Tags: , ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

Your gut is the base of your health. When your digestion works well, the rest of your health will be well too.

In fact, we now know that when your gut and digestion are well, you are less likely to feel depressed as your gastrointestinal system is where most of your dopamine and serotonin are produced.

Happy gut = happy mood.

This simple soup recipe combines sweet turnips, potatoes, leafy greens and garlic for a powerful digestive aid.

It’s the kind of recipe we’ll be enjoying in my 8-week Cravings Cleanse! Click here to sign up – we start 2/12!

 

Turnip Leek Soup Vegan Soup Recipe

And it’s a perfect dinner on a chilly spring or winter evening.

 

Turnips aid the digestion, dissolve mucus, and are good for general detoxification. They’re also high in anti-carcinogenic glucosinolates.

Potatoes (be sure to get organic!) nurture stomach functions and help cool inflammation, except arthritic conditions.

Leeks support the movement of energy, or chi, throughout the body and are an excellent source of lutein, which protects your eye and cardiovascular health.

Chard treats the large intestines, stomach and cools overheated conditions. It’s also used to ease constipation in the elderly, and has anti-carcinogenic properties.

This soup is powerful!
