Did you know, one of the best ways to boost your health is through eating fermented foods!
I had the privilege of eating fermented side dishes all my life as I come from a Polish family that still makes their own sauerkraut, pickles, etc. But I was completely oblivious to its advantages and took them for granted. That is, until I moved in with my husband and we had kids… It seemed we were always sick in all its pleasantness.
Once I had taken a nutrition class, reintroduced home cooked meals, and (forcefully 📷;p ) introduced fermented foods, we stopped being as sick. Bye Bye constant colds! Bye Bye gastro!!!
Here’s why fermented foods are so important. • rich in probiotic bacteria, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acid • improve your gut microbiome, digestive system and enhance your immune system • get your colon back into balance • help the digestion and absorption of the foods you're eating
Here’s a couple of examples of fermented foods and drinks you can add to your meals: • Sauerkraut • Kimchi • Kefir • Kombucha • Miso • Tempeh • Yogurt
Best part of all, you don’t have to eat or drink huge amounts of fermented foods to reap the benefits! Try a little side dish a couple of times a week and you’ll see for yourself the benefits!
