LA POMME

a smoothie that's so smoooove.. you'll wonder why you haven't tried it before...I'm aware that most people wont have all the ingredients to hand.. but please try and get them in if you can, as we all know how boring it is following the same recipes daily...something which we never do @ Wallop!





















 whats in it
1 banana
1/2 fresh pomegranate.. seeds only
1tsp maca root
1/2 cup coconut water
1tsp manuka honey
ice

fire all ingredients into blender.. and whizz.. serves two..

and why

banana:
 In the traditional medicine of India and the ancient Persia this golden fruit is regarded as nature's secret of perpetual youth. To this day, banana is known for promoting healthy digestion and creating a feeling of youthfulness. They help promote the retention of calcium, phosphorus and nitrogen - all of which then work to build sound and regenerated tissues. Banana also contains invert sugar, which is an aid to youthful growth and metabolism.

pomegranates:
Pomegranates are a Super fruit.

The term “superfruit” refers to a fruit that's not only nutrient-dense and high in antioxidants, but one that has the ability to affect cell and molecular structure, and the potential to be beneficial to overall health.

Pomegranates are estimated to have three to seven times as much antioxidant value as green tea. Antioxidants are important to the human body because they help reduce the harmful effects of oxidants, or “free radicals,” and can help repair damage already done to cells.

Pomegranates are also high in Vitamin C and fiber, and contain the minerals iron, potassium and calcium. Other nutrients include Vitamin A, Vitamin E and folic acid.

maca root
maca root benefits that have always intrigued people are that it is a nutritious food that gives those who consume it more energy, strength, and endurance. As well as this, many people have used the root as an aphrodisiac down the ages. This benefit has recently been confirmed by scientists who have found that on some level it appears to increase the overall sexual drive of both men and women, and that it can also help to improve semen quality in men. This is not something that occurs because maca directly affects hormone production, but rather it is the unique nutritional content of the maca that causes it to assist the endocrine system in producing extra hormones that are then able to stimulate the sexual drive of people who are using it.

coconut water:
First of all, coconut water will help keep your body cool as it lowers your temperature.  It also helps carry oxygen to the cells in your body. It has been known to promote weight loss and it will help you clean out your digestive tract as well.  Coconut water benefits also include helping with circulation and helping the body break down kidney stones.  So far, it sounds that coconut water is really good for the human body.

manuka honey:
Manuka Honey is a premium grade honey that is derived from the New Zealand honey bees who feed on the blossoms of the Manuka bush. It has a natural antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties that can inhibit the growth and development of bacteria on the skin surface. It rapidly destroys the bacteria which causes the infection and hastens the process.

BEETS ME MAMA

right people.. as I'm on day 3 of my self imposed 5 day detox.. its time for my old pal.. the ' beet' to make an appearance. beetroots are amazing.. not only do they completely over power any juice but they are so good for you.. and i do mean the raw dirty ones, not the ones that have been polished up soaked in vinegar and left on store shelves for decades!!























whats in it
2 apples
1/2 raw beetroot
2 stems of chard
2 stems of curly kale
slice of fennel
stem of mint
ice

what its good for

beetroot: containing the powerful antioxidant betacyanin, which gives beetroot its deep red hue, this vegetable purifies the blood and has anti-carcinogenic properties. Research shows it boosts the body’s natural defenses in the liver, regenerating immune cells. Also contains silica, vital for healthy skin, fingernails, ligaments, tendons and bones.
Beet is believed to be native of the Mediterranean region of Europe and probably Western Asia. It has been used as a vegetable for the last 2000 years, even by early Greeks and Romans. It was so appreciated by ancients that it was offered on silver to Apollo in his temple at Delphi.
Beetroot contains sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, iodine, iron, copper, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C

apple
The apple is a highly nutritive food. It contains minerals and vitamins in abundance. The food value of the apple is chiefly constituted by its contents of sugar which ranges from 9 to 51 per cent. Of this, fruit sugar constitutes 60 per cent and glucose 25 pet cent and cane sugar only 15 per cent.
Apples are useful in kidney stones
Raw apples are good for constipation.are of special value to heart patients. They are rich in potassium and phosphorus but low in sodium. It is also useful for patients of high blood pressure.
Apple is also said to be beneficial to gout patients caused by increase of uric acid in blood.
Tooth-decay can be prevented by regular consumption of apples as they possess a mouth cleansing property.
The apple is the best fruit to tone up a weak and run-down patient. It removes deficiencies of vital organs and makes the body stout and strong. It tones up the body and the brain as it contains more phosphorus and iron than any other fruit or vegetable.

chard
Swiss chard is packed with nutrition.  It is an excellent source of vitamins C, E, and K, carotenes, chlorophyll, and fiber.  It is also an excellent source of several minerals including potassium,magnesium, iron, and manganese.  Swiss chard is also a good source of many other nutrients including vitamin B6, protein, calcium, thiamine, selenium, zinc, niacin, and folic acid.  
Swiss chard is one of the most powerful anti-cancer foods to its combination of traditional nutrients; phytochemicals, chlorophyll, other plant pigments, and soluble fiber. The generous amount of vitamin K that is contained in Swiss chard, is especially beneficial in the maintenance of bone health.

kale
Kale's risk-lowering benefits for cancer have recently been extended to at least five different types of cancer. These types include cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) made from glucosinolates in kale play a primary role in achieving these risk-lowering benefits.
Kale is now recognized as providing comprehensive support for the body's detoxification system. New research has shown that the ITCs made from kale's glucosinolates can help regulate detox at a genetic level.
Researchers can now identify over 45 different flavonoids in kale. With kaempferol and quercetin heading the list, kale's flavonoids combine both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits in way that gives kale a leading dietary role with respect to avoidance of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress.

fennel
Fennel has been used to treat digestive ailments since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Recent studies support the traditional use of fennel as a digestive aid. It has been shown to relieve intestinal spasms and cramping in the smooth muscle lining of the digestive tract, which helps relieve uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms

Today, fennel is an active ingredient in many combination herbal formulas used to balance hormones in menopausal and premenstrual women. It is also included in some herbal formulas that claim to promote natural breast enhancement.
Fennel has a reputation as an appetite suppressant and promoter of weight-loss. Some studies have shown that fennel does indeed have some diuretic effect, and may help reduce water retention.


mint
This Herb is bombarded with many vitamins and minerals. It contains carotene, the pigment which is part of Vitamin B complex family. It also contains good amounts of Thiamine.
Riboflavin, essential for many biological functions in body, is also present in Mint. Niacin and Folic acid are also present. Folic acid is very important vitamin for women.
It is directly related to optimal hormonal functioning of the body. The mood swings in women can be directly related to Folic acid deficiency. The immune system booster Vitamin C is also present.
It works as a powerful antioxidant. It is because of this reason that it has been extensively studied as anticancer drug. Minerals present in Mint include calcium, Phosporus, Zinc, Copper, magnesium and manganese, Selenium and fluoride.

IT'S WORKING FOR ME, WHY CAN'T IT FOR THEE?..

Sooooo..Matt's takin' time out of the kitchen to spend 3 days on a juice-tox..goes a little something like this..

- morning workout consisting of the Jump, Jap and Juice programme (see earlier post titled Jump, Jab and Juice) only now I add in 60 crunches (sit-ups) as well..

- reward with a juice (designed by the master blender himself, PG) and then a midday Matcha Green Tea..

- late afternoon I have another juice, or wizz up a soup made purely of vegetables and sometimes some fruits too..just as easy as the juicing with only a little cooking time required and it does help combat that little shithead devil-craving you get inside for some of the nastier foods you might still want to have a nosh on..

- next up an early evening Jump, Jab and Juice sess (with the crunches/same as this morning)..you'll be a bit fooked after this so finish the day with a long hot shower, wind down, sit back and relax with another Matcha Green tea and chill the night away..

- one thing I always do is to try and push myself a little more each day..5 more crunches, another couple of minutes on the punch bag, 150 bounces on the trampoline instead of 125..that sort of thing..it gives you a little goal each day and you will feel the benefits..

In true Wallop style this is all a little bit made up but..

'it's working for me, why it can't for thee!!

..WOW at WALLOP!!!!!


















..oh yes my babies, oh yes, oh yes..albeit temporarily, the crown returns..here's why -

BEETROOT SOUP, GRILLED PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM, POACHED EGG..I ain't gonna title this with anymore lingo..just tell you what I did..

..boiled up 3 whole beetroots (with all the beetroot stalks), 3 maris-piper potatoes, carrots, white onion, leek, fennel, star-anise, ginger, crushed carraway seeds, grated the zest of a whole orange and then squeezed in the juice, sea salt and black pepper..let it come to the boil and then simmer for 3 hours..once it's settled leave it to rest for half an hour then either blitz with a stick blender or put into a blender and blend!!

...wanted to add something a bit different so I grated some garlic into a portobello mushroom, drizzled over the top a little olive oil, sea salt and black pepper then grilled for 6-7 minutes..

..poach one egg in water and a little white wine vinegar..

