10 gut health food

Not only are kiwis high in fiber, but they also contain an enzyme called actinidin, which aids in the breakdown of protein, allowing us to digest meat, fish, and other protein sources. Blend them into this super-green smoothie for a gut-healthy start to your day.

This traditional Japanese ingredient is created from fermented soybeans and contains millions of helpful bacteria that promote a healthy stomach and digestion.   

Miso

Starchy sweet potatoes are abundant in fiber and beneficial plant sterols. To prepare this comforting vegan curry, combine lentils (another fiber-rich meal) and anti-inflammatory turmeric.

Mushrooms are often inexpensive, easy to prepare, and nutritious. They also include substances such as beta glucan, which appear to serve as prebiotics, fueling healthy bacteria in the stomach.

Sauerkraut is produced from fermented cabbage, so it's easy to digest and rich in probiotics. It's recommended to create your own sauerkraut because pre-packaged sauerkraut may be pasteurized to lengthen its shelf life, which kills the beneficial bacteria.

Broccoli includes sulphur, which promotes intestinal health and hence strengthens your immune system. We've paired it with soba noodles, edamame beans, and peanuts to create a fresh and nutritious supper.

If you want to boost your fiber consumption, go no further than your kitchen pantry. Chickpeas are high in fiber, which promotes a healthy digestive system and alleviates gastrointestinal troubles. To make this wonderful chickpea curry, combine with tikka paste, paneer, and yogurt, which includes probiotics.

Figs are a natural laxative due to their high fiber content. This fiber also includes prebiotic qualities, which nourish the healthy bacteria in the gut and improve digestive health. When in season, use them in a variety of meals, from oatmeal to a light and spicy salad.

Kimchi

We love kimchi; it's a sour, spicy, and acidic flavor bomb. It is thought to enhance gut health and reduce inflammation, similar to other fermented foods. Make it into a simple tray bake with tofu, broccoli, baby corn, and rice.  

Sourdough

Sourdough is one of the healthiest bread options, particularly for our stomachs, due to its unique fermentation process. Don't be frightened to make your own loaf; try our step-by-step starter recipe.
