My sister Gwyneth is a foodie like me. Today we got busy and made lunch together…here’s the recipe!
So, you’ve decided to repair your gut health. That means finding alternatives to grain. When I first started this food journey, trying to find the beat alternatives made my head spin. After weeks of research and many failed experiments these are my top picks.
Why? First, they’re seeds not grains. That means they don’t inflame the gut, making them easy to digest.
Second, because they’re unrefined they’re high in fibre and therefore cleanses the gut efficiently.
Once you know how, they’re really easy to prepare and a great substitute to grass grains. So, without further ado, let’s take a look.
The good news is these seeds are alkaline.
Eat no more than 1/2 cup (cooked) at one serving.
Fill your plate mostly with veges!
For non vegetarians add small amounts of fish or organic meat.
This cereal originally came from wild grass seeds on the African savanna. By 10,000 BC, neolithic farmers grew it in Asia. Modern millet is a staple crop around the world. We love it because it’s gluten-free, alkaline, low GI and packed with minerals like magnesium and zinc. It’s tasty, digestible and wonderful for gut health.
Ingredients (serves up to 4)
1 cup of millet
2 1/2 cups water
Try it with seasonal local berries or fruit and spice it up with cinnamon (to aid digestion), organic plain yoghurt or coconut cream.
Here’s the recipe for the base (you can add any topping you like, today I smeared on avocado, hummus, kale mush)
1 cup almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
4 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/2 tsp salt, onion powder, garlic powder, chilli powder. (optional)
2 large eggs
1 cup water
4 tbsp of olive oil
Combine all dry ingredients – then add wet ones. Make balls and roll with a rolling pin with non stick baking paper in between.
Use and freeze the remaining mini pizza bases separated by baking paper and in a sealed large plastic bag.
