Sweet potatoes and black beans are such a popular combination, do a quick search on the internet and you’ll find lots of recipes featuring this duo. Maybe, it’s a popular combination due to the flavours working well or the textures complimenting one another, I personally love this combination as not only are they delicious together but both ingredients are great sources of fibre which is beneficial for supporting gut health.
As someone who was diagnosed with IBS then subsequently food intolerances I am aware of how important fibre is for gut health. Fibre is a nutrient that we tend not to get enough of in our diets. Both soluble and insoluble fibre help support healthy digestion and as our cells don’t digest fibre it provides a food source for the good bacteria in our intestines. However, if you are not used to having lots of fibre in your diet I’d recommend starting slowly to allow your body (and the good bacteria) to adjust.
