Quinoa is a whole grain rich in fiber and protein, that promotes regular bowel movements and encourages the flourishing of beneficial gut flora. Sweet potatoes provide an excellent source of complex carbs, offering energy to the body, while kale and parsley contribute to supporting gut diversity.
Regarding the toppings, the seeds and olive oil contain healthy fats abundant in omega-3s, which play a crucial role in nutrient absorption and have anti-inflammatory functions.
