HEALTH BENEFITS OF ENCHILADAS
Oranges are a great source of prebiotic fiber! This is the type of fiber that feeds your good gut microbes and helps them thrive! When those microbes are well nourish, your gut is able to heal itself and digestion runs smoother. Oranges are also a good source of potassium, which is essential for heart function, nerve function and muscle contraction.
One cup of cannellini beans contains approximately 15 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber! This plant powerhouse is great to add into soups, salads or enchiladas to make a complete meal! These beans are also high in copper, which primarily is needed in energy production as well as iron metabolism!
Brussels are cruciferous vegetables packed with vitamin K, vitamin C, folate, fiber and tons more! Not only are these guys nutrient dense, but they also contain some incredible health benefits from anti-inflammatory properties to supporting cardiovascular and digestive health.
