Purple Cultured Veggies

by | Feb 7, 2017 | 0 comments

Our nutritionist Jordan creates a big batch of these cultured veggies every week because they are incredibly important to begin nourishing and healing the gut. Cultured veggies are rich in beneficial bacteria to help re-balance the gut flora, they will help to boost your immune system, fight inflammation, make the nutrients and minerals more bio-available to the body and also aid with digestion. These cultured veggies are great to mix through salads, have with poached eggs, spinach and avocado for breaky or simply eaten as is.
