HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What will 2024 bring for you?
What are your goals and hopes?
Is this the year you’re going to start trying for a baby?
Or, maybe you already have your due date and know that by the end of this year, your family will have grown in size?
Wherever you are on your baby-making journey, we’ve got you.
Here are some gut-healthy resolutions we’ll be sticking to at MothersBabies…
1. FOCUS ON PLANT DIVERSITY
We know that our gut microbiome loves a bit of all the different plants, so we’ll be aiming to hit our 30 different fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes every week, to help support the resilience and diversity of our own microbiome.
2. INCLUDE SOME FERMENTED FOODS DAILY
This one doesn’t always come easily as it’s not a typical part of the Western diet, but fermented foods are great for gut health. We will be adding kefir to our smoothies, having a side of kimchi with our scrambled eggs, and adding sauerkraut to our toasties.
3. PRIORITISE SLEEP & REST
Perhaps the trickiest of all for me personally (a busy mum of two), to fit in… I am really noticing the impact that sleep and rest has on my mood, energy levels, skin health, and diet choices…So many knock-on effects for gut health that I’m going to aim to prioritise this in 2024.
4. CUT BACK ON THE BOOZE
Alcohol is not only pretty devastating for your gut flora, it also effects your sleep, your energy levels and your fertility. Reducing my weekly intake will continue to be a focus in 2024.
