Black Bean Curry Stew

A great recipe to warm up to on cold wintry days, this comforting stew is also great to support digestive health. Black beans are rich in fibre, iron, magnesium, potassium, and folic acid. Butternut squash is another amazingly nutrient-rich food that keeps the colon healthier.
