XPT Challenges You To Feed Your Gut Bacteria

Intestines with Gut Bacteria on Blackboard 

FEED YOUR BUGS

We’re not suggesting you leave crumbs for the insects in your home or backyard.  This week we’re focusing on our gut bacteria. 

Probiotics often get all the attention.  These are fermented or cultured foods that produce beneficial gut flora, like yogurt, kimchi, and miso.  But prebiotics are equally valuable. When eaten, the un-digestible fibers in these foods nourish and grow the probiotics in your lower GI tract.  Together, they are symbiotic – improving the diversity and health of the gut microbiota!

What to reach for? 

Asparagus, banana, jicama, garlic, onion, oats, and legumes (beans, lentils, and peas). 

We challenge you to work these prebiotic-rich plant-based foods into your meals and snacks this week.

Have ideas for how you’ll do it?  Share with us in a comment here at xptlife.com
