    I am so happy that okra is a superfood that is also prebiotic! That is my food here in Africa that my Gabonese grandma used to serve us! Thank you Dr.!

  • Karunamayi Holistic Inc. says:

    Didn’t know that about okra. Was thinking of cooking it this week. It is one of my favorite vegetable. It’s great to know it has prebiotic fiber. I never get frozen okra. Always buy it from Asian stores.

    I started eating the Left in free way. So happy to have discover this method. I have lost 9 lb and my joints feel much better. My question is can fermentation make oat meal, quinoa, and green tomatoes ok to eat? I’m hopeful that fermented oatmeal can be added into the winter breakfast menu. Thanks

  • toto' le moko' says:

    Hello, I have a doubt about natto (Japanese fermented soy beans). I like it as source of vitamin K2, and because of its taste. The last being highly disputed. Does the fermentation reduce the lectins in this food? Thank you from Ireland😀

  • Josephine D'Agostino says:

    I used to eat jicama daily, but for the past half year it has had a strong chemical taste so I stopped eating it. Has anyone else noticed this?

  • Linda C says:

    I love making my own coleslaw with red and white cabbage and leeks all shredded, also with my home made mayonnaise made with pure olive oil I’d eat it every second day with roasted sweet potato chips seasoned with paprika chilli powder turmeric powder and cracked black pepper and pink salt then pop into the oven with a bit of grass fed butter .. tasty 😋

  • Minka Demko says:

    Super! I love all these foods, but rarely buy them. I hope to see more YouTubers demonstrating the preparation for these.

  • jc ca says:

    Wow jicama and okra are on the list and they’re cheap and abundant here in the Philippines ☺️

  • Claire Agosto says:

    The only thing I can easily get is okra. Being in a tropical country, okra is very abundant and I can get it fresh (we also have em at our backyard)! I love it and eat it regularly sometimes with low-carb kimchi and sauerkraut!

  • Sravani Vootukuri says:

    Hi Dr. Gundry, thank you for all the knowledge and information you share to help the people around the world.
    My question is, does tamarind help in breaking lectins in the vegetables when added to the curry as a juice?
    When we soak the lentils without skin for 8 hours do we need to throwaway the water we have soaked in or use the same water?
    Same with rice do we need to use the soaked water or use fresh water?

    • Gundry MD says:

  • Monika Mona says:

    I’d love to hear more on the subject including a more extensive list of foods for the gut. Where can I find more about it? leeks and linseed are common in my country, but other 3 are rather “exotic”. What about beans lentils and chickpeas? Greens like spinach and kale? Sauerkraut, red borsch from fermented beets and other fermented foods? What about cabbage, red cabbage, brussel sprouts which are available fresh in winter?

  • Anonymous says:

    Thank you so very much for sharing your research with us! I follow you religiously. May I ask about eye health and oxidation creating cataracts? Can eye health issues be reversed? Thank you again so very much! I so appreciate you!

      @Gundry MD Sweet! I’m totally subbed! Thank you!

  • Carlos Alejandro Rodriguez says:

    I’m glad you mentioned that flax seeds should be bought whole. Not many people mention that

  • Mathematical Muscleman says:

    This fellow gives some good basic general scientific information pertaining to food and nutrition. Prebiotics and probiotics are most important for any training bodybuilder at competition levels.

  • Patty Berryman says:

    Thank you Dr. Gundry for your amazing work.

  • Helen Taylor says:

    Thank you Dr. Grundy for all your healthy education. You have changed my life. I just started your supplements and changed my daily routine of eating and I feel great! You are amazing and I am so happy I found you!

  • AllHim Withme says:

    Fresh artichokes are a cinch to prepare at home. Cut all but about an inch of the stem off. Cut off the first third of the choke. Steam to tender (fork goes with very little resistance into the base of the choke (top of the stem).  

    Eat step one: Pull out the leaves (most will have the tops cut off), dip bottom in butter and slide meaty part into your mouth with your teeth.

    Eat step two: After all the leaves are gone, take a spoon with a square edge (like a measuring spoon, not a spoon you’d use for eating which has the edge rounded) and scrape the hairy part off the concave top of the “meat” of the choke. Eat the solid portion that was under the hairs down to the stem (the stem doesn’t taste very good in my opinion, but you can eat that, too).

  • jjs490 says:

    Flaxseed is very healthy for you but I was adding to my oatmeal… and I wasn’t too fond of it.. I couldn’t take the consistency. But the other four I will give it a try.
