Fermented foods, your health and well-being
I have just been on a one day fermentation course which was brilliant: it was fun and all the things we produced were very tasty and not too weird!
humble opinion long term health is achieved by long term healthy eating in just the same way that illness and poor health is often caused by long term unhealthy eating
But as Katie Venner says (the lady who holds the course) there is no point in trying to eat healthy food and drink if you don’t enjoy it. So; as it was very tasty and interesting food achieved with relatively simple methods; I’m fairly enthused and my cultures and ‘scoby’s’ are sitting on my boiler and kitchen counter top doing their thing as I write. At the end of the day you go home with all the cultures necessary to get started.
I think the benefits of it for me will be a better and calmer gut and I imagine that for people with allergies it might have helpful long term effects as your body will be absorbing the nutrients in the food that that you give it resulting in the benefits of a balanced body...and not an upset one that throws tantrums about things it’s sensitive to. Katie’s husband reckons that his joints are not so stiff and he has less pain.
