Influential Gut Guru to Appear at Booths

Dr Megan Rossi to Give her Tips for Good Gut Health on Saturday 16th of November at Booths Windermere, Knutsford and Keswick Stores
Dr Megan Rossi

Dr Megan Rossi is a nutritionist, dietician, research fellow at King’s College London with a PHD in gut health and kidney disease and ten years of clinical practice.  In a crowded wellness book market, she’s a woman who knows her subject and she’s keen to debunk myths about fasting, superfood and vegan diets.

Dr Rossi will be on hand to sign copies of her book, Eat Yourself Healthy on the 16th of November at Booths stores in Knutsford, Windermere and Keswick stores.  She’ll also be launching her new Bio & Me range of Granolas, which contain 15 different types of fibre.

According to Dr Rossi, the secret to a healthier gut is not a restrictive diet, but an inclusive one with the ultimate goal of eating 30 different types of plant-based foods every week. 70% of your immune system lies in the nine meters of your digestive tract. And as Rossi argues, if you are eating 30 different types of fruit and veg each week, it limits the amount of processed food in your diet.

“The biggest myth about the get is that in order to look after it, you have an extreme or restrictive diet.  There’s all this stuff about how gluten’s bad for you or coffee or sugar, but there’re not. Gut health is all about eating an inclusive diet, about moderation and plant diversity,” says Rossi.

Rossi is keen to stress that improving your gut health doesn’t need to be daunting.

“If you’re buying a bag of salad buy the mixed bag, not the solo iceberg lettuce. Don’t just buy a red pepper, buy a yellow one too.  Instead of picking up a bag of beans, buy one with carrot or courgette too. Have a fry up by all means but have a tomato on the side or add spinach leaves.”

Dr Megan Rossi will be signing copies of her book and sharing samples of her new Bio & Me range of Granolas at Booths Windermere, Knutsford and Keswick stores on the 16th of November.
