Fermented Foods-Health Benefits And How To Prepare
Devieka’s post on Yakult visit made me think about health benefits of fermented foods. Though undoubtedly the healthiest foods are the freshest of foods but with the amounts of pesticides and insecticides found in the available greenies scare me. In today’s world the safest food is the healthiest one and nothing can be better than fermented food. Raw yet eatable and risk free.
What is Fermented Food?
Fermented food in Indian words is ‘ Achar, Khamiri Roti, Murrabba etc.” In other words, it means ingredients like different vegetables and fruits preserved without preservatives and have been left to sit and steep until their sugars and carbs become bacteria-boosting agents. These come out to be pungent, probiotic powerhouses, which boost the good bacteria in your digestive tract, can help heal a multitude of health issues, like leaky gut and IBS, and can even lead to weight loss, better skin, and boosted immunity. Sugar and refined carbohydrates cause damage to the gut, while fermented foods heal.
How to make your own fermented food?
fermented food doesn’t mean something very costly and glamorous to eat. In fact, raw fermented vegetables are an amazing way to beautify and cleanse your body, from inside out. They are also a food that has been eaten by humans across many cultures for hundreds if not thousands of years, and eating them regularly is a really healthy practice to get into. And the good news is that you can make your own fermented food at home.

The other hidden benefit of eating fermented foods is that they can help to control cravings that you might have for sweets. This is because they help us to feel full, so your appetite is reduced. It is important to eat fermented foods regularly to actually experience all their amazing health benefits. What you need to do is get into the habit of adding them to your salads or even just having them as a side to other dishes you eat. They are particularly good to eat paired with proteins, Oh! I love red baby onions and garlic pods pickled in lime juice and mountain salt.
