Tempeh is a soybean cake that originated in Indonesia where the soybean is traditionally fermented in banana leaves. It’s very high in protein and because it is fermented, is an easily digested protein.


Sauerkraut is a wonderful addition to any meal, as it supplies necessary probiotics to the gut and boosts immunity. Buy organic whenever possible!
