    What Is The Microbiome?

    Our gastrointestinal (GI) tract is an ecosystem – a collection of microorganisms that differ in number, type, and function throughout it. There are approximately 10 times as many microorganisms in it (approximately 100 trillion) as there are cells in the body. While most of the microbes are bacteria, the gut can also harbor yeasts, single-cell eukaryotes, viruses, fungi, archaea, and small parasitic worms. The majority is found within the large bowel where they contribute to digesting food, fermentation of undigested food components, especially carbohydrates/fiber, absorbing and synthesizing nutrients like phytonutrients, and to fecal bulk. Some of the most commonly found or recognized genera of gut bacteria in adults are Bifidobacterium,…

    Hazelnut Spread

    Who does not enjoy a nutty-chocolaty spread? The only person I can recall rejecting my offer of such a spread is my grandmother because she does not like chocolate in any form. I know, she is a rare specimen! For everyone else who loves to enjoy eating pancakes, slices of bread or cookies with something sweet and cocoa(ish) on top, this spread is a great alternative. It is easy to make and the list of ingredients includes foods that we usually have in our pantry. INGREDIENTS 150 g hazelnuts 2 tbsp. honey 2 tbsp. vegetable oil, such as rapeseed or walnut oil. 1/4 tsp. sea or Himalayan salt 170 g…
