Your 1-Day Raw Probiotic Meal Plan

probiotic meal plan

Eating probiotics (live bacteria in raw fermented foods) can rev up the "good" bacteria in your body, which research has shown may help with weight loss, enhance the immune system, help lower cholesterol, and even protect against certain cancers. In this meal plan we feature six probiotic foods—kefir, kombucha, miso, sauerkraut, tempeh and yogurt—that were intentionally kept raw (i.e. not cooked) to keep the beneficial bacteria alive and active. Whether you're trying to lose weight, boost your immunity, or simply follow a healthy diet, this 1,500 calorie meal plan will suit your needs.
