Were you a breastfed baby? Not me. I also grew up eating tons of refined sugars and grains. Between a SAD (Standard American Diet) during childhood, chlorinated and fluoridated municipal drinking water, and various rounds of antibiotics, I’m fairly certain that I suffered from gut dysbiosis — the unhealthy balance of good and bad bacteria and yeasts in the gut. Strange as it may sound, creating a healthy balance of gut flora can actually have a HUGE impact on your overall health.
One of the KEY ways we can improve gut health is by incorporating more fermented, living foods into our diets. Last week, I hosted a giveaway for 3 starter cultures from Cultures For Health. Today, I get to announce the lucky winner AND share a coupon with the rest of you!
First, let me announce the WINNER. Congratulations go to Kerrie Knox. Kerrie, please contact me within 48 hours with your mailing address and your choice of 3 starter cultures.
Now, for the COUPON!
When you click on the link above, you’ll be taken to the Cultures For Health website where you can check out the HUGE selection of various starter cultures. Did you know you can culture SOME varieties of yogurt on your counter top at room temperature — no special equipment needed? Cultures For Health carries everything from kefir grains to kombucha SCOBYs. So, have it!
The coupon expires March 14th, so hurry!
