Real Pickles

My love for fermented & raw veggies has gotten a tad out of control….I have officially caused the Whole Foods in Boston to be sold out of the red cabbage last week & today I just cleared the shelves of the last gingered carrots! The brand, Real Pickles, sells numerous kinds of fermented products, but these two are clearly my fave.

I am assuming you have a lot of questions about these fermented loves of my life – so let me ramble off the numerous benefits of them:

  • Contains both active cultures  & enzymes – active cultures & enzymes support proper digestion, aid in nutrient absorption, contribute to healthy metabolic function & inhibit harmful microbes in the intestinal system
  • Lactic acid is created during fermentation – lactic acid supports the growth of essential intestinal flora, normalizes acid levels in the stomach, helps the body assimilate proteins and iron & stimulates cell metabolism.
  • Fermentation breaks down phytates – phytates block mineral absorption.  The more this is cleared up, the better your body is able to absorb nutrients. .

And most importantly – lets not forget the taste! I can eat the carrots or cabbage straight out of the jar they are so yummy! However, I typically toss one of them in my salad or much on it as a snack with nutritional yeast & hemp seeds (I am right now, as I am typing away)!
