Recipes from Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Meals that Heal by Lenna Knowlton. www.ntmealsthatheal.com
As most of you know we are following the principles of www.westonaprice.org for nutrition. So with the abundance of veggies from my garden I have been making alot of lacto fermented foods. Above is what I did yesterday.
Lacto-fermentation happens when the starches and sugars in vegetables and fruit convert to lactic acid by a friendly lactic-acid producing bacteria.
Benefits of lacto fermented foods are as follows:
- aids in digestion
- Adds excellent probiotics and digestive enzymes to your gut health.
- The vitamins are increased during fermenting, making them more available to the body to utilize.
- keeps you regular :o)
- It has antibiotic properties as well as anticarcinogenic
