New to Elevated for January 2024

Brilliant Bases Soda Bread - Elevated Premium Recipes

Happy New Year from us here at Elevated – we hope you’re not nursing too much of a hangover! 
 
January is naturally a time when people look to start the New Year with a resolution about a health kick. We’re firm believers that the best time to start getting healthy is right now, so if the New Year sees your starter gun being fired, we’ve got you covered.

This month we have a series of quick, fuller for longer recipes that don’t necessarily focus on calorie restriction but are hearty, healthy, full of flavour and designed to keep you going for most of the day..
 
Given January 25th is also Burns Night, Jason has also woven a Celtic thread throughout this month’s new recipes.

Let’s take a look then at what our subscribers get this month.

New Brilliant Base: our take on an Irish soda bread

Super quick and easy to make but also denser than regular bread, a slice of this will certainly help fill you up when accompanied with any of our other dishes this month. In fact, this is so easy to make, Jason has even taught it to a group of students with special needs in the past.

We’ve also added wholemeal flour here to increase the fibre content and, given it’s yeast free, it’s better for those with yeast intolerances.

That soda bread comes to the fore in the first of this month’s dishes: a fabulous Scotch Broth as a warming soup, either as a starter or a main course. It’s high in protein thanks to the lamb and in fibre thanks to the pearl barley it contains. We’ve made it in one pot and used minced lamb and finely diced root vegetables to speed up the cooking time, and we’ve used our Brilliant Base Bone Marrow Broth to increase the protein content of the dish.

Smoked trout with soda bread and roast beets

Ready in less than 30 minutes, even when baking your own soda bread, this beautiful dish featuring smoked salmon and mineral rich roast beets is an incredible protein-packed snack or starter. Jason has also come up with a great way of cooking those beets to keep them packed with flavour and high in nutritional content.

Elevated pot au feu

Our final dish for the month is this classic French offering from the north of the country that takes its name (pot on the fire) from it being cooked in a stock pot that is continually on the boil. This is actually two dishes in one given you can drink the soup first (think a super rich bone broth) followed by a main course of ox cheek which is the protein in the dish. It’s a hard-working cut that becomes super tender when slow cooked, but is high in protein and packed with vitamins and minerals.

Good Fats - Elevated Premium Recipes

This month’s Club Elevated content

If you’re planning on calorie counting, want a better idea of what the three macronutrients (protein, carbs and fats) are, or want a simple method to know how much to eat each day without wanting to weigh out all your food, we have you covered in this month’s Club Elevated.

James has penned five articles for you with the lowdown on Protein, Vegan protein, Healthy Fats, Smart Carbs and Veggies.
