Breakfast roasted radish, asparagus, kale and puy lentils

Updated: Mar 20, 2019

Gut LOVE ..... I cannot go without breakfast, it completely sets me up for the day! ..... One of my big interests is building up my clients microbiome diversity, basically dialling up your friendly bacteria in your gut so you can feel good and optimise your health. A bacterial overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria can be linked to many many symptoms and not just gut related. ..... Our friendly bacteria touch virtually every aspect of our health and they LOVE to feed on fibre and different types of fibre ...... So that means the more variety of veg, fruits, herbs, spices, nuts, seeds and pulses you can eat.. the better...these tiny little superheroes in our gut will be Happy and if they are happy WE ARE HAPPY ..... Who eats veg for breakfast... not many... breakfast especially on the weekend is a great time to get some extra veg in. My favourite is different roasted veg with some poached eggs with a sprinkling of seaweed. ...... There is so much science now to support that your environment (food, drink, household etc.…) seems to have an overwhelming effect on your gut microbiome. ..... The good news is that your microbiome can change in a matter of days... if you change your diet. ..... Tips to support your microbiome

1: Eat a varied diet of Veg & Fruit daily especially of all different rainbow colours 2: Add fresh and dried herbs and spices where you can, these guys are powerhouses of nutrients 3: Eat some fermented dairy, kefir and 24 hour fermented yogurt being the best 4: Eat fermented veg like sauerkraut and kimchi 5: Get out into nature, it’s a world of bacteria out there 6: Avoid refined sugar and carbs, they feed the bad guys and fuel dysbiosis which is unbalanced bacteria and can cause problems
