We don't often discuss our gut health, with many of us considering it an embarrassing topic - but this week is Love Your Gut Week . So, we thought we'd take a look at the health benefits eating veg can have on gut health.
Fibre-based foods are important for good gut health, and dark leafy greens, such as kale and cavolo nero are both sources of this. Fibre is a key nutrient which can help digestion and prevent constipation, so load up on the green stuff!
But, it's not just dark green veg you should be eating - leeks contain Frucooligosaccharides (FOS) - a type of fibre which can encourage the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut.
If that's not a good enough reason to incorporate more of these veg into your diet, then we don't know what is! We have a wide range of exciting tasty recipes, to help you make more of these veg - check them out here.
