Do you remember last month I shared on my newsletter a recipe for homemade sauerkraut? And I bet you thought “why on earth would I do that?” Well, I promised you more information if you tried it, and since it should be ready to eat by now, here it is. From Organic Facts  you can see that this fermented food leaves no stone un-turned in your body to improve your health, from boosting the immune system to energy production, this is a “superfood” in its own right and something you should add to an all around healthy diet.

Now you want to know “got a recipe for me?” Well I sure do! see below, and let me know if you like them.
