Go 2s: fibre in the form of fruit, potatoes, nuts, oats, lentils and brown rice; Good fats like oily fish, avocados, nuts, seeds and olive oil; Good carbs like whole grains, brown rice and pasta, quinoa, nuts, beans and pulses; Phyto nutrients found in red, orange, yellow and dark green leafy veg, garlic, onions chives and dark chocolate (yes - it’s on the list); Foods that are high in yeast and bacteria like sauerkraut, kombucha or kefir.
