From kimchi to kraut, kombucha to pickles—go to a farmers market just about anywhere and you will find ferments. Fermented foods are trending, thankfully! People are realizing the benefits they offer and have offered around the globe for hundreds and thousands of years! Ferments boost the immune system, protect against disease, and aid digestion.
Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, today goes over principle #5 of the Wise Traditions diet: how all traditional diets are high in enzymes and beneficial bacteria. She explains what fermented foods are, how they are prepared, and how we can incorporate them into our diet today. Among a number of topics, she discusses how to introduce them to our children, is there such a thing as too many ferments in the diet, how to choose the best kombucha, and which fermented foods are enjoyed in various regions of the world.
