Do you have an abundance of cucumbers?  Try this healthy and quick pickled cucumbers recipe.

Have you tried lacto-fermented foods?  Long ago…people knew how to preserve food without freezing or canning.  Lactic acid is a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of bacteria.  Starches and sugars in fruits and vegetables are converted into lactic acid.  This is called lactobacilli.  This lactobacilli enhances digestion and increases vitamin levels.  These helpful enzymes promote the growth of healthy gut flora and they are anti carcinogenic.  Lacto-fermented fruits and veggies are easy to make and last for months.  You’ll enjoy this quick pickled cucumbers recipe.
