It shouldn’t be a big surprise that there’s a deluge of chronic disease with the decline of nutrient-dense foods and poor choices. A diet filled with toxic Frankenfoods, processed sludge, high sugar and fat foods and pharmaceuticals push our bodies to the extreme. Our bodies were not designed to digest unnatural products and as a result, we have a body out of balance and persistent health issues, and it all starts in the gut. Did you know we carry tens of trillions of micros in our gut, and they can be influencing our health? My newest book, The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide, A Vegetarian Plan for Balancing Your Gut Flora, explores the link between your gut microbiome and your overall health.

Our guts ecosystem is impacted by our dietary choices, and with more and more evidence appearing, it’s difficult to ignore the fact that changes in the gut microbiome may stem from poor dietary choices and could be a driver of disease. The bacteria in our gut plays an important role in digestion. Two bacteria are imperative to maintaining a healthy gut are probiotics and prebiotics.
Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that act as food for the probiotics. They also help probiotics grow and remain in your digestive system. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that naturally live and thrive in the colon. Many conditions can compromise this healthy balance from a poor diet to overuse of antibiotics.
This book will help you understand and appreciate the significant role both prebiotics and probiotics play in our overall health. It provides recommendations on how to practice biotic-balanced living through an 8-Step Biotic-Balanced Program. The key factor is our diet. To start us off, they’ve included 175 irresistible vegetarian recipes that will assist us in making a transition to a healthy diet easily, deliciously and without sacrifice.
I was impressed with the diversity of tasty recipes they offer. They taste like your cheating, but they’re actually good for you. There are recipes for every meal of the day and snacks. We loved the Cocoa Banana Mini Muffins and the Cheesy Avocado Dip. They’re high in fiber, choke with healthy ingredients and scrumptious. Following this program will supply our bodies with optimal nutrition and reduce our risk to develop health issues. You’ll also shed a few pounds.
