If there’s one good thing you do for your body and gut health over the holidays (and we hope there’s more than one!) it should be to look after your gut. A clean, toned gut is the way to make them more of the holidays – more energy, less bloating; more nutrient absorption, less build-up of waste in your system. It’s hard though to maintain good gut habits over the silly season. That’s why I’ve written a gut guide that’s packed with hacks. As a nutritionist, I make it easy for you with real-life tips, real-world information, real food that’s really good for your gut. And it really is totally free!
Heirloom carrots are probably one of my favorite sights when gathering seasonal produce. I love their spirally little bottom roots like tendrils, luscious green tops and the remarkable amount of color they can add to a dish. They’re such a treat to roast, and this recipe preserves their full form and flavor, elevating them with caramelized rice malt syrup. This is the perfect dish for a shared table at a gathering.
