New Recipe: Prawn, Eggplant & Kale Curry

This Prawn, Eggplant & Kale Curry recipe came about due to the lack of SIBO friendly (phase 1 specific) recipes available that go beyond a serve of protein and one spear of asparagus! If you’re unfamiliar with SIBO, please have a read of our article Understanding Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth here.

SIBO can be a challenging condition to treat, however when you’re equipped with delicious recipes and the right practitioner support, you will be on your way to optimal health before you know it!
