These mild and slightly sweet carrots are a great gateway pickle for those who find the strong flavor of kimchi or kraut overwhelming. It’s not necessary to buy organic cabbage for this recipe, as you’re only using the cabbage leaves to form a barrier between the carrots and the weighted jar. Serve with hummus or a creamy herb dip, or grate the carrots and toss into salads.
Soda that’s good for you? Yes, please! The key to making this gut-healthy drink is to start with a ginger bug. Similar in concept to a sourdough starter, a ginger bug is a fermented mixture of fresh ginger, evaporated cane juice and water, and it’s what gives homemade sodas a refreshing natural fizziness. The time it takes for the soda to fully ferment depends on the temperature in your home – if it’s warmer, 2 days should do it, but you might need up to 10 days if your home is on the cooler side.
Just gazing at the selection of nut butters on the store shelves these days can drive you nutty with indecision. But if you’re looking for omega-3, almond butter is the one to toss into your cart, thanks to its naturally high levels of the fatty acid.
These single-serve packets make an ideal lunch or light dinner. To avoid getting any shells in the noodles, crack the eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl and pour into the wells.

Vietnamese cuisine treasures the balance between textures and flavors. In this brilliant dish, we’ve mixed crunchy vegetables with soft noodles and juicy pork tenderloin, and blended sharp ginger with pungent garlic for pleasing contrast. To maximize your intake of sulforaphane, a cancer risk–reducing compound found in cruciferous veggies, choose broccoli sprouts. Sulforaphone levels are 10 to 100 times higher in three-day-old broccoli sprouts than they are in broccoli.
Walnut pesto with pungent ginger and fragrant fresh basil is the hero that brings this dish together. Walnuts have the highest concentration of antioxidants among nuts, while also containing essential fatty acids, so keep them on hand and snack on them often! In this dish, spaghetti squash is a carotenoid-rich stand-in for pasta, while protein-packed shrimp is among the seafood picks with the least amount of mercury.
