I Want to Get Cultured —Where Do I Start?


I Want to Get Cultured —Where Do I Start?

Do you want to change your life and feel better? Here’s the truth. I have tons of resources to help you. You can find everything you need on my site to get started, and that information is free. I have other resources that I sell to expand and help you grow, but everything you need to get started and get well is right here at your fingertips – and it’s free. Let me show you where you can find it, and let’s get you well – deal?

Passion Kombucha

It’s not hard, it’s just new

I’m trying with all my heart to help you and honestly, I’ll keep trying to think of more ways to make this easy and accessible. I’m afraid you think it’s too hard. I promise you it’s not, it’s just new to you and I’m here if you need help. I worked out all the kinks and got rid of all the crazy intense stuff other people tell you that you must do, cause quite frankly, I’ve been doing this fifteen years and I’m really good at it. Quit listening to people who make this hard, because it’s not. They’re just trying to scare you and create blogs that drive traffic to their site. I’m never going to tell you to do something I don’t do. I want my site to be the place where you can learn easily. I no longer put ads on my site because they clog up my message and make it hard for you. There’s got to be a better way than having ads everywhere. So this is what I believe. If I bring value to your life, then it always finds a way to come back to me. What you put out is what you get back. We all win!

Kefir and Kombucha

Resistance is futile

Hang out with me, read my blogs and Facebook posts, and I’ll convince you sooner or later – it’s just inevitable. I believe in the power of these foods to heal you and make you well because I’ve lived it. I hope I haunt your dreams, and I hope cultured foods start popping up everywhere in your line of sight, and then maybe you will say . . . “Okay, resistance is futile, I’m ready.” And then hang on to your hat cause your life is gonna change. Wellness is so crazy addictive, you’ll be hooked on the best drug ever.

It's all here for you and always has been. Maybe you just didn't realize it. Okay, that's all I can think of at the moment and now I'm kind of tired after looking at all of this. When in heaven's name did I do all this? It didn't feel so much like work, it just felt like something I couldn't stop myself from doing. There's always more to come. I can't stop until everybody knows what cultured foods can do.  Somebody had to love bacteria, and I'm so thankful they chose to love me back. Now they're choosing you, all 100 trillion of these microbes that inhabit the body known as you. Can you hear them calling you? Feed them, nurture them, and watch them change your life.

Welcome to the world of bacteria . . . we've been waiting for you.

  1. I have finally mastered kombutcha and kefir thanks to the information from your site. I even made kefir cream cheese which is really quite simple. Now I don’t buy store bought cream cheese with all the questionable ingredients. Donna keep up the good work

  2. Hi. I’m trying to learn all I can and really want it to seem not too complicated to add into real life. I am definitely a visual, take you by the hand and do it with me kind of learner. I was excited to see you said you have free videos and pictures for making kefir, kombucha, and cultured veggies. However, when you click on them it takes you to a page where when you click to watch the video says you have to be a member. Can you help me find the free videos you referenced? Thanks.

    • Hi Karin, sorry about that! It looks like the kefir video linked to our membership site. I got it fixed now, so you should be able to watch it. The other two videos, kombucha and cultured veggies are working correctly.

  3. Thank you for making your information free, easy to understand, and your blog ad free! I have learnt a lot. You’re right, other sources can make cultured foods look scary but you make it look like a normal, simple part of every day life! Thank you! !

  4. I have cultured vegetables, using whey from kefir cultured milk. I have been diagnosed with SIBO – should they still be safe? Not drinking much fermented milk at present because the GI doctor said I have almost no lactase.

  5. What is the recipe of the cultured food shown at the beginning of this blog 1/31/16? It has tomatoes?, basil, cinnamon stick, it looks delish.
