LeBountiful

EMOTIONAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: LeBountiful is an aid to our thinking clearly about money issues and lessens the stress in these areas. One of the most outstanding effects of this blend is the feeling of abundance that it creates in our minds and spirits. It simply moderates, or evaporates altogether, any feeling that there is never going to be enough and that there is certainly not enough for everybody to have what they think they need. The absence of these fearful feelings helps us eliminate even the slightest tendencies to greed and selfishness.

Zanthoxylum The aromatic influence of zanthoxylum helps us to accept that we, in ourselves, are enough and that what we can do is enough. We are not broken or damaged and no one needs to "fix" or "heal" us. This attitude is acceptance of ourselves, not apathy or lack of direction and inner drive. We will know more clearly what we need to be doing and what direction we need to be going in. This place of peace and acceptance is created by finally understanding that we are loved for who we are, not for what we know or the things we do.

Fermenting

So, Why Ferment?

1. Fermented foods and drinks actually increase the good, live, healthy nutrients within the food or drink (probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, minerals). And, with its ability to improve the good bacteria (or flora) in your gut, reduce the bad bacteria, aid digestion and improve immunity - you can't help but wonder why everyone isn't doing it!

2. Fermented foods are an excellent way to make and preserve food. Many foods made at home last only days in the refrigerator but fermented foods last for months - without losing nutrients.

3. Fermented foods are inexpensive! Go to any health food store or health food section of your grocery store and you will probably experience a little sticker shock. Why is healthy food so expensive? Fermented foods are one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself yet costs only a fragment of what healthy foods cost in a store. 

How Will I Incorporate Fermented Foods Into My Diet?

The many ways to add fermented foods to your diet are limitless.

1. My family will frequently replace any side dish with fermented veggies. The wonderful flavors add to any meal.

2. Simple unseasoned, homemade sauerkraut is the perfect thing to give someone with a belly ache. Any fermented food will have the good bacteria necessary to assist in most digestive discomfort. Long gone are the antacids and yucky pink medicines in our house. It works better than anything medical or traditional that we've tried, even probiotic pills. Sounds weird, but it's true.

3. Used to be that only my husband liked sauerkraut enough to put it on hot dogs or hamburgers. Now we all do, as long as it's home fermented.

What Is Fermenting?

In simplest terms, Fermenting is a process called lacto-fermentation where natural bacteria feed on the sugars and starches within a food to create lactic acid. That doesn't mean a lot to me... what means a lot to me is...

This process creates powerful probiotics and enzymes, along with other beneficial vitamins and minerals in my foods!

These probiotics and enzymes improve digestion and many of the illnesses pertaining to our digestion. With an estimated 80% of our immune system existing within our digestive system, fermented foods have the power to improve our health overall.

Fermenting Is For Everyone!

Many perceive fermented foods to be odd or unusual, certainly not something normal everyday people do. But fermenting has been a way of life throughout history and still remains a staple in many countries.

Sadly, our modern diets are filled with over-cooked, processed foods. What once was alive and full of nutrients is now depleted and empty, leaving our bodies starving for the quality nutrition that brings about wonderful health.

Instead of individual families or groups maintaining responsibility for the creation of rich, alive with nutrients food - our society mass produces and markets food for a society too busy to want to do it themselves. Our diets are filled with dead, homogenized, pasteurized, processed, over cooked, chemically treated food with barely a good bacteria or enzyme still existing.

No wonder our western society battles a wide range of digestive maladies from chronic heartburn to IBS to colitis to crohns disease. Eating the way we do, our bodies have been depleted and left with few resources to battle illness when it sets in.

When I was growing up my mom believed a big pile of hot, soggy spinach was the healthy option for her family. She had no idea that she had killed off most of the nutrients and all of the enzymes to help us absorb what nutrients were remaining. Now we are more aware of the fact that those dark leafy greens are most nutritious raw and fresh and still full of LIFE.

If you are what you eat - I want to eat LIVING, HEALTHY, FRESH nutrients!

4. We absolutely love putting our spicy cauliflower on pizza! It adds such an incredible zing! Best pizza we've ever had.

5. Our dilly carrots are perfect in a salad and the tangy rhubarb is delicious

6. All our fermented items are delicious enough to snack on any time of the day!
