I'll wait to stop smoothies until the tests come back. Still have to talk to my Dr about seeing a gastrinalogist. I keep forgetting.

Sauerkraut? That's a new one, to me. I'll have to check it out. Your diet sounds just like mine. I've taken the enzymes for years, too. Thanks for the tip!

My doctor said it had to be "real" sauerkraut. I guess there is some cheap junk that doesn't do the trick so you have to spend the money and get something authentic from some place like Whole Foods. Or you can make your own pickled food.

Yeh, same boring diet. We should have a party together.

Does your doctor have M.D. after his name?

Yum, sauerkraut, I love it Only unpasteurized has the probiotics. The real fermented stuff.

most sauerkraut sold in grocery stores is pasteurized and therefore contains no live probiotics. - See more at: 10 {Store-Bought} Sources of Probiotics | Whistle Pig Hollow

Yes, it's been used medicinally for centuries. A Google search brings up all sorts of interesting information. CCc girl, I even used sauerkraut juice (the real thing) on a case of scratches on one of my horses, at my vet's suggestion. We couldn't get it to clear up using the conventional meds that the vets prescribe, so he thought we might as well give it a try. Cleared it right up!

I've never given it a thought for gut issues, but I read that it's been used for stomach ulcers (human) in Europe for a long time. Worth a try!

My old Bohemian/Czech grandmother taught me how to cook sauerkraut.

In a large pot, fry half a large onion in Crisco until golden. Add a can of sauerkraut. Add a half can of water with a teaspoon of sugar mixed into the sc can. Dump into pot. Sprinkle some caraway seed into the pot and cook for an hour or so and then let sit for a while. Better if cooked the day before.

Yummy with pork roast and dumplings and a bottle of beer !

That sounds delicious! Going to write that recipe down. I've always used the kraut that comes in a plastic bag.... what is difference between kraut in bag vs can?

Love it but don't dare to eat too much of it. Keeps me in the sitting room for a while.

Canned gooods are 'cooked' for preserving. Chances are the bag is fermented and needs to be kept fresh via refridgeration.

I will have to check next time I'm at the market, which might be today, yay! Our small 'country' market in the 'burg, Tops Family markets, actually has a few good deals this week. Euro cukes, celery and radish bunches all 1.25, 80% ground beef 2.99 a pound.

I need grain for the horses and it's on the way, and since we're moving I have minimal goods in the fridge.

I have some salmon, 'canned' pop biscuits and a pan of homemade cornbread in the oven. DH will like waking up to that.

That salmon was a steal, USA wild cought 5.99 a pound.
