Q: Could you please let me know which foods should I be eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner in order to maintain healthy gut bacteria?


A: Foods that are rich in acidophilus promote a healthy intestinal flora.

These foods include miso soup (but only if cooked by placing the miso during the last part and warmed, as cooking or boiling will destroy the healthy bacteria), yogurt, tempeh, and kombucha, a fermented drink. You can also check certain types of health bars and smoothies that advertise "acidophilus-rich" on the labels.

Balancing pH level can also be helpful - apple cider vinegar or lemon juice in water can achieve this naturally, but of course, it is best to get your pH level tested by a medical physician to see where your levels are to determine the correct dosage of vinegar or lemon juice, or whether these additions to the diet are appropriate for your body.
