The chef, the best healthy lifestyle influencer according to the Live Organic Awards - 2019 and the author of the books “Food as a holiday” and “Healthy cooking” Sergey Leonov told us about the rich world of fermented foods.

Simply put, fermentation is fermentation, we only need to start the process and control it, the rest of the miracle will happen without our help. Yes, yes, a real miracle, because we take seemingly simple products, add a pinch of spices, and as a result we get an elixir of youth and health, a superfood that fills us with antioxidants, strengthens the immune system and prevents the penetration of infections into the body.

There is only one condition: to cook them yourself, and not to buy them in supermarkets, because in store products there is usually sugar in the composition, which nullifies all the useful properties.

I have not heard about the benefits of probiotics, probably only a deaf person, but they do not stay here for a long time, so there will be little sense from using them on great holidays, but if you make it a good habit, you will quickly feel the effect. Calm down: there is no need to have breakfast, lunch and dinner with cabbage.

Fermented products are not only sauerkraut, but also sauces (mustard, tomato salsa, avocado mayonnaise with the addition of probiotic cabbage juice), sour milk (water kefir, maybe not so well-known, but it is great friends with baked goods, replacing the sourdough there, yeast, sugar). And the drinks! If you want - make homemade lemonade, if you want - fashionable kombucha (a drink made from kombucha).

If you care what will happen tomorrow, start the operation "Fermentation", and we are sure: the body will thank you.
