Clean and Healthy Recipe: Ginger and Lemon Soba Noodles

Clean and Healthy Recipe: Ginger and Lemon Soba Noodles (getfoxfit)

Total time: 15 mins (5 mins prep) and 10 mins cooking

If you are looking for an easy, clean, healthy and very yummy lunch or dinner idea, then look no further.

This dish is up there on my Top Meals list.  Extremely flavorsome, quick and easy to do.

I amazingly had left overs of this so chucked it in the fridge and ate them the next day cold – let me tell you, they were just as good, if not better!

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 cloves garlic (either chop or put them through a garlic press)
5 inch bit of ginger (finely chop)
Box of tofu (if it’s in one whole piece cut into blocks) – if you prefer you can use prawns or white fish (cod, haddock, tilapia) or, if you are a meat eater, chicken or beef
1 pak choi (roughly chop)
1 cayenne pepper (discard the seeds and finely chop)
Handful of bean sprouts
200g soba (buckwheat) noodles
Himalayan salt and pepper to taste

Method:
1. Bring water to a boil and put the soba noodles in for 8 mins.
2. In the mean time put all your ingredients (apart from the leafy parts of the pak choi) into a wok and stir fry on a low to medium heat for 8 mins.
3. Drain the soba noodles, add them and the leafy parts of the pak choi to the wok.  Turn heat up to full and stir fry for 1 min.

The benefits of drinking lemon juice in the morning

Since the beginning of this year we have incorporated lemon juice into our morning ritual.

Lemons have so many health benefits – especially when drank on an empty stomach with warm water.

Benefits include:

  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Helps you lose weight (regulating your body’s metabolism & absorption of sugar and helps curb hunger)
  • Natural energizer and enhances your mood (don’t we all need that in the morning?!)
  • Aids digestion (relieves symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn and bloating)
  • Cleanses and detoxes your system (flushes out unwanted toxins)
  • Balances pH levels (removes acidity in the body)
  • Good for your skin (and cures skin related problems as it is an antiseptic)
  • High in Vitamin C (promotes healing, helps decrease wrinkles & blemishes, fights colds and keeps you Zen by giving you an extra shot of Vitamin C that helps your mind and body against stress)
  • Hydrates the lymph system (prevents dehydration, stress and toxic buildup)

 How to, in 3 easy steps:

  1. Boil the kettle
  2. In the meantime, squeeze a small lemon (or half a big lemon) into a mug
  3. Pour warm (not boiling) water into the mug (boiling water will destroy some of the fresh lemon’s properties)
  • For best results wait 30 mins before eating your breakfast
