Here at Integrative Medicine, Laser and Aesthetics in West Carmel, we know that good nutrition and gut health are huge factors in your overall well-being. But sometimes you’re looking for a sweet treat, and this healthy brownies recipe shared by Dr. Jason Amich, DHSc, MBA should really hit the spot. And a bonus: they’re both vegan and gluten-free!
Our office has seen that a balanced diet is vital when considering other symptoms of chronic health issues. In fact, studies show that inflammatory diseases are out pacing all other chronic conditions because inflammation can be a universal response to distress. And as Dr. Amich explains, “Since 70% of our immune system is in our gut, we know that most chronic inflammatory diseases start there.”
As a Health Scientist, Functional Medical Consultant and our office’s Director for Clinical Services, Dr. Amich has much insight into the integrative methods we can use to improve overall health. However, he is also realistic when it comes to day-to-day living. “We approach all this with a dose of realism and common sense,” he says. “Yes, dairy-free might be the best road for a patient, but we don’t want patients scared to death to have a slice of cheesecake at a wedding reception.”
So if you’ve got a big sweet tooth, but want to make something a little bit healthier than boxed brownies… try out this recipe for delicious, fudgy and healthy brownies that are sure to satiate your craving!
