If you're like us around here this morning, you had a fantastic Canada Day long weekend and are in need of some holistic anti-inflammatory love today.
We ate great food (and a lot of it), and enjoyed some gorgeous white and rosé wines from Prince Edward County. I've been wanting to go there for many years, and this weekend I finally went
with some of my favourite company; my very sweet in-laws and their toddler cutie, Ellie, and my love, Ryan.
We took stunning candid photos of the babe and us laughing, sat along the grape vines under a manic blue and mysteriously cloudy sky while listening to hits from the 80's. I was in heaven, especially when I found out they had gluten free pizza in their outdoor wood oven kitchen!
Though, with the wine, the pizza dough, and the stop-dead traffic on the 401 headed home (at 10:30pm!) I went to bed feeling depleted, stressed and know my body well enough to know that means inflammation is-a-surely comin'.
For me, inflammation is very different today than it was many years ago. I've done a lot of work to clean up my gut, repair digestive function and improve liver detoxification, so indulging a
little doesn't mean 3 days in bed. It means I get back on the horse, no guilt, no shame and eat a bowl rich in nutrients that aid liver detox.
So I do.
Today, I'm opting for this Anti-Inflammatory Green Smoothie Bowl to come to the rescue and I hope you do, too!
This Anti-Inflammatory Bowl is delicious, super easy and is suitable for both phases (Detox + Low FODMAP) of our 12-Week Gut restore Program and is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and refined sugar free. There are versions below for a Low FODMAP recipe as well!
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend for 30 seconds to a minute. Let sit for 10 minutes in the freezer to thicken up while you prepare your topping ingredients.
Once all topping ingredients are prepped, place on top and snap a photo for your Instagram before you gobble it all up.
From my whole-food based, non-judgemental, all-about-balance kitchen, to yours...
Happy Anti-Inflammatory eating!
