Ep. 145: Desiree Nielsen - Good for Your Gut

Update: 2022-05-26


Raise your hand if you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, acid reflux, or other GI issues. Sadly, it seems like it’s just become part of our daily eating routine. Eat crappy (no pun intended) food, feel terrible, take a pill, get some relief, and do it all over again.

You can start to break that painful cycle when you begin consuming more nourishing plant foods with, you guessed it – FIBER. 

In her latest book, Good for Your Gut, registered dietitian, Desiree Nielsen, shares how to fuel gut health with anti-inflammatory plant-based foods and lifestyle strategies— from movement to managing stress—for a truly PLANTSTRONG approach to health and wellness.

From a nutrition perspective, Desiree explains the gut health and mind/body connection and shares some of her favorite (and creative) recipes to help protect, soothe, and heal your gut health.

Desiree even shares her “Big Three” vital foods to include every day for a healthy gut. 

It’s becoming obvious just how important overall gut health is for everyone, even if you don’t suffer from GI issues. A well-functioning gut means a healthy body, a healthy mind, and an iron-clad immune system.
