Break Stress Fast

Runner's World (UK) - - Fermented Food -

Adding a pro­bi­otic el­e­ment to your break­fast may help curb anx­i­ety – a study in the jour­nal Psy­chi­a­try

Re­search found that reg­u­lar con­sump­tion of sauer­kraut leads to higher lev­els of GABA, a neu­ro­trans­mit­ter that tem­pers your brain’s fear re­sponse. Mix­ing cele­riac into your rösti also bumps up the fi­bre you need to feed your di­ges­tive mi­crobes, while the sharp­ness of ‘kraut is bal­anced out by the creamy eggs.

Fer­men­ta­tion in­creases the bioavail­abil­ity of the vi­ta­min C in sauer­kraut by 200 per cent com­pared with raw veg. Hal­loumi, like other ewe’s milk cheeses, is eas­ier on your di­ges­tion than most, and adds an ex­tra 8g of pro­tein on top of the eggs.
