"In science,"good" or "bad" bacteria are called" mutualistic. "It is a" black or white "categorization for a very complex phenomenon. Take the example of Helicobacter Pylori, a bacterium that protects you against cancer of the esophagus but which by the same strain is also responsible for ulcers and stomach cancer. Is it a good or a bad bacteria?
This means that labels like "commensal", "pathogenic", " parasite "... do not really reflect the nature of bacteria, which must be considered according to the state of the body that hosts them, such as hunger, desire, fatigue ..." Did you know that we are only 10% human? Ninety percent of our cells are non-human microbial cells. Since our food influences our microbes, no doubt we are what we eat. ”Meghan Jardine, MS.
We are a community of microorganisms. To maintain these microorganisms in place we have to go through the fermentation process of food. Fermentation is a metabolic process that transforms matter and transforms us. Fermented food is a community of microorganisms . This hands-on fermentation workshop will give you the knowledge and skills to integrate fermented foods into your daily routine. Known to increase nutrients and support a strong immune system, fermentation has been used for centuries as a sustainable way to preserve crops without refrigerators or freezers.
I teach fermentation the same way I learned it from my parents and understood through my studies. We often spend the first hour talking about the concepts of fermentation, and the second hour chopping vegetables and creating our ferments. Each participant will leave with new knowledge, self-confidence and two jars of fermenting vegetables. Examples of what you can do: sauerkraut, fermented whole vegetables (e.g. carrot sticks), fruit kefir (fermented drinks)...
This educational program aims to expand knowledge and awareness around humans, nature and food. Come discover this incredible world by making your own microbial community and sharing ancestral information for the benefit of future generations. We are going to change the world, but one plate at a time!
