Probiotics are live bacteria or yeast that support a health gut. They balance the good and bad bacteria and promote a healthy functioning digestive system. GUT HEALTH is so important. Other probiotics include yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, tempeh, kombucha, and many others. A beginners guide to probiotics is found here.
This recipe is amazing for meal prep when you don't have a lot of time. Just roast the veggies, make your carbs and dressing at the beginning of the week and you can make quick, easy, healthy and SUPER satisfying meals all week.
