Heal Your Gut recipe & giveaway

If you have been paying a skerrick of attention to anything I’ve been banging on about the past 6 years, you’ll know how passionate I am about healing the gut.  The gut is the pivot of your health.  When it’s working well it can utilise the nutrients in your food to fuel your entire body – hormones included.  When it’s damaged by way of constitution, inheritance, poor diet and lifestyle and medications like the pill and alike, it can be a real task to get it back on the happy train again.  I talk about it in great length in my Debunking PCOS download as to why you must fix it stat!  But my gorgeous wellness buddy Lee Holmes is back with a sizeable serving of gut goodness by way of her very exciting new ebook – Heal Your Gut!  After all, it’s all good and well to talk about it, it’s the next level of healing when you are doing great things about it!

Today not only are we featuring Lee’s Super Green Soup BUT she’s given us some books to GIVEAWAY!  Keep reading to find out all the details.
