In the past few years, I’ve tried quite a lot of new foods and fermented foods have become one of my favourites.
Well, I have a weak stomach:
– I cannot take spicy food like chillies and tom yam, which sucks quite a lot of joy out of life;
– I get a lot of gas after I eat chickpeas although I love hummus! Once, we ate at a super yummy Turkish restaurant but I spent the WHOLE night with a distended stomach. The next time we ate there, Hubby only allowed me one measly teaspoon of hummus
Anyway, I read that your stomach needs “good bacteria”, which I probably lack of. Due to that, I’ve been trying to eat fermented foods every chance I get e.g. kim chi, yoghurt and now, natto
When I explained to the Hubs what natto was, he cringed. When he saw how stringy it is, he declined LOL
Interestingly, it tastes good especially when you eat it with lots of wasabi – it smells like old socks though!
My son actually wanted to try one of the natto maki I had (unlike my wimpy Hubby) – I was so proud of my fussy eater
Next, I’m going to try natto with freshly-cooked rice and a raw egg!
Mmm…anyone wanna join me?
