Below delicious and pure Detox Rolls, made from grated organic roots vegetables, wheat grass vinaigrette and paper thin cucumber slices have been served at the Madinat Jumeirah Luxury Yoga Retreat last weekend!
Last weekend Talise hosted a prestigious Les Mills Masterclass at Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai. The culinary team has contributed delicious Talise Nutrition inspired health food. As important as training is food, the “fuel” one puts to get the body working well and energized.
Healthy food – healthy body!
Another wonderful morning by the beach at Al Quasr Hotel….after a blissful workout a very healthy breakfast awaited our guests of our first Luxury Yoga Retreat at Madinat Jumeirah. Enjoy the pictures of the weekend and try my Amaranth Muesli!
Fresh cottage cheese, with tomato, cucumber and parsley waits to be dipped with wholesome arabic bread…..
…and my dairy free and gluten free Amaranth muesli for a perfect powerful start into the day – plenty of diced fruits like banana, apple, water melon, papaya, mango, orange topped by freshly puffed amaranth seeds.
Good morning from Al Quasr Beach!
After an early morning Yoga workout this is exactly what nourishes body and soul…..
If you are not with us this morning you can get the recipe for the muesli here to make it at home.
It was a pleasure to be a guest at Suzanne’s at Dubai Eye today. See here a picture of the wrap! Now I was busy cooking for our first luxury Yoga Retreat at Madinat Jumeirah. Healthy and light food of course that our participants enjoyed after an intense full moon Yoga execise by the beach.
Tomorrow we will have a cooking class which I am very much looking forward to - more pictures are coming soon.
I am excited to talk today 10 – 11 am on Dubai Eye Radio about Talise Nutrition and what we do at Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts in terms of healthy lifestyle support. As well, I am looking foreward to seeing some of my readers at the Yoga Retreat that starts today at Madinat Jumeirah!
Talise Nutrition is loving vegan food & lifestyle. It supports in a great way health and wellbeing. Hence I would like to share one more favorite recipe with you. This dish offers a perfect balance of flavors and brings a wealth of nutritional benefits.
Now in late summer the first pumpkins are available on the markets. The perfect time to make this easy and delicious dish!
Avocado, Pumpkin & Quinoa
What to buy
How to prepare it Peel and deseed the pumpkin and cut it into two identic pieces. Simmer the pumpkin in orange juice, adding some water when required until it is soft. Cut the tomatoes in chunky pieces and blend them with vegetable stock or water. Strain through a sieve to remove the seeds and skin. Dice carrot, celery, zucchini and leeks. Simmer in little olive oil, add the quinoa and roast for 30 seconds. Add carefully some tomato liquid and simmer on low heat. Watch the quinoa, stir once in a while and add more liquid when required. This may take around 45 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and the leeks after 40 minutes and allow them to slightly cook for the remaining 5 minutes. Season to taste. Peel the avocado and remove the stone. Slice it thinly. Cut the filets out of the citrus fruits. Pick the coriander leaves. Serve the poached pumpkin topped with Avocado and citrus wedges and picked coriander leaves. Drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange the quinoa next to it.
Chef Gabi’s Tip
Quinoa is a nutritional protein powerhouse, supporting to build a lean figure. Pumpkin and avocado support skin beauty and Vitamin C rich citrus fruits help to burn fat.
With all these benefits on health and wellbeing this dish will be served at our soon to come Yoga Retreat at Madinat Jumeirah. Hope to see you there!
