Happy first day of Fall to everyone out there!
With the official changing of the seasons, I thought I would give you a simple recipe to help warm up the digestive system with the cooler weather quickly approaching. This is a 2 part recipe - one for the spice mix that you will then put onto the Apple Ghee Bombs.
Apples are predominant right now which means nature is giving us her clues as to what we should be ingesting at this particular time of year, and cooking them ensures that you keep the digestive juices fired up and is easier on your system to balance yourself against the cold.
Another reason they're the Apple of my eye…
- Are filled with antioxidants (oxidation reactions can produce free radicals, which we do NOT want).
- Have been shown to support heart health.
- Positively affect the healthy microbiome in your gut.
Sweet Spice Mix
This one works great anywhere you want sweet taste and creates a warming digestive aid. Use generously. I usually grind my own spices, but these 3 don’t grind up easy, so I buy them powdered and mix them in a glass shakey jar from Bed Bath and Beyond (99cents) or any glass jar with lid. I make a small batch and use also on veggies, etc.
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon,
2 Tbsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp ground cardamom
Ghee Bomb Apples
The easiest recipe yet:
Stir-fry one apple in a tsp ghee, add a Tbsp or 2 of water if it sticks. Top with sweet spice mix. A light, warm breakfast. Leave the skin on, core the apple and cut up into small cubes.
I make my own ghee but you can purchase organic ghee at any health food store or Whole Foods
