Gut Healing: Bone Broth Matcha Latte

Matcha Latte with Bone Broth?

Trust me on this one - its delicious. It's perfect for these chilly winter days here on the East Coast, and couldn't be more packed with antioxidant and gut healing benefits.

Bone Broth Matcha Latte

Whisk the matcha green tea powder with the hot water, then gently warm the nut milk and bone broth in a pan together. Pour into the matcha green tea powder and stir well.

Resist the urge to add any sweetener, the slightly savoury and umami flavour is what makes it taste so good!

Gut Healing: Hearty Cacao Bone Broth Chili

This Hearty Cacao Chili is perfect as the temperatures drop and we find ourselves wanting a filling, delicious warm meal that will nourish mind body and soul! 

'We are what we eat, eats...'

I eat grass fed beef once or twice a week - I love the iron rich, energy boost it gives me when I eat it in small qualities. However I always ensure it is grass fed for optimum nutritional value. The nutritional value of grass fed beef is completely different from grain fed beef, grain fed meat can have only up to a quarter of Vitamin E of grass fed, one eighth of beta-carotene and only one third of omega 3 fatty acids. 

The fat profile of grass fed versus grain fed beef is one of the most important nutritional constituents: when we eat a diet too high in Omega 6's and too low in Omega 3's it can cause inflammation in the body. The typical western diet can be 11:1 to 30:1 in favour of the pro-inflammatory Omega 6, so anything we can do to help balance this ration is extremely favourable to our health. Beef from cows that eat grass as opposed to those who are fed grain has an Omega 3 content enhanced by 60 percent. 

Grass fed beef is more expensive than grain fed so thinking quality rather than quantity when it comes to beef is super important. One of the things I love about this chili recipe is that the amount of veggies equal the amount of meat, so not only are you getting an extra nutritional boost from them, you are also making the meat stretch a lot further than if you were to eat it on its own.

A lot of good chili recipes call for dark chocolate (yum), but in this recipe I switch it out for its superfood cousin, cacao. Cacao has a higher amount of antioxidants than any other food known to man, is rich in the essential nutrient magnesium (needed for over 300 processes in the body), and helps raise our feel good hormones serotonin and dopamine. Talk about a win win win! 

Chili is perfect for Meal Prep Sunday as it keeps really well in both the fridge or the freezer, and the longer you keep it the more the flavor deepens. Using the slow cooker means you can make it on a Sunday evening, leave to cook overnight and have meals for the rest of the week (we have even been know to have it for breakfast on a Monday morning)...

Hearty Cacao Bone Broth Chili

  • 2lbs grass fed ground beef

  • 2 cans organic chopped tomatoes (ensure cans are BPA free)

  • 1 cup Bare Bones Broth (chicken or beef)

  • 2 teaspoons organic tomato puree

  • 1 white onion

  • 3 large zucchini

  • 1 red pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

  • 2 teaspoons cumin

  • 2 teaspoons cacao powder

  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 2 teaspoons Himalayan salt

  • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon ghee

Melt the ghee in a large pan. Dice onion, zucchini and red pepper, and saute in the oil until slightly soft.

Place in the slow cooker / Instant Pot.

In the same pan brown the beef, draining off any excess fat before placing in the slow cooker.

Add all of the other ingredients to the slow cooker, stir really well and leave to cook for 4 hours on high, or overnight for 7-8 hours. Alternatively place in your Instant Pot for 30 minutes on manual.

Before serving tear up some fresh leafy greens (kale, spinach, chard) and stir through warm chili so the leaves wilt a little.

Gut Healing: Coffee Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I’m not sure if this recipe technically means I’ve broken my coffee detox, but it is one of my favourite Fall recipes, and I’m determined to celebrate every day of this incredible season.

The recipe comes courtesy of my Bare Bones Broth family, and is just one of over fifty anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense recipes included in my 28 Day Guided Gut Healing Program .

I always make a double batch of this soup and keep some in the freezer for when I need an quick easy meal in a hurry (I add roast chicken to up the protein if having it as main meal), and its perfect for those chilly New England evenings (that are just round the corner)!

This recipe is packed full of both gut healing and skin loving ingredients: bone broth and ghee are both phenomenal for gut health, and butternut squash is packed full of skin smoothing and healing Vitamin A.

Coffee Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed and roughly chopped

  • ¼ cup ghee

  • ¼ cup finely ground organic coffee

  • ½ onion, diced

  • 1 large carrot, diced

  • 1 stalk celery, diced

  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt

  • 3 cloves garlic, unpeeled

  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)

  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 4 cups Bare Bones Broth (chicken or beef)

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Melt ⅛ cup ghee, then stir in the coffee. Spread the squash out on a baking sheet, then pour over the ghee and coffee mixture, ensuring the squash is evenly coated. Place the unpeeled garlic cloves in a separate dish, and roast both in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the squash is soft.

Heat the remaining ghee in a large pot over a medium heat, and add the onions, celery, carrot and salt and sweat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the sage, honey and cinnamon, and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Remove the squash and the garlic from the oven, peel the garlic and add everything to the large pot. Add in the bone broth, and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, then transfer to a blender. Top with fresh sage and a drizzle of EVOO.

Gut Healing: Bone Broth Cacao smoothie

When I find a new Superfood Smoothie recipe I love I tend to make it everyday, and this one inspired by the amazing @the_wellth is no exception! ⠀

I played with the recipe until I could make a lower carb version, and this is it, rich, creamy, deliciously chocolatey and a gut health lovers dream. Bone Broth has so many health boosting benefits (I swear it is actually magic), including providing amino acids that are difficult to get from our modernized diets including proline, lysine, arginine and glutamine, improving the health of skin, hair and connective tissue, improving gut and digestive health, and helping with liver function and detoxification. My absolute favorite (and I've tried them all) is from Bare Bones Broth and we have a bi-monthly subscription to their broths. ⠀

I swear by having at least 1 cup of bone broth a day, and do this by adding to soups, smoothies, or sipping on in place of tea. ⠀

  • 20 grams collagen powder
( we love Bare Bones Broth)

  • 1 cup chilled chicken bone broth (yup, Bare Bones Broth)

  • 1⁄2 cup canned coconut milk


  • 1⁄2 cup frozen cauliflower


  • 1⁄4 avocado

  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder


  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence


  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon

Blend until smooth and feel amazing!
