Kimchi ... you either love it or hate it.
Definitely an acquired taste, kimchi is a hot and spicy traditional Korean dish made of spices and fermented veggies like cabbage, cukes, radishes, or green onions. If you don't like pickled things, don't even attempt a bite.
But it's great for your health and there are also tons of ways to work it into your everyday meals ...
Kimchi is among the World's Healthiest Foods and gives you 80 percent of your daily vitamin C and carotene intake.
It's also high in fiber, vitamins A and B, iron, and calcium, and is said to aid in digestion and possibly reduce cancer growth.
