Earlier this week we talked about the difference between probiotics and prebiotics. Now let’s look at what you can eat and drink to take in these helpful bacteria and their own food sources.
• Probiotics (note that most are fermented in some way):
- Traditional Fermented Buttermilk
- Fermented Cheeses, such as Gouda
• Prebiotics (these contain the fiber that feeds probiotics):
- Legumes, Beans and Peas
- Jerusalem Artichokes (not the same as regular artichokes)
- Dandelion greens
