This week (November 20th) on #AskADietitian Facebook Live series – talk about some SUPER cool new research on the power of your microbiome to potentially modulate your immune system during a cold or flu – and how you could potentially use nutrition to feel better faster! The research is still in it’s infancy but SUPER exciting. HINT: it has to do with one of my favourite topics: polyphenols!

I also talk about how to stick low FODMAP when you’re sick, and hidden sources of FODMAP’s in cold medicines and cough drops.

Lastly, I talk about my Instagram-Famous meal that had EVERYONE asking – how can I eat ALL the FODMAP’s in one sitting and not get a tummy ache! I talk about that in my #AskADietitian LIVE below!

Get over colds faster with the power of your microbiome!

(or at least it’s worth a try – it’s a super simple nutrition change that may have big impact!)
