Today’s super quick reminder where balance is concerned physically: have more probiotic foods!
Drinking alcohol, taking antibiotics, eating unrefined sugar and heavy starches and many more environmental factors and illnesses all deplete the good bacteria in our digestive system. A lack of probiotics can contribute to everything from candida, IBS, autoimmune problems, allergies, a weak immune system and even a lack of focus and a feeling of depression. After all- we need good bacteria in our bodies to properly digest and assimilate food, and to regulate the body’s inflammatory responses. I am a huge champion of probiotics. They have been life-saving to me.
That said, eating cups of yogurt all day is not always fun, so I thought I would sahre a more decadent way to get a ton of probiotics: a cheesecake smoothie! Just blend up: two cups of yogurt, a healthy handful of raw cashews, a bunch of organic strawberries and some honey. That’s it! Enjoy! xoxo Dana
