What Are Gut Friendly Foods?


Many gut friendly foods are rich in prebiotics, which are carbohydrates that help stimulate the development of gut bacteria. Prebiotics are not digested by humans but they provide a food source for gut bacteria, which can be found in bananas, onions, garlic, and many other plant-based ingredients. This is why it’s important to eat gut-friendly foods on a regular basis!

What are some of these foods?

More foods include:
-“Cabbage family” veggies (i.e., cauliflower, broccoli)
-Oatmeal and other fiber-rich whole grains like quinoa or buckwheat
-“Pulses”, which are legumes that can be used as a protein source including chickpeas, lentils, black beans, etc.
-“Raw cultured dairy” products such as yogurt containing “live active cultures“. Yogurt is also high in gut-friendly probiotics. Examples of raw cultured dairy include goat’s milk kefir or sheep’s milk cheese made from raw grass-fed animals’ milk.
