“This salad recipes makes the most of winter’s harvest – not to mention the perfect make-ahead-dish for easy supper solutions. The hero ingredient in this dish is the Jerusalem Artichoke – which are a great source of prebiotic fibre, inulin, that feeds the bacteria living in our gut. Jerusalem Artichokes can be eaten cooked or raw – leave the skin on for an extra fibre boost!
With new studies emerging on the links between gut health and mood, I’m tackling the winter blues by taking care of my gut by including more prebiotic and probiotics in my diet.”
