In recent weeks I have commenced The Gut Healing Protocol by Kale Brock. I have always had a bit of an issue with my guts - I am significantly intolerant to gluten and dairy and not great with legumes or too many grains. This is one reason I stopped being vegetarian as there are a lot of plant things I don't digest well. This is something I will talk more about another time. For now, it's about getting my gut happier. Lately it's been a tad irritable and this effects my skin and hormones. If I want another baby I need balanced hormones! With the trials of motherhood, namely sleep deprivation, I didn't realise how much sweet stuff has crept into my diet and it's just not good for me.
My big challenge is having smoothies without fruit! The following recipes I have created using root vegetables instead.
Nut and seed milks are a great alternative to dairy and soya milk. They are raw and chock full of good quality fats, minerals and protein. Nut and seed milks make an excellent base for green smoothies as an alternative to plain water.
Nut and seed milks can be made two ways. The long way and the short way.
The short way is to blend nut butters with water for instant milk; the long way involves soaking nuts/seeds, blending them with water and straining the contents to separate the fibre from the milk.
That's what you will find here! Smoothies recipes, nutrition and handy smoothie making hints.
