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

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

I am still shocked at the fact that I managed to MUSCLE UP💪  Yesterday I managed to do it for the first ever time, BUT it was with a fat resistance band.  Today I worked my way through all the resistance bands from fat to thin and gave this a shot and managed 2. I think this is the best way to do a muscle up as it teaches you the swing needed 💪  It has been my dream to do a muscle up since I ever started working out and finally did 2 today! Feels so good !  Just gassed and it’s crazy that you can achieve something that once you may have thought impossible to ever do.  Just yesterday I thought I had made good progression and thought to myself I would manage a muscle up after a couple months time on resistance bands but the very next day I just went and did 2!  I know it’s very messy and there’s still a ton of room for improvement!  This is just the start and remember, you can actually do something that you may think is way out of your reach. Just takes consistency and showing up daily and you’ll get there💪💪 Also creds to Ali for the vid and commentary🤣
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

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.

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
Wednesday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe It’s Mental Health Awareness Week. Does that make us focus on anything in particular at the cafe? NO. Why?? Well because our ethos is to nourish mind and body and to bring about awareness that food is a very important part of our well being. Eating a wide variety of foods, eating colourful foods, using whole fresh and where possible organic ingredients along with sleep, rest, exercise, spending time with people who lift your spirits, being mentally active, spending time outdoors are all important aspects to our overall well being; mental & physical wellbeing. #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #foodie #eatwell #mentalhealthawareness #listen #share #eat #wholefood #protein #glutenfree #dairyfree #vegan #bethechange

Monday 20th May. Many of us feel we are eating well and being healthy. Some of us are struggling to loose weight, despite making changes to our diet. Some of us feel we are making smarter swaps to reduce the sugar we eat. BUT DO WE REALLY KNOW HOW MUCH SUGAR WE ARE EATING EACH DAY? Yes we have apps that tell us and give us an amount but what does this look like and are we actually making smarter swaps or simply swapping one type of sugar for another. Sugar is NOT the enemy but we do need to be aware of where the hidden sugars are and learn about where sugar comes from in our diet. On this workshop we will be looking at what you eat, how much sugar you are consuming daily and how to make realistic smarter swaps. Come join me for a small intimate workshop and where we can discuss what the fuss is about sugar and focus on your journey with sugar. You will be required to keep a food and drink diary, so we can talk about your specific needs.

Magnesium plays a role in regulating muscle contractions. If your body doesn't have enough magnesium to compete with calcium, your muscles may contract too much, causing cramps or spasms. 💪 Magnesium is commonly recommended to treat muscle cramps.  Magnesium is found in plenty foods: pumpkin seeds, spinach, black beans, flaxseed, beet greens, almonds, cashews, dark chocolate, avocado, tofu, salmon. 🥑🍫 If you can't meet your daily magnesium needs through foods alone, consider taking a supplement.

Saturday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe Chia seeds are a complete protein and are loaded with fibre. It’s important to soak them before consuming them. We use them in vegan baking and also in our homemade ‘jam’ because they help create the ‘jelly like’ consistency. This breakfast is a dreamy combination of sweetness from the coconut, crunchiness from the chia seeds and the plethora of flavours from the compote. Today’s Soup is a vegan version of an old classic and it goes perfectly with Chia and Flaxseed bread. We will be serving lunch from 12pm onwards so you can even enjoy our homemade laksa for an early evening dinner. Last orders will be at 7.15pm. We have lots of options on our main menu such as Shakshuka, omelettes, mezze platter , smoothies bowls, classic breakfast, toast toppers and pancake stacks and not forgetting our sweet treats, energy balls, fresh juice and smoothies. Our food is all Made with fresh ingredients consciously put together to ensure we give our customers maximum nutritional benefit and flavour.

