An excellent new book on Food, the Gut and Health.
“Digestive Health with Real Food” by French Canadian, Aglaee Jacob, MS, RD, is big, clear, full of info, and can be a good guide for your detective work on digestion, elimination (poop), and your health.
Agalee, like most of us who come forward to teach or write about natural health, has been through her own digestive struggles, and has put together a juicy resource book on eating, pooping, IBS, bacteria, fructose problems, probiotics and more. She offers guidelines on food challenges, supplements, choosing probiotics, and fermented foods.
Transit time? Leaky gut? Stress and the gut? SIBO? FODMAP’s? It’s all here, so you’ll have to read the book and/or listen to our Interview to get the details.
If you want info on the color and consistency of your stool, listen to us talk about green, gold, pale, floating, foamy and lots of other “poop” descriptors. Now how much fun can you have in a 45 minute show?
Oh, and there’s recipes too. Bone broth, gelatin, meat cupcakes, macaroons, apple pudding and other simple foods for healing tummies old and new. I asked Aglaee for her recommended gelatin source and she suggests Great Lakes brand. Nice to have an alternative to commercial stock that may not be good for us.
You can buy her book on Amazon or her website. And stay tuned – we’ll be offering a Giveaway of a copy soon!
