- How to move towards an ideal skin state
This recipe has quickly become of our favourite recipes to make during the Reboot. Indian food is one of our go-to takeout options, but with all the cream, sugar and gluten filled sides, it isn't exactly Reboot friendly!
Enter this recipe! It's simple and quick to put together, and the coconut milk adds a delicious creaminess that will help with any dairy cravings you may be having. For vegetarians, you could easily substitute the chicken thighs for chickpeas.
This is it Rebooters. We are in our final week of the Skin Reboot and the wonderfully challenging exploration of your health.
I truly hope that no matter how you participated, you have taken something valuable away from the community and education of the Skin Reboot.If your poop could talk, what would it be telling you? What have you learned from changing your diet and observing your body's mechanics? What's next for you?
We've been on a fantastic journey to glowing skin and harmonious digestion through the process of eating whole, nutrient-dense foods. We've talked a lot about digestion, healthy poops, what they look like and what to take note of when it comes to the physical sensations of gas and bloating. BUT a key player in this whole process has only been touched on when really, this organ deserves to be center stage in the spotlight with a standing ovation from the audience.
That's right..I'm talking about the liver!

Recovery Cookies (grain-free, dairy-free, paleo)
"Cookies, in my opinion, are one of the most comforting foods. And yes, I could go into the science of “why” – namely the combination of carbs and fat that humans are so drawn to for past survival needs. There’s lots of literature on the subject, so I won’t belabour it, and thus distract from what is supposed to be a light-hearted little anecdote, but the point is that from both a biological/anthropological perspective, and from a place of emotional experience (think your mom giving you cookies and milk before bed), there’s no question cookies make people happy.
But you know what makes ME happy? Cookies that aren’t made with blood-sugar-spiking, inflammation-inducing, disease-causing, refined crap! And of course cookies that adhere to the specific dietary considerations of the person I’m making them for..." - Ellie Shortt
The Skin Reboot has officially been underway for 4 days! That means by now, you're probably started spending a good amount of time in the kitchen, and maybe even experimenting with new foods, flavors and recipes. In the first PooptTalk blog post I mentioned how changing your diet can also change your digestive behavior, increase or decrease gas/bloating, and bowel movements.
This week I will touch on a few culinary herbs to help relieve digestive complaints while adding flavor and creativity to your cooking.
