1. Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is typically made from water, salt and cabbage. You can purchase many different flavors of sauerkraut. The sour taste comes from the breakdown of lactose by the probiotic bacteria native to the cabbage. It can be easily made at home in large quantities with a kit like this. This essentially draws all the air out of a mason jar that has the cabbage and salt in it. You simply let the jar sit and ferment and you’ve got home-made sauerkraut.

2. Kefir

First, how do you pronounce it? Kefir is simply just fermented milk. It has a texture of a melted milk shake and it comes in multiple flavors. My favorite brand is Maple Hill Creamery because it’s made from grass-fed dairy and there is a plain version that has no added sugar. If you have any problems with dairy this should not be your first choice, unless you purchase one made from coconut milk or almond milk. Watch out for brands that have a lot of added sugar. This article explains a lot more about Kefir. You can also purchase kefir starter if you want to make your own. Kefir is a great source of protein, vitamin B and calcium.
