Mango: Mangos have to be one of the most delicious fruits. They are packed with nutrients, low in calories, and can be great for your gut health, eye health, and heart!

How I support my gut health

First and foremost, it’s by having a healthy, plant-forward diet. Fruits and veggies are the best sources of nutrients for a healthy microbiome. Adding things like whole grains, leafy greens, lean protein, and avocadoes into your diet can all help support your gut.

Outside of trying to get as many servings of veggies as I can into my diet, I also love to take ION* Gut Support in my daily routine. ION* seals cells in the gut lining, helping to keep toxins out of your body and strengthening the terrain upon which your microbiome can diversify. In turn, this helps with things like immune function, digestion, mental clarity, and metabolism.

This gut support product can help strengthen the integrity of the gut lining and protect the immune and neurologic systems. This product is seriously such an easy way to make sure your gut is supported and healthy.

ION* Gut Support also supports immune function which is great during the winter months/cold and flu season. They help with mental clarity, and mood, which obviously we all need help with. It seriously makes me feel so great!

How to make veggie spring rolls:

For the mango salsa

  1. In a small food processor, blend together cubed mango, red chili pepper, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, maple syrup and salt. Pulse until the salsa comes together.

For the rice paper rolls

  1. To make the rolls create an assembly line of all prepared ingredients onto a large plate or in low bowls: butter lettuce leaves, thinly sliced bell pepper, avocado slices, thinly sliced purple cabbage, carrots cut into matchsticks, thinly sliced mango, fresh basil and fresh cilantro.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet or plate with parchment paper and set it aside.
  3. To assemble the salad rolls, fill a wide + shallow bowl or dish with warm water. Set one sheet of rice paper on top of the water. After 15 – 20 seconds, gently press it down to submerge it into the water completely.  Once the rice paper feels pliable, carefully lay it flat on the counter or a large cutting board.
  4. In the middle of the rice paper, lay a piece of butter lettuce. Then place a few sprigs of cilantro and/or basil. Layer on top a few pieces of avocado and mango. Place a few strips of bell pepper, carrots and purple cabbage. Fold the left + right sides over the sides of the filling. Fold the lower edge over the top and enclose the filling. Roll the salad roll upwards until compactly enclosed.  Set onto the parchment lined baking tray or plate.
  5. Repeat these steps for all of the salad rolls. Serve with the mango salsa and enjoy!
