Channel your culinary creativity while assembling your Buddha bowl:

  • Keep it colourful and include both fresh and cooked vegetables, and plant-based protein.
  • Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, tempeh, and tamari are naturally rich in probiotics and introduce beneficial bacteria to the gut.
  • Fibre-rich prebiotic foods e.g. avocado, beetroot, onions, garlic, chickpeas, and wholegrains help feed the ‘good bugs’ in the gut to support digestion and overall health.
