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.
Monday Breakfast: Arugula, Romaine and Pear Smoothie Bowl
Possibly the most beautiful breakfast in the entire universe.
Monday Lunch: Veggie Niçoise Salad with Red Curry Green Beans
This should keep you going until dinner.
Monday Dinner: Cauliflower Steaks with Lemon-Herb Sauce
Trust us—you won’t even miss the filet mignon.
Tuesday Breakfast: Gut Healthy Smoothie
Need to fuel on the go? No problem.
Tuesday Lunch: Spicy Carrot Salad with Chickpeas and Parsley
No soggy leaves for you.
Tuesday Dinner: Coconut and Ginger Pumpkin Soup
Perfect for curling up on the sofa with Netflix.

Practically made for Instagram.
