We use a mineral-rich, pure and unrefined Mediterranean sea salt. It is non-iodized and contains no caking agents or added preservatives.
We source most of our vegetables from local farms. That means just 1-2 days between harvest and fermentation; this preserves phytonutrients and creates a more nutritious product.
Pickles containing vinegar or sugar are not lactic-acid fermented and are therefore not a probiotic, gut-healthy pickle. Period.
Some call it ‘wild fermentation’ because it creates an abundant growth of natural, live probiotics. Pasteurization would kill these live cultures, so we don’t do it.
Scramble or fry up 2 - 3 whole eggs in butter, ghee or coconut oil, along with some spinach. Enjoy with kimchi or kraut on the side.
Toss a salad with mixed greens, avocado, veggies, raw seeds and a generous pour of extra virgin olive oil. Top with a serving of kraut along with the brine, no salad dressing necessary.
Pick your protein and saute a large portion (half a plate) of greens - kale, chard or spinach with garlic, coconut oil and sea salt. Pickle on the side.
These are all so delicious! Love all the flavors.
I love all the different flavors! I haven't had one I didn't like yet. I was a little scared to try some of the "sweet" sounding ones, as I don't typically go for sweet pickles, but to my surprise they were the most wonderful! Not sweet like I thought, just complementing flavors!
I have enjoyed exploring the different flavors of each LiveBrine. My wife and I have a shot glass full for each of us after every meal. I’m sure my gut biome is loving it too.
I stopped eating all sugar (except whole fruits & veggies) and all flour January 1st, which I have done in the past, but in the past I've suffered with strong sugar cravings so I struggled to stick with it. This time I have these wonderful brines and it's making a difference! When I get snacky in the evening I take a shot of the brine and my cravings dissipate. I'm down 10 lbs so far in 1 month!
We love the pickles and brine a lot!!
