Pickles from Your Bubby

I love this graphic. I am sure a happy marriage needs a few more ingredients than at least one good cook, but it is a good start!

Even if your marriage does not have at least one good cook, or if you are single, you can still enjoy the health benefits and great taste of delicious sauerkraut. Bubbies brand of sauerkraut and other various pickles are  fantastic.

The ingredients are wholesome and simple and the taste is crunchy, salty-sour and just plain good.

You can find them in the refrigerated section at your natural food store. It is important to either make your own pickles or to buy pickles from the refrigerated section of the store, as opposed to the canned variety or pickles in jars on the shelf.

Buying refrigerated pickles is great because the refrigeration ensures that the live bacteria that was created during the fermentation process is still alive and kickin'. This makes all the difference because it will help the flora in your intestinal tract flourish, which means your digestion will be stronger. When your digestion works well, you can absorb the nutrients from your food better and you feel energetic, not bloated and have regular bowel movements. Yup, I just said that - it's true!

Try eating a little bit of sauerkraut, pickle or fermented food each day and see how you feel! If it is too salty, rinse the pickle in cool water before eating.

Happy digestion!
