The microbes in our gut are exceptionally clever, helping to control your blood sugar, produce vitamins, manage cholesterol and hormonal balance, prevent you from getting infections, control the calories that you absorb, communicate with your nervous system and brain, influence your bone strength and so much more. The food we eat can have a huge impact on the number and type of microbes living in your gut and how your gut physically works.

This is an accessible cookbook that has all the recipes you need for a healthy gut. All recipes have been carefully constructed to include the top three most important elements for a healthy digestive system; variety, fibre and ferments.

Variety: You have trillions of bacteria in your gut and they all thrive on different foods; so, variety really is key to making sure you keep them all happy. We need to be eating 30 different types of plant-based foods a week.
Fibre: We’re supposed to be getting around 30g per day, but 9 out of 10 of us are not reaching that goal. A diet high in fibre can slow the absorption of sugars, reduce the risk of certain diseases, including high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes and bowel cancer.
Ferments: Due to the bacteria and yeasts, fermented food is tasty and can have a positive effect on the gut.

This book offers easy How-Tos so you can add fermented food seamlessly into your daily diet – but don’t think this book is all “holier than thou” super salads and sauerkraut; we’re talking generous food that is familiar and most importantly “gut-ilicious” – from Fish and Chips to Jackfruit Tacos, Sourdough Pizzas and Shepherd’s Pie to beautiful salads and cheeky Kombucha Mocktails.

The comprehensive shopping lists of all the ingredients you’ll need to tips for simple swaps and information on how to pickle anything. Your fridge will be full of homemade ferments in no time.

Chapters include: Breakfasts, Easy Lunches, Simple Dinners, Drinks and Snacks and Ferments. 

The author

The Gut Stuff was born in 2017 by co-founders Lisa and Alana Macfarlane (The Mac Twins).  They made it their mission to bring the exciting information they were learning, to the masses (not just the 'wellbeing aware' middle classes) and have since made the global millennial thought leader in the space. They’ve gained their profile through The Mac Twins DJ’ing  and presenting, and whether performing all over the world for Diet Coke, Armani, MAC Cosmetics, on tour with the UK’s biggest music institution The Official Charts, their primetime radio slots both with Virgin and BBC Radio 1xtra, or opening festival stages across Europe, The Mac Twins’ unique talent is their ability to connect with any audience – large or small – and keep it real.
