Improve Your Gut Health – Sauerkraut Recipe

Want to improve your gut health but don’t want to pay a lot of money for a good quality probiotic pill? Well friend, it’s time to up your intake of fermented foods. Komboucha, Keffir, Kimchi, and Sauerkraut are the main ones, in my opinion, sauerkraut is the easiest to make, least expensive and yummiest!

 

Improving your gut health can improve digestion as well as improve your immunity, and who doesn’t need a little boost at this time of year (hello daycare and school moms). My entire family just got the cold and I’m happy to say that my bout lasted for about 24 hours – when usually I would have been sniffly/coughing for at least a week!

 

I made my very first how-to video (hello amateur video :p ) , so you can check it out, OR find another more professional how-to video out there…either way, get making! And Eating! Your gut will thank you!

 

Oh, and the best thing? There are only 2 ingredients: cabbage and salt. You can also add any flavours if you like (chives, garlic, ginger, hot peppers, etc), but I suggest starting with the basic recipe, then experimenting with other flavours in later batches.

 

 

P.S. I used a Chinese Cabbage because that’s all they had at the store, and I wouldn’t use it again because the Kraut was a little soft. If you use a regular cabbage, it will be nice and crunchy!

 

Enjoy 😉

I feel so good every time I put it on and it makes my skin feel so soft, I’m also convinced it’s making my skin look better, but that could just be mental – either way, I feel better! This recipe was… Read more →

Isla will be turning two in less than a month, naturally she’s growing bored of her baby toys and ready to take her playing/learning to a new level. Lately I’ve been struggling to keep us both entertained all day long since she isn’t in daycare, and I’m home with her most days. Thankfully it’s been a gorgeous summer and we’ve… Read more →
