One of the first things I learned in nutrition school is that you’re not what you eat, you’re what you digest and absorb. The gut is the second brain of the body and is so vitally important in helping us to sustain good health.
Eating a whole-food diet filled with probiotics and anti-inflammatory foods is key for optimal gut health, and this bowl will help you do just that! Gluten and dairy-free, this bowl will soothe your digestive system with turmeric and salmon’s anti-inflammatory power. It’s filled with nutrients and fibre (so important for feeding those healthy bacteria) from the greens and liver-detoxifying enzymes in cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Not to mention, it tastes incredible!
