Hi, I’m Rebecca
I’ve been reading up on research about prebiotics, probiotics & the microbiome since 2010, when my Dad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and I was diagnosed with an auto-inflammatory illness & an auto-immune condition.
Here at Food For Flora, I want to share everything I’ve learnt on my search for better health.
Boosting my diet with prebiotic & probiotic foods & supplements, as my doctor suggested, has been an easy & delicious way to boost my immune system & wellbeing.
Food For Flora recipes, food and snacks are packed full of fresh, feel good ingredients, proven to boost your microbiome:-
– Prebiotics (foods that help friendly gut bacteria thrive)
– Probiotics (helpful bacteria)
Designed to feed your family & friends fast, Food For Flora prebiotic & probiotic recipes are easy to make, good value and use readily available supermarket ingredients.
Who’s flora? It’s another word used to describe the microbiome – the billions of bacteria in the gut.
The Science Bit:-
The information I share on this site distills the research I’ve read on the microbiome, prebiotics & probiotics.
You’ll find links to the relevant research studies on each page.
I’m not a scientist / dietician / nutritionist. I’m a food lover & home cook, putting microbiome research findings into action in my kitchen.
