Gut problems can be inconvenient, painful, paralysing and can stop you from enjoying eating out, dining with friends or being more spontaneous and adventurous in your food choices.

Kombucha has been all the rage for a while now, but have you ever tried to make a kombucha chia seed smoothie? If not, now’s the time to try!
What is kombucha? It’s a fermented drink—one that has been around for thousands of years—that contains an array of gut-boosting, detoxifying properties. The ancient remedy can also perpetuate weight loss, boost your energy, and improve your immune system.
It seems too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Well, you can even mix this fermented tea with other whole, nutritious foods for the ultimate gut-health boost.
This Kombucha Chia Seed Smoothie calls for kombucha (of course), chia seeds, and you can opt to add either beet or carrot juice.
The kombucha in this smoothie provides your gut with a healthy dose of probiotics while the chia seeds provide antioxidants, fibre, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, to name a few.
If you grow your own kombucha, this smoothie can be super easy to make. Will you give it a try?
It may hard (and annoying) for vegans to watch their friends and family easily dump yoghurt into a bowl for breakfast when they have to come up with creative recipes. However, now vegans (and non-vegans looking for a healthy, gut-loving recipe) can make their own yoghurt with cashew nuts!
Better yet, the cashew nuts in this yoghurt encompass a lot of protein.
The Homemade Probiotic Cashew Yoghurt recipe requires you to soak two cups of cashews for around eight hours, and you will also need water, powder from two probiotic capsules, and two to three tablespoons of Grade B maple syrup. It doesn’t seem hard to make, does it?
Although cashew nuts may be expensive, they contain several benefits that make the additional cost worth it. For example, cashews can act as a prebiotic, which can feed probiotics; this yoghurt dish beautifully fuses probiotics and prebiotics, so your gut can experience a plethora of benefits.
This recipe also asks for powder from two probiotic capsules and if you are out of probiotic capsules, we can help!
We’ve always loved Lifestream Advanced Probiotic Metabolise 60 Capsules, which works to grow healthy bacteria in your gut, propels weight loss, promotes healthy cholesterol levels, and balances your blood sugar levels.
This recipe may be a little more complex than the previous two, but it’s totally worth making.
Sauerkraut, a fermented cabbage, contains a crazy amount of probiotics. This potent probiotic source encompasses the typical, essential probiotic properties— it boosts your immune system, promotes the healthy growth of bacteria in your gut, may aid weight loss, eases IBS symptoms, etc.
You can make your own sauerkraut at home, too! Want to make your own sauerkraut? Click here for an easy recipe.
Now, onto the real recipe: Sauerkraut Mushroom Soup. This recipe requires a lot of ingredients, but your gut will thank you for taking the time to make it. Plus, every ingredient within this soup contains health benefits. For example, this recipe asks for a carrot, garlic, celery, either parsnip or potato, mushrooms (of course), bay leaves, and vegetable broth, to name a few.
