Kimchi (Korean Sauerkraut/Fermented Cabbage) Recipe

I've been very busy with studying and work so I haven't been able to make a lot of blog posts. Anyway, I've realized that when you are on a gluten free and dairy free diet there are limited things that you could eat and you will also miss out on some very important vitamins, minerals, etc. For example, since I've been on a dairy-free diet, I haven't been able to eat Yogurt. Yogurt is the bacterial fermentation of milk and it also contains Probiotics which provides a lot of health benefits, such as creating a balance of good bacteria and bad bacteria in the gut and helping the immune system.
For the past 3 months or so I've been making Kimchi which can also provide me the probiotics that I would need. I got the idea for the recipe from Maangchi.
