Nourishment Notes

Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread is a fermented food. Fermented foods may provide the body with beneficial bacteria to help promote gut health. Although not gluten-free, sourdough bread can sometimes be better tolerated in those who are sensitive to gluten.


Eggs are an excellent source of lean protein, to help grow new cells. They also contain lutein that may promote eye health and choline important for memory.

Remission Remix
