Our gut is a powerful biochemical reactor, capable of almost magically transforming the plants and animals of nature into the building blocks of our body: the carbohydrates, proteins and fats, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to run all the metabolic reactions that promote health and prevent disease.
Root veggies are making a comeback as “clean carbohydrates”. They satisfy our need for energy, while providing an alternative to the dizzying array of refined carbs. Because root veggies are rich in fiber, they help fight hunger and stabilize blood sugar, preventing late night cravings. And of course, they’re free of gluten!
As the air turns crisp, it’s natural to crave our favorite comfort foods. Instead of reaching for mac’n cheese, gather the ingredients to make this mouthwatering soup. Then, while you’re binge-watching your favorite show, you’ll feel guilt-less pleasure with a bowl of warm soup in hand. Be sure to make enough to freeze for those cold nights ahead when you’re too tired to cook!
This modern take on the classic “hash” dishes up two servings of colorful veggies in a golden sauté that’s ready in minutes. Save time by prepping the onion and microwaving the potatoes the night before so they’re ready for the skillet when it’s time to cook. These potatoes are teeming with flavor, flavonoids and keep your blood sugar stable all morning long. This is something that could be made in a bigger batch on a Sunday afternoon for weekday mornings to come. Yum!
