Gut Menu: Healthy Gut Healthy You

HRP Gut Foods.png

The foods you eat matter. Most diseases and essentially all chronic diseases stem from a lack of nutrition. We get enough calories but we aren't getting sufficient nutrients - that is the definition of malnutrition. Your gut, if not fed properly, is the start of malnutrition. Start by chewing your food. The enzymes released in your mouth start the digestion process as does thorough mastication.

Choose your food with care - you and your health are worth it. Eat a balanced diet including foods that feed your gut including your gut microbiome (beneficial bacteria in your gut). Pro- and Pre-biotic foods must be eaten regularly. Also, consume food that reduces inflammation, is easy to digest, and destroys pathogens (bad bacteria, mold, virus, and other microbes).
