3 Fermented Recipes to Try

For week 3 of our March Makeover, we want to focus on incorporating fermented foods into our diets!

March Makeover 2014

Fermented foods have been dietary staples in culinary cultures all over the world. They have healthy bacteria, which helps to ease digestion, enhance immunity and decrease inflammation in the body (all proponents of good skin). In addition, fermented foods provide enzymes that help to better absorb minerals, vitamins and nutrients. Keifer, kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, and miso are great sources of probiotics. Pack kimchi on a sandwich, miso-marinate eggplant or enjoy a big glass of kombucha by itself!
