Sesame Shrimp Noodle Bowl
If you’re not sure what to do with those frozen veggies in the back of your freezer, look no further! This quick and easy one-pan recipe offers beneficial prebiotics for your gut from buckwheat. Since frozen vegetables are blanched and frozen immediately after harvest, their vitamins and minerals are preserved - unlike fresh vegetables, which start to degrade the moment they begin to travel to your grocery store shelf. Seasoned with ginger, this naturally gluten-free recipe may help symptoms associated with IBS.
