Gut Healthy Foods for Good Health

Squeeze More Goodness Into Your Diet

Metro interviewed me on how to squeeze your five-a-day fruit and vegetable portions into your day following a study that revealed that only a quarter of adults eat their recommended five-a-day.

Enjoy Eating Fruit and Vegetables

The five-a-day portions of fruit and vegetables are recommended because they are packed with critical daily nutrients.

What is also absolutely important is the enjoyment of eating gut-healthy, anti-inflammatory food.

‘I create recipes people love to make time and again for pleasure and health.’

I know I say this a lot, but eating is a celebration, and it shouldn’t be a chore with the understanding that not everyone loves to eat a side of green beans or an apple.

I consider this when creating recipes for Eat Burn Sleep’s anti-inflammatory lifestyle protocol.

Eating is a Celebration

After scientific research on the right foods and combinations to maximize gut health, flavor and appearance come into play.

Being a pleasure to the eye plays a huge part in the digestion of food. I will talk about digestion and inflammation in another article soon.

Food Has to be Enjoyable

I am a food lover. Food cannot be bland. It has to be delicious as well as nutrient-rich!

Gut-healthy food is to be enjoyed and not be too complicated.

So, I love that my anti-inflammatory recipes surprise and inspire – and they ensure that five-a-day maintenance is achieved.

You don’t need to be an excellent cook to have good food. Many gut health recipes have a minimum fuss with maximum flavor and nutrition.

So, I suggest you experiment and try different ways to incorporate those necessary nutrients from fruits and vegetables.

It could be baking or roasting. Once you have played around, you will get more vegetables and fruit in your family’s diet without them realizing it.

‘Figure out what makes your five-a-day taste best for you!’
