Faithful readers of this blog may recall that I love sauerkraut. Recently I had some time while cooking up a big pot full to read the nutritional info on the back of the package. Imagine my surprise to learn that a "serving" of sauerkraut is only two tablespoons!
That's ridiculous, in my humble opinion. Apparently the guy who came up with this ruling was brought up to eat sauerkraut only as a condiment on top of a hot dog.
(I have nothing against eating sauerkraut with hot dogs, but I believe that when you do so, you put a big heaping pile of kraut on your plate and eat it with a fork in between bites of your dog.)
Here's what I consider to be a decent, if smallish, serving of kraut:
The good news is that even if you eat a cup of kraut, it's only 40 calories. Let's have some for lunch.
