The high levels of Lactobacillus probiotics found in kimchi can help soothe diarrhea, calm irritable bowel syndrome, and strengthen the lining of the intestines among other health benefits. The only problem is that typical kimchi recipes are prepared in a salt brine in order to kill harmful bacteria which leads to a high sodium content. Check out our recent article by Lauren Fellows to learn more about kimchi. If you want to be truly Paleo, here’s a kimchi recipe that doesn’t add any salt. Feel this recipe is a little to “hard-core” for your cooking tastes, then try this not-quite Paleo but still healthier kimchi recipe.
