Stone fruit (plum, peach, apricot, etc) are currently in season and are an easy way to jazz up your regular salad! With only 2 steps, this recipe is a quick and easy way to jam a whole bunch of nutrients in at once… And if you’re struggling with bowel-related issues, it’s a great fix-me-up!

The peaches and plums are not only a cheap ingredient at this time of year, but they also contain both soluble and insoluble fibre. The soluble portion of fibre is fermented in our lower GI tract and therefore attracts water, making it easier to pass a stool. While the insoluble part is not digested and therefore helps bring bulk to your stools. The combination of these two is the perfect recipe for easily passed, regular bowel movements.

TIP: Ensure to keep the skin on these fruits, even when having them as a snack, to gain all the benefits from the fibres!
