Did you know that 1 gram of naturally-fermented sauerkraut can easily contain 54 billion live bacteria? Compare that to a fairly standard probiotic supplement, which only contains 2-5 billion live bacteria per pill. I’m not knocking the supplements. After all, I take them daily to act as a sort of “cushion” for the days when I fail to get a fermented food into my diet. (You can see which probiotics I recommend here.)
But WOW! 54 billion live bacteria??? In less than a half a teaspoon?
If you’re serious about helping to re-populate your gut with healthy, probiotic bacteria, you can’t do better than introducing cultured, living foods into your diet. But if you’re like most of us, the idea makes you nervous. How can you make sure your ferment is safe? How can you ensure consistent, good-tasting results? If you don’t like sauerkraut, what other types of fermented foods can you enjoy?
Last year, I took an e-course that rocked my world. It was called Get Cultured! How To Ferment Anything. In it, I learned how to ferment condiments like ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise. I learned how to ferment sweet pickles, make yogurt & kefir. You name it; I learned how to safely turn it into a probiotic food. This week, I’m privileged to be giving away a free enrollment in the e-course to one of my lucky readers.
