Intro to GoodFoods #4: The Benefits of Fermented Foods

  • The Light Cellar 6326 Bowness Road Northwest Calgary, AB, T3B 0E5 Canada (map)

Have you been hearing a lot lately on the pros of eating fermented foods? Caught wind of the recent scientific discoveries that point to the inextricable link between gut health and the state of our minds? Gut health and the state of our thyroid? The health of our skin? The list goes on and on. Recent studies indicate that yes indeed, there is a direct link between the state of our digestive system and our overall health.

Adding fermented foods to your daily regimen is one of those fundamental changes that will slowly and irrefutably support increasing your digestive function, thereby improving how you assimilate those foods you eat. They are key players in gut health and in reducing overall inflammation. Fermented Foods are a cornerstone of my practice, and including them in your day's food choices is a critical component to supporting your sweet self to improved health and vitality.


Join local Holistic Nutrition Practitioner Luka Symons for a hand-on workshop on the benefits of fermented foods. We will relay it to human history, we'll find out where to get these foods, and address how to safely start incorporating them in your day's meals. We'll tackle the histamine question, and the lactose concerns. We'll also get our hands dirty making our very own homemade batch of sauerkraut.

In attending this presentation, you will leave armed with knowledge and smarts, notes and recipes and practical ways to incorporate these foods in your every day regime.

*This is the fourth in a five part series on Traditional Foods concepts, based on the principles and ideas of the Weston A. Price Foundation
