Is fermented food primal? I have been flirting with buying a fermentation crock for veggies.
What could be more primal than allowing the bacteria that naturally occurs on our foods to ferment them at room temperature? We make homemade sauerkraut and kimchee and it is delicious!!!!!! No refrigeration necessary, the kraut keeps for months at room temp - the original solution to the food stroage/preservation problem - plus all those bacteria are just itching to get into our guts and help keep things healthy down there.
Yum... I love fermented foods!
There was no refrigeration during paleolithic times. Food would naturally become fermented all the time. I love me some sauerkraut!

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
Kimchee<3333 It makes my food digest so much better, i can just feel it. Or maybe i'm just making myself think that…hahah either way its delicious and good for you!

I miss natto... it's soybeans (however fermented, do'h) but I'm still figuring if I could ferment something else with my culture... Anyone has some ideas? I'm thinking of rice!

Not only 'primal', but pretty much required when the years pile on. As we age we tend to produce less stomach acid. Fermented foods help. It is the custom of most Japanese and Taoists to include something fermented in every meal.
