As a nutritionist I know the importance of gut health, so I’m on a bit of a mission to get you making even just ONE probiotic rich fermented food, and in my opinion this recipe is one of the easiest of them all! Implementing homemade fermented foods into your diet will aid with your digestion, boost your beneficial probiotic, enzyme and vitamin intake. You can easily change up the flavour profile of your probiotic pickles depending on your personal preferences by adding in mustard seed, chili, dill and/ or ginger for something a little different.
