PREBIOTICS AND PROBIOTICS
Watch (or listen while getting ready for your day) this short video. VERY FASCINATING!
Did you know bacteria influenced us THIS much?
We should ALL strive to get our PREbiotics and PRObiotcs from real food!
Here's a list of food rich in PREBIOTICS (these are vagan friendly, too!):
Onions, shallots, and spring onions
Red kidney beans, baked beans, and soybeans
NUTS AND SEEDS
Examples of ways to add PREBIOTICS to your diet:
eating high-fiber breakfast cereals with added nuts and seeds
eating whole-grain bread
snacking on fruits, nuts, and seeds
adding legumes to soups and salads
reading food labels and selecting products with a high fiber content
Here's a list of DAIRY FOODS rich in PROBIOTICS:
aged cheeses, such as cheddar, gouda, or mozzarella
kefir, a probiotic milk drink
traditional buttermilk (must not be cultured)
Here's a list of NON-DAIRY FOODS rich in PROBIOTICS:
fresh, sour dill pickles
kombucha, a fermented tea
natto, a food made from fermented soybeans
tempeh, a popular meat substitute
water or brine-cured olives
Examples of ways to add probiotic foods to a healthful diet include:
Enjoying a breakfast of probiotic yogurt with berries, flax seeds, and nuts.
Cooking a stir-fry, using tempeh as a meat replacement. However, it is best to incorporate tempeh at the end of cooking as excessive heating can destroy the active cultures.
Incorporating miso into soups. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has a recipe for black bean soup with miso and ginger.
Drinking probiotic-rich beverages, such as kefir or kombucha, as a mid-morning snack.
Serving sauerkraut as a side dish to main meals.
It is essential to keep in mind that certain foods, especially yogurt, may contain added sugars.
Look for foods that have minimal artificial sweeteners, sugars, and other artificial flavorings.
Not all fermented foods contain live cultures. Examples of fermented foods that do not have probiotics include:
These and other foods like them go through additional processing that inactivates the live cultures. Examples of these processes include baking, filtering, or pasteurization.
TODAY’S NUTRITIONAL CHALLENGE IS SIMPLE:
Look at what you currently eat in your diet. Do you already eat your PRE and PRObiotics?
If the answer is "NO", what foods are you willing to try adding to your diet?
