Recipe of the Week
I love the taste of fermented vegetables. I put it on my salads or have it on the side with my breakfast of eggs and vegetables. I love it on toast with avocado the most, its kind of like a reuben sandwich only healthier! As much as i love this versatile and easy to make food it also has an incredible history as well as health benefits that are pretty incredible.
Keep in mind refrigerators have not been around forever and people had to do something to preserve the food for another day without it going rotten. Fermenting was the perfect solution. In fact the earliest record of fermented food was about 6000 BC. Now keep in mind this includes dairy products (among other things) but today I want to just focus on the veggies!
The science end is what I find even more interesting. Did you know that there is ten times more bacteria than cells in our bodies?! Now not all bacteria is bad. In fact there is good bacteria in our bodies and it breaks down the bad bacteria, harmful substances from the environment and spent substances that our bodies create and need to dispose of.
Now fermented foods are good bacteria or otherwise known as probiotics. Let me explain what this word means. Most of us know what an antibiotic is so lets break down the word. “Anti” mean against, “Biotic” means life, therefore Anti-Biotic means against life. What this means in a nutshell is that antibiotics not only wipe out the bad bacteria but also the good bacteria as well. Now if we break down the word Probiotic we have “Pro” which means for and “Biotic” which again means life and therefore you have pro life!
Probiotics help to promote a healthy metabolism, improve the immune system, reduce inflammation in the gut, normalize cholesterol, digest food, aid in pancreatic functioning because they are considered already broken down by the fermentation process which is great for diabetics. They also regulate fat absorption, lowers the risk of cancer, can improve your mood due to gut health, can help with acne, yeast/candida, which in turn can also help people with autism, schizophrenia, depression, and attention deficit disorders.
In many countries the sanitation is very poor and eating fermented foods can actually protect people from foodborne illnesses. In fact, in the 1950’s sauerkraut (which is a fermented cabbage) was effective in killing the bacteria caused by cholera and typhoid.
Fermentation is kind of like a pre-digested food because bacteria are present and the bacteria begins to break down the sugars and starches in the food. In fact fermented food is so strong that a single serving of fermented food can contain trillions of probiotics which his is equivalent to a whole bottle of expensive over the counter probiotic capsules! On top of all this greatness it is super simple to make. It doesn't get much better than that!

Naturopathic Coach & Neurotherapist
How could eating healthy taste so delicious and be this easy to create? Dr. Sharrie has been teaching her clients to eat 80% raw since 1993 with great success. She has always had a passion and love for creating beautiful dishes for her family and friends. In 2014, Dr. Sharrie was encouraged by her friends and clients to create this cookbook so the recipes could be shared with everyone. This book is designed for the newbies as well as the masters. Most recipes require minimal ingredients with very little prep time. Dr. Sharrie believes that food should be pleasing to the eye, super fast and easy to make with only a few ingredients and most of all amazing to the pallet. Recipes should not require bizarre ingredients that you need to hunt in specialty stores to acquire. Dr. Sharrie believes that combining just a few ingredients in their whole form not only provides the body with excellent nutritional value and enzymes but also creates a passion for healthy food.
