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.
