This is my usual breakfast when doing a cleanse or a shed. No carbs, just tomato, spinach, eggs (I do like mine with yolk) and a side of sauerkraut. Put everything except eggs and sauerkraut into a small pan, just heating the spinach through, crack in the eggs, put under a grill and then add a few spoons of sauerkraut on the side. So easy, that took 6 minutes…or may be 6 and 30 seconds. 🙂 It’s a perfect little meal after a great morning of paddleboarding in the harbour.
I was telling someone the other day, now I have a constant supply of sauerkraut in my fridge and when I make myself a meal I first take out a jar of sauerkraut and decide from there what I will eat. Sauerkraut can be enjoyed with just about everything, so it’s not hard to incorporate on a daily basis. I eat sauerkraut twice a day on average. I don’t have to buy expensive probiotic tablets anymore. I am also really happy to learn that 60gm of home made sauerkraut contains more probiotic bacteria than a bottle of probiotic tablets.
Why do we need probiotics? There are lots of books on this, but in a nutshell we need good bacteria in our gut to break down the nasties and encourage healthy digestion. I noticed that since I eat sauerkraut daily, I am not feeling the bloat and my immunity is very strong in that I have maintained my health while others around me have been sick. Food for thought.
