If you aren't turning around and taking a peek after your daily bowel movement you are missing out on an opportunity to assess your health. Your stool can help identify if you are getting enough fiber, drinking enough water, eating enough fermented foods or if you are having some difficulty breaking down your food. Check out the Poop Pageant below from the Practical Paleo cookbook and take a peek at your own poop next time you head to the bathroom.
