I had no idea just exactly what I was making when I created this recipe several years ago. I just thought the combination tasted good and seemed to give me spectacular results during cold and flu season, so I kept making them and giving them to my family. Fast forward a few years later and one of the greatest discoveries I have found lies in the jar. I have been learning a lot about the immune system and what is actually going on inside of us. Our guts comprise at least 80% of our immune system and if your gut is healthy, guess what? Your immune system is too! Probiotic cultured foods are an important key but so is something else. Prebiotics are my new frontier of discovery, and all the things I am learning are blowing my mind.
All the forces in the world are not so powerful as wisdom that has been discovered by someone who needs it.
What are prebiotics?
Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching
I have some type of prebiotic every day now and what is so surprising is that this recipe has 4 prebiotics in it. I had no idea when I was making this that it was doing more than just giving me probiotics. It was also feeding the bacteria as well. No wonder it’s so effective at keeping colds and flus at bay – it’s all the prebiotics in this recipe that make it super powerful! I am making all sorts of new recipes with tons of prebiotics and I sell a prebiotic too, in the product Prebio Plus. If you can’t eat these foods, you can add a scoop of the prebiotic Prebio Plus and it will make a world of difference. You will notice it after the first dose. Your stomach might start to gurgle and that’s the bacteria having a feast. You can put this prebiotic in hot or cold foods, so I add a little bit to my tea every morning and I also feed it to my kefir grains, and oh my, they love it. They will grow like crazy and it will also help you make your kefir creamy again after it has separated. Add a small amount of Prebio Plus, shake up the jar, put it in the refrigerator, and the next day your kefir is creamy again. Bacteria need food, too, and when you give them what they need, you will feel it in many ways. You’ll feel better, lighter, elimination will be easier and more frequent, and flus and colds will be a thing of the past.
I’m devoting an entire chapter in my new book to prebiotics, and I can’t wait to share with you more of the things I have learned. They’re every bit as powerful as probiotics. It’s exciting stuff. I’m still growing and learning, and I love that I was already making recipes with prebiotics without realizing it. Eat your cultured foods and add prebiotics, too, and your gut bacteria can change overnight. This recipe has everything you need to accomplish the task. I just made a new jar myself! I really do love bacteria – somebody has to! They’ve taught me so many things and continue to do so. They’ve become my master teachers.
