We’re talking about cultured foods- also called ferments. They’re a staple in my home and that’s because they are a nutritional SUPERFOOD.
Hippocrates said that ‘all disease begins in the gut’. And it’s where healing begins too….
More and more we are learning just how powerful it can be to eat fermented foods every day.
Researchers are calling ferments a ‘lost food group’. That’s because you’d be hard-pressed to find a group of people without a corresponding fermented food that is rooted in their tradition. Think: sauerkraut (Ukrainian), Kimchi (Korean), Miso (Asian), lassi and idli (Indian), and viili yogurt (Nordic), skyr (Icelandic). Unfortunately, many of these foods have disappeared from family meals altogether and what’s found on grocery store shelves is mostly a mass-produced, pasteurised (dead) version….
Luckily, it’s not hard to make your own. And, what’s even better, is you can tailor what YOU make to YOUR family’s tastes!
Fermented foods are FOUNDATIONAL to many of the most effective healing diets in the world today- including GAPS and the Body Ecology Diet.
Gut health and cultured foods have been getting a lot of media lately. Kombucha and kefir and sauerkraut seem to be everywhere!
But, Starting out making your own ferments be a bit daunting, which is why we are so happy to have Laura 'I-can-pickle-that' teach us!
