Tempeh is a fermented soy product, packed with probiotics that support gut health and essential amino acids that are essential for muscle repair and growth. Ginger is known for its anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting properties, aiding digestion and can help relieve constipation. Coconut rice, made with coconut milk, provides a healthier, creamier, lower-glycemic alternative than regular rice, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable.
