What do I do with this!? I tried a taste on its own and ws not liking the texture at all. I tried putting it in a lettuce wrap with meat.....eww. I'm not sure how I'm going to get it down. #advice#kimchi#help#gutfriendlyfood
Fermented food is proving very popular lately, and with good reason as it's kind on the gut and is super healthy, as well as tasting fabulous! I'm a huge Kimchi fan and use it in (and with) my weekly recipes regularly. Today I'd like to share one of my latest recipes for a lovely breakfast, brunch or light supper dish using Kimchi from @sainsburys - These Kimchi Pancakes are served with a delicious Chilli Dipping sauce and a side salad of salad greens and herbs. Perfect for a lazy brunch or a simple supper, they are cooked in a scant amount of oil for a healthier pancake option. If you want to check the full recipe go to Sainsbury’s Recipe Hub, link in my stories/bio’

Got some more pictures sent to us from our Gut Health VIP presentation last night 😀😀😀 Thanks for all of your lovely comments and feedback regarding the presentation and the night in general.
A lot of hard work goes into these events, and Morgan and myself are extremely grateful to you all for your support and faith that you show in us.
We want to get the message out there to the general public that health isn't necessarily black and white, there are credible options which we can all use to get healthier, and to reduce our risk of developing chronic diseases.
Central to our health is our gut health.
It can no longer be dismissed as rubbish by the ignorant.
There is far too much research now illustrating it's importance.
With your help and continued support, we want to play our part to educate our community about how to become healthier using a nutritional and naturopathic approach.
We think that is a message worth spreading.
It's too important not to.

I've always struggled with breakfast, it's the time of the day when im still half asleep and feel the most uninspired. This is why I lie in bed at night trailing Pintrest through various glorious and gorgeous smoothie recipes.
Last night I came across a Pumpkin Spice recipe and having made pumpkin for dinner the previous night, thought hey this ones for me! So here we are, an incredibly healthy and unbelievably tasty breakfast!
1 x frozen nana
1/3 cup cooked pumpkin
1/2 cup milk of choice
1/2 cup water
dash of mixed spice, cinnamon and nutmeg
Aunt Flo is arriving sometime this week, meh, I can feel my body craving sugar! All I want is a big fat chocolate! So to resist the urge I’m doing some research on what foods to incorporate into my diet to help stabilize my cravings and hormones. First up, my Tahini Raspberry Oats. This has got to be one of my FAVOURITE breakfasts! Its super easy to make and is packed full of healthy fats to help keep you fuller for longer.
A word of warning though, over night oats can be tough on the digestion. I leave my oats to soak over night for at least 12 hours as this makes to them easier to digest when eaten.
You will be able to tell if you have a weak digestional tract if 10-20mins after you have eaten them you start to feel fatigued.
Let me know if anyone you try them out and suffer from fatigue.
Lots of love, Lauren xXx
Fantastic health coaching session with ~ always positive and amazing Atif!
We spoke a lot about brain and neurological health and I can not stress this enough, but gluten is really something that should be eliminated. However, be careful with the substitutes and read labels carefully there is a lot junk in those products, it's trillions dollar industry. ❌No single dietary protein is a more potent trigger of neurological dysfunction and neurological autoimmunity than gluten, the protein found in wheat. ❌There are a dramatic increase in the number of people sensitive to gluten. Research shows gluten sensitivity has risen sharply in the last 50 years. The gluten you eat today is not the same grain it once was. ❌Gluten has been significant hybridized and demised over the years. Hybridization has created a 'new wheat' ⛔️that appears to trigger immune reactions, especially in the brain and nervous system. Deamidation, which is used by the food processing industry to make wheat water soluble, has been shown to cause a severe inflammatory process in people. ❌The criteria for diagnosing celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are either outdated or incomplete.🔬 HLA-DW2 and HLA-DQ8 celiac genotype are very limited and cannot be used as sole determinants of gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. Many people who do not have the genotypes still have severe reactions to gluten. ❌Second, many people with gluten sensitivity have silent celiac disease, meaning they do not manifest intestinal symptoms. Instead, the immune reaction to gluten is experienced in other tissues, such as the brain, thyroid, joints, skin. ❌Lastly, the most common are of non-intestinal manifestation of gluten sensitivity is the brain and nervous system. ❌Despite the research many physicians do not even understand celiac disease, much less concept such as non-celiac gluten sensitivity, silent gluten sensitivity, or extraintestinal manifestations of gluten sensitivity. Your average gastroenterologist is typically not aware of gluten reactions that do not cause in GI tract disturbances.
Pretty green. Today I learned how to pimp my miso with extras like orange, seaweed, ginger and sesame. Just add hot water. Congratulations to @clearspringuk on 25-years in the organic, vegan Japanese food business!
🙋🏼♀️ Hey guys! Im officially back from my 48 hr social media detox, and let me tell you. It was needed. 👩🏼💻I noticed on Friday morning as we were on our way to SoCal that I was getting stressed out, short tempered and overall just being a negative nancy in the car all because my computer was being slow and wouldn’t transfer the giveaway image i wanted post that morning! And before you ask, that’s my usual MO. Editing, emailing and posting content whilst in the car, driving around LA. (my husband being the driver of course) 👨🏽✈️ .
So, it was in that very moment of (slight) rage that i thought to myself, now is a better time than ever to switch off from my computer and instagram and just enjoy the people and things that surround me. 📱🙅🏼♀️ Stress, angst and anxiety are hugely linked to health problems, especially in the gut. Anxiety in particular is known to contribute to the growth of candida! SO even though my diet changes are of huge importance to me right now, so is my stress management. 💆🏼♀️ .
✨ I spent the last 2 days getting some really insightful information from a new book i purchased called ‘FOOD and HEALING’ by Annemarie Colbin. Although this book is a bit dated it talks about food in a way I had never known it to be. They cover the life force of food, food combining, preparations of food, food in relation to mood, why we get cravings, quantity vs quality and soo much more. Im already 1/3 of the way through and just want everyone i know to read this! 📖 If you’re looking for a new book to dive into, then this would be high on my list. 🙌🏼 .
🌱 Ok now to the bowl - this is a warm veggie bowl with spinach, mushrooms, and bell pepper that i cooked in @bonafideprovisions bone broth & mct oil (for that gut health.) I topped it with bee pollen, tahini, and radish sprouts served with a side of avocado and @farmhouseculture sauerkraut.
All the items in this bowl except the bone broth, tahini & bee pollen, were from my latest @milkandeggscom order. .

