Turmeric Eggwhite Wraps with Turkey (clean eating, gluten free, dairy free)

Was wanting something different to do for dinner using my turkey breast I had.  So thought maybe some kinda wrap using similar recipes to protein pancakes.   Turmeric has many health benefits and I love to use it, and goes great with eggs!!

Turmeric is effective in treating cancer since it increases liver function. The liver helps to eliminate toxic substances from your body. Given its antibacterial properties, turmeric is beneficial in treating many types of cancer, most noticeably:  Breast Cancer • Colon Cancer • Lung Cancer • Leukemia  Turmeric hampers the growth of cancerous cells. This is just one of the many turmeric health benefits.

The liver helps by detoxifying your blood through the production of enzymes.  These enzymes break down and eliminate the toxins found your body By using turmeric in recipes it  increases the production of  these vital enzymes, thus increasing liver function.  As an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, turmeric works to heal wounds, cuts and other skin injuries. Its also healps arthritis, Alzheimers, Cardiovascular Disease and even Diabetes: Turmeric, along with many other spices, helps to moderate your insulin levels. If you consume a heavy sugary or white bread snack or meal, including turmeric will reduce how extreme your insulin response will be. Turmeric will by no means totally eliminate the sudden sugar intake shock on your body. Limiting sugar consumption and eating whole grains is the best approach to maintaining balanced levels.  http://turmerichealthbenefits.org/

So here’s a great way to get some Turmeric into your meals….(these are approx measurements, I have a habbit of chucking things together and not measuring lol)

Turmeric Eggwhite Wraps

2 eggwhites

1 Tbsp rolled oats

1 Tbsp almond meal

pinch salt

1/4 tsp turmeric

approx 2 tsp approx almond milk  (if your mix is looking runny enough you may not need it)

Blend in a food processor and pour into a frypan coated in olive oil spray, organic butter or coconut oil.  Spread it out if needed to make a thin but not too thin crepe.  As you dont want it to tear. Cook both sides, carefully flipping over.

Add any ingredients you want,  I added shredded turkey breast a little grated low fat cheese and cucumber. Filling ideas are endless.  Secure with a tooth pick if needed. Adding a 3rd eggwhite might help too to make a bigger crepe to wrap your filling.

French Toast Roasted Almonds (Clean Eating, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Option, Refined Sugar Free)

I discovered this recipe on Instagram and the image immediately caught my eye. I love almonds and with the words roasted and french toast infront of it surely you cant go wrong?

Well I just made these, so simple and really yummy. A nice spin on a plain almond. A great idea would be doing this but with mixed nuts and breaking chunks off like a ‘brittle’ type thing.

Thanks for sharing the recipe on instagram Rachaelallanah 🙂

 

French Toast Roasted Almonds

1 cup raw almonds

1 tsp butter (optional)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp rice malt syrup (can use honey)

 

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (fan forced).

In a bowl place all ingredients except almonds and microwave for about 30 seconds, keeping an eye on it and stop it when it bubbles (or you can do this over the stove).  Mix the hot syrup with the almonds and thoroughly coat.  Spread on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and bake for about 15 minutes.
