The blow from words can hit harder than a blow from a fist and recovery time for emotions can be longer than physical injuries. On the contrast, we also know the power of someone saying kind words and giving encouragement. But we rarely think about the words we are speaking […]

Fermented Red Cabbage – Probiotic Recipe

Turn Red Cabbage into a Probiotic! Leda Lum is one of my favorite youtubers! I decided to copy her and ferment my own vegetables, starting with red cabbage.
