Aim for a balance of both prebiotic and probiotic fibers. Prebiotics feed the good gut bacteria and probiotics replenish gut bacteria.
Onions, garlic, chicory root leeks, asparagus, banana, barley, oats, cocoa, and flaxseeds are all excellent prebiotic fiber sources!
Yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi, miso and pickles are the best for probiotics!
These are plant foods packed with antioxidants. Reach for dark chocolate, grapes, green tea, broccoli, and blueberries!
Having a wide variety of different foods is key! Aim to count colors when thinking about your next meal.
Salmon, cold-water fish, chia seeds, flax seeds, and walnuts are packed with them!
Staying well hydrated and avoiding too much alcohol, caffeine, and sugar-sweetened beverages is super important for gut health!
