CHART FOR HEALTHY GUT

We take so much for granted, very often come to realise when it’s a little too late, damage is done, & deterioration has deeply set in, so now is the time to take charge for improved quality of life! If ever you ask anyone what they would love most, they will almost indefinitely mention health as number one top of the list. With health we can climb mountains, swim across oceans, help others, find love, and obtain wealth.

We consume food at least three times a day on average, why not make that fuel count and ‘nutrify’ each and every single organ and living cell, as we have one body, one life, lets make it count.

Consuming healthy well balanced meals from all food groups (fruit, veg, nuts, seeds, legumes, grains, herbs, spice, edible roots & flowers), as well as eating from rainbow colours (white, yellow, orange, red, green, red, blue, purple, black, brown), daily sunshine D,  exercise, and relaxation leads to good health.

In today’s world where toxins are rife, they linger in the air that we breathe, swim in our waters, and leach into our depleted poisoned soils, it’s imperative that we start to heal ourselves with whole vegan foods, in order to detoxify our bodies & our minds from the daily garbage, grunge, heavy toxic metals, pollutants, and the violence, and start cleaning up and taking good care of our ecosystems. Health starts on our plates, as does peace.

We often underestimate our gut. This gastrointestinal tract, an organ system starting at the mouth which takes in food, and digests it to absorb energy through nutrients, then expels remaining waste as feces. We want to keep our gut clean and healthy just like we would maintain clean pipes in our vehicle so that fluids & fuels flow through smoothly. There are certain foods that aid healthy gut bacteria more than others. The gut microbiome is crucial for health which can also control immune system, and there are suggestions that central nervous system as well as brain health can be affected. There are thousands of different bacteria in the intestines most which benefit our health however, having to many unhealthy microbes can lead to disease. This is where probiotics can potentially restore gut health.  Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli are our friends. 

Eat a diverse range of whole vegan foods – legumes, beans, fruit

Eat fermented foods – sauerkraut, vegan versions of kefir, natto, miso, kimchi, apple cider vinegar, dairy free yogurt, tempeh , beet kvass

Eat probiotic foods – Jerusalem artichokes, bananas, asparagus, oats, apples

Eat whole grains

Eat foods rich in polyphenols – green tea, chocolate, whole grains, olive oil, vegan red wine

Enjoy, life is too short not to!

Do share with us how you further enhance health gut, as we continue to advocate for healthy communities, we would love to hear from you!

Two fist size bean shaped organs either side of the rib cage on each side of spine, whose primary function it is to filter blood to produce urine composed of wastes and extra fluid. These intricate organs made up of millions of filtering units are worthy of respect and, so deserving of clean wholesome vegan food combinations to help them stay healthy. Keep hydrated but don’t overdo it. Exercise regularly.

We have all come to know someone with heart issues: hypertension, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and or inflammation caused by not so healthy eating choices. As most are caught up in everyday life, long hours at work, and seemingly lack the time to cook, lack nutritional knowledge & know how but, if we compare the pain, expense, danger, and inconvenience of taking 18 pills every day that break down immune systems even down further and leave us feeling lifeless, and affect & negatively impact other organs, surely, it’s worth to take time out with loved ones to learn to cook, to enjoy time in the kitchen, prepping healthy food for the week, and converting to whole vegan foods that nutrify organs and cells, which keep us healthy.  There are no grey shades in-between. Let’s face it, today’s diseases are on the rise, as are the toxins in meat, dairy & eggs.  We need to make a choice if we value sentients, health & ecosystems. Doing good bounces good right back. Peaceful actions are great for the heart. Anyway, below spoils us for choice once again for great heart health. Wishing you love.

The brain, the mecca and central hub hard drive to all machines, the central organ to the nervous system and linked to the spinal cord, making decisions and sending those to the rest of the body.  Whose function is motor, sensory, regulation, language, lateralisation, emotion, cognition. This muscle, an intricate world where nerves spark, cross & collide, through pockets of neurons, electrons, culminating ideas, saving memories, and ideas are stored. Where the five senses, and even the sixth meet to function well in unison with the rest of our bodies. We all have one, it is wise to put it to good use and nourish the grey matter. Below are some foods that nutrify the brain, keeping it healthy, youthful and alive. In addition, as with all muscles of the body, exercise plays an integral part in it’s health. Puzzles, word, number and memory games aid with brain health. The below food inspirations leave us spoilt for choice.
