What is Kimchi?
Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish made with salted, fermented vegetables. It typically contains cabbage and seasonings like sugar, salt, onions, garlic, ginger, and chili peppers. Though usually fermented for a few days to a few weeks before serving, it can also be eaten fresh, or unfermented, immediately after preparation. It offers many health benefits including:
Low in calories
Contains healthy probiotics
Helps boost your immune system
Works as an anti-inflammatory
Can help promote weight loss
May reduce your risk of heart disease
