Donna Schwenk has spent years spreading the word on the benefits of cultured foods to people through her blog, word of mouth and this outstanding book. She gives her own personal experiences as well as those of others to explain why adding cultured foods to your diet can help with digestive and health issues. She takes the time to make it simple enough for even someone such as myself, who has never heard about integrating cultured foods into my diet, can comprehend her reasoning and see the value of exploring further.
The three basic items she talks about are Kefir, which she describes and tells how you can ferment your own, Kombucha, a cultured tea said to be good for joint pain (Something I can state it does help with as I personally have suffered with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis for years), aiding in the healing of ulcers and headaches just to name a few, and finally there are cultured vitamins, which when following correct procedure can enhance not only the flavors but influence the addition of probiotics, good enzymes and the vitamins you are looking for in your vegetables.
Just to ensure that this is a fantastic book Ms. Schwenk has included over 130 recipes to help you get you started with cultured foods. Their are many to curb your and your family's sweet tooth, beverages to enjoy as you help your system work better for you and dressings for those salads I so love. There are also main course and breakfast dish recipes. You can not walk away from this book without coming to an understanding of what cultured foods are and what they can do for you.
