INGREDIENTS

1 beetroot
1 tablespoon of coconut yoghurt, unsweetened (dairy free)
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Plus Oil
Himalayan salt

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Wrap beetroot in tinfoil and roast for 45 minutes. Leave until cool.

Peel the skin off, roughly chop and place in blender along with other ingredients. Blend on high until fully combined. Alternatively, use a stick blender.

Dollop on food as is, or thin down with water to make a dressing. Refrigerate for up to three days.

PROGRAMME NOTES

Use with Healing Bowl Day 6.

NOTES

Beetroot and coconut both contribute hugely to digestive and gut health. Beetroot is high in fibre and phosphorus which is a key digestive aid. Phosphorus stimulates the absorption of riboflavin and niacin from the B-vitamin family, which fortifies the intestines and digestive tract. Coconut boosts nutrient absorption and helps to seal the lining of the digestive tract.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups coriander or basil, stalks and all (1 pot from the supermarket)
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Plus Oil
Himalayan salt to season

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Place ingredients into a blender and blend until fully combined.

PROGRAMME NOTES

Use with the Loaded Fries with Chicken and Pesto dinner and Healing Bowl Day 2 lunch.

You will make it again in the second half of the programme where it is used in the Colourful Veggie Tray Bake dinner and Healing Bowl Day 7 lunch.

 

NOTES

We recommend you keep fresh herbs in the fridge as this makes them last longer. Coriander (sometimes known as cilantro) has well-known digestive properties and has a calming and anti-inflammatory affect in the intestinal tract. It also helps to prevent a build up of gas, reducing bloating and flatulence.

INGREDIENTS

2 servings

1 carrot, peeled and grated
1 apple, cored and grated
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 tablespoons of coconut thread
1 tablespoon of raisins or sultanas
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of raw honey
½ a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
½ a teaspoon of ground ginger

TO SERVE
1 tablespoon of coconut yoghurt (dairy free)
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Plus Oil

Suitable for:
Breakfast

METHOD

Place all the ingredients except for the olive oil in a bowl and mix well. Heat olive oil in a large frypan for a couple of minutes at med-high heat. Add the mixed ingredients and sauté until soft and fragrant (5 – 10 minutes).

PROGRAMME NOTES

Serve half warm with yoghurt  and Bestow Beauty Plus Oil. Place the other half in a sealed container in the fridge for breakfast on Day 2. We put ours in a glass jar along with the yoghurt and Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, so that we can easily take a portable breakfast to work if we wish to.

It’s a good habit to zest your lemon before you use it and save the zest to add extra flavour to any meal. Lemon zest is a tasty addition to this breakfast.

NOTES

This is one of our favourite breakfasts, as it is equally delicious served warm straight away or eaten cold the next day. It is so easy and you can really mix and match ingredients for variety. Simply use carrot as the base and then add fresh fruit (banana works nicely as it caramelises), dried fruit and spices. It tastes like a dessert and is a sweet treat you can enjoy that isn’t detrimental to your gut health!
