Now that the Easter Bunny has gone into hiding again till next year, it's time to clean up our gut from the calamitous forage into white sugar's grip! Ooh! Like that! Let's add some good ole' probiotics and enzymes to our digestive track to eat up what the Easter Bunny left behind.
Too many candies and sweets can really wreck havoc with our immune system, starting with our intestinal tract that, by this time, is screaming for some assistance! Give it some helpful kefir (pronounced ke-feer) to do the trick. A good yogurt is also a an option, as is any fermented unpasteurized drinks (like kombucha) or fermented veggies or chutneys. These products eat up sugar fast than you can chow down on a 12 oz. chocolate duck!
"Nourishing Traditions" has many recipes for fermenting vegetables, fruits, and chutneys, and even drinks. If that just sounds like too much work after cooking for an army of people this weekend, most health food stores carry an array of fermented products. Try to keep it organic with few additives, and your system should be up and running....purring, in fact, in no time!
