Health Coach Note:
If you are choosing sauerkraut, make sure it is ONLY water, salt, and organic cabbage to stick with Level 1 protocol. Eden Organic Sauerkraut is a brand that works well if you’re buying it packaged. If you’re feeling adventurous in the kitchen, you can also learn to make your own! If you can’t find sauerkraut, you can always top with finely chopped cabbage.
