NOURISH YOUR GUT - BOOST TOTAL WELLBEING - FEEL AMAZING

I'm a great believer in supporting your body's natural healing process through the foods you eat. Over the coming month during our 28 DAY GUT HEALTH CHALLENGE, I will be sharing gut-healing foods and recipes that will nourish the digestive system, energise the body, reduce bloating and help you feel fantastic. The essential component to the challenge is our new Everyday Greens

Healthy Chef Everyday Greens is a delicious + delicate blend of organic green superfoods combined with probiotics + L-Glutamine to support gut health. This low FODMAP blend is loaded with nutritionally dense greens to support healthy digestion.

Everyone can benefit from doing the 28 Day Gut Health Challenge regularly!

The benefits you will enjoy by partaking in the 28 Day Gut Health Challenge, include:

  • Increased energy + vitality.
  • Improved digestive health.
  • Improved sleep + stress management.
  • Improved lifestyle habits.
  • Boosted immunity + gut function.
  • Healthy, glowing skin.

 

Below is what MY day looks like when I need to revitalise my gut health and get myself back on track. I see it as an opportunity to press the reset button nutritionally!

You can also find inspiration in my cookbooks Purely DeliciousEarth To Table and my Ultimate Body Shaping Guide. 

Take control of your gut health today! 

 

ON WAKING:

A large glass of filtered water with 2 teaspoons of EVERYDAY GREENS. This helps to soothe my digestion, so I feel less bloated.

MORNING MATCHA

I enjoy MATCHA TEA every single morning just after my morning walk. It helps me to feel energised, focussed and calm. Matcha Tea has more health benefits than other tea varieties because the leaves are still growing when they are harvested. This means that when the leaves are picked, the plant is actively producing compounds like chlorophyll and amino acids. Matcha Tea is also rich in polyphenols which support healthy gut flora. So if you're serious about supporting your gut and detox pathways, high-quality Matcha is your go-to-tea! See my recipe for Matcha here

BENEFITS: Antioxidant-rich, Energy-boosting, Calming 

 BREAKFAST

My favourite fruits to add to smoothies are kiwi fruit, oranges, papaya and bananas. These fruits are fibre-rich and contain inulin, a substance that stimulates the growth of good bacteria. They also improve motility and infuse the body with antioxidants and restorative minerals.

My go-to gut-healing smoothies are my Kiwi Fruit Smoothie and Detox Papaya Smoothie. If you need to soothe and calm your gut a smoothie made from water, banana, tahini and Healthy Chef Protein is ideal. 

BENEFITS: Gut-soothing, High-fibre, Antioxidant-rich

 LUNCH

Nourishing soups are my go-to for lunch and dinner because they are easy to digest, warming and satisfying. My favourite soups are 

my 2 Ingredient Potato SoupCollagen Rich Miso SoupImmune Boosting Congee and my Roasted Pumpkin + Carrot Soup from my plant-based cookbook Earth To Table.

BENEFITS: High-fibre, Antioxidant-rich, Nourishing 

AFTERNOON SNACK

I try not to snack too much during the day, but if I'm feeling peckish, I'll make my Goodness Shake - simply mix a few tablespoons of Healthy Chef Protein with water and a splash of almond milk to get me through until dinner. I also love mixing a spoonful of prebiotic-rich Organic Superfood into yoghurt for a delicious probiotic bowl. Healthy Chef Everyday Greens and Organic Superfood are excellent sources of probiotics and prebiotics to support overall wellbeing and gut health. Try my  Goodness ShakeGolden Glow Biss Balls or a warming Turmeric Latte.  

BENEFITS: Energy Boosting, High-protein, Antioxidant-rich

Gut health is paramount to your overall health and wellbeing. Research shows that our gut flora performs pivotal roles in metabolism, nutrient digestion, absorption and synthesis, as well as immune function, hormonal regulation and disease prevention. 

DINNER

I like to keep it light for dinner as well as warming and soothing for the gut. I'm in love with my Fish in Tomato and Ratatouille from my Purely Delicious Cookbook as well as my Detox Mung Bean Risotto and Roasted Cauliflower from Earth To Table. 

BENEFITS: Nourishing, Omega-3's, Antioxidant-rich

Avoid going to bed on a full stomach and try not to eat at least two-three hours before going to bed. Make a light vegetable soup or a shake for dinner using Healthy Chef Protein in preference to a heavy meal in the evenings.

NIGHTCAP

I like to end my day reading a book or watching a great show with a lovely chaiturmeric latte or a calming pot of Digest + Calm Herbal Tea. 

BENEFITS: Soothing, Antioxidant-rich, Relaxing.

Turmeric and Ginger have long been used in Ayurvedic medicine because of their anti-viral and antispasmodic properties. I love sipping on a warming Turmeric Latte or Chai Latte to calm and nourish my digestive system.
