24-hour yogurt sauce

Most of us know we should eat more 24-hour yogurt. After all, it’s one of the most powerful gut healing foods: each tablespoon of properly prepared yogurt contains 700 BILLION CFUs per cup.

That’s a lot of probiotics.

With that in mind, I challenged myself to come up with some new ways to eat 24-hour yogurt. (I also had a freezer full of ground meat from hunting over the fall and winter.) The result? Gut-Healing Greek Meatballs with 24-Hour Yogurt Tzatziki sauce.

This recipe sounds fancy, but even my kids ate it. (Maybe because they like anything you can dip!) [click to continue…]

nut-free, grain-free blueberry muffins

Was there a “special breakfast” you ate growing up or always made for your kids?

Whether it was Mother’s Day Brunch, Easter, or my birthday, for my family’s “special breakfast” we always had blueberry muffins.

And while I don’t encourage eating baked goodies on a daily basis, eating them for a week straight isn’t likely to hurt your gut and likely may help your emotional body. So if you make them, I hope you enjoy them without shame or blame or concern. [click to continue…]

Tell me if this has ever happened to you…

You see a recipe that looks amazing. You click on it, fingers crossed.

Will the ingredients all work for me?

One by one, you read them, getting more and more excited. And then, there it is: some food you just cannot eat, ruining the entire recipe for you.

And I’m not talking about conventional recipes. I mean when you’re already looking at healthy recipes and they still don’t work for you!

I know I’m being a little dramatic here, but when you’re eating a restricted diet, it can be incredibly frustrating to try to find new recipes that work.

And when boredom with the recipes you do have sets in, you’re more likely than ever to stray from eating the foods that support your health and make you feel your best.

That’s why, today, I want to talk about modifying recipes to work for your healthy gut diet. [click to continue…]

How to make your own gut-healthy chocolate

Having a healthy go-to treat is serious business.

I’m talking about something you can enjoy that won’t set you back 3 days (or more) on your healing journey.

It could be the difference between staying on the right track or completely falling off the wagon (and contemplating never getting back on).

A healthy treat shouldn’t be too much to ask for, but often times it is.

And we don’t want it to be the reason you experience a dreadful setback.

Our dark chocolate recipe meets all the criteria of an amazing treat: simple, versatile, gut-healthy and delicious.

There’s nothing else like it… warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven.

(Hey, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy a cookie sometimes! After all, delicious food is one of life’s greatest pleasures.)

Even if you’re following a healthy gut, grain-free diet like SCD or paleo, you shouldn’t have to give up the occasional cookie.

But here’s the problem: a lot of gut-healthy, grain-free recipes rely way too much on one ingredient that may be holding you back from healing: nut flour.
