Just like there are “good” fats, there’s also good types of bacteria and yeasts that we actually WANT in our bodies. Without probiotics, our bodies are prone to disease and inflammation so it’s good that we eat them on a regular basis to maintain a healthy gut.
Our gut is even called our “second brain” since it’s directly connected to our mood and how we think. Bottom line: when our gut is balanced, our brain feels happy.
While plain yogurt infused with a spoonful of Berry Bee Honey is always a yummy way to nourish your gut if you enjoy dairy, here are three DELISH dairy-free ways to get in your probiotics!
I love sipping a fizzy glass of Kevita® Master Brew Kombucha™! With live probiotics and active cultures, KeVita is my easy and delicious way to increase daily probiotic consumption and it’s also yeast-free! My fave is their citrus flavor, which is sweet and refreshing, and has 80mg of organic caffeine, making this a great afternoon pick-me-up!
Oh, and KeVita’s Master Brew Kombucha line features 9 sparkling and yummy flavors! Check out all the flavors here!
For that oh-so-yummy umami flavor, I like to mix in miso paste into my soups and salad dressings. This Asian seasoning is made by fermenting a combo of barley, brown rice, soybeans, and other grains with a specific fungus. In addition to providing probiotics, miso is also a wonderful source of protein, manganese, copper, vitamin K, and zinc!
Pickled Planet Sauerkraut is a staple in my superfood salads! In addition to being crispy, salty, and simply delicious, this pickled cabbage helps your body produce energy (thanks to its high levels of iron!) and promotes healthy eyes and skin due to its assortment of carotenes and punch of vitamin A! If you’re tossing up a Japanese-style salad, I love their Velvet Sea Sauerkraut since it also features burdock, ginger, and two types of seaweed.
