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. Beetroot is a prebiotic for the micrbiome — augmenting the growth of beneficial bacteria for a healthy gut, and is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance. 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.
