Gut-Healthy Cheese Board

Gut-Healthy Cheese Board

For anyone looking to boost the health of their gut, it’s best to limit dairy for at least 21 days, sadly that includes cheese, especially processed cheeses. However, in honor of National Cheese Day, I put together a better-for-your-gut cheese board that contains probiotics and fiber. Typically, probiotics are in cheeses that have been aged but not heated afterward. This includes both soft and hard cheeses, including Swiss, provolone, Gouda, cheddar, Edam, Gruyere, and cottage cheese.

Pick 3 cheeses:

  1. Swiss
  2. Provolone
  3. Gouda
  4. Cheddar
  5. Edam
  6. Gruyere

Add some crunch:

  • Grain-Free Crackers
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Cucumbers


A little savory:

  • Olives
  • Refrigerated Pickles

Cheesy Tip: Hard cheeses, such as Swiss, tend to be easier to digest
