Chicken offer great sources of healthy protein. Avocado is considered to be a super food and one of the only fruits promoted to be eaten daily due to its healthy fats. Mushrooms are prebiotics for the micrbiome — augmenting the growth of beneficial bacteria such as Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium. White rice has minimal lectins (the defensive proteins in the hull and seeds of plants to prevent being eaten), which means it’s a gentle carb for sensitive guts.
