Our gut microbes perform many different essential functions that help us to stay healthy. These include digestion, vitamin production, detoxification, control of gut barrier integrity, regulation of cholesterol metabolism, providing resistance to pathogens, immune regulation, neurotransmitter regulation, regulation of gene expression, and more!
In fact, at least 90% of all disease can be traced back to the health of the gut and our gut microbiomes.
Every human cell is impacted by the activities of our gut microbes. A healthy gut microbiome is essential for our health.
We Can Heal Our Guts!
Diet is the single biggest influence on gut microbiota composition—diet is directly responsible for more than 60% of the variation in bacterial species in the gut. Genetics, gender, age, lifestyle, hormones, drugs, supplements, and environmental exposures collectively are responsible for the remaining 40%.
The good news is that we can start improving our gut microbiomes today with dietary changes geared at fostering a vibrant and diverse gut microbial community!
In fact, dietary changes can alter the gut microbiome’s composition in a very short period of time, in a matter of a few days to a few weeks!
Dr. Sarah spent 6 years researching the gut microbiome, building a new diet from the ground up based on optimizing gut health, unveiling 20 keys to gut health, and discovering over 60 gut health superfoods!
But, what does a gut health diet like in practice? Dr. Sarah wrote The Gut Health Cookbook to be your launching point towards dietary tweaks to better support your gut microbiome!
The 180+ recipes included in this e-cookbook each center on at least one of 61 featured gut health superfood ingredients, adhere to the 20 keys for gut health, and most importantly, will show you just how easy and delicious eating for your microbiome can be!
This is not just a cookbook of vegetable side dishes and salads! There are breakfasts, breads, muffins, snacks, appetizers, soups, over 30 dessert recipes (yes, desserts that are good for the gut microbiome!) and over 65 of the recipes are main dishes or one-pot meals!
The recipes are organized by featured gut health superfood, each prefaced with a summary of that superfood’s benefits to overall health and the gut microbiome. Yes, there’s still lots of nerdy microbiome science even in this e-cookbook!
For each of the 61 gut health superfoods, there are 3 tasty recipes that highlight that ingredient and pair it with other superfoods.

In The Gut Health Guidebook, Dr. Sarah builds a new diet for general health, from the ground up, based on the gut microbiome, that merges everything the science currently tells us is healthful into one comprehensive approach.
The unprecedented deep dive into gut health, examines:
The features of a healthy gut microbiome
How a healthy gut microbiome benefits our overall health
How proteins, fats, and carbohydrates impact the gut microbiome
How vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals impact the gut microbiome
How sleep, circadian rhythms, fasting, stress, and activity impact the gut microbiome
Note, The Gut Health Guidebook and The Gut Health Cookbook are not Paleo or AIP e-books.
During Dr. Sarah’s 6 years of researching for The Gut Health e-books, she made a rule for herself: No preconceived notions on whether a food or lifestyle biohack is good or bad allowed.
Instead, Dr. Sarah took the opportunity to build a new optimal diet and lifestyle focused on supporting a healthy and diverse gut microbiome from the ground up.
While some of the gut microbiome superfoods featured in these e-books are not traditionally considered Paleo (like lentils, rice and goat dairy), all of the recipes in The Gut Health Cookbook are gluten-free, approximately 90% are strict Paleo and more than half are AIP compatible. And, for those of you who have all of Dr. Sarah’s e-books and in-print books, a whopping 110 of the recipes in The Gut Health Cookbook are completely new and not available anywhere else, while many of the others have been tweaked to be even better for gut health!
The Gut Health Cookbook also includes a bonus download with AIP recipe modifications.
