Our microbiome is key to our health.
It directly helps us absorb nourishment, creating the building blocks for our overall health and wellness.
The food we eat builds our microbiome. Eating different kinds of plant-based foods builds the diversity and resilience of our gut. More processed foods do not have these benefits and can deplete our gut health.
Fermented foods also help. Sauerkraut, yogurt, and kombucha are probiotic foods and support gut health of the microbiome. High plant fiber foods also feed the microbiome specifically and keep it thriving.
Mindful awareness helps us find the right foods for our gut. There is no one size fits all nutrition plan. Instead, we can use mindful awareness to pay attention to which foods feel good to our body when we eat them.
The gut microbiome is a cornerstone of our health. It is a way to have a conversation between our inner and outer worlds that leaves us nourished and whole.
