I’ve been really getting into making my own fermented foods! I actually try to eat something fermented/pickled with every meal, as it helps with digestion. The Japanese eat tons of fermented/pickled foods, and Japan has the lowest rate of obesity (%3) in the world (as well as the longest life expectancy (85))! Here are some benefits of fermented foods:

- Promotes and improves digestion

- Aids friendly bacteria in your gut

- Rich in enzymes

- Increases vitamin content

- Helps increase nutrient absorption

Try incorporating fermented foods in your diet!! Will be posting how to make your own fermented foods: like kimchi, kombucha, yogurt.
