    Probiotic veggies are fermented veggies. Traditional kosher deli pickles and traditional sauerkraut were not made with vinegar but fermented through lacto fermentation making them full of healthy bacteria and NOT the bad kind. It is how they were preserved until the last century. This would also include traditional pickled beets and Korean kimchi. :) I made fermented carrots, pickles, and others.

Probiotic salsa is also just lacto fermented... usually using whey as a starter.. sometimes a purchased starter.

I am currently loving the home made pickles. If you ever had true deli pickles they have a slightly different flavor, tart, but SO good. :) Modern methods are used because of the long term storage done today.

Like yogurt or kefir or kombucha these are great for boosting your immune system and helping digestion and have the added benefit of K2.

I am trying to eat 2-3 servings of probiotic foods daily and I am doing more in the form of fermented veggies because the calories are lower. :)

Meal Plan 5-30

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Ooops missed a day...

Breakfast: scrambled eggs with turkey sausage and laughing cow cheese, kombucha, sliced tomatoes

Lunch: turkey burger topped with salsa, with a salad with light chipotle ranch

Snack: yogurt mixed with berries

Dinner: Fish tacos on low carb tortillas with chipotle slaw and a bit of lime juice and cilantro


Menu Plan 5-28

Monday, May 27, 2013

Breakfast: kefir smoothie, whole grain toast with sliced tomato and dill

Lunch: chipotle light chicken salad on a bed of spinach and baby romaine with red onions and tomato

Snack: yogurt and frozen berries

Dinner: cajun sausage (one link) with dirty rice and mixed grilled veggies with cajun seasoning, kombucha lemonade

I need to start tracking calories again... but at least I am planning healthy meals and watching portions.

To work on: drinking calories... between kefir and kombucha and sometimes coffee with half and half and fresh veggie/fruit mix juices, I am averaging 200-300 calories a day in beverages. Need to work on this. But I am trying to make sure that any calories I drink are nutritionally dense and not empty calories.

    Kombucha lemonade is really just lemon flavored kombucha :) I call it kombucha lemonade. Kombucha (in case you did not know) is a type of fermented beverage that is from Russia and China. As I am trying to include more probiotics in my food in a wide range of types, I am drinking kombucha a few times a week. Not a LOT.. but some. :) And a wide range of flavors is available at our local health food store as the owner makes some. I am going to buy another bottle today... I am leaning towards blueberry pomegranate. :) I am still learning to appreciate the tartness of kombucha and earlier this week I was blending it, 2/3 kombucha to 1/3 juice. I am liking it more and more. (Kinda like I used to only like highly sweetened yogurts but my palate is changing.)

    I like that you started with planning healthy meals, then identifying an area for improvement. Great strategy!
