Happy Friday my loves! Whatcha up to this weekend?

Today is the day Nick and I FINALLY get to see the Avett Brothers in concert, so I am obviously very excited for tonight :)

Other than the concert, its Localtopia here in St Pete, so I will probably spend some of my weekend there and the rest either relaxing with the hubs and animals on the couch or working on the business. Oh and watching the Superbowl with friends, of course! I hope you have wonderful weekend plans as well :)

Today's recipe is another themed probiotic-rich recipe. Just like last week, I want to share some creative ways to include them in your diet more often.

Why probiotics? Probiotics are not only related to your digestive health, but also supports your immune system, supports a healthy weight and somuchmore.

I mentioned in last week's post, there are a few conditions where probiotics may not be beneficial. But for a healthy person and for most digestive issues, they are highly recommended. I personally prefer for my clients (and myself) to receive their probiotic intake from fermented foods. Just like a multivitamin or fish oil can never compete with just actually eating fruits and vegetables or oily fish, I wonder how helpful probiotics are when they are not in symbiosis with the foods that create them. Honestly, there's not much research on it and probiotics are highly individual. The amount one person can tolerate will look different than the other. My recommendation is try to find some form that you tolerate (like kimchi, kombucha, fermented kefir or yogurt, etc) and slowly increase your intake. As long as you tolerate probiotics well, I prefer them to be in the diet daily and at each meal if possible!
