It’s British Pie Week this week, celebrating all things pastry and potato topped! There are hundreds of pie recipes available online, so rather than invent our own, we thought we’d bring you five recipes that we think would be particularly great if you are trying to boost your gut health.
You might be wondering how eating a pie could possibly boost gut health, but the secret lies in the amount of vegetables, herbs and spices that each of these contains. Each different species of beneficial gut bacteria likes to eat something different, so by ensuring a wide variety of plant based foods, you can be sure that you’re keeping as many of them happy and fed as possible. The first in this list boasts an incredible 14 different varieties including all the spices!
