Belly Bliss Parfait

When it comes to addressing gut imbalances, incorporating functional foods into your daily diet can be one of the best and easiest ways to begin the repair process. This dish is a wonderful breakfast that can be made ahead of time and have ready to grab and go from the fridge in the morning. Prepare a big batch of the dry ingredients and store in your pantry so you have a gut-friendly breakfast that’s quick and easy to whip up.

All you will need to do is add the wet ingredients the night before and leave to soak overnight - Bircher muesli style! This is a supercharged breakfast with lots of fibre, protein, antioxidants, calcium and essential fatty acids.  Chia seeds are a superfood – they swell to 10-12 times their weight, helping you feel full whilst also working to flush the colon and remove excess hormones and toxins that may be contributing to an unhealthy gut. Goji berries provide natural sweetness in this porridge and are an abundant source of beta carotene which helps to promote healthy skin. Seeds and nuts are excellent sources of zinc, vitamin E and magnesium, supporting skin regeneration and happy hormones.

Serves 4-6

Dry:

1/2 cup chia seeds  

1 cup activated buckwheat  

1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened and preferably organic)  

½ cup goji berries  

½ cup sunflower seeds

Wet (per single-serve):

3/4 – 1 cup almond milk  

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal  

½ cup cherries, strawberries, blueberries or raspberries (can be frozen or fresh)  

1 tablespoon Gut Replenish powder

 

Directions 

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together and store in a glass jar until needed. 
  2. The night before you want to have it, mix ½ a cup of the dry mix with ¾ to one cup almond milk (depending on desired consistency), along with Gut Replenish powder, flaxseed meal and berries.
  3. Find your soaked and scrumptious parfait waiting for you the next morning!

 

Tip: Sprinkle with cacao nibs and add one teaspoon of coconut oil for a delicious bonus superfood boost!
