Restore your gut health🍎🍏 Stewed apples or #applesauce has the ability to heal the mucosal lining, that protects the entire GI tract, as well as feeding the beneficial bacteria in the intestinal microbiome. When the apples are left to simmer, pectin is released and becomes the perfect nourishment for the good bacteria in the gut, helping their colonies to multiple and heal the gut.
Apples (I recommend going for organic) also contain a wide variety of phytochemicals which are all powerful antioxidants. I'm going to take 2-3 teaspoons a day, either with some yogurt or off the spoon! This recipe is ideal for someone who has just finished up a course of antibiotics!
•3-4 organic apples
•2 tbsp of cinnamon
•2 chopped dates
•1/2 cup of water
Method: add all the ingredients to a medium sized pot. Allows to simmer for 15-20 minutes on a low heat. Once the skin starts to separate from the apples, take it off the heat and store in the fridge for upto 5 days.
