise and diet of fruit and vegetables, and omega-3 fats from fish and olive oil was found to be associated with extended life expectancy for aging women.
Like science, budgeting for grocery entails mastering the intricacies as well as juggling time, preference, income, store availability, seasons, life situations, and more. These are my top 10 tips for creating a grocery budget—and sticking to it.
Audit your Current Spending Figures On Grocery
On the first month, start tracking what you spend on everything that you consume. By having a realistic idea of what you usually spend on grocery, you might suddenly realize that you’ve been spending too much on grocery shopping. Keep your receipts.
Segment your food expenses into an itemized list.
Segment your budget
Budget monthly. Track weekly. Planning your meals per week will help you avoid unnecessary expenses on take-outs and help you be more organized and shop accordingly.
Be Creative with your leftovers.
Leftovers will not only feed you but will save you a bundle. Try to emphasize on meals that make good leftovers and freeze leftovers.
Identify your priorities
Prioritize those items that are essential for your wellbeing, which may include vegetables, fruits, fresh foods and basic whole foods. Delete unnecessary items before cutting out essential ones
Variety will make your grocery consumption more enjoyable
Develop a Shopping List on Your Smart Phone
This list will help you quickly log in items that you need before you run empty. This will prevent incomplete shopping.
Use Coupons Scrupulously
A good rule of thumb to remember is that coupons are great for items that you need and from brands that you like, not to buy unnecessary items. Likewise, compare the price(s) of generic versions of many items in the coupon book as they may be even cheaper than the price you’ll pay for a discounted name brand item.
Purchase and stock Just Enough When There Is a Sale.
Don’t be trapped into buying more because it’s a great deal.
If you have the time, it’s a great idea to visit a few stores to audit prices.
