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!

INGREDIENTS

¼ of a pumpkin, cut into large segments, skin on
2 carrots, peeled and halved lengthways
1 sweet potato, peeled and halved lengthways
2 tablespoons of olive oil
½ an onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, grated
2 cm of fresh ginger, grated
2 cups of Chicken Bone Broth
1 cup of coconut milk (without thickeners or preservatives)
Himalayan salt to taste

To Garnish
Small handful of parsely, roughly chopped

2 servings

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees celsius and line a tray with baking paper.

Coat pumpkin, carrot and sweet potato in oil, spread out on tray and roast for 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside too cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the skin from the pumpkin.

Add onion to frypan with one tablespoon of olive oil and cook over a low heat until translucent. Add garlic and ginger and gently fry for another two minutes. Add Chicken Bone Broth and bring to the boil. Turn down to a simmer and add the roasted veggies, mashing them gently. Add the coconut milk, simmer for 10 minutes and then turn off heat.

Once cooled, add to a food processor or blender (we use a stick blender) and mix until smooth. Alternatively, you could just mash it. Add water if you need to thin the soup.

PROGRAMME NOTES

Divide into two portions. Reserve one portion in the fridge for lunch on Day 1 and freeze the second portion for dinner on Day 4.

NOTES

Roasting the vegetables draws out the natural sweetness of the root vegetables and gives this soup richer flavour. Coconut milk contains anti-microbial lipids, which helps to prevent an overgrowth of harmful microbes in the gut. It also contains caprilic acid, which helps to maintain a healthy gut flora.
