This is part of an ongoing weekly series called Juicy Facts – learning the health benefits of foods we commonly eat and didn’t know were so amazing for us! Stroll down to learn some goodies and find some recipes for this week’s hot juicy fact!
Hey guys, and welcome to this week’s Juicy Fact! Today’s hot pocket is..
We knew these guys were awesome for our immunity and digestion, but amazing to help out with kidney stones right??!
Healthy Recipes for You!!
Each week as we introduce a new Juicy Fact, I’ll be sharing a few recipes with you so you can grab these benefits and go! I’ll be cooking these healthy treats myself and handing you some hints alongside so you can get the best out of each of them!
Oranges are a go go!
Just an FYI, these links are not affiliated. I have found these myself and tried them myself, for my own healthy benefits. I will not receive any entitlements or moolah for sharing with you 🙂
Skinny Orange Chicken by Gimme Some Oven
Now, I apologise for the photos – noo, I didn’t end up cooking the recipes this week because I have been feeling quite ill of late, but I have tried each one of these recipes and love them!
This Skinny Orange Chicken is so easy to make – one of those recipes that you can whip in a jiffy, and who doesn’t have oranges in their fridge? I loved it with the quinoa, but you can always try the salad recipe that is at the bottom of the post! Genius!
Iced Orange Ginger Green Tea by The Harvest Kitchen
I did manage to make this one, because it is definitely quick, and I felt like a refreshment (don’t we all!). The orange can be a little bit strong, so if you don’t quite like the flavour of orange juice itself, don’t add as many oranges in and dilute! But it is a beautiful pick me up, and would definitely kick away some colds in the Winter months! You can also try it warm (which I did) and it’s just as good, if not better!
Grain Free Orange Cake by A Saucy Kitchen
I loooovvve Orange and Poppyseed muffins, and this recipe takes the cake – literally. It is so moist and so refreshing, with a nice amount of orange flavour, not overpowering. Now, as with most Paleo cake recipes, it isn’t so springy like a standard cake, but you won’t regret trying this one!
Juicy fact done and dusted!
Man oh man, oranges all round.
Put those oranges on your shopping list!!
Next week, is a juicy food I’ve never tried before, so it’s going to be a bit interesting! It’s red and has seeds. And that’s all I’m telling you! #notreallyredthough
