MTHFR and pregnancy

Most people don't realize the difference between folic acid and folate, since they believe they are both 'the same vitamin.'

For the Love of Fermented Foods

[Guest blog post from Ruth Almon of Ruth's Real Food.]



The first time I heard that people from traditional cultures eat a small amount of fermented foods at each meal, the information passed right by me. That’s fine for them, but I wasn’t about to start eating kimchi and sauerkraut with every meal.

1. Let food be thy medicine – Eat whole, real, unprocessed foods. As Micheal Pollan says “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Eating as much of your foods in their raw, whole, unprocessed, organic state as possible is critical.
