Fermented Foods
Building a Healthy Gut Microbiome


Eat the rainbow, mostly plants, and add a variety of fermented foods to your diet.  The fermentation process not only maintains the vitamin content of raw food, but can create new vitamins, enzymes, and friendly probiotic bacteria. These friendly bacteria in the digestive system have a myriad of health benefits.

Some of the health benefits are:

  • Helps the body assimilate more nutrition
  • Helps digestion, acid reflux and heartburn
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Helps get rid of toxins and functions as free-radical scavengers

Some ways to include a variety of probiotic foods into your diet:

  • Start your day with a kefir or yogurt smoothie
  • Drink Miso soup
  • Keep a few store-bought ferments in your fridge (sauerkraut, fermented pickles, kimchi, tempeh, labneh, sourdough crackers or bread, kombucha) and add them to your diet. Start out slowly to test your body’s adjustment, then increase as desired.
