Homemade Sauerkraut

We all know the amazing benefits of probiotics for the inner-eco system and a super easy way to culture friendly bacteria in the gut is through fermented foods. I LOVE culturing and fermenting my own foods. It's so easy, inexpensive and delicious. Here is a fun recipe to get you going on the home fermentation train ;)

Start with the veggies of your choice. I like to use things like cabbage, carrots, onion, ginger, apple, celery, ect.

Throw your mix of veggies in a glass jar. Use a spoon or spatula to pack it in tight and firm! Seal the lid nice and tight and let your mixture sit at room temperature for 7-10 to let it ferment. When you re-open it, your sauerkraut should be a bit bubbly or fizzy which is how you know you did it right! Add to salads, macro bowls or anything you want to add a little pro-biotic kick. Enjoy!
