Switch to Mixed Salad Leaves

Your gut microbiome is a vast community of trillions of bacteria and fungi that inhabit every nook and cranny of your gastrointestinal tract, and have a major influence on your metabolism, body weight, propensity to illness, immune system, appetite and mood.


Each of these bacteria require different combinations of the chemical compounds found within our food, hence we need a diverse dietary intake to keep the bacteria nourished and alive.


An easy way to add diversity to your diet is to use mixed salad leaves for salads instead of a single type of leaves. Make your own salad leave mix or utilise the pre-mixed versions available at your local supermarket.
