sauerkraut! for good digestion!

Good digestion - I won't say it's my theme for this year but I just had a few tips that I got from my sister while we spent Christmas in Minnesota with her. They are on a big sauerkraut kick at the moment and we just joined in! I really love the idea, it's a staple on a macrobiotic plate, but somehow it's one that is usually forgotten, all the while it could be the most important!

A spoonful of pickled vegetables is an important factor in helping you have a healthy digestion. It helps to prepare your food as it goes through your system, I think of it as a bit like Drano - but it tastes better! Try to include it in each meal, and try to eat it first, even kids love it!

Be sure you are using a good pickled vegetable, no sugar (which is usually included in larger brands), good brands are Organic Real Pickles or even Bubbies Sauerkraut. Sauerkraut is fat free and low in calories. It rich in Vitamin C and contains other important nutrients including iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, thiamin, riboflavin, fiber, and niacin.

Happy Digesting!
