Day 9 - 10 minute Vegan Indonesian Satay with Chickpeas #22DayChallenge
Updated: Jul 14
During my Facebook Live on Sunday, I was talking about how my juicer packed in on Day 6 and I was wondering why this happened? Was this a way of showing me that 1 week was enough and to try something else or was there another reason? I wasn't sure so I thought I'd go a few days without Celery Juice to see how my body reacted and decided the best substitute in the meantime would be wheatgrass powder mixed with water and see how I progressed.
By Day 2 I noticed my energy levels had significantly dropped and my body was missing the nutrients from the Celery Juice. This gave me the clarity I needed so I ordered a new juicer and it arrived yesterday on Day 8 woo hoo!!
I got acquainted with the new juicer and it's a much better model. In fairness, the old one had done its time and the fan belt just went so the 3 days without Celery Juice just made me more certain that it was definitely the right thing for me to be doing. Drinking the first juice on Day 9 felt great and my energy levels came back to full flow and I decided to make a commitment to make it a part of my daily routine from now on by having it for breakfast after this challenge is over. My mum welcomed its return as well so I'm grateful that I can see it's benefits now with greater clarity. Things may have looked from the outside like they were going wrong but these parts of the challenge are the golden nuggets. Accept what appears and recalibrate until you become really clear of the right path for you.
Today I want to share a recipe that is super tasty and healthy and has been one of my favourites since I cooked it for the first time last September on a 4 week ultimate vegan cooking course I did with the Happy Pear. These guys have 18 years experience with Vegan Cooking and they have turned it into a fine art. What I like most is that they do not compromise on taste, this dish ticks all the boxes and will tantalise your tastebuds. This is a quick 10-minute dinner packed full of nutrients and is enough for 2-3 people depending on how big you like your portions. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
If you've wanted to transition to Veganism or just want to change up your daily routine cooking really delicious healthy meals, they are doing their Ultimate Vegan Course which has 55% off at the moment. They also do other courses which focus on different parts of the body such as the Heart/Gut/Skin and are deeply passionate about what they do which I love. Check out the link below and I'll be back for my daily update tomorrow
DAILY TIP #1: Let this recipe be a guideline, you can throw in whatever veg you like and use any nut butter..Have fun experimenting.
DAILY TIP #2: You can also add sweet potato, butternut squash or pumpkin to this dish, all work well. It has now become a staple part of my diet.
