Eating plenty of anti-inflammatory foods balances the levels of good and bad bacteria in your gut, which can boost your immune system, regulate hormones, improve digestion and your absorption of vitamins and minerals, and help you lose weight. And eating foods that are healthy for your gut doesn’t have to be torture — or require that you spend countless hours in the kitchen. Grab your crockpot and get ready to whip up easy chicken recipes that are delicious, nutritious, and beneficial to the health of your gut.
