Food for a Happy Gut

Food for a Happy Gut

‘I love working with Naomi. She is a force of nature and her brilliant books have the power to change lives.’ Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

Bestselling author of River Cottage Gluten Free, Naomi Devlin’s second book, Food for a Happy Gut, is full of recipes that will calm your digestion, soothe your gut and delight your tastebuds. Giulia Enders’ Gut, Michael Mosley’s The Clever Guts Diet and the work of Tim Spector among others has helped us realise how vital gut health is to our body, brain and mental health. But a gut-friendly diet need not mean the elimination of favourite foods or hard-to-follow diets. Nutritionist and River Cottage teacher, Naomi Devlin will show you how to keep your gut happy.

Move over clean food, this book will take you back to local produce, good home cooking and a wonderfully diverse range of ingredients. Naomi will help you turn your gut into a hub of microbial diversity with lots of plant food, a wide range of meats and fats, plenty of raw cheese, slow-cooking, fermented foods and of course prebiotic and probiotic foods.

First calm your gut. If your gut is sensitive, the first section is full of low FODMAP ingredients, seafood, broths and probiotics to soothe your digestion. Then nourish your gut with beneficial foods full of fibre, pre- and probiotics. And finally there are herbs, pickles and teas full of healing properties to stimulate and regulate digestion when you need a little extra help.

Neither strict plan or dogma, Naomi’s recipes are based on plain good sense and proper science. Food for a Happy Gut is full of delicious, healthy recipes and advice and will feed both your tastebuds and your microbes, leaving you content both inside and out.
