Apple Cider Kefir: A Probiotic Recipe!

This kefir is made from apple cider and starter. A sweet and sour concoction that is fizzy like champagne …. pure effervescence! The best part is also rich in diverse, potent probiotic strains. The friendly flora within act as a digestive aid to keep the gut in good shape. More benefits.

Looking for an easy, affordable way to get your probiotic dose? This might be for you. Especially if you have an issue with your gut (i.e. bloating, constipation) or yeast/bacterial overgrowth (i.e., Candida, GBS+). 

No matter what, a glass of juice kefir is a way to kick start a day and keep those healthy internal gut bugs in balance.

Short-Term Traditional Pickles Recipe

Short-Term Traditional Pickle Recipe

by Tara Carpenter, NC.

In Vermont, pickling cucumbers grow on the vine from July to mid-September. This rush of cucumbers inspired me to find a recipe for a traditional made pickle; one that stood the test of time and worthy of being passed down from one generation to the next. Most of all, I was interested in a recipe that did not use vinegar or canning methods (pasteurization) to keep the natural integrity of cucumbers alive and crisp.  

After playing with various recipes, my sister-in-law pulled a pickle from her crock one summer day; the taste had the classic deli pickle firmness and was raw!! With no vinegar or heat involved.

Hemp Milk Kefir: Recipe

Hemp milk kefir has a life of its own and needs a good amount of attention. This isn’t the kind of kefir that you make right before going on vacation or make and push to the back of refrigerator. This is the queen of kefir, the oh so spoiled one.

The good news is that hemp kefir will pay you back in many ways with its bubbly probiotic aliveness and the right touch of sweetness.

Soaking Whole Grains: A Traditional Recipe

Soaking Whole Grains: A Traditional Recipe

Written by Tara Carpenter, NC.

Serving customized cooking, consultations, and meal plans.

Whole grains have been a principal food for thousands of years and are close to being a nutritionally complete food as they are rich in amino acids, carbohydrates, fiber, minerals, vitamins, and fat.

This ancient food strengthens the body with a warm, slow burning kind of energy and grain tastes pretty good too! We top ours with cultured butter, pesto, and sprinkling of hemp seeds. 

Unfortunately, grains also contain enzyme inhibitors and toxins – such as phytates, tannins, and goitrogens – that can harm the body, especially the lining of the digestive tract; extending from mouth to the anus.
