National Pickle Day

Happy National Pickle Day!  Yep, it’s true–there is an entire day dedicated to celebrating the wonder that is the pickle.  But I bet you didn’t know just how wonderful pickles are.  Obviously, they are ridiculously delicious.  But they can also be insanely healthy, if done right!  Today, most pickles from the supermarket are pickled in vinegar and while they are a great low-calorie snack, they really don’t have much nutritional value.  But traditionally, pickles were naturally fermented, packing them full of healthy probiotics and making it easier for our bodies to absorb the nutrients inside.  So in honor of National Pickle Day, let’s ditch the processed foods and make our own, healthful version.  Get all the information and a simple recipe to get started over at one of our favorite blogs: Creative Simple Life.  Click the photo to be transported to the wonderful world of pickling!
