SLUGGISH BOWEL OR CONSTIPATION?
Increasing plants in your diet during the day can help ‘get you moving’ and relieve the bloating that so often comes along with constipation.
These Baked Pumpkin and Chickpea Felafel are so delicious, you wouldn’t even know that they are loaded with plants!
PREBIOTIC EGGPLANT & CHICKPEA CURRY
This vegan curry is so light that it can be enjoyed even on a balmy summer evening.
It's loaded with prebiotic fibres and resistant starch rich foods to feed healthy gut microbes, and topped with fresh summer greens and mini-roma tomatoes for a vitamin C boost to break down phytates in the grains and legumes.
As much as I love tortilla soup, the toppings are my favourite part. Avocado, black beans, coriander, lime, crispy tortilla strips, the options are endless.
This vibrant baby beet salad is rich in colourful vegetables, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Perfect for any time of the year, it is tossed with seasonal herbs and is begging for your personal touch, whether it be walnuts, watercress or white wine vinegar. A crumbling of Greek or goat’s feta adds protein to the dish, which will make it satisfying enough on its own as a small meal. Wrapping the beets in foil to bake in the oven gives them a sweet flavour not experienced with boiling. A sprinkling of lightly roasted walnuts add extra good fats for brain function and before you know it, this salad will become a year-round staple in your household.
