The chicken breasts provide a great source of protein, aiding muscle mass as well as keeping you fuller for longer. The kidney beans (or any bean you want) provides a punch of gut-healthy fibre for those microbes in our guts. Not only that, but kidney beans are a source of key nutrients such as folate, iron, vitamin B1 (Thiamine), and 3 tbsp count towards one of your 5-a-day. This recipe also provides approximately 12 different plant sources, which is almost half the recommended 30 different place sources per week. Having a variety of different plants in your diet is essential to maintaining and gaining a large microbiome diversity.
