Hi folks! I am new to Whole30...my husband and I are on day 2. (Feel so blessed he is doing it along with me!) I have been making my own Kimchi for a long time. There are lots of easy recipes on Pinterest. Instead of using sugar I puree half of a pear and half of an apple in a cup of filtered water and add it to the rest of the ingredients. This greatly aids the fermentation process. Hope this helps!! (Sunja's from Whole Foods is also good, but as already mentioned, pricey. Kimchi is SOOO good for your gut---full of healthy probiotics.
