Day 70: eating for gut health

I’ve been binge listening to DeliciousElla podcast during my morning runs. There was an episode about gut health that got me interested. It says we need to consume 30+ type of plant source of food per week to have a diverse healthy gut. I wonder how many do I consume. So I think I’ll challenge myself to eat as varied food as possible for a week and record them to see if I can hit 30.
Yesterday I took day off from work and had a slow morning. While cooking lunch, I made breakfast waffle for the family.
