Poke bowl Super Six style

25 mins

Making a colourful, fresh, omega 3-fuelled salmon poke bowl at home is a must during the summer. And this one in particular is filled to the brim with what is known as the Super Six: vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, legumes (beans and pulses), nuts and seeds and herbs and spices.

Science fact:

A plant is a food that has been grown. There are six main plant groups, which we call the Super Six: vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, legumes (beans and pulses), nuts and seeds and herbs and spices. Researchers at the University of Bergen found that eating across the Super Six can add up to a decade of healthy years to your life.

When it comes to gut health, studies have linked omega-3 intake with increased gut bacteria diversity as well as with microbes that produce the gut-loving short chain fatty acids (SCFA). These clever little SCFAs in the gut (especially one called butyrate) are thought to play a role in protecting us against things like bowel cancer, diabetes and depression.
