SAVORY YOGURT BOWLS TO DELIGHT YOUR GUT

SAVORY YOGURT BOWLS TO DELIGHT YOUR GUT

| Killeen McGowan | December 2018 |

When it comes to yogurt, fruity, sweet, or plain-Jane is the standard route. But, who says it can’t be a savory experience?

Imagine thick, creamy, probiotic-packed greek yogurt as a base for rich, seasoned savory-style flavor. It really flings the door wide open into a world of new possibilities! Danny Seo, Naturally has taken that inspiration and run with it. Below are three of Danny’s colorful, inventive add-ins to get your daily dose of live-cultures for a happy and satisfied gut.*

Roasted Carrots:

Carrots are super healthy; lots of biotin, Vitamin K, fiber, and vitamins B6 and C.*

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place 1 pound of carrots (cut into ½-inch slices) on top, and toss with a little olive oil, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  • Roast at 400 degrees until fork-tender.
  • Puree in a food processor with 2 tsp of lemon juice.
  • Chill and swirl away!

Roasted beets:

  • Bake cleaned and trimmed beets in the oven at 400 degrees.
  • Wrap each beet tightly in aluminum foil and place on middle oven rack and roast for 1 hour, or until fork-tender.
  • When the beets are cool enough, peel off the skins and dice them up.
  • Beets are loaded with potassium, fiber, iron, and vitamins A, B, and C.

Chlorophyll:

The marbleized green yogurt above is from liquid chlorophyll, which you can find at any health food store. Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green pigment, and is considered a super potent ingredient. In the body, the green liquid promotes detoxing by binding to toxic metals, and is loaded with antioxidants to help repair and protect cells.* But what does it taste like? Minty and mighty fresh.

Don’t forget…

...toasted nuts, fresh herbs, balsamic vinegar, freshly cracked pepper and good oils to dress up a yogurt treat.
