In our latest recipe book SAVOUR, vegetables are the heroes of every dish. This recipe is a special favourite because it’s simple, fast and delicious with the added bonus that you will never want to purchase supermarket wraps again! All our recipes are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free too.

At our recent conference Kevin (my husband) did all the catering from SAVOUR and made these wraps for 100 attendees!

They will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for several days so that you will have an easy meal at the drop of a hat. They can also be frozen for a later date.

SAVOUR RECIPE – TEN MINUTE ZUCCHINI WRAPS

Makes 4
2 zucchini, grated
1⁄2 teaspoon of Himalayan or sea salt
1 large egg, beaten
1⁄4 teaspoon of cumin, ground
1 1⁄2 tablespoons of rice flour
1 tablespoon of Italian parsley, chopped

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Sprinkle the grated zucchini with salt, stir and place in a sieve over a bowl. Rest for 5-10 minutes and then gently press to remove excess liquid.

Add the zucchini to a large bowl and mix in the remainder of the ingredients. Cover the oven tray with baking paper. Scoop about 1⁄2 cup of mixture and press down to form a thin circle about 10cm in diameter. Repeat for the remainder of the mixture.

Bake wraps for about 25 minutes, or until the wraps look crisp and brown around the edges. Let them cool for 10 minutes and then peel of the baking paper.
Top with your desired filling and wrap! Also great for using up leftovers or serving unfilled with soup.

With my 30th birthday approaching I felt it was time to begin looking after my skin better. I had struggled with acne since I was 13 and all the different products I had used in my search had left my skin dry, tight and lifeless. I had resigned myself to thinking that I would have acne for life but after I starting seeing a Holistic Beauty Therapist at Lox Spa I began to have hope.

I was introduced to the idea of treating skin from within with skin nutrients, and specifically the importance of Essential Fatty Acids. I had long since given up the idea of having beautiful, glowing skin and so was keen to give anything a go.

I began taking Bestow Beauty Oil and was surprised to notice a difference in my skin even in the first few weeks. My skin began to look more alive and felt more hydrated and supple. After being on Bestow Beauty Oil for some months I hardly recognised my skin and loved the silky feel of it.

Many years before, I had stopped letting anyone (including my husband) touch my face and I remember the exact moment that changed. I walked into the lounge and said to him, “You won’t believe how good my skin feels, touch it. He did and remarked how soft it was, a word I never dreamed I would hear used to describe my skin.”

jenny-barrow-5902

Jenny Barrow is an inspiration to all of us at Bestow HQ. She lives and breathes wellness and mindfulness and we have witnessed her extraordinary transformation from a severely congested acne-challenged skin to beautiful, clear skin which glows everyday.She is a vital part of our team, assisting Janine and working as a valuable skincare trainer and consultant.As a connoisseur of healthy food we were very interested to get Jenny’s feedback on the new Bestow Berry Beautiful smoothie booster.

I love having smoothies all year round so I was so excited to try the new Bestow Berry Beautiful. I quickly realised this was not just another superfood blend but a hero ingredient.

I have tried many blends and powders in my smoothies over the years but have found that they either have ingredients that are not desirable or have a terrible taste that needs to be ‘hidden’. This simple blend of fruit and other super-foods such as chia make for a powder that is incredibly good for me with no nasty ingredients or added sugar.

There is no need to hide it with other stronger flavoured ingredients as the berries are a beautiful flavour on their own and provide me with high amount of anti-oxidants, Vitamin C and other nutrients, essential for keeping my skin healthy and glowing.

The ground chia seed in the mix provide high quality fibre, helping to ensure a healthy bowel. For someone like me with a skin that is easily congested, I struggle to find powders or blends to add nutrients to my breakfast without compromising my skin, however I can confidently say that Berry Beautiful only provides my skin with the nutrients it needs and not unwanted congestion!

Since using Bestow Berry Beautiful in smoothies, porridge, overnight oats and mixed into yoghurt I have found that the added fibre has definitely helped improve the health of my bowel and my skin has continued to go from strength to strength with the nutrients it needs being provided daily.

THE BERRY BEAUTIFUL STORY | JANINE TAIT

janine-tait-circle01These days, it’s hard to imagine life without laptops, tablets and mobiles. But it was really only around ten years ago that these technologies became commonplace. I remember this time well because I was very alarmed by the amount of radiation we were suddenly exposed to.

I knew that radiation increased the amount of free-radicals we came in contact with and I knew that free-radicals eroded health and damaged skin. They break down collagen and speed up the ageing process.

My first instinct was to try and limit my exposure to technology. But the fact is, that running a business, even a wellness business, requires me to be around technology all the time. I soon realised I was not going to be able to significantly limit my exposure to free-radicals.

