Superhero’s for your Gut
I recently saw the new Batman Movie ” The Dark Knight Rises” Christian Bale once again struggles to keep Gotham City safe from Crime and Harm to citizens.
- Did you know that certain foods you eat, destroy your gut and it’s ability to fight off infections, weight gain and zapp your energy and moods?
Get some Superhero’s in there to kick some bad guy booty and clean up your gut!
They’re called Pro-Biotics ( they mean literally “for life”)
The best and most powerful enzymes – are found in fermented foods
EAT FERMENTED VEGETABLES!
Get thinner, gain energy, reduce bloat and digestive issues, and boost your immune system!
Last Weekend I hung out with my dad ( also a nutrition nerd) and made Cultured Vegetables. This is similar to Kimchi – but is not as spicy and has no animal products. These both contain vegetables that have fermented, to bring out optimal nutrition and eat up any bad stuff in your body! Mini Batmans– cleaning up any filth in their city (your gut)
I go through about 1 jar of fermented veg ( pickled carrots, cauliflower, cabbage or sea veg ) a week, and decided it’s time I make my own and save some money! We made about 13 jars for about $4/ jar. I buy smaller jars for about $6-$9.
Why do you need Fermented Foods?
Basically – unless you have always eaten a pristine diet, rich in nutrients, lots of veg and have never consumed any toxins, you need Pro-Biotics and healthy enzymes in your diet.
LIGHTEN UP! Increase your immunity, Lose Weight, Look Better and Feel Better.

Step 2. Peel necessary veg (carrots and Daikon)
Step 4: make culture. This is live enzymes that create the breakdown process in the veg and cause fermentation. Basically – the “ On” button to benefits.

Some filtered water .
9. Wait – Keep on counter for about 5 days. Then keep in fridge.
These keep for up to 2 years! Longer they sit – the fementation will increase, may want to eat sooner than later if you don’t like sour foods.
