Premier kefir maison! Depuis le temps qu’on me parlait de cette boisson aux milles vertus, j’avais très envie de la découvrir. En agissant sur l’intestin à la manière d’un probiotique, le kefir (ici de fruits) renforcerai le système immunitaire et soulagerai même les maladies de peau comme l’acné ou l’eczéma... en tout cas c’est plutôt amusant à confectionner, et de voir au fur et à mesure du temps les bulles se multiplier. #kefir#fermentedfood#healthyfood#diy#zerowaste#sante
I was on Dr Bubb's podcast recently talking about gut health and how it is related the health in the rest of the body. Dr. Marc Bubbs ND, CISSN, CSCS is the Director of Nutrition for the Canadian Men's National Basketball Team, so a lot of the questions on the podcast were around how #guthealth affects not only #brainhealth but sports #performance . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Marc and I discussed my recent paper "Harnessing the Power of Microbiome Assessment Tools as Part of Neuroprotective Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine Interventions" and fleshed out some details that could interest you in you've athletic aspirations. The show was a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy it. Please follow Marc @drbubbs for more podcasts and amazing content. Thank you Marc! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To Kambucha or not to kambucha? That is the question for many people with eczema. I think it depends on where you're at in your healing journey. If you're in the early stages of healing your tired and damaged gut, perhaps don't flood it with fermented foods that are harsh and stimulating - treat your gut like a new born baby, be gentle! Fibre from plant foods will be more than enough for your gut bacteria to thrive on. But you're at the end of your recovery and looking to take you and your immune system to the next level - Booch it up!

I don’t think that when I woke up this morning I knew that I was going to chop all my hair off, but when she made the first cut it felt so right. After the craziness of this month (and my entire summer, really) it only felt natural to shed some layers! I feel lighter, fresher and ready to end grad school with a bang...here’s to a new start ✨
I am absolutely fortunate that i get to travel and be with folks i love so much of the time, but lots of travel means that self-care too often takes a back seat (or gets shoved in the trunk, next to the muddy boots, more precisely). So on the sweet, sublime days that i'm home, working at my regular desk surrounded by my kitties, I love to make a nourishing, self-caring ritual of my meals. Today is a stir fry of kale, brussels sprouts and fermented carrots and daikon with pumpkin seeds and black sesame seeds all tossed with LOTS of my quick-and-dirty peanut sauce (chunky PB, tamari, hot chilis, lime juice). Buen provecho!
Happy Monday and cheers to starting the week off well! I’m currently enjoying a glass of water kefir lightly flavored with tart cherry juice. There are so many great things about this drink - my favorite being that it is so easy you can make it with your eyes closed, it’s extremely inexpensive and it’s the perfect replacement for soda (or pop for fellow west coasters...which one do you say?!). Although it is initially made with sugar, once the fermentation process happens, the bacteria, in this case water kefir grains, consume the sugar and turn it into carbon dioxide. You are then left with a slightly sweet tasting drink with carbonation (depending on how long you ferment) and you’re getting the benefit of good bacteria that line gut without all the sugar (added bonus - my husband will drink it unlike its vinegary cousin, kombucha, which also has many health benefits). Speaking of the research on gut bacteria Dr. Elizabeth Hohmann of the infectious diseases division at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital says, “This is a new frontier of medicine, and many are looking at the gut microbiota as an additional organ system...It's most important to the health of our gastrointestinal system, but may have even more far-reaching effects on our well-being." I will be doing a kefir tutorial soon with the hope of helping you all take baby steps toward better health! #culturedfood#fermentedfood#fermentation#health#healthychoices#kefir#waterkefir#babysteps#rootedandnourished#probiotics#mondaymotivation#cheers#guthealth#goodbacteria#balljar#balljars
Is it silly that I think this is possibly the most beautiful food picture I have taken in a while?
My first successful sourdough bread!!!
I think the cracked crust is gorgeous 🥖 and the various shades of brown—pure delight 😍.
It’s extra beautiful to me, because I know the hours that went into this..... and the failed attempts 🤦🏼♀️that happened before this success🙌🏻
Celebrate your #smallsuccesses every day and know the failures are learning opportunities.
Off the #nomnom this before my kids polish it off! 🤣
👈🏼👈🏼👈🏼 to see their happy faces too
Kimchi is a powerful probiotic food and a staple in Korean food culture. It can help promote good gut bacteria and balance your gut microbiota ✔️Kimchi is rich in probiotics and prebiotics 💚
It can be prepared at home in as little as 3 days. Who’s keen to try making Kimchi?
I make my own sauerkraut because it's really simple, tastes delicious, is so good for you and lasts for ages.😀 I don't use any fancy equipment, either. I use a jar that's big enough to get my fist into✅, and another jar that fits inside the bigger one to act as a weight to ensure the cabbage is submerged✅. And I cover with a tea towel✅. I've been doing this for 4 years and I've never had a moldy or bad batch. People were fermenting long before fancy equipment was invented! I work on the ratio of cabbage:salt 100:1 which means I chop and weigh the cabbage, then divide by 100 to give me my salt weight. I toss it all in a bowl and massage with my hands until it looks opaque and there's water draining in the bottom of the bowl. I add a couple of tbsp of cumin seeds as I love the flavour it gives.😋 Then I spoon into the jar, pressing down firmly with my fist so the juices rise above. I use another jar filled with water to act as a weight, then cover with a tea towel. I usually leave for a week but some people leave for months. Then I'll put a lid on and keep in the fridge.👌 There's a blog post on my website if you have questions or want to see more pics! 👀
100% Sourdough Baguettes .
First attempt at these and I'm beaming !! 😍
I might have gone a lil overboard with baking last night and ended up baking so many breads. It was also about major FOMO on baking since I'll be travelling this entire week.
So now I'm carrying them with me to Delhi today and gonna gift them to my friends 😄 .
So relieved to hear that Red Alert has been withdrawn from Kerala now. Cheers to a great start to this week! 😊
Be kind ! ♥️
There was a time when I was drinking Kombucha tea EVERYDAY! Needless to say I was at my healthiest and strongest 🏃🏻♀️ As an athlete I need to perform at my best in the gym, so I’m going to bump it up again. 📚You’re living during a time where so much research and studies are being done on these things, athletes have so much knowledge at their disposal, learn the secrets and use them. 👍🏻@veryverushka and I enjoyed @drtomskombucha Spirulina and Ginger the other day before a hectic leg session! 🙏🏻| email@example.com for training enquiries
