New Winter Recipes and Other Yummy Suggestions

While February might seem like we are approaching the end of winter, we still have another 5 weeks to go. So we thought we’d post some new recipes!

Recipes

Each of the three new recipes available on our website are from Jennifer Browne’s Vegetarian Comfort Foods. This cookbook showcases recipes that are kind to our digestive tracts, so it’s kind of perfect for what NutraCleanse™ stand for: health and happiness! (Particularly with regards to happy and healthy digestion.)

All 3 of the recipes we chose to feature on our site are vegan and gluten-free.

Cookbooks

Here is a list of other recipe sources (a list compiled by the lovely Erin Ireland, from To Die For Fine Foods) that are healthy and conducive to great gut health:

And if you’re looking for a great Baby Food cookbook that features whole, plant-based recipes designed to be very kind to your little one’s gut, pre-order Baby Nosh: Plant-Based, Gluten-Free Goodness for Baby’s Food Sensitivities. (out March 1!)

Enjoy, and happy cooking!
