Did you know that apple sauce can help heal your gut? When apples are cooked the soluble fiber “pectin” is released and can be very helpful in healing digestive issues like diarrhea, constipation, leaky gut, IBS and more!
Pectin is an easily accessible fuel that your gut cells can instantly use to heal and regenerate. Pectin also acts as a prebiotic which means it feeds good gut bacteria and promotes an overall healthier gut!
Make your own at home for added benefits or if you are short on time grab an unsweetened organic kind from your local grocery store. All it takes is 2-3 tbsp up to 3 times a day to see serious healing powers!
How to make:
- 6-7 sweet apples (I used honeycrisp)
- 1/2 cup of filtered water
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- Peel, core and cube your apples.
- Add your apples, water, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt to a large soup pot.
- Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat down to a simmer.
- Cover your apples and let cook for 30 min.
- When apples are done you can use a potato masher (like this one) for a chunkier texture or a blender if you want it more smooth.
- Your applesauce can be refrigerated for 5-10 days or you can freeze it for a later date!
