Good bacteria plays an important part in a healthy gut diet plan and one of the best ways to start your day off in a nourishing way is to incorporate fermented foods into your morning routine. The saying “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” may have originated to sell cereal, but there is some truth to this idea. It’s especially important now, when many of us rush out the door in the morning to get the kids to school and head to the office - sometimes with only a cup of coffee and a processed pastry to sustain us. Eating a nutritious breakfast sets the tone for the day and can elevate your energy.
Enjoying fermented foods can help to maintain energy levels (as opposed to the spike and fall in energy that you may get from that processed pastry), and we found several breakfast recipes into which you can incorporate wildbrine’s organic, probiotic-rich fermented foods, including our sauerkrauts, kimchis, salsas, and sugar-free srirachas.
