THE PREBIOTICS CHALLENGE
You’ve heard how important probiotics are when it comes to your health–not only can they help with digestion, but they also play a role in dozens of other body functions.
PRObiotics are the good-for-you microorganisms that live in your gut. And probiotics need to eat just like the rest of us :-)
Basically, PREbiotics are a non-digestible fiber (you can find them in artichoke, jicama, and onions to name a few) that become a great source of fuel or food for the PRObiotics inside of your gastrointestinal system.
PRE and PRObiotics work together to create a positive change and help maintain balance within your body.
Here’s a list of foods high in PREbiotics:
● Raw Chicory Root (avoid if you’re pregnant)
● Raw Jerusalem Artichoke

Your challenge this week is to add more prebiotics to your diet. If you’re already frequently using some of them, maybe this week you can try adding a new one!
