Sauerkraut-Fermented Foods

SAUERKRAUT

This 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.
