Thursday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe On a sunny and warm day, there is nothing better than starting your day with an ice cold smoothie bowl. We use frozen bananas and avocado as the base so you know it’s going to be thick, creamy and chilly!! Today we have pineapple available but you can mix and match to make your own combination. Toasted nuts seeds and some fresh fruit means you are not only getting good fats but also lots of texture and flavour. The colour and taste of the soup just shouts out ‘nourish me’!! It’s orange and all that beta-carotene along with proteins and complex carbs will do just that! Romesco sauce is a beautiful marriage of flavours from roasted peppers and tomatoes. It’s earthiness works so well with the freshness of the courgettie and the creamy, garlic and herb haricot mash. It’s curry for dinner tonight and we some more family favourites. Keema is spicy lamb mince. We make our own spice blends and we also make our own naans. #lunch #dinner #breakfast #healthyeating #health #wellness #eating #cook #cafe #healthylifestyle #balanceddiet #freshfood #wholesome #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #smoothie #nourish
Our salads today @madefromscratchcafe . Dreamy, crunchy and fresh cucumber, courgette with a mint and avocado dressing; Spicy beetroot and rocket and finally our sprouting salad with lemon and olive oil. Just add a little bit of extra protein in the form of fish, chicken, or tofu and you have a perfectly balanced meal. Our Buddha Bowls are delicious and nutritious, consciously put together to maximise health benefits. Whoever said salads were boring quite clearly has a lack of imagination. Nature helps us if we open your eyes and quiet our minds from the noise which tells us to eat highly refined sugary and salty foods. #bethechange #sunshine #sun #salads #buddhabowl #consciouscooking #mindfuleating #nature #natural #sprouts #guthealth #microbiome #eatwell #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #raw #vegan #glutenfree #dairyfree #eattherainbow #cook #cooking #freshfood

Tuesday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe How many different vegetables do you eat a day? 5,10,20?? Ideally every meal and snack should be a complete with all elements needed to fuel and nourish us. Do you eat the same veggies everyday? Carrots, peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce...... To have a healthy diet we need variety. Our bodies need an abundance of a variety of veggies to truly be well and healthy. We don’t use oil to ‘stir fry’ we use water to steam fry. If needed we add good quality oils afterwards. #glutenfree #delicious #wellness #vegan #balanceddiet #guthealth #microbiome #cafe #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #eat #eating #eatwell #fitfam #fitness #foodismedicine #foodisfuel #nourish #goodfood
Peanut Butter Shortbread inspired by @deliciouslyella I didn’t watch the recipe, just saw the ingredients and made a few adjustments to reduce the amount of sugar, baked it at 180C for 20 minutes, drizzle with Chocolate and popped it in the fridge. Of course we had to try it! OMG it’s dangerously good!! Please come to the @madefromscratchcafe and eat them before I finish them all 😂😁🤗 @jonbaileytraining @anish337 @misspriya__ @ninla02 @Lou isflynn they are waiting for you. #glutenfree #wellness #dairyfree #vegan #delicious #tasty #yummy #peanutbutter #preworkout #postworkout
Colours from nature; salads are an opportunity to enjoy flavours and textures at their freshest. Salads are certainly not boring especially if you start liking for seasonal ingredients to add as well as nuts, seeds, sprouting veggies, beans or lentils, herbs and wild growing leaves. Look for colours and textures which keep the eyes and palette interested. Avoid using too much or any dried fruit; instead you could add a little bit of fresh fruit. Use the best quality organic cold pressed olive oil in dressings. Dressing are so easy to make. I have a few super quick ones on my blog www.meerabhogal.com Give them a go, take a picture and tag me. Let’s start eating the Rainbow. #eating #eat #eattherainbow #colour #nature #salads #food #freshfood #raw #vegan #plantbased #eatmoreplants #guthealth #microbiome #meerasmadefromscratchcafe @madefromscratchcafe

