Grounding Butter Chicken
There is just something so comforting about even the thought of coming home to a glorious Butter Chicken isn’t there. The combination of grounding spices and their aromatics ignites a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. This butter chicken delivers a rich source of antioxidants, healthy fats, and protein to support strong immune function going into winter.
4 free-range chicken thighs, cut into small chunks
1/2 cup organic coconut cream
1 tbsp coconut oil/organic ghee/butter
1/2 medium jap pumpkin, cut into cubes.
1 tin organic chopped tomatoes
1 cup pineapple, roughly chopped
1 tbsp ground turmeric

Gluten-Free Autumn Apple Crumble
Nothing beats an apple crumble this time of year. Not only does it feel like a big warm hug but it is also packed full of goodness to support digestion and immunity. When apples are cooked and cooled they transform into a source of resistant starch (prebiotic) to feed a healthy gut. Yes, this gives you even more reason to make extra and enjoy it for days to come.
