How to Naturally Culture Vegetables | Basic Instructions for Fermenting Vegetables

June 20, 2013

Fermenting not only preserves food but also enhances the nutrient content. The action of the culture organisms makes the minerals in cultured foods more readily available to the body. During the fermenting process the bacteria also produce B vitamins and enzymes that are beneficial for digestion.

Culturing or fermenting a food involves the chemical process of breaking a complicated substance down into simpler parts, usually with the help of bacteria, yeasts, or fungi. Fermented food is considered a live food and the culturing process continues during storage to enhance the food’s nutrient content. All cultured vegetables have a natural tart flavor as the sugars and carbohydrates have been broken down and used up in the process. Cultured vegetables are a great option for low-carbohydrate diets.

How to Use Kefir as Sourdough

Kefir and sourdough have a lot in common. Both are cultured foods. Both improve the nutritional value of whatever they are culturing (milk, flour, sweet water). Both contain yeast, bacteria, and acids.

So why not use kefir in the same manner as a sourdough starter: to leaven and ferment your bread?

12 Paradoxical Reasons Why Creative Limitations Are Not Limiting – re:DESIGN and reignite your business.

June 19, 2013

We all think we would enjoy being able to do as we please — especially when it comes to creativity. Imagine being able to create without any obstacles or boundaries. An unlimited budget would be great too! Or at least we think so.

We tend to think that the ideal creative situation would be one which has open-ended parameters and where our options are wide open with no limitations. Right?

In actuality, this scenario would stifle most creative people. Here’s why…

Learn the 3 Parts to Real Kindle Book Publishing
How to write a book – real quick, shallow, ghost-written.
How to publish your book – hire someone who does cheap kindle books, putting their name on the cover as payment.

Learning to write by studying bestseller fiction books. Novel? No – classics.

June 18, 2013

So begins yet another writing adventure.
Found a great book, via Feedbooks, of a classic – “The Technique of the Mystery Story.” This gave me a complete inspiration to help writers learn to write better. This came up earlier when I was researching for “Just Publish! Ebook Creation for Indie Authors.” During that, I created a great tool for fiction writers, “Becoming the Fiction Storyteller of Your Dreams” – just to help people overcome writing difficulties and study up on how storytelling worked in its basics.

It came to me in studying Stephen King’s “On Writing,” that writers should be reading daily. The next problem is what to read. Louis La’mour is understood to have studied the classics to perfect his own writing style.
