myFM: St Patrick's Day

Food dye and St Patrick's Day go hand in hand. And why not? Well, just that food colouring has been linked withHyperactivity, including ADHD, behavioral changes like irritability and depression, hives and asthma and even tumor growth and cancer. Not the healthiest way to celebrate St Paddy’s day! 

If you need to add green, I’ve used a greens powder green product. I’ve used spinach for just about anything and everything too. Matcha powder is a great green to use and will give you an energy boost too. 

Ok- so there are two ways to negate the hangover that’s to come if you’re going to a bar (if that’s possible) or having your own beer fest. First, take Vitamin B CoEnzyme Complex Liposome, vitamin C (Alka C), Glutathione and NAC Forte (N-Acetyl Cysteine) before you drink, and again after. I’d add KID BOOST to that because of the superfoods and greens that give you a lift when you most need it. 

So if you had a big veggie omelet, that would actually help the body detoxify the alcohol quicker as opposed to, you know, a bowl of raisin bran.

Recipe for a hangover omelet

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Handful of broccoli or asparagus, blanched or defrosted from frozen
  • Handful of spinach, washed 
  • ¼ cup cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp olive or coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper
DIRECTIONS
  1. Heat a frying pan to medium and add the onion for 5 minutes before adding in garlic. Cook for a further 4 minutes and finish off by wilting the spinach and warming the broccoli slightly.
  2. Remove everything from the frying pan, add a bit more oil and add the beaten eggs. Spread evenly over the base of the frying pan and when the egg is almost cooked, add back in the onion and broccoli mixture down the middle of the pan and top with grated cheese.
  3. Fold the edges of the omelet over top of the filling and cheese. Cook for a further minute and then serve.

by Lianne Phillipson June 02, 2021

This morning on myFM I answered an excellent question from listener Kyle. Are protein shakes really that healthy?? What is the point of them or the theory behind when we NEED to be taking them? I'm weary as to what they are. Gimmicky? Or actually helpful?
