Fermented Foods For The Win

Eastern northern european and Asian cultures have long used fermented food to heal balance beneficial bacteria in the body and promote optimal health.

Sauerkraut and Kimchi are both finely chopped picked cabbage.

Bacteria occurs naturally on the cabbage surface. When bacteria eat the naturally occurring sugars in the cabbage, fermentation develops.  Both kimchi and sauerkraut have the same type of lactobacillus probiotic bacteria.

Both are great for your gut (though they are quite smelly to keep in the fridge!). While natural is always best… if pickled cabbage is not your thing, you can always look to a probiotic to help balance your gut bacteria.