..pour soup into large round bowl, float the mushroom in the middle and put the poached egg on top..finish with a little cracked black pepper, a drizzle of double cream and wallow in pure, uncensored food lust and if you have the energy after you've finished, I would highly recommend you drop your pants and play with yourself for a while but I promise you it won't be as enjoyable as eating this..

ENJOY

Much love from your resident Wallop chef..xx

Desssssseert

Well peeps after Matt graciously conceded that his dish, tho beautiful in looks, garnishes and taste didn't quite compare to the " purple rain' smoothie.. and frankly.. well.. yes.. i will accept the victory for tonight and leave you with our lingering dessert.. no pictures on this one, as its a slice or three of yesterdays walloping treacle and ginger loaf with real butter and home made lemon marmalade.. mmmmm

Matt and I shall resume our friendly rivalries tomorrow only @ wallop!!

..TO CONCEED, OR NOT TO CONCEED THAT IS THE QUESTION..


















..however, I feel a begrudging acceptance of defeat is in order tonight..I will start with the menu, and then discuss -

Sweet Cured Scotttish Mackerel, Pan-Fried Spinach, Oven Roasted Baby Tomatoes with an Apple, Fennel and Potato Dauphinoise

Now, the thing is the meal was, in all honesty, a great success..delicious, in fact!!..however, from my now professional and critical point of view I would have served this dish with a nice thick lump of Cod, and not the mackerel as it slightly overpowered the beautiful, aromatic and subtle sweet combination of apple and fennel in the dauphinoise potato, and the contrasting tangy ness of the slow cooked tomatoes in balsamic vinegar, brown sugar,black pepper and salt..

For this reason alone, I will concede defeat to Pauli's earlier sublime example of the soon to be famous Purple Rain smoothie..roll on tomorrow when battle will commence once more.

..BAD MOODS..!

..Matt returns after a bit of a hard day..with that in mind there's a bit of aggression in tonights dish. However, one thinks a flavour feast is on the cards as he tries to dethrone (for this evening only) his partner in crime, his smoothie mentor and the self-styled god of all that isn't a solid..the man, Paul Gallagher! Prepare to be defeated..menu coming up..!

PURPLE RAIN

 




















2 organic bananas

A SUCCESS!!!


Spice Crusted Yellow-Fin Tuna Loin, Sauteed Asparagus and Mushrooms and Shaved Organic Pear..
















Matt nailed it tonight..oh yeah baby...get this for a random put together -

Crushed up some cumin, coriander, sesame seeds, chilli, black pepper corns, sea salt to make up a spicy crust for the fresh tuna loin..very subtle on the spice and very, very delicious!! Pan-fry for about 1 minute each side so it's rare and leave to rest whilst...

..I sauteed organic mushrooms and asparagus in butter, a little white wine, garlic and a small amount of brown sugar..

..but the highlight, of the meal..a simple PEAR - BIG and JUICY, thinly sliced and served (uncooked) on top of the mushrooms and aspsragus..it brought the whole meal together..really sweet and fresh taste with every bite..complimented the spice of the tuna crust and the subtle richness of the asparagus and mushrooms sooooooo well..

finished off with a big handful of chopped parsley..completely made up on the spot..
job done..WALLOP!!!

..chefs back onboard..

Matt's in the kitchen again..we've got some tuna in't fridge fresh from east finchley's finest fishmonger..right, I'm looking in the fridge for some inspiration..what to do, what to do?

..best way to teach yourself to cook..look in your fridge or cupboard, see what there is and make something up..WALLOP! will post what I came up with tonight in a riddle!

Thursday Smoothie!!













Morning health nuts.. Matt seems to have temporarily disappeared, if anyone's seen him.. send him back to base camp would ya.
As you can see from the above picture i just couldnt wait to get my morning goodness, so i posted the aftermath of breakfast instead..

In that pint of exceedingly droolness was

Banana
Mango
Blackberries
Blueberrries
Advocado
Soya Milk

A, B, B1, B2, B6, C..

All good for great skin, great hair, nails, anti-ageing, slow release energy,healthy heart,natural protein, etc.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees
Mixing bowl+ spoon

Add wholemeal flour, add white flour, mix ingredients by hand.Add currants and mix again, add buttermilk and mix again, add bicarbonate soda, cream of tartar and salt and mix again, add water and mix yet again.

Bring mixture back out of mixing bowl and sift with additional flour until a dough is formed.
Add mixture to pre warmed silicone tin.
Mix organic egg in cup.. take a pastry brush and glaze over the top of the loaf.