Friday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe All our food is made in our kitchen and made from scratch. We use oats with gluten to make our porridge but we also have a gluten free option by using quinoa flakes and you can even choose from a wide variety of the milks we stock. The rhubarb compote has a sweet sharpness which works well with the creamy porridge. Our tomato soup is creamy  and it’s dairy free, vegan and gluten free. Lunch is a delicious combination of flavours and textures; Smoked haddock or tofu, creamy cashew nut sauce, delicate broccoli rice topping makes this dish gluten free, grain free, dairy free AND packed with flavour, protein, good fats and fibre, as well as lots of complex carbs. Dinner is PIZZA. We make our own pizza bases and tomato topping. We also serve a grain free, vegan version made with a sweet potato and cauliflower base and vegan cheese.

Thursday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe Spicy eggs/tofu are becoming very popular. Flavoured with ground cumin & coriander, paprika and turmeric. A great way to wake up the taste bugs. They work well with the creaminess of the smashed avocado. Lunch is a wonderful way to get in lots of vegetables, fibre, pre and probiotics as well as protein. Make it grain free with broccoli rice or add some extra carbohydrates with vermicelli. We can make it mild or hot so let us know how you like your chilli level. We use @bottlebrushferments kimchi to add deliciousness!! We also sell this rather tasty fermented food. Once you try it you will be hooked! We are open for Dinner from 6-9pm with last orders at 8.30pm. Our curries are based on my family recipes, using homemade spice blends and made using fresh organic ingredients.

Another customer who is feeling the healing benefits of our homemade bone broth. @madefromscratchcafe We sell bone broth. It’s an ancient food which has helped me with my IBS and inflammation. I have to admit at the beginning I was very squeamish about the thought but once I saw the effects of how it was helping me I haven’t looked back. However there are some stipulations I adhere to; the bones I use have to be organic and where possible from animals which are either wild or are reared and looked after well. I feel that by using the whole animal I am playing my part in promoting a more sustainable way of living. This how it would have been before. If you eat every part of the animal or use it for something you don’t need to kill so many animals. A chicken can provide a meal for a week if it is used properly. I know people may say become vegetarian or vegan but if you do want to eat meat, which does have its benefits, eating less, being conscious of where you source it from and trying to use more than just one part, I feel will help the issue we have surrounding mass production of meat reared in horrible conditions, fed hormones and rubbish which is then passed on to us.  #foodforthought #bonebroth #guthealth #ibs #eatwell #ancientremedies #nutrition #healing #foodisfuel #foodismedicine #holistichealth #nourish #food #goodfood #meerasmadefromscratchcafe
Wednesday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe I made the pesto with fresh basil and walnuts which are a high source of mono and poly unsaturated fats- these are the good guys plus being a valuable source of the essential fatty acid omega 3 and iron. Having it for breakfast makes a great alternative to adding it to pasta and a perfect start to the day. Give it a go it’s delicious. Asparagus are a good source of fibre, folate and vitamins A, C and K. This is how we think about food. What is it going to do for us ? How is the food we eat going to nourish us, fuel us and help us to be healthy and strong?. Healing is holistic and is only part of the package along with rest, sleep, being active, working with a purpose, spending time with people who lift your spirits, laughing! Our food is mainly gluten and dairy free and we always have vegan options as well as catering for vegetarians and meat eaters. Carefully sourced and consciously put together. #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #food #eating #pesto #eggs #organic #vegetables #nutrition #glutenfree #foodisfuel #eatwell #dairyfree #eattherainbow #countcoloursnotcalories #balance #nourish #bethechange #soup #cafe #holistichealth #consciouseating
A day in the life of the @madefromscratchcafe  Vegan Ramen packed full of flavour and nutrients. We used chagga mushroom powder as well as fresh mushrooms to add depth to the vegan broth and a vegan miso paste. The mixture of fresh and cooked vegetables gives your body a variety of goods to digest as well as giving your taste buds new flavours and textures with each bite. I’m taking a position of the chicken broth version home for dinner. The second picture was a ‘flexible’ meal which we created after speaking to our customer and finding out what he wanted. Toast topped with spicy aromatic mince lamb, fried eggs, some vegetables and a delicious farm sourced chicken sausage which is 100% meat. The last picture is Carrot, Ginger and coriander soup made using fresh organic ingredients. #flexiblefood #eatwell #eating #cafe #cafelife #ramen #vegan #glutenfree #dairyfree #foodisfuel #nutrition #gymlife #meerasmadefromscratchcafe

