2022 • Pavilion Books
The microbes in our gut are exceptionally clever, helping to control blood sugar, produce vitamins, and manage cholesterol and hormonal balance, preventing us from getting infections, controlling the calories we absorb and store, communicating with the nervous system and brain, and much more. The food we eat (and how we eat it) can have a huge impact on the number and type of microbes living in the gut and how it physically works.
Three important markers are variety, fiber, and ferments, each covered in detail in this book. Chapters cover meals, drinks, and snacks, as well as fermenting and pickling how tos and a multitude of tips to help make our food, drink, and eating habits more gut-friendly. The recipes are designed with flexibility in mind: expect abundant salads and familiar home comforts packed with flavor and nutrition.
