Thailand is famous for its smiles, sunny beaches and delicious cuisine.
But like everywhere in the world…
Thailand’s food habits are changing.
Every year, more people are being dragged to the darkside of fast food and processed junk.
But right now, they still have HALF the amount of overweight people compared to the Western world (one third compared to two thirds in Western countries).
They also have only 1 in 10 with blood sugar issues, compared to over a THIRD in the US (although 4 in 5 of those people don’t even know it).
A lot of Thailand’s healthier people has to do with their food, which is high in vegetables and relatively low in factory farmed meat.
This Tofu Pad Thai dish (feel free to use chicken or pork if you prefer) is packed with shallots, coconut oil, carrots, garlic peanuts and bean sprouts.
So it’s rich in flavor, packed with gut enriching nutrition and has ZERO processed inflammatory ingredients.
Know what’s one of the biggest causes of poor gut health?
Yet another COMMON cause of poor gut health is lack of fiber.
Processed grains, like white rice and white pasta, have had all the fiber drained from them.
Leaving you with white carbs that turn straight into glucose in the bloodstream and SKYROCKET your blood sugar levels.
Let’s fix that.
My Roasted Miso Potatoes dish gives you a sweet tasting health bomb of fiber, with which to feed your gut microbes…🍠😀
Fiber that stays in your digestive tract and unleashes a flood of gut enriching benefits.
Even better, my Roasted Miso Potatoes dish is super quick and easy to make.⏲️
Simply slice and dicing some sweet potatoes…🍠
Drizzle them in a sweet tasting white miso, yogurt and rice vinegar sauce…
And then shove in the oven.
A happier, healthier gut awaits:)
Did you know that rather than a vegetable…
Aubergines (eggplants) are actually a fruit?
Why? Because they grow from a flowering plant and contain seeds.
More importantly, eggplants are SUPER gut healthy!
They’re nutrient-dense, high in fiber and PACKED with antioxidants!
In fact. some studies suggest they can help combat chronic diseases, like heart diseases and high blood sugar.
So naturally, I had to put together a recipe with aubergine as the hero ingredient.
My Roasted Aubergine and Tomato Stew recipe also contains onions, cherry tomatoes and chickpeas…
And cooking it is as easy as throwing the chopped ingredients in a baking dish and leaving in the oven.
Quinoa is the supergrain of the future.🌾🧡
Awareness is fast rising that we need to eat less factory farmed meat…
For the sake of our health, the environment and animal welfare.🐮
This means getting protein from other sources.🏃♀️
One day, this could involve eating more protein packed bugs (most likely in powdered form).🐛
But until that day arrives, quinoa is one of the most protein rich foods around.🌾
What’s more, quinoa has almost DOUBLE the fiber of most other grains.
It’s also rich in iron, magnesium and Riboflavin.
So it’s arguably the most gut healing grain around, along with a powerful source of protein.
In my Quinoa Tabbouleh recipe, you’ll also find juicy tomatos, fresh cucumber, bell pepper and red onion…🍅🥒
Combined with finely chopped herbs and a drizzle with lemon juice.
So it’s a deliciously cooling dish, perfect for the hot days of summer.
And quantifiably gut healing in many different ways.🥗🧡
