SPONSORED POST: I’ve partnered with Milk & Eggs, an amazing farm direct grocery delivery service, to bring you guys some delicious, super seasonal, and always healthy recipes a few times a month. I’m so excited to share some of my favorite dishes with you!
One of the most common health concerns I hear about from my clients is stomach troubles.. I’m not just talking about the serious, diagnosed kind, but rather just a feeling like something is off. From bloating and gassiness, to occasional stomach pain or just feeling crappy after a big meal or a wild night, digestive issues are so commonplace that we almost kind of take them for granted.
Our digestive system is a barometer for the state of our whole body. An out-of-balance digestive system can lead to emotional and psychological issues (heightened stress, anxiety, depression), nutrient malabsorption, headaches, skin problems, fatigue, and so, so, so much more. It’s the first place I look when a client comes to me with a myriad of mysterious and seemingly unrelated issues.
Healing the gut leads to healing throughout our whole body, so getting our gut to a happy place should be our number one health priority!
There are some basic rules to follow for gut health — most of which are just common sense general health rules: eat whole, high quality, organic foods; minimize heavy, greasy, or processed foods; go easy on the dairy and sugar; eat your biggest meals when your digestion is at it’s strongest (i.e.: midday). If you’ve been reading this blog or following me for a while, these are all old news.
But there are a couple more tricks I have up my sleeve to help you keep your stomach happy! Eating lots of great, fermented foods, favoring cooked greens over raw, and enjoying healing soups for dinner are all awesome, next-level strategies for getting (and keeping) your gut in a balanced, healthy place.
The recipes below, all made with delicious, seasonal, local, organic produce, most of which is from Milk & Eggs put these tricks into action, and will leave you feeling oh so good. For an awesome healing punch, eat all three in one day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) — perfect if you’re under the weather, hungover, or your stomach feels off! Or just include one of these recipes in your regular day of eating, to still get lots of great benefits.
In addition to my usual Milk & Eggs Organic Farm Sampler Box, which provides all the fresh, yummy produce I use in my recipes every week, I ordered Straus Family Creamery Organic Greek Yogurt, Farmhouse Culture Organic Saurkraut, and some Wild-Caught Fresh Halibut.
