In over twenty years in practice, I’ve seen a lot of diet trends come and go — Atkins, South Beach, Paleo, high-carb, low-carb. Some of them have been really solid and based on how the human body naturally processes food.

Fundamental Food Night - Kimchi Me?
February = Fermentation
We welcome back one of our favorite Valentine's: Denise Petersen, our Kombucha Guru as she brings her delicious Kimchi into our February spotlight.
What is Kimchi?
Kimchi is raw vegetables that become naturally fermented in puree of fruits, garlic, ginger and Korean spices. Kimchi is a living food like wine and cheese; the older it gets, the deeper its taste develops. Kimchi preserves nutrients prebiotics that are already in fresh vegetables while self-generating probiotics. After a day or two in room temperature, you need to keep it cold for that perfect tangy soda taste. All of the elements in Kimchi are beneficial for our body, especially our intestines that feed our digestive tract, blood stream and brains. Kimchi adds flavors to any type of food; meat, potatoes, noodles, rice, bread, tortillas...anything your heart desires! Kimchi is a zero waste and sustainable supplement to our daily diet.
Abstract in the Journal of Medicinal Food: Health functionality of Kimchi includes anticancer, anti-obesity, anti-constipation, colorectal health promotion, probiotic properties, cholesterol reduction, fibrolytic effect, antioxidant and anti-aging properties, brain health promotion, immune promotion, and skin health promotion.