Why do we need a varied diet?? Harry’s wisdom!! 😂 but sadly we ran out of time 😂 #macro #micro #food #nutrition #eat #husbandandwife #love #gratitude #nomakeup #bethechange #saturday #thoughts #learn #share
Saturday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe We simply love using wonderful ingredients and consciously creating dishes which provide our customers with maximum nutrition. It’s not just about the macros! We have to start to think bigger than that and see the whole picture. If life was as simple as counting calories to stay healthy there would so many more ‘healthy’ people out there. Instead increasing numbers of us are becoming sick and unwell. Our bodies are complex and it is quite astonishing what our body does which we take for granted. It’s goes without saying that what we put in is what we will get back in abundance. So we can choose to put in rubbish and over time, destroy our body or perhaps be kind to our incredibly hardworking body and nourish it, nurture it and give it some love. Your health is important. Without good health, life changes. #wellbeing #mentalhealthawareness #eat #eatwell #food #lifestyle #health #wellness #freshfood #varieddiet #microbiome #guthealth #healthyfood #obesity #diabetes #nourish #countcoloursnotcalories #eattherainbow #vegan #glutenfree #dairyfree #foodisfuel #foodismedicine #holistichealth
It’s impossible to isolate being healthy into aspects such as food, exercise, sleep...... I think we have to look at health as holistic. It’s all those elements working together to create a healthier and stronger individual. Neglecting one will bring us out of balance. Start by focusing on one aspect but don’t feel the task is complete until you have readdress and reviewed all of them. For me training with @jonbaileytraining is one piece of the jigsaw of what makes me tick, makes me function and makes me happy. Having someone to help you with understanding how to make changes and knowing what works for you is also important. Nourishing your body and fuelling it, as I do @madefromscratchcafe is part of my daily routine. #gymlife #training #pt #menopause #mentalhealthawareness #health #wellbeing #bethechange #balanceddiet #healthyeating #beactive #foodismedicine #foodisfuel #holistichealth #workout #osteoperosis #prevention #diabetes #obesity
Friday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe Smoothie Bowls are a refreshing start to the day. They are loaded with good fats, minerals, vitamins and fibre. Lunch is something new. It’s important for your microbiome to have a varied diet; try new things and keep your gut busy! Venison is a lean meat which high in zinc and B12.  For a vegan version we have the hot pot with tofu.  We are sautéing the potatoes in sage and garlic and we use water to steam fry. Friday evening is all about pizzas at the cafe. We make our own bases, wheat and vegan, and our own sauce too! We offer a takeaway service too. Call us on 07950110574 to place an order. #eatwell #food #cafe #health #healthyfood #healthyeating #foodie #pizza #homemade #cooking #cook #breakfast #smoothies #smoothiebowl #balanceddiet #holistichealth #meerasmadefromscratchcafe
Black buckwheat pasta tossed in roasted peppers and tomatoes and wild garlic pesto with prawns and topped with peashoots, alfalfa and asparagus. My post work our meal.

I’m not a gardener at all and I cannot take credit for all this handy work. I have wanted to grow my own vegetables and herbs for such a long time now and my lovely gardener, Miguel,  has made this happen. We discuss what I want, what’s in my head and then he helps me by planting the plants. I then have the privilege of watching them grow and pulling them out of the ground. Seeing the cycle of nature is an extraordinary thing. From ground to plate is a totally humbling experience. These carrots will be going to the @madefromscratchcafe to be used in juices, salads and along with other veggies we buy. I’m already thinking of using both the carrots and parsley in a salad or perhaps a savoury muffin. Health is holistic and food is definitely designed to help us heal, be strong and be healthy. Don’t make eating complicated; just focus on whole natural foods. #food #garden #nature #groundtoplate #cook #cooking #mothernature #mentalhealthawareness #organic #herbs #vegetables #gratitude #foodismedicine #nourish #eatwell #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #holistichealth #bethechange
Purple potatoes which are going to be used today in our lunch @madefromscratchcafe . Purple potatoes contain 4 times as much anti-oxidant content as white potatoes. Anthocyanin is the pigment that creates the colour and acts as an anti-oxidant. Eating the Rainbow 🌈 #foodie #foodfacts #foodismedicine #eatwell #nourish #purple #nature #meerasmadefromscratchcafe
