Eating probiotic-rich foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, yoghurt, kombucha, miso and fermented vegetables is an easy and delicious way to restore or boost gut health. Sauerkraut is a traditionally prepared dish made with fermented vegetables.

It can be expensive to buy from specialist health food stores but is actually really simple to make yourself. Here Ben has a handy tutorial to help you make your own ferments at home.


  • 1 cabbage 
  • 1 tbsp of mineral rich salt 


  1. Clean your cabbage.
  2. Shred the cabbage through a food processor
  3. Add salt and mix cabbage by hand, squeezing cabbage to break down the cell walls
  4. Place in a jar. Pack cabbage as tightly as possible and place a stone on top to continue placing pressure on the cabbage and holding it down.  
  5. Leave for one week at room temperature. 
  6. Enjoy.
