Fermented food for life

Home

Hello, I’m Brenna.

I’m a Believer, a wife and a mother of three. We are an international family with hearts split between the US and Australia but are currently settled in the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon.

I am a food lover, fermenter, recipe developer and nutrition aficionado (food nerd). Our family menu is constantly in transition as I learn to feed a family simple, nutritious meals whilst juggling the ever changing needs of my own autoimmune disease. Hashimoto’s is a real part of our life and we have to roll with the punches. Fermenting helps!

Culturing foods used to be the standard way to preserve foods before the industrial revolution. I love the unique flavors that emerge from such a simple process. Fermenting not only removes much of the toxins that plants try to throw at us but also loads them with probiotics! You always end up with less bitterness and more bite. I think that duo is something in which we can all benefit. So welcome and I hope you enjoy!

Most people know these as those pickled carrots you can sometimes get in really authentic Mexican restaurants.  And “pickled” is appropriate, or at least used to be an appropriate term for fermenting carrots.  These days pickling often refers to a method of preserving vegetables in […]
