Feed Your Gut: March Edition


With seasonal foods that naturally create plant-diversity, have more flavor and are more affordable!


Within your gut lives a whole big world of bacteria and other microorganisms and the quality of their life directly impacts the quality of yours.


One of the best things we can do to help them thrive and to build a diverse, active, strong community is to feed them what they love...plant fiber!


Different species thrive off of different types of plant fibers, so it's important to eat a wide variety.


One way to do that without completely transforming your whole way of eating and getting totally overwhelmed...


Add seasonal foods to your meal plan each week.


If you do this every week. even just one, that's 4 new plant foods a month for a total of 52 a year!


Small changes can add up to big results.


My challenge to you...


Pick one food a week from this list for March.


Find a recipe or two (I've given you lots of options to help get you started).


And add it to your meal plan so you and your kids can start increasing your plant-diversity or plant points as we like to call them!


Just one bite of food can have an impact on your gut microbiome 50 generations deep. So don't discount the power of simply trying a new gut-friendly food!


Use this chart like a bingo card and see how many plants you can check off this week or this month. Share you cards and creations with me on Instagram so I can see what you're feeding those good gut bugs and celebrate your little wins on the journey to becoming a healthier version of you! You can find me @coachcalie.
