Love it or hate it but “sour cabbage” is THE German super food.
Aussie hubby and I eat it with, of course, sausages (or steak). It is so easy to prepare – simply heat up with a little water.
Make sure you buy genuinely fermented sauerkraut which is available in most health food stores. Unfortunately, the supermarket brands are often loaded with vinegar.
Three reasons for adding a little sauerkraut to your diet:
- It has a high vitamin content, especially vitamin C. Sauerkraut helps to prevent vitamin deficiency.
- It is also a good source of lactobacillus – it has more than yoghurt!
- It is loaded with minerals, such as iron, calcium, zinc and magnesium.
Just a little note on the side, do not over-indulge if your tummy is not used to fermented food as Aussie hubby discovered during our last Germany trip…
