My Probiotic Salad aka 100% raw organic fermented vegetables is one of the most popular items on the Kelly’s Kitchen Farmacy menu and for good reason.
Canned sauerkraut is an absolute no for me and my clients. Never mind the nasty chemicals that leach into the food from the can itself (hormone disruptors like BPA), but your pretty much buying dead salty cabbage soaked in vinegar. It’s not so appetizing when I put it like that, is it?
Almost everything on the shelf in the grocery store now a days has been pasteurized in one way or another to kill bacteria. Pasteurization is basically heating food to high temperatures to destroy any pathogens. Unfortunately heating destroys the good bacteria too. The fermented vegetables in the glass jars found in the refrigerated section are a whole lot better than the canned stuff on the shelf. My favorite brand is Bubbies. This brand doesn’t pasteurized their cabbage, but they do Flash Heat their products which destroys about 10% of the probiotics in addition to all of the beneficial enzymes, and all of the Vitamin C, but even then it’s still so much better than the canned stuff.
My homemade fermented vegetables are 100% raw and organic. They have not been heated in any way and do not require vinegar, which is very acidic and irritating to the body. I only use ‘real’ salt and filtered water to make the brine. I like to experiment with different recipes but my favorite is beets, carrots, jalapeno, cabbage, ginger, and garlic.
One Hundred Percent raw probiotic salad contains 100% of the beneficial organisms that help to heal and repair your body. It is high in Vitamin C which aids in collagen repair for joint health and prevention of wrinkles, it also helps to brighten & tighten your skin. Vitamin C is also extremely beneficialyou’re your health. It helps to prevent many sicknesses and helps to heal disease. The enzymes in the 100% raw probiotic salad help us digest our food, are responsible for healing and repairing, and they carry out every action in our bodies. Without enzymes we would not be living. Humans, animals, and plants all naturally contain their own enzymes. However, the older we get the less enzymes our bodies have so we need to get it through food. Only raw food contains enzymes because heat destroys them. Raw organic probiotic salad is abundant in enzymes, unlike the store bought kind.
Although I recommend taking both a good probiotic supplement for insurance, eating probiotics in whole food form is more beneficial because it has a better chance of getting into your gut for recolonization. You are also getting all the vitamins & minerals, fiber, and live enzymes, which you are not getting from a pill.
I think it’s incredibly easy to ferment your own vegetables but I do understand that time is a factor and sometimes confidence in the kitchen can be a factor, too. This is why I sell my homemade fermented vegetables.
I try to keep my prices very reasonable with consideration of the time it takes me to make the food and the intention I put into every batch. During my research I’ve seen quality name brands as high as $25 for 32oz. I considered upping my prices, but I want my meals to be affordable.
Unfortunately I do not ship, yet, but I do deliver within 5 miles of Marlborough, MA and 5 miles of Wayland, MA or you can pick them up from me at my home or office.
The prices for my homemade 100% raw organic fermented vegetable salad are
16oz jar for $8
32oz jar for $14
