MAKING SAUERKRAUT ✨
.
Sauerkraut is great for gut health 🌻 and it's really easy to make!
.
After making it plenty of times, I now have kraut making confidence πŸ’πŸΌ so I thought I would share the easiest kraut recipe to help you make your own!
.
What you need:
🌱1 cabbage (I used half in my video because I had a smaller jar)
🌱Sterilized jar
🌱1 tablespoon salt
🌱Fresh dill
.
1. Remove the outer layer of cabbage and set aside.
2. Using a clean knife and chopping board, remove the cabbage stem and thinly slice the cabbage.
3. Place cabbage in a bowl, sprinkle with salt and massage with clean hands. As you do this the cabbage will break down and become watery. Keep doing this for 5-10 minutes.
4. Place the fresh dill in the jar and add the cabbage, pressing the cabbage down with a clean spoon as you go. Ensure the cabbage stays submerged in liquid.
5. Fold the cabbage leaf and place on top of the sliced cabbage. This is to ensure the cabbage stays submerged in liquid.
6. Pour any left over liquid into the jar to cover the cabbage. Ensure you leave 1-2 cm space at the top of the jar. If you overfill the jar it can explode.
7. Leave to ferment in a cool room for 3-10 days. Keep checking it to ensure the cabbage remains submerged.

I want to inspire you to find joy in cooking good food, to encourage you to take time for yourself and know that you aren't alone in this wellness journey 🌿
.
When I post certain food on my account I get a few comments questioning if it's ok to eat when you have a thyroid disease - which is fine, I absolutely love connecting with you all πŸ’•βœ¨
.
My personal philosophy on food is to have a balanced diet and to stay away from food that makes me feel unwell. These include: refined sugar, gluten, processed food and junk food. What makes me feel great is good quality meat and fresh fruit and veggies. πŸŽπŸπŸŠπŸ‡πŸ“πŸ₯•πŸŒ½πŸ₯‘πŸ—
.
This account is all about sharing my journey and what works for me. Everyone is different and I encourage you to find what works for you β˜€οΈ there are so many resources available to help you πŸ“šπŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ«
.
If you aren't sure where to start, I found learning about AIP and reading The Autoimmune Wellness handbook by @mickeytrescott and @angie.alt really helpful.
.
Never stop fighting for your health and happiness 🌟🌻

2. Add the cinnamon stick and coconut sugar. Bring water to the boil.
3. Reduce heat to medium and add the pears. Poach for 20 minutes.
4. Remove pears from heat and drain the water.
To make crumble:
1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius (fan forced).
2. On a baking tray place tigernuts, almonds, coconut, cinnamon and drizzle with honey.
3. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.

Eating well doesn't need to be complicated πŸ™ˆπŸŒΏ
.
One of the easiest meals to make is roast meat and veggies πŸ€— it only takes 5 minutes to prepare, some time in the oven and your done! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
.
The key is to buy really good quality meat and cook it perfectly. I'm still learning how to cook meat well so I tend to google the best cooking time and temperature before I start. I'm slowly building my meat cooking confidence ✨
.
In this video I'm prepping lamb tenderloin sprinkled with roast black garlic and rosemary powder, sweet potato, onion and cloves of garlic. πŸ˜‹