What is Cholesterol? Cholesterol is a waxy substance which is essential to our health and wellbeing. The cholesterol in our body originates from two different sources: on avarage 20% is from the diet and 80% is produced in the body by the liver.  Cholesterol helps the body perform: - make cell membrane - repair blood vessels -create vitamin D using sunlight -create hormones -helps transport vitamins A, D, E, K - helps create bile salts Cholesterol is carried throught the bloodstream by lipoproteins in two different forms LDL cholesterol (bad) and HDL cholesterol (good). Cholesterol becomes a risk when LDL cholesterol level rise too high. 💗  What are the risks of high cholesterol? British Heart Foundation statistics reveal 60% of adults in the UK have high cholesterol. 75% of over 45 years old have high cholesterol. Prevalence is growing each year. High cholesterol may increase the risk of Atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke. Heart and circulatory disease is the biggest killer in the UK.  The UK is the world's 2nd highest statin dispensing nation per 1000 people. 25% of people on statin suffer side effects. 🏥  Work with Registered Nutritional Therapist Anna Winek to optimise your health & improve cholesterol levels.

Tuesday’s Menu @madefromscratchcafe I love salmon and poached eggs with asparagus but what’s exciting me more is the vegan version!! The spiced beetroot and tomato is so full of flavour and packed with nutrients. Topped with pan seared tofu for protein and why not add some asparagus for a crunch! Yum!! Carrot, ginger and coriander soup is a classic and we don’t use any lentils or grains in our soups so they are simply and truly filled with vegetables- nothing to ‘bulk’ them out! Top your soup with pan seared tofu or chicken for added protein and a slice of your choice of bread. Lunch is one my favourites last Ramen MFS style! We now sell our chicken broth which is cooked over 36 hours and made with love and patience. We use this in our ‘meat’ version of Ramen and add lots and lots of vegetables to add crunch, texture and added goodness. Our vegan version is made with a miso and mushroom broth. #glutenfree #nourish #vegan #dairyfree #ramen #soup #vegetables #protein #balanced #eatwell #foodismedicine #foodisfuel #nourish #nutrition #meerasmadefromscratchcafe
A day in the life of the @madefromscratchcafe  Just some of the yummy things which were served today; our MFS chocolate cake, gluten free, dairy free, grain free but definitely not taste free! And the second picture was a chia and coconut pudding made upon request by one of our regular customers. It took just 15 minutes and was light, grain free, dairy free, no added sugar, vegan and full of protons and fibre. #goodfood #mondaymotivation #trysomethingnew #eat #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #delicious #chocolate #cake #chiaseeds #coconut #glutenfree  #dairyfree #vegan #nourish
This is definitely not a finite list merely a sample of some foods we may not consider when we think about SUGAR. I’m holding a workshop on 20th May @madefromscratchcafe Which is located @darwinwellness  to help you learn a skill which will make a huge indifference to how you buy food and what you eat. Reading food labels is important because we need to cut out the ‘noise’ made by the marketing teams, the producers and manufacturers claiming things are healthy, low sugar, low fat and throwing figures at us in the hope that if one our favourite processed foods is now 70% less sugar we will feel better about eating it because we are reducing our sugar in take. In this workshop we will be looking at the foods you are eating and identifying the actual amount of sugar being consumed. I will be asking you to keep a food and drink  diary for a day leaving up to the event and To bring in the packaging of what you have eaten or drunk. This is all about you and together with 4-6 other like minded people, we will learn how to circumnavigate the maze of misinformation we are told about food.  We will be looking at the RDA and getting a visual guide to a so called ‘unhealthy diet’ loaded with processed foods and comparing it to what we are lead to believe is a healthier diet.  To book your place follow the link in my bio or visit www.meerabhogal.com/events or call us on 07950110574 or pop into the cafe and speak to Laura or Prash. #bethechange #education #knowledge #empowerment #sugar #obesity #diabetes #health #wellness #wellbeing #meerasmadefromscratchcafe #foodlabels #healthyeating
