Quinoa, roasted eggplant and feta salad. One of my favourite salads to have on hand. Enjoy! #glutenfree INGREDIENTS 1 and ½ cups of quinoa 2 ½ cups of low sodium chicken broth 1 large eggplant, cut into 1 inch cubes 3 tablespoons olive oil Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cloves garlic 2 cups of fresh spinach 1/4 cup of crumbled goat's feta ¼ cup of chopped basil. DIRECTIONS Rinse quinoa under cold water. Place in saucepan with chicken broth, cover and simmer gently for approximately 20 minutes (or until quinoa is tender and fluffs with a fork). While quinoa is cooking, preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Grease the sheet lightly with olive oil. In a large bowl, mix cubed eggplant with 3 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Spread eggplant over the lightly greased baking sheet and roast for approximately 30 minutes until eggplant softens. Check eggplant at the 15- minute mark and flip cubes to other side. While eggplant is being roasted, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan, add spinach and 1 minced garlic clove and cook for 2-5 minutes or until spinach wilts. Remove from heat. Once eggplant is done, remove it from the baking sheet and add to pan with garlic. Add cooked quinoa and second clove of minced garlic. Mix all together, top with feta and chopped basil if desired and enjoy! Serves 4

In my book The Natural Makeover Diet – I have a huge emphasis on the role of digestion. I have always said, “You are only as healthy as your pipes”. In other words- you are only as healthy as you are absorbing, digesting and excreting. The digestive system is one of the “master” systems in the body and if it is off…it can tip into other areas of your health (headaches, weight gain, fatigue, skin problems etc.). If you are having digestive issues (bloating, constipation etc.) – in addition to talking to your doctor, here are a few very helpful tips. 1. Supplement with a daily probiotic. Swipe left to see one of my favorite probitiocs by @renewlifecanada with a high dosage of “good bacteria” count (50 billion) from a mixed strain. A mixed strain will be more effective with repair of your gut lining. 2. Remove potential food irritants. The typical food irritants are gluten, wheat, dairy, soy and corn. 3. Add in healing foods such as cruciferous vegetables, garlic, cinnamon, nuts, cold water fish (salmon) and ginger. 4. Drink mint tea to aid in digestion. 5. Chew your food well to optimize your digestive capacity. 6. Consider supplementing with l-glutamine to help heal the intestinal lining. A high quality distilled omega 3 supplement is also recommended. 7. Make sure to rest and relax. The stomach is considered your “second brain”. Chronic stress can have a negative impact on digestive health. Yoga, time with friends, a long shower, exercise – it all helps. #yourgut #yourhealth
