Last weekend, we had the opportunity to spend time with Donna Gates…

We asked her if she’d want to share her knowledge of cultured vegetables with us for an episode or two.

Today, is part one of a two or possibly three part show on how to make cultured vegetables.

We had a lot of fun filming Donna and Gina LaVerde (a body ecology teacher) as they shared with us as much as they could in the time we had.

Here’s part one, we really enjoyed it, so I’m sure you will too…

UPDATE: Here’s a note from Donna about keeping everything clean!

“I want to express how important it is to use very clean utensils bowls and jars when fermenting. If you were to use a utensil or jar that was not clean and contained a pathogenic bacteria, for example, then the good bacteria would have to conquer them first before they can focus on fermenting the vegetables.

“If you the bacteria are not as strong as the pathogen… they’ll lose the battle and you’ll have a batch of veggies that are spoiled and NOT FERMENTED. They will taste and smell awful and the color will be brown and
grey…not colorful and beautiful.

“So yes, if you cough wash your hands which I did immediately :-)”

Live Awesome!

He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.
