Hey moms, working out and looking tone is a beautiful part of being healthy however, our gut is the true key to a healthy body.  Having a healthy gut is how we absorb and transport nutrients. It also helps get rid of waste, viruses, and bacteria our bodies don’t need. It’s true a healthy gut is what keeps us living a nice, long healthy life. Probiotics are one way to keep a healthy gut. We listed 5 foods below that have probiotics and some recipes.

*Probiotics live throughout our whole body and not just our stomachs.

1. Yogurt

Fermented yogurt like Activia is great for your gut. I like to add strawberries and blueberries into my yogurt. You can make a parfait as well to make it a healthy dessert. As a mom, you can prepare your yogurt or parfait in a mason jar and take on the go for breakfast or snack.

Probiotic Yogurt Parfait Recipe

The Courtesy of NWC

1 cup almond yogurt (plain, unsweetened)

1 NWC Pro-Biotics Plus® Stick Pack

1 cup blueberries

1/4 cup granola

1 tbsp honey

mint leaves for garnish


Measure 1 cup of yogurt into a bowl, and gently mix in one entire Pro-Biotics Plus® Stick Pack. (You just added a whopping 40 billion CFU’s to your parfait!) Once combined, add a spoonful of the yogurt mixture into your parfait glass, then sprinkle on some granola, add some blueberries, and drizzle honey over the top. Repeat this layer 3-4 times to make a gorgeous parfait! Top with the mint leaves for garnish and serve with a spoon.

2. Raw Cheese

I love cheese so much; I was happy to hear that some cheese has health benefits. Cheese made with raw milk has live enzymes that help your gut.  Cheese can’t be PASTEURIZED or cooked.  Look for Raw cheese on the label.

So, What Are Some Good Cheese?

  • Goat Cheese (feta)
  • Ricotta
  • Fresh Mozzarella
  • Swiss cheese
  • Monterey Jack
  • Parmesan (good for lactose intolerant moms)
  • Cheddar (good for lactose intolerant moms)
  • Asiago (good for lactose intolerant moms)

3. Dark Chocolate

So, don’t go crazy on a chocolate kick, but small amounts of dark chocolate in your diet a couple of times a month can help your gut. Dark chocolate has lower added sugar and provides a high level of polyphenols that helps your digestive tract and activates the good microbes that are found in your colon. You want to get mildly treated cocoa powder; it is the better chocolate.

4. Pickles

We put them on our hamburgers and our deli sandwiches; they are pickles. But not any pickles that you get off the shelf at your local grocery store. You want to get fermented pickles that aren’t made with vinegar.

Where to buy fermented pickles?

5. Olives

Olives are tasty in a salad, on pizza and potato salad. It can also be healthy for your gut. The green fermented olives are rich in lactobacillus, a bacteria that your gut loves. You can have it as a great snack:

 1 pack of crackers

Raw culture cheese (cheddar)

1 can of green fermented olives

  • I like to slice the cheese put it on a cracker and top it with an olive. You can also add fermented peppers if you like.

Signs that you need probiotics

Stomach pain
When your digestive tract isn’t properly processing your food

Are probiotics good for kids

Yes, most probiotics can help your little one’s tummy as well. I recommend only taking a probiotic supplement for kids like Culturelle kids. Also, check with your pediatrician just in case your child might have other illnesses or a lower immune system.
