Did you know what our 'Gut Bacteria' eat?
It is Plant-Based Fibre.
And now we know it looks like different types of gut bacteria have their own "preferred food" = "preferred type of fibre".
Do you know what this mean?
To have a good balanced gut bacteria, we need to eat different types of fibres such as
Resistant starch , and more.
Rather than going too deep here, what we would like to aim is TO EAT 40 DIFFERENT TYPES OF PLANT-BASED FOODS so that we can evenly feed different types of bacteria.
Sounds difficult? Well, not really because when you count, all you need a teaspoon amount (approx. 30g) :)
In this recipe, it provides 15 different plant based foods!!
Four mixed beans (I used canned one for convenience)
Frozen peas and corns
Spinach (Again, I just used frozen chopped spinach for convenience)
Carrot (Forgot add in this bunch!)
Tuna for an extra protein
Chop all veggies into similar sizes
Add and mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl
Season with olive oil and lemon
