Loving this salty, sour, savoury and sweet salad from Live Eat Learn… the superstar ingredient in this healthy salad is Sauerkraut and I’d like to take a moment to talk about why it’s so great for you.
Sauerkraut is incredibly nutritious and healthy… here’s why you should be eating more of it (and this salad is a great place to start!):
It provides probiotics and vitamin K2, known for their health benefits
It can help strengthen your immune system, improve your digestion and reduce your risk of certain diseases.
Due to the probiotic, gut-loving properties, it may improve your mood as it promotes a healthier balance in the gut.
