Fermented Foods

  • Two of the world’s most nutritious plants, lamb’s quarters and purslane, are weeds, and some of the healthiest traditional diets, such as the Mediterranean, make extensive use of wild greens.
  • Plants in the fields and forests contain higher levels of various phytochemicals than their domesticated cousins.
  • Many traditional cultures swear by the health benefits of fermented foods, such as yoghurt, sauerkraut, soy sauce, kimchi, and sourdough bread, which have been transformed by live microorganisms.
  • Many fermented foods also contain probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that help the digestive and immune systems function better and reduce allergic reactions and inflammation.
