It’s neither here nor there whether our moods have evolved to our detriment, but study after study has shown that there is a parallel between the rise in disorders like ADHD, anxiety and depression and the fall of the number of beneficial bacteria in our guts. Fermented foods have been found to supply the types of bacteria that act as “the clean up crew” to toxins and harmful organisms in our bodies by attracting them and then literally carrying them out of your gut in your waste.
Making fermented foods takes less time than cooking dinner, and in 7-10 days you (your gut and your disposition) got yourself a real treat. Check out different websites on fermenting like this one from The Nourished Kitchen (http://bit.ly/19NN6Gn) : all you need is a couple of jars and some good sea salt. Get creative, add your own twist to the standards, like my Purple Kimchi here.
