PROGRAMME NOTES

This breakfast can be quickly and easily assembled when the ingredients have been pre-prepared and stored in the fridge. Enjoy for breakfast on Days 3 and 4.

NOTES

Bone broths are a wonderful gut healing food. The amino acids they contain strengthen the gut wall and help to repair any permeability issues. Having bone broth for breakfast might be a new idea, but we encourage you to embrace it. Janine enjoys bone broth every morning and she finds it very grounding. It’s become her favourite way to start the day!

INGREDIENTS

1 large sweet potato, peeled, chopped into chunks
½ a teaspoon of Himalayan salt
5 broccoli florets
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 generous handful of fresh herbs, finely chopped (such as coriander, basil, parsley, dill)
1/4 cup of coconut milk
1 clove of fresh garlic, grated
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of coconut aminos
1 tablespoon of olive oil

TO SERVE

Bestow Coconut Dressing

Makes approx. 8 fritters

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Place sweet potato and salt into a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil on stovetop and then simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add the chopped broccoli florets in the final five minutes. Once vegetables are soft, remove from the heat and drain the water. Mash or blend in the food processor the sweet potato, broccoli and add all other ingredients except olive oil. Shape handfuls into balls and flatten slightly. This recipe makes approximately 8 fritters.

These can be made ahead and kept in a sealed container in the fridge for a couple of days until cooking time. Once cooked, they can also be frozen.

When you are ready to cook, place  olive oil in fry pan and turn onto medium heat. Cook fritters on each side until browned. Alternatively bake them in the oven at 200 degrees celsius for 15-20 minutes.

Serve drizzled with Bestow Coconut Dressing.

PROGRAMME NOTES

This recipe makes approximately eight firtters – three fritters for breakfast on Day 5, two fritters for  Healing Bowl Day 5 lunch and freeze the reamining fritters for use after the programme.

NOTES

Believe it or not, the simple broccoli is a gut health hero. It quietly goes about its role supporting our digestive system without ever being labelled as a superfood, but that is exactly what it is. Broccoli reduces inflammation and is a key player in maintaining gut barrier function, supporting the gut’s response to contaminants and toxins.

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!
