Gut feeling: Mindful menus for the microbiome

Friday, 07 July 2017


The ECU Nutrition Research Team lead by Professor Amanda Devine and Dr Claus Christophersen have recently translated their research showing benefits of eating resistant starch into a 14 day menu that was featured by Shalin on ABC TV Ask the Doctor, and have now created a cookbook.

Gut Feeling: Mindful Menus for the Microbiome will showcase recipes that:

  • Are quick and easy to prepare
  • Use simple, affordable wholesome ingredients
  • Are flavoured with herbs and spices
  • Use no added salt
  • Offer vegetarian options
  • Promote low energy days
  • Use a variety of foods
  • Provide options for left overs

This cookbook is a tool to build awareness of how important the microbiome is to human health and how we can achieve this each and every day.

While you wait for the full book to be finished, you can download a small taste of ‘Gut Feeling’ and learn how to feed your microbiome.
