Overview

Fermented foods have shown to be beneficial for a number of health conditions including candida overgrowth, IBS and digestive difficulties, sugar/carb cravings, and other inflammatory disorders. What’s more, science is starting to show that our modern lifestyle of completely eschewing bacteria via pasteurized foods, hand sanitizers, disinfectants, and antibiotics is actually making us more, not less, susceptible to illness and allergies. Regular inclusion of fermented foods in the diet naturally combats bad bacteria and strengthens the immune system. Fermented Foods for Health includes meal plans of fermented foods for addressing specific ailments and repairing the metabolism. Seventy-five delicious recipes show readers how to ferment everything from meats to vegetables, fruits, and dairy—and how to utilize each of them for specific health benefits such as balancing the body's PH, increasing enzyme production, and strengthening immunity.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Though there are many books devoted to the process of fermentation, Rawlings (Foods That Fight Fibromyalgia) takes it one step further here by explaining how the pasteurization and ultraprocessing prevalent in Western diets have taken a toll on general health. The author includes chapters on meal plans and how to change eating patterns, as well as 75 recipes for fermenting a variety of foods. She also describes different diseases that may be alleviated through eating fermented foods. Bright photos and simple tips on storage and substitutions give readers a preview into creative foods that are a boon not only to the taste buds but to overall health as well. VERDICT Rawlings has produced more than a mere cookbook, she has created a solid volume of science and cookery that offers a wealth of information for those looking to improve their health." — Library Journal
