Food for Thought Book Club: The Good Gut
Mar 2 2016 /6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In partnership with the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, the INWFN presents a monthly book club open to anyone interested in food and all things food-related.
March’s book is “The Good Gut” by Justin and Erica Sonnenburg.
Stanford University’s Justin and Erica Sonnenburg are pioneers in the most exciting and potentially transformative field in the entire realm of human health and wellness, the study of the relationship between our bodies and the trillions of organisms representing thousands of species to which our bodies play host, the microbes that we collectively call the microbiota.
The Good Gut offers a new plan for health that focuses on how to nourish your microbiota, including recipes and a menu plan. In this groundbreaking work, the Sonnenburgs show how we can keep our microbiota off the endangered species list and how we can strengthen the community that inhabits our gut and thereby improve our own health. The answer is unique for each of us, and it changes as you age.
Copies of the book can be reserved at the library or purchased at the Well Read Moose.
