3 plant-based recipes to heal your gut
We're celebrating Love Your Gut Week from 16-22 September
If you suffer from digestive problems, it can affect every aspect of your life, including what you can eat. But that shouldn't stop you from enjoying good food with friends!
In honour of Love Your Gut Week from 16-22 September, Dr Joan Ransley shares 3 delicious dishes filled with gut-friendly ingredients, from high-fibre rye sourdough bread, to polyphenol-rich spinach.
Boost your dietary fibre with the help of rye sourdough bread, which can help prevent constipation and improve the health of your gut microbiome. The addition of spinach and asparagus provides a rich source of polyphenols, which are also great for gut health.
Perfect for a mid-week meal, this one-pot supper is packed with plant-based ingredients that are high in dietary fibre, complex carbohydrates and phytochemicals to help 'fertilise' your gut.
Free from flour and sugar, this crumbly cake uses grated carrots as a natural sweetener. The addition of almonds, pumpkin seeds and coconut provides dietary fibre and complex carbs to keep your gut moving.
