Dr Jockers Comments:

Bread is one of our greatest comfort foods but also one of the most inflammatory foods we can consume.  This is because most of the bread on the market contain gluten and are very high carbohydrate.  This recipe is loaded with healthy fats, clean proteins and great prebiotic fibers.

Consuming these will help your gut favor the kind of microbiota that improve overall health.  Grass-fed butter is rich in butyrate and the fiberous carbs in the plantains are great fuel for the healthy microbial species that produce butyrate in our gut.

Butyrate is the preferred fuel source for our large intestinal cells. This is especially important because it helps prevent and heal leaky gut syndrome. Intestinal permeability is considered by many the leading source of inflammation in the body. This is most likely the rationale by how butyrate helps reduce auto-immunity and prevent cancer cell development.

Many scientists are suggesting that inflammatory bowel disorders may be caused or aggravated by a deficiency of butyrate.  Butyrate also is a great energy source for our skeletal muscle and our heart and has anti-inflammatory effects on the entire body.

  1. I’ve never seen plantain in grocery stores other than plantain chips. Where does one find plantain, so I can make this?
