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.
