The Recipe for a Healthy Gut:

 

  • Tofu: rich in plant-based proteins and low in saturated fats, tofu is easy to digest and offers essential amino acids necessary for gut health.
  • Kimchi: bursting with probiotics and a unique blend of spices, kimchi adds a zesty kick to the fried rice. Fermented foods like kimchi are renowned for their gut-friendly bacteria, which help maintain a healthy balance of microbes in the digestive system, promoting better digestion and immune function.
  • Sesame Oil: sesame oil contains antioxidants and healthy fats that support gut health by reducing inflammation and supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
  • Garlic and Onions: both garlic and onions contain prebiotic fibres that serve as fuel for the beneficial bacteria in the gut, promoting a healthy microbiome and better digestion.
  • Vegetables: packed with vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibre, these vegetables support gut health by promoting regularity, reducing inflammation, and nourishing the beneficial bacteria in the gut.

 

Our Kimchi Fried Rice isn't just delicious; it's also great for your gut. Loaded with probiotics from the fermented kimchi and prebiotic fibres found in garlic, onions, and vegetables, this dish promotes a healthy gut microbiome.
