Thank you so much to Belinda for another delicious recipe and a lovely choice for a chilly winters day.
Note from Belinda:
I wanted to add the attached recipe because this is so yummy and I made it for Keilah.
It is filled to the brim with:
– Plant based protein (lentils) that are easier digested than animal protein.
– Bone broth that is rich in nutrients like gelatine and glycine, which help to protect and heal the gut, skin and digestive tract.
– Prebiotics namely Garlic and Onion. Garlic includes Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Manganese and fibre
– Ginger that fights inflammation and infections. It can also lower blood sugars and cholesterol levels
