Following her book Cultured Food for Life (2013), Donna returns to help us take the next steps in transforming our kitchens and our health.
Cultured Food for Health explores the science behind the benefits of cultured foods and shows how incorporating 'The Trilogy' - ­ kefir, kombucha and cultured vegetables - ­into our diet creates more powerful healing effects than any one of these foods alone, as the different types of probiotic bacteria work together to create a healthy gut and a truly healthy life. Donna explains how cultured foods can be used to address specific ailments ­­- from IBS and diabetes to allergies, colds and flu - and teaches us, step by step, how to prepare these probiotic foods and easily incorporate them into a daily routine. In a positive and welcoming voice, she answers the sorts of questions a cultured-food novice is likely to have (yes, it's really all right to let vegetables ferment on the worktop for three days!) and offers troubleshooting tips and clear instructions to support even the most uncertain home cook. By sharing her own story as well as real-life stories from members of her online community, she takes the fear out of fermentation so that all of us can experience the energy, well-being and joy available to us when our bodies are working the way they're meant to. Includes a vivid color insert with images for guidance and inspiration.

A wonderful book; Cultured food for Health by Donna Schwenk. Donna writes of her own and her daughter’s healing story by using , ”The Trilogy” of fermented foods; keffir, kombucha and fermented vegetables in their daily diet. She also talks about prebiotics – foods that feed the helper gut bugs that you are advised to include a lot of in your diet. There is a lot of information on what they are, how to use them with recipes and a lot of information on many conditions and illnesses that these may help with, and how they may be helping with recovery...
