If you’re lacking energy, it may not only be stress or lack of sleep that’s slowing you down. Getting more energy could be as simple getting good eats for your gut! That’s right, there are foods and meals that are especially healing for the colony of bacteria that live in your large intestines, called the microbiome. When your bacteria are unbalance (more bad than good) it could mean lack of energy, poor digestion, weakened immune system and brain fog.  Eating good things for your gut start by noshing on a plant based diet!

Fiber and Prebiotic Foods

CARROTS

Fiber isn’t just important for weight loss and digestion, it’s crucial for our gut flora since that’s what they eat.  And we can’t be our healthiest without them – since these good bacteria are responsible for manufacturing B vitamins, vitamin K,  as well as strengthening our immunity, and breaking down complex carbohydrates.  So how do you make sure they get what they need?  It’s easy –  add plenty of prebiotics foods like carrots, asparagus, and artichokes. They are rich in a particular fiber called inulin, that the good bugs love.

Limit Gluten

MILLET

Not everyone has gluten sensitivities but giving gluten a rest for a few days when you’re feeling slow, limiting gluten when you feel the drag is a good idea since gluten has been show to activate allergies, and can be tough to digest for those with sensitive stomachs.  Don’t go for the package gluten free products since they can be loaded with sugar, unhealthy fats and salt.  Enjoy naturally gluten free grains instead like millet, quinoa, and brown rice.  If you want to learn the 101 on these grains while you go gluten free follow my 3 day mini cleanse.
