Fermentation and Fiscal Fitness
Hello! How's your gut treating you today? Pertinent question as since I've last posted, I've become much more involved in the Traditional Foods community. Specifically, insofar as today's post is concerned, with fermentation.
A couple of things to know about fermentation. First of all, properly fermented foods are essential to establishing that enviable balance of gut flora to which many of us aspire. (My dogs are pooping like rock stars these days, 'nuff said.) Second, either you've got to learn to do it yourself in your own kitchen or have the budget to hire someone to do it for you. It's that important. Buying prepared fermented foods from the store really does not cut the mustard.
So there you have it. You want the result, it's one more thing you've got to learn to do for yourself. Like cooking dinner, exercising, sleeping, and taking the occasional shower. That said, one might think that the biggest obstacle in someone's path to success would be the time element. "Jeez, something else to do?" one might think. "But I'm overextended already!"
Surprisingly, from what I have been able to observe by hanging out in the community, that is not the case.
