Eating the wrong food after your detox can rob you of your health. We gave you breakfast recipes yesterday and today we re moving on to lunch. These recipes are very nutritious and are quick and easy to whip up.
It’s important to know that by simply consuming coconut oil on a daily basis, you’ll also be giving your metabolism a boost, increasing your energy levels naturally and improving your digestive health.

Recipe 3 – Roasted cauliflower with cumin, coriander and almonds
1 head cauliflower, outer green leaves removed, broken into florets
15 gr organic butter
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
2 teaspoons coriander seeds
1-2 dried red chillies
1 handful almond slivers (soaked and dried)
zest and juice of 1 lemon
Serve with fresh green leaves of your choice, chickpeas and/or black sesame seeds.
Preheat your oven to 200C. Blanch the cauliflower in salted boiling water for a couple of minutes then drain in a sieve, allowing it to steam dry (you don’t want any water left in your cauliflower or it won’t roast properly). Toss it in a generous amount of coconut oil and the butter. In a pestle and mortar, bash your spices and chillies with a pinch of salt and put in a hot, dry ovenproof pan to slowly toast them. After a couple of minutes, add the cauliflower. When it gets a nice bit of colour on it, add the lemon zest and juice and mix around well. Toast for about a minute longer then put the pan into the preheated oven for about 15 minutes to crisp up. Sprinkle with the almond slivers.
