Fermented Vegetables
« on: January 31, 2011, 12:12:21 pm »
Is there any place for fermented vegetables on a raw paleo diet? If one is to eat vegetables, it makes more sense to me that one provides their body with predigested foods and beneficial microflora.

let me know your thoughts.

It seems that every culture on earth that knew how to culture foods, would culture their food. I know that doesn't make it healthy and it may not be exactly paleo but I think its healthy to do.

Has a place in my diet, although not particularly large. Fermenting can be better than just eating many raw vegetables, and probably superior to cooked when applicable. Many people choose for whatever reasons not to eat many vegetables, hence not alot of fermented vegetables. Fermented foods of any kind are usually looked down upon by alot of the natural hygiene camps..so that filters into alot of peoples concepts of raw even in paleo. Since it is processing, odds are the most ancient ancestors didn't eat much fermented non fruit bearing plants, but then again they didn't have issues with gut flora or added nutrition. What kinds of things do you ferment?

Mainly sauerkraut, but I have on occasion, fermented red bell peppers, carrots, and beet kvass.

I've eaten sauerkraut, though I guess it's not exactly rawpalaeo. It makes my stools far too large, though.

Sometimes I eat cooked veggies, then I eat fermented foods like sour kraut and kim chee.
I am a hyperactive person who benefits from eating some cooked starches.
Last night I made one gallon of pink sour kraut, five heads of lettuce, 2purple 3green.  :D

Could it be possible to eat fermented vegetables like pickles aged in a jar without salt and just water using the same science as high meat? (Airing it etc)

Be careful of histamine... is in all fermented foods, veg, fruits, meat, alcohol, vinegar, Kombucha...
Many people in the health food movement are a bit obsessed by fermentation, but also many develop after some time problems related to histamine intolerance. Histamine is a neurotransmitter, important for brain, braking down food, connected with the sleep rhythm. I got hyper, unfocused, sleeping disorders etc, so don't over do it.
Ah, yes, forgot to say: cheese is really bad if you this sensitivity (and all other fermented dairy products). Which makes it hard to consume dairy, as many people cannot tolerate milk.
It's not necessary to go totally histamine-free if you have this problem (kind of hard actually), because we actually really nead it...