Sorry I havent been posting many recipes lately! Im tweaking my diet after christmas to encourage healthy bacteria growth in my gut. This means I'm really staying clear of ALL sweet recipes which I know people love aha but mostly i'm doing this because I particularly have issues with skin and I found after christmas; I ate dairy, gluten and sugar ( no good for me); my skin has just become so inflamed which anyone who deals with skin issues knows how hard this can be! To me this signifies a deeper problem in my gut that can only be dealt with by starving the beast of sugar ( goodbye all sweetness) which is known for feeding bad bacteria in your gut. Admittedly I want women to feel as if healthy eating is achievable and fun but I also don't want to do it at the expense of my own health; so my recipes will start following how I need my diet to be in order for my gut to heal. I understand that skin problems are not everyones concern so cutting out sugar in all forms competely may seem erratic but for me its always what allows my body to react and heal best from inflamation; which is most important to me 😊 so basically my recipes shall mostly just be sugar free, dairy free, gluten free- gut healing recipes until I feel like I have a handle on my health again xx

One of my ALL TIME FAVORITES 😋. Ginger Chicken Stir-fry. It's #paleo#aip#whole30 and #sibo friendly!!! It also tastes as good as it looks 😉
What you'll need:
1.5-2 lbs of Meat (I used chicken but it is also good with salmon or steak)
2-3 Fresh Broccoli Florets
1/2 cup Coconut Aminos
2 Egg Yolks
1 tbsp Grated Ginger Root
2 tbsp Coconut Oil *Extra add-on's you may like: cauliflower rice, scrambled egg pieces 🍳 ,cooked carrots 🥕
Start by heating up a large frying pan. Place 1 tbsp of coconut oil in the pan and melt. Add fresh grated ginger root and broccoli florets. Cook until the broccoli is a brighter shade of green.
Remove broccoli from pan and cook chosen meat. Cut the meat into small bite sized pieces. Remove meat from pan.
In a separate bowel, add two egg yolks and coconut aminos. Whisk together until blended. Add egg mixture to your empty, hot pan and stir constantly. The mixture will turn a lighter brown and start to thicken. Once thick add broccoli/ginger mixture and meat to the pan. Stir.
Cover pan and let simmer on low heat for 10 minutes or until broccoli is your desired texture. If you would like a rice substitute, add grated and cooked cauliflower rice. You can also add scrambled eggs and cooked carrots for a fuller stir-fry feel.
Eat and enjoy!! 🙌🏼 .
I love making healthy sweet treat recipes because I avoid refined sugar like the plague as it gives me soo many negative consequences that I dont find it to be a treat at all 😣 Thats why I make so many of these different yummy recipes because I also believe in moderation and enjoying indulgence here and there! My few rules when coming up with wholesome recipes are that it should be gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free and the ingredients used should be as close to the original wholefood as possible. Mostly I do this because im intolerant to dairy and gluten however I also find all these foods to be inflammatory so they could leave you feeling bloated and thats not the goal when eating healthy sweet treat recipes; so I personally leave them out of my recipes 😋 👍
