Breakfast is served with our savory Prosciutto Avocado Farmer Cheese Toast. To prep, spread our farmer cheese on two slices of toasted whole wheat bread. Pile on avocado for omega-3 fatty acids. For protein, layer thinly-sliced prosciutto, and soft-boiled eggs. Then sprinkle red pepper flakes on top. The prebiotic dietary fiber in the avocados serves as fuel for the probiotics in our farmer cheese, so it’s a gut-healthy way to Toast Tuesday.
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.
