During the winter months it is good to do as much gut healing as possible.
The gut, or the digestion system, is the most important system of the body. If it doesn’t function properly, symptoms can range from brain fog to IBS or many immune diseases, it is not just about an upset tummy. Dr.’s like Dr. Tom O Bryan understand that everything is impacted from the brain to everything else health wise.
I like to make bone broth during the winter and keep it in the fridge for those days when I need a good protein but just haven’t time to cook.
This keeps my gut clean off processed foods that may hurt my gut flora.
With this in mind, I am going to share a few recipes to help with gut health.
Hope these will work well for you.
Foods good for healing the gut are: Celery, parsley, chard, kale, cucumbers, chia seeds and ginger.
Homemade Bone Broth:
1 organic chicken
8c distilled water
5 stalks celery
½ a yellow or sweet onion, chopped
1 Tbs. fresh parsley
1-inch fresh ginger, finely chopped, (I use a grater and grate it.)
½ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. cider vinegar, (trust me)
Slow cook over 8 hours.
(I like adding kale to this because it adds vitamin k and a lovely depth of flavor.)
Gut Healing Smoothie:
1 cup almond milk or cashew milk
¼ tsp. probiotic, 100 bil. Units
1 scoop (5000mg) L-Glutamine
6 stalks of kale
½ cup frozen blueberries or raspberries
2 tbs. rice protein
1 tbs. chis seeds that have been soaked in water until they gel.
Every morning drink Aloe Vera with water and lemon.
