This Week: SOLUBLE/INSOLUBLE FIBRE RICH
This week, I’ve suggested some recipes to help you improve the health and integrity of your gut.
Fibre; both insoluble and soluble are key to ensuring a healthy gut microbiome; specifically, the microorganisms living in your intestines. A person has about 300 to 500 different species of bacteria in their digestive tract. While some microorganisms are harmful to our health, many are incredibly beneficial and even necessary to a healthy body.
Mediterranean Za’atar Mushrooms with Pan-fried Halloumi
Here’s a fabulously simple Mediterranean mushroom breakfast/brunch you must try!! Sauté mushrooms in a little olive oil until they are slightly crispy. Meanwhile, separately, pan-fry (no need to add oil) or griddle halloumi. Serve on toasted sourdough, with a generous sprinkle of Za’atar and an even more generous drizzle of olive oil (it makes it!)Za’atar is a delicious middle eastern seasoning; use it in salads vegetables or sprinkled as a tasty garnish as I have here. No need for extra salt as both Halloumi and Za’atar are naturally salty.
Healthy Protein Packed Granola Bars***
These scrumptious protein-rich granola Bars are SOOOO good! A delicious and far healthier homemade alternative to the shop-bought energy bars, that more often than not, although high in protein, are also very high sugar. They’re an ideal snack for slow afternoons or even better, post-exercise!Do let me know how you get in the comments below the recipes! Enjoy!
