Fermented Vegetables (Kraut, Pickles, Kim Chi) 

Fermented vegetables also known as lacto-fermented vegetables are a traditional food used by many cultures to preserve vegetables. Using a salt brine that inhibits the growth of bad bacteria (which causes foods to rot) and allowing the good bacteria such as lacto-bacilli (hence the name lacto-fermentation) naturally present in the vegetables to preserve them leaving you with a crunchy, sour, nutrient and probiotic packed superfood you can easily make at home. My whole family consume fermented vegetables everyday.

Water Kefir

Water Kefir is a fermented beverage using sweetened water or coconut water. It is full of probiotics and great for strengthening and restoring the gut especially after antibiotics. It's also very beneficial to consume on a regular basis when you are living in a developing country where our westernised gut microbiome may not be used to. I have recently introduced this to the family to alternate with our Kombucha to ensure we are getting a variety of probiotic strains and health benefits.
