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.

When it comes to vinegar, you either love it or hate it and there's no question how we feel about the addictive, sweet-tart stuff that flavors everything from pickles and salad dressings to cocktails and desserts.
Vinegar — the word comes from the French vin aigre, meaning sour wine — tantalizes us with its vigorous pungency, a reminder of its prime importance as a food preservative since the dawn of human history.
We've known vinegar as long as we've known wine, using it as a food, flavoring and even folk medicine. It's made from the fermented juices of virtually any plant material, including rice, grain and fruit, and enjoys a distinguished place in the ongoing, ever-changing story of food. We think it deserves every minute in the spotlight.
VomFass of Naples returns to the spotlight.
After last week’s “Wellness Wednesday,” where we talked about strategies for preventing dementia, I had the most enlightening conversation with a young woman who happens to have a great deal of experience working with dementia patients.
