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.

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.
A simple gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free cracker to enjoy every single time! Angela Liddon, from the blog “Oh She Glows”, has a recipe that
I’ve used and these tasty snacks turn out perfectly every single time. Not only is it super quick to prepare (5 minutes!), it’s also very easy. Just try eating only one!
Delicious Sweet Potato & Avocado Brownies
We chose this recipe because enjoying desserts and treats is important and finding dessert recipes that can be shared with family and friends can be challenging. This recipe is not only delicious but Reboot friendly! Traditional brownies usually contain inflammatory ingredients including flour, processed sugar, and pasteurized hormone filled dairy. Brownies also spike your blood sugar which then spikes your cortisol (stress hormone) and insulin (fat storage) causing imbalanced hormones, weight gain, and mood issues. These brownies are full of healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants. They contain the perfect fudgy texture that will leave even the pickiest of eaters surprised when they find out what it is made out of.
