Spring is upon us. I can feel it in my bones as the sun starts to poke through the dark clouds. It makes me feel like a mad man that wants to clean everything. If you didn’t see the first part of this two part series you can catch it here.
My heart gets a flutter and the thought of vacuuming, dusting and throwing things away gets me pumped. However, I often neglect to do the same to my body. So, I want to do a little spring cleaning this year with something much more important than my car, or house, my body!
With that said, I thought I’d give you a spring cleaning guide line for your gut. We all need to continuously populate and cleanse our gut. There are things we can do to get rid of the bad bacteria while giving our body the probiotics it needs to thrive.
Introducing Something New
After you’ve thrown out some stuff, swept and dusted it’s always nice to add something new. For me it’s often times a car air freshener and a new trinket to hang from my rear view mirror. In the house it’s always great to get a new tablecloth or small piece of furniture. It makes all the hard work worth while.
So, with your gut you should consider taking a high quality probiotic supplement. You want to focus to increase good gut bacteria. Although, I must make a disclaimer here. Simply taking probiotics for a time is never enough. You need to be constantly consuming cultured foods.
There are many foods that you could be ingesting including Kefir, yogurt, cheese, kombucha, lacto-fermented vegetables and/or Saurkraut. However, if you really want to go nuts you can try what I’m taking this spring! We’re ingesting Just Thrive Probiotic Supplement!
I also highly recommend adding some Super Foods. What are superfoods? Well, it’s a term coined by the one and only David Wolfe. The man essentially brought the foods to us in our local health food stores.
Raw Chocolate or Cacao is one of his main crusades. Raw Chocolate is an amazing superfood that acts as a prebiotic for your gut flora. It is the most complex food that exists on the face of the earth.
Sadly, many of us have only had it in a cooked down, melted form that isn’t all that great for you. Can you imagine if you had never had an almond? That’s kind of what it’s like with Cacao.
Last But Not Least
Finally, if you want to get in the groove you need to change up your diet and eating patterns. That’s why we’ve created our One Week Boot Camp to Gut Health. You can sign up below and get started on reclaiming and spring cleaning your way to a healthier you!!
