Description

"For optimum probiotic nutrition, it's time to say goodbye to supplements and pills and to bring all-natural, all-delicious, real-food probiotic (and prebiotic) meals into your life. Mainstream doctors and nutritionists firmly agree that probiotics are essential for everyday health and nutrition. Probiotics add "good bacteria" to the human gut. They work by crowding out "bad bacteria" and by fostering the absorption of nutrients through the intestinal walls. Everyone needs probiotics, just as they also need prebiotics, which make probiotics work. Probiotics also aid in the relief of chronic health issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as occasional belly discomfort, and are recommended for a growing range of other uses, like the management of type 2 diabetes. They are generally agreed to have anti-inflammatory properties, too. Kelli Foster's The Probiotic Kitchen makes probiotic cooking easier and tastier than it's ever been before. As they do with vitamins and minerals, doctors recommend naturally occurring probiotics in real food over artificial supplements. In earlier books on the subject, almost all of the probiotic foods were fermented things like pickles, kimchi, kombucha, and the like. But recent discoveries have greatly expanded the range of foods that now are known to be rich in probiotics. These include cheeses, green peas, and even chocolate, among many others. Foster's enticing and reliable book covers fermented foods, to be sure, but also adds loads of recipes for more familiar and more versatile ingredients-more than 100 recipes in all, each one as delectable as the next"-- Provided by publisher.
