Sweet potato wedges

These sweet potato wedges are a great little extra carb option that the whole family will love. You can eat them hot/ as is, or choose to wait until they have cooled down for an extra health boost.

Sweet potatoes are best eaten cooked and cooled as their starch then turns into ‘resistant’ starch, feeding the good gut bacteria for a strong gut microbiome, instead of spiking your blood sugar.

Chocolate icecream mousse cake

This raw, vegan treat is perfect for your guiltfree carb-refill sundays.

Filled with anti-oxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and good fats.

The coconut sugar is much higher in nutrients than conventional sugar, especially the raw version (we use Purasana) keeps all its goodness, while having a lower glycemic index (blood sugar response) to reduce damage to your blood vessels and metabolism.

The good fats of the nuts and avocados will keep you full for long, fuel your brain cells and metabolism.

Nutrigenomic advise: If you have a COMT polymorphism and are feeling slightly stressed out or just having lots on your plate, this might not be the best option for you today, as it uses up more of an already taxed COMT enzyme. Have this on days where you are feeling truly relaxed :). X

Vegan Glutenfree Banana Cake

Eat cold for maximum health benefits to your gut bacteria (resistant starch!) – If eaten warm, it will taste just as good but the sugar will feed your fat cells rather than your gut bacteria ;).
