The Mexican cuisine is really on trend at the moment, which is handy for our health and our budgets. This cuisine boasts ingredients that are very affordable, tasty and offer so much bang for your buck when it comes to nutrition. Corn and legumes that feature in this dish are high in resistant starch, which assists digestion in the small bowel. This stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria that create a fatty acid called butyrate. This fatty acid can be protective against bowel cancer and also reduce the rise in blood glucose levels after a meal – great for people living with diabetes and prediabetes. Enjoy this bacteria boosting meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
