Raise your hand if you don’t want a healthier gut? We didn’t think so. A healthy microbiome is tied to improved immunity, metabolism, mood, and longevity. And we all want those things. But, what’s the best way to improve your gut health? Though eating well and taking probiotics are important, it turns out there are some changes to your environment and lifestyle that can have an impact, too.
We love #meatlessmonday and we also love #toasttuesday, so we decided to have a mashup this week. It’s especially great because here’s a dinner you can make in about 2 minutes flat that’s simple, delicious, healthy and fun, and keeps your kitchen cool. Did we mention it’s also totally plant based?
It’s a given that on weeknights, we want a fast, easy dinner that calls for a few simple ingredients, is easy to throw together and is healthy and delicious. But add to that a restaurant-worthy meal featuring iron- and vitamin B12-rich scallops?
We love grass-fed burgers and grilled chicken as much as anyone, but when it comes to cookouts, we’re all about the sides. Salads, grilled vegetables, slaw—piling our plates with colorful, fresh, delicious sides fills us up and keeps us energized for that swim/Frisbee game/playing with kids/insert other fun summer activity here. Here are some awesome healthy sides you can whip up in no time that you and your fellow BBQ-ers will love.
