I like to make a batch, then eat it in my lunches I take to work for the week with some edamame or tofu served on top for more protein!

A smoothie is the perfect breakfast to enjoy on a hot summer day when you don’t have a lot of extra time in the morning.

I love sauerkraut! I used to always buy it at the store, but I decided to start making my own a while back and it is so easy and kind of fun, because you can add your own flavors to it!

I add ginger and garlic to give it loads of flavor, and it is good on sandwiches, as a side dish, on top of salads or Buddha bowls, or just to snack on!
