This gorgeous green soup is bursting with energy and flavour and is sure to keep you warm on chilli days. Broccoli has anticancer properties and will help keep colds at bay. Spinach is great for calcium and iron and celery is known to reduce inflammation of the gut. All three veg are high in folate and will help keep your gut healthy.
The one flavour I miss the most is cheese. Being largely dairy free for the sake of my IBS (when I eat cheese I get constipated), I don’t really get to enjoy cheese as much as I used to. Maybe once a month, if that. However, having healthy bowels is much more important to me than eating gone off, other species, breast milk.
Saying this, I created this super simple IBS free recipe which feels a little naughty with the addition of dairy free cream cheese, which you can buy in most supermarkets. I rarely cheat with over-processed products like this but now and again the inclusion is OK. Providing you are eating a healthy, mainly whole food based diet the rest of the time and looking after your gut.
