Sunflower seeds are a fabulous source of fibre. Fibre helps regulate blood sugar levels in the body, as well as cholesterol.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
On rimmed baking tray, spread out sunflower seeds in a single layer. Toast in oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and light brown, about 10 minutes.
While seeds are warm, transfer to food processor fitted with steel blade attachment. Add syrup, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Process, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until mixture transforms into a smooth paste. Be patient, as this will take about 10 minutes. Add a little coconut oil if needed. Transfer to airtight jar and keep refrigerated for up to 1 month.

This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce.

If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
