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.

Apple and Kale Stuffed Turkey Breast

Looking for an alternative to cooking a whole turkey, try stuffing a turkey breast roast with local seasonal apples and nutrition rich kale.

Turkey is an excellent source of protein, which will help to prevent dessert induced blood-sugar crashes. Kale promotes regular digestion, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating, and the pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. So enjoy this healthy alternative with your family and friends this Thanksgiving weekend.
