So what this pre-biotic nonsense all about?  They are raw FOODS: dandelion greens, garlic, onions, leeks, Jerusalem artichokes, asparagus, bananas and wheat bran. At Trout Lily, look for our special label on all the array of  organic pre biotic and probiotic foods and vegetables and fruits  that will nourish the good bacteria!!

fermentedjarsCan the bacteria in your gut explain your mood? Most of us blame our occasional cranky outlook on hormones or the zodiac, but since 2007 scientists have been discovering that our moods could have a lot more to do with our intestinal health than we think!

Bacteria in our gut produce vitamins and enzymes. So what can we do in our everyday life to regulate our mood and cultivate healthy gut bacteria? The answer is simple—Probiotics and Prebiotics.

Take the class and take home your very own jar of ‘Gutsy Goodness’

Better yet – you will start your journey to Good Gut Health!

“Where there is beet soup and sauerkraut, there is plenty.”–Old English Proverb.

This spring, stock your  pantry with  plenty of  traditional German sour cabbage or “Saurkraut”. In this workshop you’ll learn the art and science of making probiotic rich, healthy sauerkraut using local ingredients.

Store bought kraut is often pasteurized, which kills the beneficial bacteria produced during the fermentation process. We’ll work  as a group to make sauerkraut and each participant will take home a large jar to continue fermenting. When the sauerkraut is ready to eat, you’ll have all the supplies you need to make more.

Supplies included in the workshop cost are a 16 oz mason jar, jar lid with airlock, Celtic® unrefined sea salt, and fresh cabbage. 


Get and keep that “good gut” feeling!
