Healthy Gut Dip
Despite its unappealing name, this Healthy Gut Dip really does taste great. It is packed with gut friendly bacteria that will help build up your good bacteria in your gut and since a large proportion of our immune system is in our gut, it will also strengthen your immune system.
It is essentially a modified Tzatziki dip. I must admit I do often buy tzatziki from the supermarket because it is a healthier version of some other types of mayonnaise accompaniments.
However, after making this, the bought version just doesn’t cut it. This has a fresh and zingy flavour, perfect with chicken or fish dishes.
Why don’t you try it for yourself ? here is the recipe:
