Cauliflower Parsnip Soup

Roasted Cauliflower Parsnip Soup

This soup is a great light dinner on a cool evening. It is suitable for special diets such as vegan, paleo, gluten free and people with dairy allergies. In addition, cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin K, which acts as a direct regulator of our inflammatory response. Parsnips shine as a fiber source. They're high in soluble fiber, the type that helps lower cholesterol and keep blood sugar on an even keel.

Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad

Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad

A recipe from our Weight Management App that is loaded with many minerals, vitamins and is a thermogenic (metabolism-boosting) powerhouse. Cauliflower is an excellent source of thermogenic vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and even contains some choline. However, it's the sulfur compound called indole-3-carbinol (i3C) that gives cauliflower its thermogenic effects. Pomegranate contains many minerals and vitamins including potassium, magnesium, folate and a good dose of thermogenic vitamin C. Eating pomegranate fruit whole rather than in juice form, is most beneficial for weight loss.

Pho Recipe by Rebecca Wilson

Anti-inflammatory Pho Soup

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, Pho is an excellent anti-inflammatory, gut healing and (this version) is low FODMAP. Bone broth is a potent ingredient for anyone with gastro-intestinal disorders, or anyone who is healing muscle or bone injuries. Making your own broth is well worthwhile, and makes your home smell delicious. Warm soup may seem strange to eat for breakfast at first, but with the change of the seasons and cold weather approaching, your body will thank you.

Curried Squash and Ginger Soup

Turmeric, in all its beautiful yellow glory, is amazing for our health. This powerful antioxidant has been shown to reduce inflammation, and is a great addition to our daily diet. It can also be supplemented with curcumin, the active component within turmeric that gives it the beautiful rich colour it is known for. Research shows that in order to get the most benefit from turmeric or curcumin, however, it is important to add black pepper to the mix. A chemical within black pepper, called piperine, is known to increase the bioavailability (the amount of a nutrient our bodies can actually absorb and use) of turmeric up to 200 times.
