In this interactive nutrition and cooking webinar discover how a healthier digestive system means a healthier you! Gut health is a hot topic; more and more research is linking gut health to disease and wellbeing – from digestive health and metabolism to immunity and even mood.

You’ll come away with a better understanding of what gut health is, including:

  • The key things you need to know about beneficial bacteria and how to look after your own.
  • The link between the gut and the brain including the latest ground breaking studies
  • The impact of stress on the gut
  • The difference between probiotics and prebiotics and how to include more of both in your diet.
  • How to use fermented food in your diet and why you should
  • The role of fibre in gut health and how to get more into your diet.

You’ll make a delicious gut-loving coleslaw and some overnight fermented oats using a fermented milk kefir (or yoghurt). You will also have the opportunities to have your own your digestive dilemmas answered. After the lesson, you will receive a range of gut friendly fermented recipes plus a handout covering everything in the webinar.
