In the UK we consume on average 17 – 20% protein a day and in the US its 20%+ protein a day which often leads to hard to shift weight gain, unwanted IBS symptoms and UTI’s as the excess nitrogen created in protein break down can only leave the body via the kidneys and bladder.

When following a balanced healthy IBS free diet your body only requires 10 – 15% protein a day. Every gym bunny will tell you otherwise but are they trying to sell you their unnecessary protein products?

So, if you are feeling tired, groggy and full of too much protein this quick and easy lunch that is full of flavour and essential nutrients including B Vitamins, Vitamins C and K as well as a good sources of Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorous. Plus good quality starchy carbs to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
