Eating for gut health – learning how to nurture the “second brain”

Research shows that diet and gut health are closely linked. Good bacteria in the gut help to play a critical role in digestion, immune function and even weight management. Eating the right foods encourages good gut bacteria and furthermore certain food intolerances can be linked to poor quality bacteria in the gut.

So what should you be eating to boost beneficial bacteria, given that there’s an overwhelming wealth of information out there? In this class we aim to unpick fact from fiction and demonstrate through a selection of carefully curated recipes how you can immediately start to improve your gut health and general well-being.

As a jumping off point, we will be looking at incorporating the following into your diet:

  • High-fibre foods
  • Plant-based foods
  • Fermented foods
  • Collagen boosting foods
  • 30 ingredients a day

Working in pairs, you will be making a selection of dishes that may include:

  • Harissa and honey aubergines, Levantine grains, za’atar yoghurt
  • Raspberry kefir overnight oats
  • Sprout ’kraut
  • Miso ginger coleslaw
  • Bone broth
  • Teriyaki mackerel, smashed cucumber salad

This is a brand new class for us and we are passionate about sharing this with you all.

The location for this class is the Miele Experience Centre, Abingdon:
