3 Recipes to Calm Inflammation & Heal Your Gut

The gut is the foundation of your body. It is not just what you are eating, but what you are absorbing and that all goes back to the health and function of your digestive system. Foods are just one of the many ways that we can support our gut and what an empowering way to take your health back, one bite at a time. Here are three of my favourite recipes for supporting gut and reducing inflammation.

 

 

1. Bone Broth

 

Bone broth is all the rage right now and so it should be. Rich in collagen, vitamins and minerals, it's gut healing properties go far beyond the call of duty. With it's easily digestable nutrients, collagen aids in the healing of the gut lining and supporting hair, skin, nails and bones are just the icing on the cake.

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 pounds of meat bones 

  • 5 litres of water

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 3 cups onion chopped

  • 3 cups celery chopped

  • 3 cups carrots chopped

  • 1/2 tsp black peppercorns

  • 1/2 tsp salt

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° 

  2. Place cut up bones on baking tray and bake for 45 minutes to brown the bones. This will give your broth more flavour. 

  3. Place bones in a slower cooker or pot, add water and remaining ingredients.

  4. If using a pot, bring to a boil and skim off foam, but leave floating fat. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-48 hours. The longer you cook the broth the richer the flavour will become.

  5. Once finished, let your broth cool slightly. 

  6. Strain and discard solids in a bowl through a colander and then pour into large mouth mason jars. Let your stock cool to room temperature. 

  7. Refigerate or freeze. 

Tip: Ask butcher to cut bones up so marrow is exposed

 

 

2. Cabbage Juice

 

Cabbage is high in l-glutamine an amino acid known as a muscle food. Since our gut lining is a muscle, cabbage is a great gut healer and digestive tonic. 

 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 head of cabbage

 

Method:

  1. Chop up head of cabbage and juice through a juicer. 

  2. If you do not have a juicer, blend cabbage and strain through a nut milk bag to get just the juice. 

  3. Store in fridge. Drink within 2 days.

 

 

3. Golden Milk

 

Golden milk is comforting with it's creamy texture and anti-inflammatory with the power of turmeric and ginger. Finish your day with a warm cup and a good read.

 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp ginger

  • pinch of black pepper

  • 1/2-1 tsp honey

  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil 

 

Method: 

  1. Warm almond milk in a pot over medium heat. Do not boil.

  2. Whisk in remaining ingredients

  3. Blend and enjoy.
