Time: 35 min |  Serves: 2

INGREDIENTS

1 tbs extra virgin coconut oil
1 med brown onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium carrot, finely chopped

2 cups filtered water
1 tbs Tamari sauce
100g baby spinach
squeeze of lemon or lime juice (whatever is available)

Add tomato, lentils, water, tamari and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, covered for approximately 10 minutes.

Pour into your favourite bowl, or jar if saving for later. Stir in spinach leaves, and sever with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice and top with herbs.

You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy! SaveSaveSaveSaveSave

Pulled pork down right is a winner for any meat lover. Rich in iron, lean and oh so tasty you can enjoy pulled pork in a slider, taco or as a main with some roast vegetables and slaw. I like to make a big batch of pulled pork from time to time and enjoy over the next couple of days. If you have a slow cooker, it's literally a matter of putting a roast shoulder in, rubbing it all over with spices, turning the slow cooker on and enjoying when it's ready. SaveSave
