Inspired by the cocktail, but without the rum of course 😉 Lime mint and spirulina which gives it the lovely colour.
Lime offers a plethora of vitamins and minerals, including potassium. Potassium is important for maintaining nerve function and healthy blood pressure levels. The fruit is also linked to antioxidants and bioflavonoids that researchers believe could lower the likelihood of cancer. The health benefits of lime include weight loss, improved digestion, reduced respiratory and urinary disorders, relief from constipation, and treatment of scurvy. It also aids in skin care and eye care.
Spirulina is a natural “algae” powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. It is one of the most potent nutrient sources available. Spirulina is a great source of other nutrients including (according to Wikipedia): “It contains vitamins B-1(thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3(nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A and vitamin E. It is also a source of potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium sodium and zinc.
Mint is a calming and soothing herb that has been used for thousands of years to aid with upset stomach or indigestion

Always keep refrigerated. Cool temperatures stall the fermentation process while keeping it alive, although they are quite tolerant of temperature changes. If you leave a jar of fermented vegetables at room temperature, it accelerates the ripening process so just don’t leave them out of the fridge for long periods of time. Similar to the way a fine cheese ages, it is a handcrafted food that is brimming with naturally occurring bacteria cultures in an active fermentation state.
Push the vegetables down with a clean spoon to keep them at their best.
Sauerkraut which is kept on the shelves of the supermarket has been pasteurised which means the probiotics have been irradiated.
