Moroccan stew with lashings of coriander and sauerkraut.

Sauerkraut is a type of fermented cabbage with major health benefits.

It's thought to have originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. Back then, fermentation was one of the methods used to keep foods from spoiling quickly.

Sauerkraut survived the test of time to become a popular side dish and condiment in many cultures. It's especially appreciated in Germany, where its name comes from.

Due to the fermentation it undergoes, sauerkraut offers nutrition and health benefits far beyond those of fresh cabbage.

Did you know Sauerkraut is incredibly nutritious and healthy. It provides probiotics and vitamin K2, both known for their health benefits, as well as many other nutrients. Eating sauerkraut may help strengthen your immune system, improve your digestion and reduce your risk of certain diseases

Sauerkraut fermentation creates conditions that promote the growth of beneficial probiotics, which are also found in products like yogurt and water kefir.

Probiotics are bacteria that provide powerful health benefits. They also help make foods more digestible, which increases your gut's ability to absorb the vitamins and minerals they contain. This is what makes sauerkraut more nutritious than raw cabbage or coleslaw.

Your gut is said to contain over 100 trillion microorganisms or "gut flora," which is more than 10 times the total number of cells in your body.

Sauerkraut contains probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that act as the first line of defense against toxins and harmful bacteria. They can also improve your digestion and overall health.

Probiotics have been found to help improve memory and lower symptoms of anxiety, depression, autism and even obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Research also shows that probiotics help reduce gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and other digestive issues.

fermented, probiotic-rich foods such as sauerkraut contribute to the creation of a healthy gut flora, which research shows may help reduce stress and maintain brain health.

💚💚💚Plastic free swaps💚💚💚
Going ‘plastic free’ is scary and intimidating. When you stop and look around it’s like “holy cow, how do I start and where do I start??!!” Also “can I do this??” Plastic was invented for convenience. And boy do we need some convenience in our busy life.
But actually small changes are easier to stick to and small changes make a big impact when we all get involved.
My first swap tip for 2020 is tea. So easy to by tea bags (often made out of plastic) in packages (often made out of plastic).
Who doesn’t love a nice cup of tea? And what a better way that to have a nice proper cup of tea. There are many different tea strainers out there and after you have finished you can pop the leaves in the garden. The plants love it as much as you. I will load my strainer you and use it several times through out the day.
This time of year getting your 2 letters of water is hard enough. But not if you count in some big mugs of flavoured teas.
all of the teas at ELY are organic, and have absolutely no artificial flavours like the highly suspicious ‘Natural flavours’ ingredient. What is natural flavours? And why is it called natural flavours? Why does my tea need added extra natural flavours? We don’t add anything but fresh, dried ingredients into the teas we sell. Come and have a look and start your simple and easy plastic free swaps. #youcandoit #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #saveourseas #plasticfreeuk #plasticfreeshopping #looseleaftea #lovetea #teadrinker #treatyourself #organic #healthybody
