Good morning, we made this Green Goddess Hummus Toast because we love you a brunch. It’s a delicious, gut-healthy meal that’s full of fresh, of-the-earth ingredients. To make your own, blend together chickpeas, fresh spinach, avocado, garlic, peppermint leaves, lemon juice, honey, and our probiotic farmer cheese in a food processor for the creamiest, most nutritious hummus you’ve ever tasted. Chickpeas have protein and fiber that slows digestion and helps to promote fullness. Avocado is a nutritious fruit that is loaded with healthy fats, fiber, and more potassium than a banana. Farmer Cheese is a tart and tangy mild soft cheese with 13 grams of protein per serving and 12 live and active probiotic cultures. Spread the hummus on warm pita bread or naan and top with green onion, cooked peas, mint leaves, asparagus, and farmer cheese crumbles. This is food that will make you feel good from the inside out. With its countless health benefits, you’ll get that goddess glow.
Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You Actually Need to Know
With increasing research linking the correlation between probiotics, gut health, and immunity, it’s no secret that the integrity of our gut is vital to our health. Although additional factors such as stress, antibiotic usage, and individual health conditions can contribute to the condition of our gut, a focus on healthy food choices is one of the easiest ways to support the microbiome.
Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunity, improve allergies, and improve digestion.
Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school-age years. In addition, kefir made from whole fat milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.
