According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, populations that consume more dietary fibre have less chronic disease. In addition, intake of dietary fibre has beneficial effects on risk factors for developing several chronic diseases including your brain and gut health. Tonight we look at a few ways to create a lifestyle of improved eating habits that don't involve processed and especially ultra processed foods.
Learn to create a few dishes with 100% whole foods - whole grains, legumes and lots of plants. We'll begin by making a two-berry compote and high-fibre granola to serve with homemade dairy-free yogurt. Then get to work slicing seasonal vegetables to make a slaw mixture, rich in cruciferous vegetables with a little sweetness on the side. And finally you'll put together a Buddha bowl full of gut healthy ingredients that you can use for lunches or dinners. Overall, you'll learn how to improve the health of your microflora, which in turn will give you more energy, improved organ health and body weight. (This menu contains nuts, honey, coconut, strawberries, cherries and oats)
