Probiotics and gut health are surrounded by all sorts of excitement! It’s certainly become easier to identify sources of probiotics and include them in our diets through foods like kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, yogurt, and supplements. However, what hasn’t become all that easy is finding prebiotics in the same way. So, how do we get the best prebiotics into our guts too?
Eating healthy meals and snacks replenishes the body with glycogen, maintains our blood sugar levels and keeps us feeling great and plunging up the mountain. Timing nutrition is also a biggy. It takes time for your body to process and absorb nutrients. If you eat too big of a meal right before a workout, your body won’t have enough to absorb those nutrients yet, so you’re not getting its energy in time to fuel your workout. So, what are the right things to eat and when do we eat them?
Hiking is one of our favorite Rowdy ventures during the springtime months. We love exploring new trails and discover new (or new to us!) nature spots to stop for a snack, a few photos or to cool off in a stream.
We're excited to welcome Shanti Wolfe, RD as our Rowdy guest author this week! Shanti gives us a registered dietician's insight on how probiotics and prebiotics help us properly absorb the protein we need to keep our body’s happy and healthy.
