The state of your gut affects so many aspects of your health including your mental health, immune system, risk of chronic disease and skin health. You may have heard of the term “gut microbiome.” This is where about 500 different microorganisms live in your large intestine. It is key to have a healthy balance of the “good” microorganisms. There are many ways to heal and balance your gut including a healthy diet low in processed, sugary and fatty foods. For the connection between your gut and skin health, adding certain dietary components, while limiting others, can help reduce acne, fine lines, discoloration and dullness.
We have a meal plan for you including all the components needed to “reset” your gut to promote healthy digestion, detoxification and glowing skin. This week’s meal plan includes highly alkaline foods, antioxidants, zinc and healthy fats. Outside of diet, for a healthy gut, be sure to be consuming plenty of water, getting a good night’s sleep, eat slow and work on lowering your stress levels. Be sure to read the “to reduce waste and save time” tips for each dinner!
