On April 15th, 2014 we talked about “Burgers” and the delicious sauces that we put on top. Above are the RAW boys after doing the Kraut Trot. Our raw krauts go on burgers, mushroom rolls and many of our other items. Unpasteurized, fermented vegetables like this raw sauerkraut create an environment that is full of probiotics, viable enzymes and minerals which are important for a healthy body. The probiotic good bacteria and enzymes in these fermented foods help populate our gut and intestines with Lactobacilli which are really important for healthy digestion. They also help eliminate toxins from our body so that it can operate more efficiently. When the body is working the way it should, then you will feel great, have more energy, and look beautiful too. Eating these fermented vegetables can also help with weight loss and lead to more energy, as well as balance out the pH levels of your body. When everything is working as it should, you will find your immunity is boosted from having a healthy gut and you will start to really feel cleaner.
Other benefits include:
1 – Helps control cravings that you might have for sweets
2 – Good source of vitamin C
3 – Cabbage is great in helping prevent cancer and when fermented, isothiocyanates are produced that have been found to also prohibit the growth of cancer so a double whammy in fermented cabbage
4 – Glucosinolates are produced in the fermentation process that help activate the body’s natural antioxidant enzymes, and the flavonoids in it are helpful for protecting artery walls from oxidative damage
5 – Great for ulcers
6 – Aides the pancreas which secretes essential digestive enzymes into the stomach
7 – Fights candida yeast
We could go on and on. So next time you are pouring on that sauce and licking your lips because of the great taste, your body will be thankful to you and the Raw Boys.
