LeakyGutRecipe_OptinBanner_2Dr Jockers Comments:

Traditional Thai food has a lot of great health benefits. This culture liberally uses good fats like coconut and antioxidant rich herbs such as lemongrass, ginger, chili and scallions. These have profound nutritional benefits including reducing inflammation, anti-microbial effects and improving liver detoxification.

This recipe is fantastic over the low-carb cauliflower rice recipe. If you are still consuming grains you can use an option such as quinoa or brown rice which are healthier grains. Coconut aminos are a great substitute for soy sauce and they are anti-inflammatory and good for the gut.

The combination of healthy fats in the coconut milk, polyphenolic antioxidants in the various herbs and clean protein in the turkey is very gut soothing and reduce inflammation throughout the body.  I highly recommend experimenting with similar combinations and figuring out what sort of coconut ginger soup/stew recipe you enjoy the most.

You can get some very high quality pasture-raised turkey through US Wellness Meats here.

  1. This is a staple recipe in our house. I follow the recipe just as it’s written and love serving it with conjac noodles or cauliflower rice (brown rice for my 3yr old who also loves this and alwasy eats it all up). Thank you for the recipe!
