A Week of Microbiome Diet Recipes

When it comes to a microbiome diet, there’s no one-size-fits-all (although The Microbiome Diet by Dr. Raphael Kellman is one of the better-known regimens). Instead, the idea is to focus on foods that are good for gut health (think: healthy fats, lean protein and plenty of vegetables), while limiting those that are not (the usual suspects: sugar, processed foods and red meat). Here, 21 meals that fit the bill. 

What the Heck Is a Microbiome (and Why Should You Care About Yours)?
