Moving Forward — Gut Health, the Microbiome and Vlogging

Posted by:

When Quantum Vegan became GreenGut Wellness, I knew I wanted to keep on promoting the benefits of a plant-based diet to my clients and readers like you. I also knew it was time to take things in a new direction — to focus more on digestive health and the role of the gut microbiome in overall well-being.

With that in mind, I’ve been thinking a lot about where to take this blog. I love sharing recipes and information on seasonal veggies, bringing you guest articles, sharing books or products and generally having a good time. But with all that’s going on in my life right now with GreenGut Wellness and personal obligations, my approach to the blog is in need of a makeover.

I’m not going to stop posting, but I am going to establish a schedule that’s a little easier for me to keep up. I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed trying to stay on top of social media, work with clients, be a Toastmaster and maintain a healthy personal and spiritual life. Right now, I can’t say what this posting schedule will be, but if you subscribe, you’ll see new posts whenever they go live. Join my email list for occasional content updates and newsletters, too! (The newsletter will be going quarterly starting next month, arriving in your inbox in January, April, July and October.)

Right now, these are my thoughts on the types of posts I’d like to share in the future:

  • Collections of the latest microbiome news
  • Reviews and summaries of interesting studies on and books about gut health
  • Articles on how plant-based diets influence the microbiome
  • Dietary advice and “how to” articles to show you how to take care of your gut
  • Occasional recipes targeted for specific areas of digestive health

I would also love to start vlogging now and then. One thing I feel has been lacking in this blog from the start is a sense of personality. I’d like to lighten up the formal, technical tone a bit by showing you who I really am — because I like to be fun, straightforward and silly. I also think it would be a more entertaining way to share plant-based diet tips and tidbits from my own experiments in the kitchen.

But I don’t just want to post what feel like posting — I want to hear from you! What do you want to see on the GreenGut Wellness blog? What would help you get healthier, decode confusing dietary advice and achieve your lifestyle goals? That’s the kind of content I want to bring you. Leave a comment, or fill out this brief survey to help me make this blog the best it can be.

Thanks for staying with me throughout this journey! I’m excited to see what the rest of 2017 will bring for GreenGut and the future of the microbiome. I’m betting we’ll see even more about how it relates to plant-based health!
