Eat The Rainbow
Coronavirus (the infection) and COVID-19 (the disease it causes) are uppermost in the nation’s psyche and the ONS have stated that only 4% of the population have been infected (as of 1st week in May 2020)
Key to our immunity of COVID-19 is the microbiome – the bugs in our gut which do so much for us, including manufacturing our vitamins as well as helping control our weight and blood sugar and reducing our diabetes risk.
Look after your bugs and they’ll look after you!
So no more Chocolate, Cakes, Crisps or Doritos… Instead aim for lots of colours and variety. A rich and varied diet will support a diverse and varied, and therefore resilient, microbiome.
Setting yourself a challenge at the beginning of every week for your diet is essential. This week, we want you to try 3 new recipes that are low carb and contain at least 1 if your 5 a day.
