So what is the number 1. way to improve your gut health? Easy. Eat more fermented foods! Yogurt and kefir is probably the first thing that comes to mind. And if you’re happy with eating your yoghurt then that’s great. Fermenting vegetables is a brilliant habit to get into. Especially if you’re trying to keep away from dairy so yoghurt isn’t a good option for you. But even if you’re happy with your yoghurt/kefir, adding fermented vegetables to your repertoire is only going to help your gut.
One of the most important things you should know about cultured veggies happens in the first 24 hours of fermentation. The faster you can drop the pH in your homemade fermented vegetables, the healthier and safer they will be.
