Today's podcast episode is one of my favorites. I love food! How many nutrients are in food, how to get the best deals, and how to make the most of the food you buy. Going back about 100 years brings us to an art of cooking and preserving food we have lost in this country of refrigerators and microwaves. I'm not giving up my fridge, but there's definitely something to the way we used to prepare foods. They contain health giving nutrients, enzymes, probiotics, and more that we lose out on because of our fast-food and fast-paced nation.
I interviewed one of my friends and respected colleagues Sarica Cernohous. She is the Queen of Fermentation as our friend Faith Hill says. We talk about so many things in this episode and it shows in the length of the podcast. It's longer than an hour so you may need to watch this in two or three different chunks. But it is definitely worth listening to the whole interview.
