Clean Eating on Bonfire Night
The clocks have changed, the weather has cooled and the dark, chilly evenings will soon light up with noisy firework displays around the UK!
On the 5th November, 1605, Guy Fawkes was arrested whilst guarding a pile of explosives beneath the House of Lords (the upper house of Parliament in London, UK). This arrest foiled a conspiracy by a group of English Catholics to assassinate King James I of England, a Protestant king. From that day on, the public have celebrated the king’s survival with an evening of bonfires and fireworks.
It can be difficult to eat well at public celebrations, with burger vans and doughnut stalls touting their wares. But these tempting clean eating bonfire night recipes should keep you warm on those chilly evenings!
Clean Eating Bonfire Night Recipes:
Meat-free days don’t have to be boring! Vibrantly orange butternut squash, clashing with the deep, fiery red hues of the sauce, this gluten-free, vegetarian chilli looks as good as it tastes. Smoked paprika adds an exciting undertone to a very satisfying dish, and it’s economical too!
This dish is full of flavour, pearly haricot beans coated in a glossy, slightly sweet and garlicky tomato sauce with succulent, melting pork belly. Serve spooned over crispy skinned jacket potatoes and you might never look at your tinned convenience beans the same way again.
These nuts are a special treat and are the perfect way to warm up on a chilly day. As the hot paprika spiced maple syrup cools, the roasted nuts are coated in a sticky, amber caramel; sweet with a hint of salt and spice. Good food has never tasted better!
Eating clean doesn’t have to mean doing away with life’s little treats. For those of you with a sweet tooth, this oozing, sticky, refined sugar-free, crumble should hit the spot. The apples are sweetened with pure maple syrup which means that the topping doesn’t need the large amounts of refined sugar used in traditional recipes.
