Making your own fermented foods will not only dramatically increase your health, but also save you lots of money!
Why spend $4 for a fancy, organic Kombucha drink at the store if you can make a gallon of it at home for around $1?
You can make a gorgeous-looking, perfect-tasting loaf of fresh European style bread for mere cents instead of buying a loaf for $6.
Why spend $6 for a jar of organic sauerkraut if you can make a jar for the cost of a cabbage and a little salt?
Making your own greek yogurt saves you more than double the price what you would buy it for at the store.
And how about the freshness and higher quality of making your own ferments, let alone you can't even find some of these at stores (beet kvass, anyone?).

Some health benefits of fermented foods:
* They preserve nutrients in food and break the food down to a more digestible form. A proper balance of gut bacteria and enough digestive enzymes helps you absorb more of the nutrients in the foods you eat.
* Fermented foods are potent detoxifiers and contain much higher levels of probiotics than probiotic supplements, making them ideal for optimizing your gut flora. In addition to helping break down andeliminate heavy metals and other toxins from your body, beneficial gut bacteria perform a number of surprising functions, including:
* They improve and strengthen the immune system.
My students are loving this course! Here are some testimonials:
"Corina does an amazing job teaching this class. A picture may be worth a thousand words but a video is better yet. Kudos to Corina, and her husband filming, for creating a fun and informative class. It shows what things look like in each stage of the process, and Corina is great at explaining each step in great detail. It was well worth the money to learn the proper way to do fermenting and not waste valuable materials and time experimenting." - Pete S.
"Loved doing this course. I have wanted to learn how to get more live and healthful foods in my body. I found the course to be easy to navigate and with valuable information. Good support and tasty results!" - Michael S.
"The No-Knead Bread is absolutely delicious, and the kids love to help make it! Corina makes the fermentation workshop so easy to navigate with her pdf and video instructions for all five recipes. The workshop's facebook group provides even more support as well as a sense of camaraderie, which boosts my confidence as I make these recipes for the first time. It feels terrific to expand the scope of my cooking. I can't wait to eat the sauerkraut which led me here in the first place!" - Allison S.
"To be honest, I thought that fermentation sounded a little bit unappetizing and very difficult. My daughter loves those kombucha drinks you get at the store, but they're outrageously expensive and contain heaven knows what. So I decided that in defense of my budget, I'd take this course and learn how to make kombucha. Well, I was STUNNED at the wide variety of foods you can preserve this way. I have been making yogurt for quite some time, but all the rest of it was new to me. And the big shock: it looks incredibly easy! The instructor is positively charming and makes the whole thing look like great fun. I can't wait to get started! I strongly recommend this course to anyone interested in saving money, traditional foods, and good health." - Daisy L.
