Your gut has influence over, well, pretty much all of your body. It’s something we covered with naturopath, clinical nutritionist and founder of The Gut Cø Pernille Jensen, who gave us all her gut health tips. In fact, it’s actually possible to eat your way to happiness by consuming certain fibrous foods. Avocadoes and potatoes are also good for boosting your gut health.

But sometimes, you don’t want to cook an entire meal just to get some gut goodness into your body. Sometimes, it’s easier to just throw down a quick snack, or a quick drink, and call it a day. That’s why, with the help of The Gut Cø, we’ve put together three easy wins that not only taste delicious but will also give your gut health a boost.
