Gut Healing Salad with Coconut Ginger Dressing  – a recipe that supports the microbiome.


A growing number of people are struggling to overcome the digestive issues associated with a leaky gut.


An inflammatory condition generally brought on by a poor diet or food sensitivities, leaky gut occurs when the mucosal barrier of the intestinal wall becomes compromised and leads to hyperpermeability. When this happens, bacteria and waste byproducts in the intestines are able to get into the bloodstream which can then lead to problems throughout the body.


Fortunately, diet can go a long way towards helping to correct the problem.  My Gut Healing Salad with Coconut Ginger Dressing was created with that very thing in mind.


Free of inflammatory ingredients such as dairy, grains, gluten, and sugar, the soluble fiber found in the rich assortment of greens and veggies feeds the beneficial gut bacteria at the same time providing body nourishing phytonutrients such as folate and vitamin A, C, and K.


The greens are also a rich source of magnesium, potassium, and calcium, minerals critical to bone, muscle and nerve health. Zinc found in spinach has also been shown to strengthen the gut lining and reduce permeability.


Combining the vegetables with the healthy fats found in coconut, chia seeds and flax helps to steady blood sugar levels while providing a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits from the alpha-linoleic acid in both flax and chia seeds.


As with all my recipes, customize to fit your health needs and get as much variety as possible into your diet. 


And if you are struggling with chronic gut issues, be sure to get help.  The sooner you identify the root cause of symptoms, the better.
