I am a frequent

You Are What You Eat, So Make Healthy Choices
The truth of the old adage that “you are what you eat” is becoming increasingly clear the more we learn about the microbiome and its intricate
role in health. The best way to optimize your gut flora, and your overall health, is through your diet. Fermented foods are the best route
to optimal digestive health, as long as you eat the traditionally made, unpasteurized versions.
Healthy choices include lassi (an Indian yoghurt drink, traditionally enjoyed before dinner), fermented grass-fed organic milk such as kefir, various pickled
fermentations of cabbage, turnips, eggplant, cucumbers, onions, squash, and carrots, and natto
(fermented soy). Fermented vegetables are an excellent choice to supply beneficial bacteria to your gut.
As an added bonus, they can also a great source of vitamin
K2 if you ferment your own using the proper starter culture. Another wise choice is to simply swap processed foods for real foods, as described in my nutrition
plan. People have thrived on vegetables, meats, eggs, fruits, and other whole foods for centuries, while processed foods were only recently invented.
Many of the top executives and scientists at leading processed food companies actually avoid their own foods for a variety of health reasons. If you want some ideas of delicious, healthy foods to get started eating
right, here are 18 excellent foods packed with health-promoting
compounds like antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals known to play a role in longevity.
