Learn How to Eat Fermented Foods with our Best Recipes for Gut Health

Posted by Kelly Miller on

Fermented foods are a great way to keep your gut healthy.

The two most important things to know about eating ferments are that you should eat them consistently, and that you should eat a variety of them.

While there's not a known limit that we’re aware of, it's best to start off slow and work your way up in serving sizes. We recommend 3 servings a day of fermented foods. You don't want to overdo it if you're not used to that amount of probiotics.  (We wrote a full article to tell you more about it. Read it here.)

While we know this to be true, we also know it can be hard to find ways to incorporate probiotic rich recipes into your daily habits. This article is devoted to all the creative ways we at Olive My Pickle suggest adding ferments to your every day recipes.

So sit back, relax, and let us show you how to eat fermented foods the right way!
