Nutrition tip of the week: 30 plants per week – why and how?
If this is not something you’ve heard before – it is advised across the week to include 30 different plant varieties. Which for some sounds like a lot but if you aim for 5-6 each day, you’ll be well on your way. This includes foods such as fruit and veg, grains, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices – so it doesn’t sound as bad now?
The idea of including this many plants in the diet is to boost the diversity and health of your gut microbiome and thus positively contribute to your health.
So, for next week this could be a challenge to set yourself – eat 30 plants per week. This could start with your shopping, aim to include 3-4 plants in your shop that you don’t usually and if you don’t hit 30 aim to build on it week to week!
