Sweet potatoes: Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.

Zucchini: Zucchini is soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

Sweet Potato & Zucchini Stew


  • 1 cup chopped onion 
  • 2 1/2 cups diced sweet potato 
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 2 1/2 cups roughly chopped zucchini 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
  • 1 cup diced tomato 
  • 2 tablespoons pure tomato paste (find one without additives) 
  • 1 cup hot water 
  • 1/4 cup tightly packed fresh cilantro, roughly chopped, to serve


Place a saucepan on medium-high heat, and then add the onion, sweet potato, and garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. If the vegetables stick to the pan, add a bit of water. 

Add the zucchini, together with the ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, paprika, red pepper flakes, tomato, tomato paste, and the cup of hot water. Stir well. Place the lid on, lower the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. 

Remove the lid and cook for another 10 minutes, until the sweet potato is cooked through and the stew has thickened. 

Serve topped with fresh cilantro.
