I mentioned that this prebiotic recipe is gut nourishing, let me explain.
Your body has what we call a microbiome. Your microbiome is an entire world of microorganisms in your body that when balanced, work for you. For instance, your microbiome has what we call probiotics, good bacteria, that provide your body with tons of benefits, one of which is immune system support as they act as your first line of defense against pathogens (bad bacteria that makes us sick).
Prebiotics (not to be confused with probiotics (your good bacteria)), act as food for your probiotics. They nourish the good guys in your gut and help them stay balanced and working for you.
This recipe features a ton of prebiotic gut nourishing ingredients. Specifically, the chia seeds, apple, and ginger are all prebiotic powerhouses and are all found in this recipe. It’s important that you use raw ginger root in order to get its maximum prebiotic activity.
But prebiotic activity aside, this Prebiotic Apple Ginger Seed Pudding, is not only gut nourishing, but it’s delicious. Definitely worth a try even if you aren’t concerned about your microbiome.
Please note, chia seeds are PACKED full of fiber. While fiber is great for you, if you aren’t used to fiber dense meals, make sure you start slow when eating chia seeds. And remember, when you increase your fiber intake make sure you increase your water intake to prevent constipation!
