You probably know that protein is beneficial for building and maintaining muscle, but did you know that fibre is crucial to the process as well? Repairing muscle tissue is a dynamic process that results in metabolic waste. This metabolic waste comes to be processed in the liver and excreted via the bile, into the intestines. If inadequate fibre is present, these products can be partially resorbed and continue to circulate in the body. Try this fantastic bread recipe from Food52 that absolutely packs loads of fibre and nutrition in every slice. It is super simple to make, though you will need to start at least 2 hours ahead. It is the perfect way to start the day. Try topping it with some smashed avocado and poached egg.
