How to build your nutritionally complete WholeMade Meal...
Dark, leafy greens are the super heroes on your plate. They are packed with nutrients and probiotics that do everything from helping burn fat o helping us detoxify. Most importantly, they feed our microbiome (gut flora) – an essential step to healing a leaky gut. Our Apple Cider Vinaigrette stimulates your digestive juices, so you can get the most from your nutrient-dense meal. Starting your meal this way supports your digestive system and makes the most of your meal’s nutrition.
An animal-based protein is a vital component of every main meal. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins that make up your organs, tissues, muscles and hormones. An adequate daily supply helps reduce brain fog, boost energy levels, curb cravings, improve mood, keep your metabolism running efficiently and slow aging so you feel vibrant. Obtaining enough of all the essential amino acids from plant sources alone requires a highly optimized digestive system, something most of us lack.
A hearty dose of colorful veggies is essential to any well-balanced meal. We love to prepare vegetables using healthy fats such as avocado, olive or coconut oils along with a variety of herbs and spices to add a splash of flavor. Plant-based foods are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients that are essential to optimal health. Lightly cooking vegetables kick starts the digestive process making it easier for your bodies to break them down and also provides the fiber that fuels your microbiome ensuring a healthy colon and robust immune system.
Made-from-scratch condiments not only add an exhilarating burst of flavor and texture to your meal, they are yet another way to increase the nutrientdensity of your plate. The flavors and micronutrients in our condiments make the perfect complement to any main meal combination and give you the ability to transform simple staples into brand new experiences every day.
For our great-grandmothers, a mug of bone broth and a serving of lacto-fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut or dill pickles were considered indispensable. These foods are nutritional powerhouses providing predigested nutrients our bodies can absorb and use easily. Bone broth-based soups are the ultimate medicine and lacto-fermented foods support optimal gut health and immune function.
