The workshop covers breakfast recipes, ranging from juices, smoothies, oatmeal to ice cream. It’s the most important meal of the day not only because it fuel us with energy for the day, it also help us to break the long fast our body went through during while we are asleep.True indeed, as Jonathan, the trainer for the workshop has mentioned that since our body is on a fasting mode for several hours, it is only wise to replenish your body with vital nutrients obtained from living foods. It do your body more good than harm as compared to local traditional breakfast items like bacon, ham or fried noodles.
Sampling fresh juices made using the Green Star juicer, which is also sold at Fit for Life Centre.
The Green Star juicer is a twin gear juice extractor which crushes every bit of the plant cells to obtain that pure juice which is naturally enriched with vitamin, minerals and enzymes. What is left after the juice extraction is a dry fibrous pulp. Unlike commercial centrifugal juicers, these cold-pressed juicers ensure a maximum yield of unheated fresh juices with live enzymes which contains so much more nutrients than any other regular juices sold at the hawker food centre in Singapore.
There has also been a recent fad of going for cold-pressed juice cleanses in Singapore but a bottle of organic cold-pressed juice can cost up to $10! It’s definitely more economical to simply buy a juicer back home to make healthy juices for yourself.
With the Green Star, you can even make nut milk and ice cream! But during this workshop, they showed us how to make almond milk using a mini blender. This dairy-free alternative is not only tasty but also easier for the body to digest. It’s great for those who are lactose-intolerant.
We also taught how to make breakfast oatmeal which is refrigerated overnight for the oats to get soften.
This simple recipe is so easy to follow that I’ve been almost eating overnight-soaked oatmeal almost every other day for breakfast. All you will need to do is to soak oatmeal and chia seeds in honey water along with any sliced fruits of your choice.
Mango-banana chia seed oatmeal with honey
It’s cold,refreshing and filling too! It tasted almost like a dessert.
Lastly, we were shown how powerful and versatile Green Star is as a juicer and an ice cream maker as it churns out cold and creamy pure fruit ice cream ‘sorbets’.
Made using 100% mangoes with no added sugar or milk. This is how we should enjoy our sweet treats!
Packs of frozen durian were taken out of the freezer to be stuff right into this Green Star machine.
A slurry of durian ice cream… yum!
