SAUERKRAUTThis food is simple to make, tasty to eat, and packed with trillions of good bacteria—a must for anyone who is serious about repairing their gut.
Sauerkraut is a fermented cabbage that has been popular throughout central Europe for hundreds of years. It combines one of the healthiest foods there is—cabbage—with one of the most beneficial and time-honored food preparation methods ever used: fermentation.
I kid you not: a daily dose of this cabbage treat will repair your gut quickly and many times better than the strongest probiotic. But before you rush out and grab a jar of Bubbie’s sauerkraut, make sure your sauerkraut is unpasteurized. Just like milk, when you pasteurize sauerkraut, you kill all the good bacteria.
