3 Foods to Optimize Gut Health
If you are on a gut healing journey, then you are probably in the midst of trying to navigate the world of nutrition! This can be extremely overwhelming, but we are here to make gut health SIMPLE!
All foods fit into a happy and healthy diet, but there are some foods that are SUPERHEROES when it comes to your gut health. If you don’t know where to start, here are three foods that you can include in your meals to help decrease bloating and heal your gut at the same time!
Beets are an AMAZING source of polyphenols, which are incredible for the gut. Since beets are so deep in color, that means they have all of those rich nutrients that we are looking for when trying to heal our gut lining. The polyphenols found in beets will help increase the amount of good gut bacteria which will diversify your microbiome. The more good gut bacteria, the happier your gut (and you) will be!
This food may seem like a wild card, but it is not as strange as you might think. Dandelion greens are considered bitters, which are AMAZING for optimal digestion. They help produce bile in our bodies, which in turn, will break down fats. If you find that you are bloated, try including some dandelion greens in your next meal to soothe your upset stomach.
Broccoli may just seem like the average vegetable, but it really packs a punch when you look at it up close! Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable which means it is incredibly rich in fiber, and helps feed the good bacteria in your gut. It also is great for the liver which will help with overall detoxification in the body. Less toxins = feeling better.
