By now you know that a healthy gut is essential to proper immune function. And you also know that a happy gut means a healthy, diverse gut flora. 

The gut microbiome is composed of trillions of microorganisms that depend on the human diet for their main source of energy [1]. So, when you’re choosing foods, remember that you’re not eating for one; you’re eating for trillions. Soluble fibers bind toxins and feed gut microbes. Some soluble fibers--prebiotics--feed only the helpful bacteria in your gut--called probiotics. Meanwhile, insoluble fibers help bulk stool and ensure movement of soluble fiber to the colon, where the majority of the gut microbiome lives [2]. 

This week, try adding fiber-rich foods to your diet to enhance to give gut health an extra boost. Here are a few ideas: 

You can also support gut health by adding probiotic-rich foods to your diet. Here are a few examples: sauerkraut, kimchi, yogurt, natto, and drinks like kombucha or kefir. 



  1. Make grains or beans in large batches ahead of time and store in the fridge. Try adding grains or beans to your salads.

  2. Eating out: Ask for the brown rice instead of the refined pasta or wrap.

  3. Instead of soda, try drinking kombucha, water or kefir, all rich in probiotics.
