We are what we eat and we are learning that lesson in so many ways. Research shows that the microbes living in and on us have a direct link to our brains ultimately affecting our cravings and our mental health. We will explore some of these microbes and their effects on the body, some of the research being done and learn how to best feed them and us. We'll make teas, ferments, yogurt, sourdough starters and other foods that improve your health and your mood. We'll bake whole grain breads and make some simple cheeses. Come prepared to take home examples from each day!
