Five Ways to Eat More Cultured Foods

 

1. Replace your beverages with fermented versions

If we add up all the beverages we drink during the day, it can end up being quite a bit! There are a number of delicious cultured and fermented options that are easy to make:

  • Water Kefir: A dairy-free kefir made from sugar water, juice or coconut water
  • Kombucha: A delicious fermented tea with many flavoring options. Kick it up a notch with Kombucha Coffee.
  • Rejuvelac: Made from fermented grains
  • Kvass: There are numerous ways to make it but we suggest starting with the beet kvass version
