Fermenting Carrots with Turmeric

201512112150531

Fermentation is natures way of upgrading your ordinary eats to nutrition dense super foods!
We all know about the importance of a healthy gut and making sure we have a diverse array of gut microbes can help with a whole host of health concerns.
Everyone can make their own healthy bacteria at home, it’s so simple and cheap!
Now It’s bit colder (writing this from London town) it can take a little bit longer than in summer but this recipe should be ready in 10-14 days.
Just taste (with a wooden spoon) as you go along and don’t forget to burp your little baby once a day or once every other day.

Turmeric Latte

As the winter nights draw closer bring in some warmth and sunshine with this Turmeric latte!
The spice turmeric contains a super powerful pigment called curcumin.
It’s one of the most powerful antioxidants found and it comes with strong anti-inflammatory action so really good for auto-immune disorders.
Researchers  has also found it has anti-carcinogenic action so may protect the body against cancer.
The only problem is it’s not easily absorbed by the body, so to boost absorption I blend it  in warm milk and also add some black pepper.
