How to Make Probiotics/Lacto-fermented Sauerkraut for One Dollar

Did you know you can make probiotics at home for about one dollar?  In this blog, I’m going to share a simple video demo for how to do it.

Of course, I’m not talking about pricey supplements.  I’m talking about REAL lacto-fermented foods which are alive with naturally occurring probiotics.

And lacto-fermented sauerkraut is one of the easiest lacto-fermented foods to make at home.

Now, I know you might be saying, “Yeah but sauerkraut is gross!”

However, I’d bet a thousand dollars you’re probably referring to canned sauerkraut.  This is the sauerkraut most people are accustomed to eating and yes, it is totally gross.  Seriously, I have no idea how anyone can stomach that stuff.

Furthermore, canned sauerkraut is not REAL, lacto-fermented sauerkraut and therefore lacks any health benefits.

I had no idea how delicious sauerkraut could taste until I started making it home myself.  Trust me, you gotta try it.  You’ll be amazed how fresh, crisp and delicious it can taste.    And you’ll get the added benefit of all those good bacteria that are present in lacto-fermented foods that we sometimes call “probiotics.”

And not only is it easy, it’s also ridiculously cheap.

Let’s do a quick price comparison…

It’s common for a good quality bottle of probiotics to run over $40.

Well you can make your own good quality, organic sauerkraut (which contains a greater diversity and amount of probiotics) at home for about $1 per jar.

And in addition to the probiotics in the sauerkraut you also get actual nutrients like B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium.

Hmmmmm…which would you choose?

Well, when you learn to make your own sauerkraut (and other fermented vegetables and drinks), the choice becomes pretty obvious.  You just need to learn to how to do it.

So let me help you with that!

Here’s a video demo for how to make sauerkraut at home that I made for my digestive wellness class:

See, I told you it was easy.

And yes, each jar of the ‘kraut cost me one whole dollar.  I bought a whole head of organic cabbage for three bucks at my local farmers market and I made three twelve ounce jars from that one head:

Who says good quality food has to be expensive?

And same for that sauerkraut pounder!
