Rainbow Lunch Bowl + Anti-inflammatory Sauce | Gut Health With Liv Kaplan

Colourful & Delicious Rainbow Bowl!

Often it’s the way veggies are prepared that makes them good for the gut. In this recipe, we show you how to prepare raw cabbage and kale to make them not only easier on the digestive system but also tastier! We’ve also added sweet potato to this recipe, a great way to use up the leftovers from last night’s roast. In fact, when potatoes are cooked and then cooled, they develop something called resistant starch – aptly named as it passes through your own digestive system and instead feeds the gut bacteria that live along this tract.

Cold potatoes that have been previously cooked contain resistant starch – this starch is wonderful for the gut as it is resistant to your own digestion and instead feeds all the bacteria in your gut, allowing them to thrive.

This recipe is a great one to prepare in advance and leave in the fridge. These robust veggies last really well when prepared in this way so you can say see ya later to soggy salad leaves!
