Eliminate sugar cravings with this food: KRAUT

fermented vegetables

FERMENTED VEGETABLES are the most perfect post-holiday food to help restore the gut and to stave off sugar cravings.

Lacto-fermentation of vegetables is a traditional method of preserving vegetables, producing enzymes that increase the digestibility of foods. Similarly, it creates a host of healthy flora throughout the intestines for slowing and reversing a variety of illnesses, improving digestion, strengthening immunity, clearing skin issues, and increasing energy. In preserving our food in this manner, it becomes our ally.

If you are new to fermented foods, start with one tablespoon of kraut or fermented vegetables with each meal, and work your way up from there. 

Get the recipe here. If you prefer to purchase your kraut or other fermented vegetables, make sure you purchase the raw and unpasteurized kind. You will find these in the refrigerated section of your local market.

Kale

Alright, I think the holidays are finally over for most. Here’s what to do to feel less heavy and sluggish...

  • Drink warm lemon water first thing in the AM. dash of cayenne optional

  • Eat your last meal at least 3 hours before bedtime to allow digestion the you live to do it’s thing in peace and eat breakfast (make it green and clean) only if you are hungry. It’s ok to wait a couple hours after waking

  • Eat more greens. greens have fiber. fiber cleanses the colon of toxic waste. which greens? arugula, massaged or cooked kale and collards…any and all the greens that catch your eye

  • Reduce meat intake, eat more wild-caught fish, if you eat fish. plant eater only? fill up on quinoa, chickpeas and lentils. Make sure to add fragrant spices and fresh herbs like dill, cilantro, and parsley

  • Reduce the bread + cheese… by at least half or more

  • No more refined sugar … Focus on natural sugars instead like 1 -2 medjool dates.

  • Fill in the gaps and take your pills… some big hitters? magnesium, omega 3s, chlorophyll, vitamin Bs + vitamin C to name a few…
