The health of our body is deeply influenced by the bacteria that call our body home. In fact, our bacteria outnumber our cells by a factor of ten to one! Good bacteria is super powerful stuff and directly impacts our gut health.
Healthy digestion is truly the foundation of great health and one of the easiest and quickest ways to boost the bacteria in your gut (and thereby improve gut health) is to eat fermented foods.
In this video you will learn the health benefits of fermented foods which range from improved digestion to strengthened immunity and even healthy body fat composition.
Here is the run down of the fermented superfoods I share in my video:
Which literally means, "sour cabbage". It can take anywhere from two to seven days to make. Here's a wonderful recipe for Crunch-tastic Sauerkraut. Find out my fave ways to use sauerkraut in the video!
Sauerkrauts spicy cousin, a total Korean superfood! Cabbage is fermented along with spicy ingredients such as cayenne and ginger. You can also ferment it with other veggies like carrots. My fave way to eat kimchi is with scrambled eggs.
I have a special announcement coming to the blog this Saturday and you'll find out why this has been my drink of choice for the last several months. It is a fermented tea beverage. It's fizzy and yummy! I love the overnight muesli recipe with kefir - - a super duper digestive friendly brekkie.
This is my go-to plant-based protein powder. I love that it's fermented because that means its pre-digested and easier to digest. It's sourced from 7 high protein vegan ingredients like organic spirulina, organic mung bean, organic yellow pea kernel, organic pumpkin, organic flaxseed, organic hemp and organic brown rice.
While I am not strictly vegan, I love that they use plant-based sources like the above as opposed to whey which is a dairy derivated and can lead to other complications.
This superfood is made from made from fermented soybeans. It is a complete source of protein. This is the best and the recommended way to consume soy products is when they are in their fermented state because they are easily digested. Have you tried my cousin's Tempeh Chili yet?

Last but certainly not least is miso, a fermented paste of soybeans and incredibly delicious! My favourite way to enjoy miso is in a salad dressing.
I really hope you enjoyed my video!
Have a joyous day,
