Stress relief is just a healthy meal away. Here are some stress-relieving foods and easy, tasty meals to make that put them in the spotlight.
The most important thing I want you to know about kefir is that this fermented milk drink is wildly versatile. Yes, there’s way more you can do than simply sip it or pour it over your cereal. It’s a good idea to stick with the plain, unsweetened stuff since flavored versions are often loaded with added sugar. Here are 8 easy, sweet and savory ways to eat more probiotic-rich kefir.
In an effort to work more probiotics into your day, Greek yogurt has become your breakfast staple. Some days you partner it with fruit and a few spoonfuls of granola, others you blend it into your smoothie for a boost of probiotics and protein.

After writing a cookbook about all the ways to incorporate probiotic foods into your diet, I realized so many probiotic foods are a natural fit first thing in the morning.
By now, you’re probably familiar with probiotics. You can find these gut-supporting strains of bacteria and yeast in everyday foods, or you can get them through supplement. However you take them, probiotics have been linked to better digestive health, among other things. But did you know that there are different kinds of probiotics? Here, we take a look at the three main types of probiotics and the benefits and challenges of each.
Your gut is a delicate and incredibly complex thing that requires lots of TLC. When you’re busy with work, friends, family, and other obligations, it can become tough to give your microbiome the attention it needs. I mean, just brushing your teeth seems like a major chore some nights!
The Internet is awash with information on probiotics — which strains are best, what they do for your body, etc. — so you know why you should take a probiotic supplement. But once you add probiotics to your wellness regimen, how do you know if they’re actually working?
Tens of trillions of tiny organisms reside in your digestive tract, calling the warm and nourishing environment of your microbiome “home.” They affect everything from your digestion to your sleep to your skin and your mood. In essence, by taking good care of your gut microbiome, you take good care of the rest of your body.
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.

Rich foods, late nights, family anxieties—ah, the holidays. Though the parties and travel can be fun, let’s face it, this season can be rough on your belly.
You feed your children the healthiest food you can (hey, they tried broccoli once, right?), and give them a multivitamin to fill in the rest. Now take it to the next level with a chewable probiotic specially designed to boost your kiddos’ gut health.
Get your greens. Eat the rainbow. Take probiotics. Incorporate sea vegetables. Try some adaptogens. There are so many things we’re supposed to be incorporating into our diets every day, it sometimes feels impossible to keep up.
If you pay attention to trends in wellness, then “detox” is a word you’ve probably heard a lot. It can mean everything from simply taking a break from sugar after the holidays to a full-on juice cleanse or fast—but no matter the method, the desired result is the same.
