Carrot Cake Cookies

You know the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Times are changing people, because I think it is the carrot that really takes the cake. Pun intended. I eat carrots every single day—mostly because they can help normalize healthy gut bacteria and even balance hormones. The addition of carrots to these cookies not only provides valuable added nutrition, but incredible moisture and sweetness as well. With 5 grams of satiating protein and nearly 30% of your recommended daily allowance for vitamin A, you can’t go wrong with these sweet little treats. Perfectly portioned and just lightly sweet, these are perfect for that mid-afternoon slump.

5 Simple Ways to Eat Healthier Today

Spring is one of the best times of year to start eating healthier.  There’s that certain feeling in the air that makes us crave change and new beginnings.  The first quarter of the year (and New Year’s resolution energy) is behind us accompanied with the realization that swimsuit season is coming – making it a great time of year to revisit your health and nutrition goals.

But when it comes to eating healthier, it doesn’t always mean that you have to completely overhaul your diet.  In fact, when working with clients, I find most often, they just need new ideas.  They want an action plan that gest them out of a rut and focused on eating clean.

Shredded Pork and Cabbage

Even though I am not Irish (my red hair, green eyes and freckled face fools many), I have always had a soft spot for Irish cuisine. And this recipe, with its flavorful, shredded pork and bright crunchy cabbage, not only fulfills my continuous hankering for some Irish grub, but it is SO darn easy. All you have to do is throw the ingredients in a slow cooker and just a few hours later, you have yourself a delicious and nutritious meal. As an added plus, this recipe is taken straight from the pages of our GUT.FIX Program , so it’s compliant with both healing the gut and for those that are participating in our D.TOX program. Try it and you will love it.
