Week 2 – Add probiotics to your diet
The microbiome is the hottest topic in the wellness world right now. And for good reason—the bacteria in your gut affects everything, from your immune system to digestion, and even mood. This is why registered dietitian and Once Upon a Pumpkin founder Maggie Michalczyk, RDN, recommends eating lots of probiotics, as they help keep the microbiome strong.
“Pop a probiotic supplement or add more probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, or miso to your diet,” she says, noting that it’s a good ritual to adopt even if you don’t have digestive problems. “In my opinion, if an overall better mood is a byproduct of increased probiotics, that’s reason enough to keep this wellness habit up!”
