Gut-Friendly Summer Recipes

This month, I’ve got a celebration of summer with links to some of my favorite summertime recipes – gut-friendly and healthy!



Summer is the time when so many fruits and veggies are at their peak of ripeness, and with the temperatures rising, it’s no wonder salads are so popular in the summertime.

Berry Spinach Salad

Confetti Corn

Farro Salad with Grilled Eggplant, Tomatoes and Onion

Carrot, Date and Feta Salad

What’s summer without a backyard barbecue and grilling?

Remember – you can always substitute gut-friendly ingredients in your favorite recipes, too! Go for whole grain breads and buns, vegan mayo, etc. Sub in honey or agave to reduce the sugar content. Many recipes can easily become more gut-friendly. And don't skimp on the veggies - they work great on the grill!
