Eating For Health with How You Glow: Week Two

The second recipe in our wellness series with health duo, How You Glow. 

Jessie and Tara, the duo from wellness and beauty blog How You Glow share their second recipe in a six-part series.

The recipes in this series focus on superfood and super herb infusions. We can truly make food medicine when we incorporate these incredible, potent, and powerful ingredients into them seamlessly.

This week, we are making Ashwaganda Yogurt Rice Cake!

Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, has a wide range of health benefits, including its ability to fight against cancer and diabetes, as well as reduce inflammation, arthritis, asthma, hypertension, stress, and rheumatism. Furthermore, it boosts your supply of antioxidants and regulates the immune system.

This recipe makes for a wonderful and filling gut-friendly snack that is easy to whip up. The beet sauerkraut will load you up with essential probiotics, the rice cake adds a nice crunch, and the yogurt-laden ashwanganda fills you up with tons of healthy benefits. Next time you want a light lunch or filling snack, this should be your go-to.

  1. I definitely have to try ashwaganda! I’ve heard many lovely things about it and its health benefits. Also, Jessie and Tara are both stunners–I have to check out their blog and Instagram for more!

  2. What would be a good vegan alternative to the yoghurt? The eggs could probably be easily swapped out for avocado slices. The casein in yoghurt makes me bloat horribly, so do eggs.

  3. Is it ashwaganda or ashwagandha? Ether way this looks amazing and so simple. I can’t wait to try this as a work day breakfast!
