I know, this question might seem a little basic for most of you, but I really really want to know.
So, I am on Paleo, and if you are 100% true Paleo, you should not consume milk/dairy products, sugar and salt. Am I correct so far?
Both sauerkraut and kimchi have salt. Yogurt and kefir are made with dairy (milk). Kombucha tea requires sugar to aid fermentation.
I do not doubt for one second that fermented foods are very good for human digestive system, I am a total believer in fermented foods.
I just want somebody to explain to me - how is salt in saurekraut fits under Paleo umbrella? Where did hunters and gatherers would get salt for their saurekraut and milk for their kefir?
