Did you know that a tablespoon of #sauerkraut
juice has 1.5 TRILLION CFU of #probiotics
First of all, what is CFU? .
It refers to the number of bacterial cells in a given measurement, otherwise known as “colony forming units.” .
This should impress you since supplemental probiotics are dosed in the billions, not trillions!
So, how great is that?! I am such a believer in #foodismedicine
So many of us spend money on daily probiotics when food can really be an affordable substitute. Let’s explore how this can be an option for your child. Giving one (or more!) of the suggested foods below would add so much to their daily health by preventing disease & shortening the duration and intensity of a current illness. Also, probiotic-rich foods are a MUST to give before or after #vaccines
, & any time your child is prescribed an #antibiotic
. This is so very important! .
1️⃣ Raw sauerkraut juice – straight up on a spoon or mixed with tahini or avocado mayo to use as a dressing or dip. .
2️⃣. Kefir – goat or coconut preferably, straight up or mixed in a smoothie or top with granola. .
3️⃣. Lacto-fermented cucumbers (pickles*) – straight up or diced into tuna/chicken salad. *must be prepared without heat exposure. .
4️⃣. Kimchi – for those explorative eaters who like a kick of spice. .
5️⃣. Aged cheese from pasture raised cows - straight up cheese slices or on apples, crackers .
6️⃣. Raw apple cider vinegar – may or may not be a hit for kids. Try to mix in a salad dressing or a dip. .
7️⃣. Kombucha – many kids love this! *Find ones with less than 5 grams of sugar per serving. Some are too high in sugar. .
Now go on & feed your kiddos those good bugs! I promise, their guts will thank you with fewer doctors visits & less chronic disease as they grow up. .
👉🏻And YES, this info applies to us adults too! Eat up! It is never too late to feed your kids these foods!
