Orders and Immune Boosting Sauerkraut Recipe
Wow, what a week this has been. I’ve been shocked going into the supermarket last week to get my weekly shop.
I’ve had a huge surge in orders this week - my wholesale suppliers have been working around the clock to keep up with orders from smaller retail businesses like me and I will be replenishing stock that is running low this week.
If you are self-isolating as you have symptoms, please let me know and I will be happy to deliver but will leave on your doorstep. I will text you when I am there. Also, if you are self-isolating because you are at risk and would prefer me to leave on the doorstep, please just let me know and again I’ll be happy to do so and can call or text when I have delivered. I can’t however take responsibility for any goods that are left on the doorstep.
If you have elderly family or neighbours who aren’t able to access online shopping, please do ask them to call me if they want to place an order - I am happy to accept cash, cheques, bank transfer – any payment method.
1. ***EDIT*** My wholesaler as temporarily disabled any more orders from 8.45pm on 17th March so I cannot order in any more at the moment. If you would like to place an order for any in the future, please send me an email and I will be happy to add onto my next order.***
I will be placing an order by Wednesday 18th March with one of my suppliers. If anyone would like to buy cleaning liquids in 5 litre containers – hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry liquid, toilet cleaner, all-purpose cleaner etc, then please head to the bulk liquids price list on the website to look at what is on offer https://www.zerowastebulkfoods.co.uk/bulk-liquids-list. Please email me with your order as you won’t be able to order through the website (I will take the page down on Wednesday night as this is a one off as I don’t have space to buy these in bulk).
2. New in this week by several requests – organic pitted prunes, organic chopped apricots, non-organic whole apricots and organic wholewheat tagliatelle.
3. Finally, with potential extra time on our hands and everyone in need of immune boosting foods, here is a great sauerkraut recipe!
Sauerkraut is so, so easy to make and it is really great for your immune system. Why? Because it contains millions of beneficial bacteria that support the lining of our gut – and the strength of our immune system actually lies in our gut. The lining of our gut absorbs and transports nutrients across the intestinal wall and is also where the greatest number of immune cells are produced.
The good bacteria in sauerkraut pass through our bodies, so it is better to have a little bit often rather than a lot of it infrequently.
Using organic ingredients for sauerkraut is really important – we need the bacteria! Also, using locally sourced vegetables is better as the transit time is likely to be less and so more nutrients will be present. I bought my organic veggies from Greener Greens who source their organic food locally – and it comes delivered to my door with a smile on a Friday.
1 organic green / pointed cabbage
