Hey, honey! 🍯 What’s for lunch? This honey-covered #ToastTuesday dish is easy and inviting. It starts with our versatile Farmer Cheese, which contains 12 live and active probiotic cultures to help support a healthy microbiome for physical health and mental wellbeing. We whip our cheese and blend it with a touch of port-wine for a delicate, smooth flavor profile. Soft, succulent slices of baked pear are laid atop perfectly crisp pieces of sourdough toast and then drizzled with sweet, earthy truffle honey. The result is light, enchanting, and healthy.
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.
