Who doesn’t love applesauce? Served hot or cold, it’s a great, comforting snack. Cooking it fills the kitchen with wonderful, mouth-watering scents, and it can be as smooth or chunky as you like it. Pretty much any berry or stone fruit can be added (apricots? pears? cranberries? yum!), but this Blueberry Applesauce is one of my favorites because of the rich blue color. Add ginger, lemon zest, or cinnamon according to your preferences and enjoy!
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
- Combine the apples, blueberries, and water in a pot over medium-high heat.
