"These breakfast fritters are not just low in carbs — they are high in micronutrients and will help balance your bloody sugar levels..."
As a diabetic, I can certainly appreciate the turn of phrase "bloody sugar levels" but I do wonder if it's a typo you might want to correct.

Thank you so much Ed, such a funny typo - fixed! 😊)

Do the probiotics in the sauerkraut survive the cooking? If so, how much heat can they handle? Can't wait to try this - even if the probiotics are dead before they get into my gut!

I don't think the gut-healing benefits will be the same for cooked fritters but I like to serve mine with a small side of raw sauerkraut just to keep the probiotics in 😊
