Did you know that including 30+ plants in your diet per week is recommended for maintaining a healthy gut?

Vegetables are packed full of vitamins, fibre and other components that are great for health – including lowering cholesterol levels, maintaining a healthy weight and providing food for our (healthy) gut bacteria. 

We love this recipe as it is a super easy and versatile way to pack some extra veggies into your week – you can swap and change the vegetables as you like.
