It’s time to share your probiotic lunch ideas! In the coming weeks, we’re going to hit every meal and then some. The goal being: to share ideas and recipes for getting probiotics with every bite (or at least every meal).
Got old or new posts with probiotic lunch ideas? Link up by adding a link to your post in the thumbnail linky tool below. There’s no limit on how many or how old. Just add away! Please make sure your post links to this post, and feel free to use the picture in your post(s).

The key, I think, to eating probiotics at every meal is making sure some of element of the meal is lacto-fermented. Lacto-fermentation is a broad category; it covers any food where lactic-acid producing bacteria or yeasts preserve a food. Not only can fermented fruits and veggies (like sauerkraut) be called lacto-fermented, but so can cultured dairy.
Keep in mind that in order to receive probiotic benefits, the lacto-fermented foods can’t be cooked; heat destroys the fragile beneficial organisms that are so good for the gut.
My addition to this series is a probiotic chicken salad recipe. It is in a separate post, where I also share other probiotic lunch ideas. My apologies for getting these posts up late today. I’m behind today because I was up late and early with a goat giving birth — to two healthy kids, praise the Lord!
So… now it is your turn! Bloggers, link up your probiotic lunch ideas in the thumbnail linky box above. Everyone, please do share in the comments what ways you get probiotics at lunches. Thanks for participating — I really look forward to your ideas. The breakfast ideas and comments last week were great!
