For once, it's good to find yourself in a pickle. But only if it's a naturally fermented pickle - not a pickle that's been brined in vinegar. Naturally fermented pickles contain lactobacillus, a good bacteria that promotes healthy digestion.

 A Study in the British Journal of Nutrition also claim naturally fermented foods fight bloat - and just in time for holiday binge season - they can help prevent fat storage after eating too much.

If you're not a fan of pickles, sauerkraut or kimchi (a traditional Korean side dish of fermented vegetables) are other options for adding lactobacillus to your diet.
