Wild Mediterranean: The Age-old, Science-new Plan For a Healthy Gut, With Food You Can Trust by Stella Metsovas

A practical resource for restoring the microbial balance in our guts and rebooting overall health, featuring a simple 6-day, 2-phase detox cleanse and over 50 delicious Paleo-meets-Mediterranean recipes.
 
The key to great digestive health lies in rewilding the gut and keeping the diverse microbes that inhabit it happy and thriving. In Wild Mediterranean Stella Metsovas breaks down the complex science behind digestive health and shares a deceptively simple and down-to-earth plan for ending the digestive issues that can have far-reaching effects on our everyday lives. Using foods you already know, trust, and love—delicious Mediterranean cuisine—it's easy to reintroduce essential microbes to your system and cultivate a healthy microbiome to banish bloating, discomfort, and irregularity forever. At the heart of Wild Mediterranean are Stella’s unique village-to-table recipes, all based on the historically prebiotic-rich cuisines favored by the world's healthiest populations and her own family heritage. Packed with pre-tox and detox protocols for preparing the gut to heal, key lifestyle practices to support overall wellness, and the scientific evidence to back it all up, Wild Mediterranean is a practical resource for restoring the microbial balance in your gut and realizing your best digestive health.
