Increasing fibre is so important for our gut health, and energy levels. Many clients often ask for practical recipes to increase fibre and I love this one as I usually always have the ingredients in my cupboard, so it's a reliable speedy supper.
I recommend increasing fibre gradually to avoid digestive discomfort, and work with a professional if you need support in adding greater diversity to your diet.
