This is one of my favorite soups. I could eat it every day, it’s so tasty and nutritious. A good soup does wonders for the body and soul. Soups offer a certain comfort that other foods lack. They’re also a vehicle for nutrient dense ingredients- especially if using homemade bone broth. A staple if you are on a gut healing journey. Bone Broth was part of my daily regimen when I was healing. You can read about my story here

Butternut squash is an excellent source of vitamin A and one of the healthiest starches you can get. It’s got a gentle sweetness to it which pairs well with a bold curry flavors and embraces the sweetness of apple. Apple and butternut squash naturally compliment each other. They’re harvested at the same time of year, they’re both high in fiber. When Fall comes around this is one of the first soups I whip up. It’s become a staple in my house and I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much.

1 Tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil

Who loves summertime? Ours is filled with fun weekend trips to the lake, days spent at the pool, and all around fun, but sometimes that means being tempted by the convenience of drive through's and not very healthy food. Here's an easy lunch or dinner idea that's healthy and delicious! I find that it really helps to plan a few easy recipes during this time of year so that I reduce the temptation of eating out. 

These are a perfectly satisfying comfort food loaded with flavorful and filling chicken. You don’t need to sacrifice your health to eat delicious food, you just need to get creative. 

Lettuce wraps are your new best friend, they’re versatile and you can fill a nice leaf of lettuce with whatever you fancy from chicken to shrimp, or ground beef. Whatever you fill it with, there’s just something about eating a wrap that screams comfort and indulgence.

Try these lettuce wraps next time you feel like ordering take-out or running through the drive-though.

Garlic and ginger are two of my most loved super foods with amazing health benefits. Our family incorporated the healing properties of both for colds, viruses, and stomach viruses when we used to get sick more often. We now use them simply because we enjoy the taste and the anti-inflammatory  properties of both. 

When we feel like we have a sickness coming on, these are both part of my regular routine of healing with food for just about any type of virus. 

We used both quite often while healing ourselves from leaky gut. Garlic was one of the foods I used to fight candida and ginger was great for digestion and acid reflux. If you aren't already incorporating these super foods, I highly recommend that you do.

Garlic is known to be a protector. It is antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal (including anti-mold), anti-parasitic, and rich in phytochemicals. Garlic alone is one powerful food.

Add the restorative properties of Ginger, which is great for stress-related illnesses such as ad...

This salad is delightfully nourishing and gives you all the benefits of kale, without the digestive distress. When you massage kale you break down some of the tough fibers in the cell wall that make raw kale hard to digest.  

When our family started eating healthy we couldn’t digest kale very well. It upset everyone's digestion and I didn’t get what all the fuss was about. If this happens to you the solution is to either steam your kale or massage it. This recipe is one of my favorites because you still get all the amazing benefits of raw kale: the enzymes, magnesium, and vitamin C .

Massaging nourishing oil and lemon juice into the kale also help make the nutrients more bioavailable and easier to assimilate and digest. Plus, it tastes delicious and can be paired with grilled chicken or fish for a classic healthy meal. This is by far one of my kids favorite salads- and they haven't always been salad eaters.

1 bunch kale, chopped 

1 large lemon, juice...
