1. Moroccan Cranachan

Cranachan is a Scottish dessert usually composed of whipped cream, toasted oats, whisky, and raspberries. This version of  Moroccan Cranachan by Celine Steen combines yogurt with the cream and going for Moroccan flavors using pomegranate, sumac, and rose buds. Not only is it delicious, but it looks gorgeous as well. If you aren’t a fan of tart flavors, use something other than pomegranate molasses to sweeten your treat. Agave nectar, brown rice syrup, or even granulated natural sugars will work well here.

2. Garlic Smashed Potatoes

This Microbiome Veggie Broth by Nikki and Zuzana is for those who are looking to rebuild gut function and resolve issues like leaky gut syndrome, candida overgrowth, SIBO, and other health problems. It’s rich in plant-based amino acids, collagen promoting nutrients, trace minerals, and electrolytes. The recipe is fairly simple, though the ingredient list is a bit lengthy. It might be tempting to buy readymade broth from the store, but I encourage you NOT to do that!  The packaged broths are always full of sodium and with not much else. With this recipe, the idea is to pack an immense amount of flavour into the broth, as well as get the maximum number of nutritional benefits

They are also an excellent source of fiber at 10 grams per ounce (about 2 tablespoons), and contain protein and minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Chia also assists in weight loss as well as reducing glucose levels which can benefit diabetics. Try out this Blueberry Chia Pudding by Helyn Dunn!
