Because I work with so many specialty diets and have lots of clients on healing diets like AIP and SCD currently, I wanted to play with food a little bit and bring some delicious healing dishes to the normally uneventful varieties usually available. This is a success for regular eaters as well as those more "variety-challenged". In particular this recipe I designed for AIP, but it's super simple to accomodate it to my SCD readers, just don't add the sweet potato.
This recipe is also great for those following weight loss, paleo, or keto diets that are low carb as the typical bread crust has been replaced with cauliflower and coconut. (no you can't taste the coconut).
They're great because they can be free of additives, be pure food, and since they are pureed, they are easy on a sensitive digestive system while still containing those coveted enzymes we look for in fresh raw fruits and vegetables. Well, baby food can get old real fast, so I played with a variety of flavors to "grow them up" a little bit.
This grown up peach puree is a favorite of mine as it's cool and refreshing, and with a hit of ginger is calming to the belly. The tastes are more mature and you don't feel like an overgrown baby eating it....I promise.
They are so simple to make and they make a good healthy grab and go breakfast, or snack all throughout the week. I make them all up on a weekend, and then store them, covered in individual glass dishes, taking one out each day.
Anything I can do to make my meals simple and easy throughout a busy week is awesome in my book!
Soups are a great way to combine raw with cooked enzyme rich vegetables, easy digestion, and encouraged plant nutrition throughout the day. Focusing on choosing a soup or salad for lunch reduces the need to develop creative meals throughout the day and lets you focus on leaving one meal of the day for recipes using meat and congestor foods: supper. Plus, it's easy to whip up a couple different soups over the weekend and portion out servings throughout the week without having to cook each day. Time saver, nutrient dense, plant based = perfection!
