Sick of sodas, sugary juices and chemical laden condiments dominating your diet? Struggling with autoimmune symptoms, allergies or feeling out of balance? Ready to make the switch to “beverages with benefits” but worried buying them will break your food budget? Maybe you are ready to try them at home but feel daunted by the prospect of potentially messing it up and harming your family? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you!
Beneficial bacteria (aka probiotics) play a crucial role in our health including supporting systemic wellness, digestive system health and proper functioning of the immune system. So how did ancients get beneficial bacteria into their diet if they didn’t have probiotic pills? Fermented drinks aka “Nature’s Sodas”! High in antioxidants, fermented beverages offer a plethora of benefits and may play a role in mitigating the risk of certain cancers as well as reducing overall inflammation in the body. When we consider that our bodies both inside and out, as well as every surface of the planet is covered in bacteria, we begin to understand how vital a role these foods play in our well being.
They also happen to be versatile, flavorful, easy to make and cost a fraction of what you would pay for them in the grocery store. Join the Kombucha Mamma, Hannah Crum, as she guides you on a tasty adventure that will not only tantalize the senses but also inform you of the benefits of traditionally cultured drinks. Learn just how easy and safe it is to make them at home, right on your counter (just like great-grandma used to do!) so that you and your family can begin reaping their benefits right away.
Sample Kombucha, water kefir, milk kefir and jun and see for yourself how these zippy culinary companions make the body feel. Hannah will answer all of your fermentation questions while sharing her tips gleaned from over 10 years of homebrewing in this mouthwatering workshop. Plus you’ll learn simple techniques for making healthy, bubbly beverages at home easily in your own kitchen so that you, and your family, can take advantage of their many benefits for pennies a serving.
