Cultured Asian Salad

Feed Your Microbes

This salad is one of my very favorite cultured meals. It's perfect for summertime and a wonderful way to change your microbiome from the inside out. I try to eat fruits and veggies at every meal. It is one of the best ways to stay balanced and it's fantastic for lowering inflammation, balancing your hormones, and keeping those little microbes in your gut fed and happy. Microbes love the fiber in fruits and veggies and it makes them grow and multiply and this is a very good thing. So let's break down this meal. Prebiotics are food for your bacteria, think like fertilizer for your gut microbes. Probiotics are the different multi strains of microbes themselves.

In each ingredient, I'll let you know what you're getting in this tasty meal.

  • Kefir Nut Butter: prebiotics and probiotics
  • Soba Noodles: prebiotics
  • Zucchini: prebiotics
  • Red bell pepper: prebiotics
  • Cultured Carrots: prebiotics and probiotics
  • Green onion: prebiotics
  • Crunchy Rice Noodle: resistant starch, a different type of prebiotic

Every ingredient is feeding your microbiome! Enjoy your food and let it work for you. You are what you eat, every last bite!

Fermented Asian Salad

You're going to love this fresh fermented salad. Loaded with tons of probiotics and fresh and fermented veggies, this is heaven in a jar. Kefir nut butter sauce makes everything taste fantastic. Make this ahead of time, take it with you in a jar, and you'll have the most satisfying lunch or dinner. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat, which is a gluten-free seed. Buckwheat has been consumed in Asian cuisines for centuries, and it’s becoming more popular around the world, partially because of its health benefits. It has been shown to lower the risk of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure, plus it’s a good source of many healthy nutrients such as manganese and magnesium.
