It’s a simple toast recipe made with our gut-healthy farmer cheese, which has 10 live and active probiotic cultures. Spread it on sliced sourdough bread, then top with pan-roasted vegetables. We diced up red pepper, tomato, and onion for vitamin C as well as zucchini and eggplant for antioxidants, then sautéed them in a hot pan of oil, salt, pepper, and mixed garlic. For the finale, top your toast with a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Your family will love this toast so much, you’ll get an encore to make another serving tomorrow!
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.
