Looking for tips to boost your health & well-being?
👏🏾 Stock your fridge with fermented foods for the whole family to enjoy! 👏🏾
Fermented foods are a RICH source of pro-biotics, live enzymes and bio-available nutrients that can give any meal a health boost!
Adding a little bit of fermented food into your daily meals can create long lasting shifts on the composition of your gut microbiome and act as a "health buffer" to prevent disease.
Fun fact! Studies have found that eating a diet high in fermented foods for just 10 weeks caused 19 inflammatory proteins to dramatically reduce in the body, as well as result in a significant increase in microbial diversity, plus the activation of 4 types of immune cells! 🤯
So if you're not currently consuming them... You are missing out. 😅
Fermenting food not only increases its nutrient density, but it also makes food more digestible!
So what are you waiting for?
It's time to get in touch with your roots and ancestral traditions and get some of those good gut bugs back into your diet!
1. Deliciously Spiced Sauerkraut 🥦 🥬
Support your detox pathways and digestion that little bit extra by serving sauerkraut as a condiment with meals or on its own. Sauerkraut is an incredibly versatile addition to all meals! Can be added to salads, sandwiches, wraps, burgers and soups - anything and everything!
2. Vitamin K2 Rich Coconut Kefir 🥥
Milk Kefir is one of THE most probiotic rich superfoods that you can eat! Not only that but kefir contains high levels of magnesium, folate, biotin, and vitamin K2! Vitamin K2 is an important nutrient that is often missing in the modern diet and is rich in fermented foods, with it being extremely cardio protective. Just another reason to add this to your diet!
3. "Aspergillus oryzae" Rich Organic Miso 🍣
Did you know that each type of fermented food contains different types of strains of bacteria? Miso in particular is rich in the probiotic, Aspergillus oryzae, which has been found to be particular beneficial to supporting digestion, synthesizing enzymes to help break down your food, as well as supporting immune function. Why not add a nourishing bowl of miso soup to your menu this weekend!
4. Glycine Rich Bone Broth 🍲
We couldn't talk about gut health without mentioning bone broth! Take a rest between your meals or at the end of the day with a cup of bone broth to nourish and support your digestive system. Bone broth is rich in the amino acid glycine, which helps reduce inflammation as well as build your intestinal gut lining. What's more, glycine has been found to have an anti-anxiety and calming effect, helping to promote a restful sleep. 😴
5. Goat & Sheeps Probiotic Rich Yogurt 🍧
Enjoy these thick and creamy nutrient dense yogurts that are great for breakfast, snacks or desserts! These have additional lactobacillus probiotics which are great for supporting digestion and helping the body fight off harmful organisms.
