Did you know that the health of your gut not only influences your digestive function but also your weight, your sleep, your mood, your immune system function, and practically the health of your whole body?
A gut-healthy diet should include some fermented probiotic foods that may replenish the friendly bacteria that live in our gut. Fermented foods and drinks have been used by traditional cultures for hundreds of years but we’ve sadly lost the art of fermenting. We all know that aged cheeses and yogurt are made using a bacterial culture but have you heard of kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut and kimchi? They are all different types of fermented/cultured foods and drinks, originating from different parts of the world. They are delicious and teaming with beneficial bacteria and yeasts that may help maintain a healthy composition of gut bacteria, hence influencing our overall health.
If you want to learn how to make some of these traditional foods, come along to a small and fun workshop in Bracknell with a BANT registered nutritionist, where you’ll learn how you can make your own delicious probiotic food and drink, so you can start looking after your gut health in a very natural way. You will learn about the benefits of fermented foods, you’ll be able to taste some ready-made foods and drinks. You’ll also get recipes (for how to make and use these foods and drinks) and a batch you made, along with a starter culture, to start your own batch at home.
The three workshops will take place in Bracknell (nr. Warfield) on Sunday mornings 10.30am to 12.30pm. Come to one or all three workshops.
Kombucha & kimchi – Sunday 29th April
Sauerkraut & water kefir – Sunday 6th May
Yogurt & kefir – Sunday 13th May