ANTI-OXIDANTS ARE VITAL FOR SKIN HEALTH

I needed a different approach. I decided to protect my body by increasing my anti-oxidant levels. Anti-oxidants are incredibly valuable compounds which neutralise free-radicals in the body. If I couldn’t limit the free-radicals, at least I could take in more anti-oxidants!

Berry Beautiful is my delicious solution to the problem of the free-radical exposure we have in our modern lives. It provides a super-anti-oxidant booster which empowers your body to protect itself from damage.

BERRY BEAUTIFUL INGREDIENTS

Did you know that the more bright and colourful fruits are the more anti-oxidants they contain? This is why berries are a brilliant source of anti-oxidants and why they form the base of Bestow Berry Beautiful.

BLACKCURRANTS contain high concentrations of anthocyanins, polyphenols, anti-oxidants and other bioactives. They have shown to be beneficial for the cardiovascular system, immune system, eye health, brain and gut health and kidney health.

BLUEBERRIES are high in anthocyanins, the colourful anti-oxidant pigments that give many foods their wonderful shades of blue, purple, and red. Anthocyanins are powerful protection against freeradicals and have an anti-inflammatory affect on the body.

CAMU-CAMU are a cherry sized berry from the Amazon which contain more vitamin C than any other food on the planet. They also contain carotenoids which protect your collagen fibres and other important skin structures from free-radical damage.


ACAI BERRIES are said to have the most anti-oxidants of any food on earth. They are also rich in healthy fats and dietary fibre and are believed to help control appetite hormones, increase energy, prevent heart disease and help with many metabolic functions.

POMEGRANATE
can help prevent or treat various disease risk factors, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, oxidative stress, hyperglycemia and inflammation. They have even been shown to provide anticarcinogenic effects.

BLACK DORIS PLUMS are rich in protective anti-oxidants and are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, folate and vitamin K. The phenols present in plums also help protect the essential fats in the neurons and cell membranes from free-radical damage.

CHIA-SEED FLOUR provides a gentle and nutritious source of soluble fibre to support clear skin through healthy bowel functioning. Chia is also a great source of omega-3 for healthy skin and zinc for healing.
Kelp grows in the ocean and provides a rich source of bioavailable minerals. It is also high in iodine which is vital for proper thyroid functioning and for maintaining a healthy weight.

Bestow Berry Beautiful has been produced in New Zealand and is Certified Organic by AsureQuality – an independent, government approved food certifying agency.

HOW TO TAKE IT

For best results you should take one teaspoon of Bestow Berry Beautiful everyday mixed into food or liquid.

The fresh, zingy flavour of black-currants and other fruits provide a delicious boost to your Bestow smoothie. It can also be mixed in with yoghurt, or simply added to juice or water.

Bestow Berry Beautiful should be stored in a cool, dark place and used within six weeks. It is great for children. We believe it to be safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding but it’s always best practice to check with your doctor or midwife.

BERRY BRAINPOWER SMOOTHIE

Make a beautiful breakfast smoothie containing Bestow Berry Beautiful and Bestow Beauty Oil to give you and your children a smart start to the day. These two Bestow super-foods provide the anti-oxidants, fats and proteins needed for optimum brain function and learning.

BERRY BEAUTIFUL FEEDBACK

lisa-van-dykLisa Van Dyk | Gloss Beauty Boutique

It’s a juggle getting two kids out the door on time every morning. I have been guilty of putting everyone else in my family first and have often missed out on breakfast myself. Berry Beautiful has helped me to change that. I have made a conscious effort to make a breakfast smoothie each day to which I add Berry Beautiful and Bestow Beauty Oil. I feel so much better for it and am glad to be doing something for me. I have more energy and know that I am doing my body a favour by having a vitamin C and anti-oxidant boost first thing in the morning.

simone-rose-1Simone Rose | Simone Rose Organic Face & Body

I work hard, train hard and have a daughter with special needs. I need lots of antioxidants to combat the free-radicals and cortisol my body produces and Berry Beautiful is perfect for this. I love it! I have been enjoying the healthy berry yumminess in my breakfast smoothie. I use almond milk, coconut yoghurt, kale, Bestow Beauty Oil, Bestow Beauty Powder, Bestow Cleanse Powder, Berry Beautiful and blueberries. I feel like I am doing my body a favour by giving it this powerful anti-oxidant boost.

Kylie Vandy | Kylie’s Beauty Clinic
I am totally sold on Bestow Berry Beautiful! It has become my favourite product from the Bestow range and my two children agree with me. For a three week period we had it every morning in our breakfast smoothie, along with Bestow Beauty Oil and Be Cleansed powder. We loved the vibrant berry colour and it really tastes like berries. After five days of using it my skin had a lovely radiance to it and I felt I had more energy. My son is 15 years old and gets the odd pimple on his nose, but during the three weeks he was taking Berry Beautiful he was was pimple free. I will definitely be recommending this product to all my skincare clients.
