    where my weight went wrong was when I purchased a bread making machine. I knew it wasnt a good idea but I did it anyway and made and ate lovely bread until I had ballooned to 12 stones. Then I saw the error of my ways and pushed it as far as I could to the back of the cupboard. I still really fancy bread, particularly when passing a bakery, so I understand your problem with the sourdough.

    • Ive been using bi carbonate of soda and coconut oil to clean my teeth.I did look into flouride free paste but found it very expensive. So far I ma happy with the new regime and my teeth are actually whiter although that could be because I dont drink tea anymore and not much coffee.

      • Aahhh, just cracked open my first berry soda of the summer. It is fantastic. A rather dry tasting raspberry soda. Nice and fizzy.

        Very good for you also. This lacto-fermented soda is the kind of soda they used to serve in the "soda fountains" that were in a lot of pharmacies in the old days because they were good digestives. That is where root beer started also. Yummmm

              • It is a lengthy process to describe and I am not sure how to input here. I have it in a word file. umm. There are photos in it and I don't think it would paste well in here. Any ideas?

                  • Here is a site from WPF that describes the process but the Word file I have has nice pictures and a lovely description of the whole process.

                    • I'll try that now Goldie. Thanks. Well it appears the file exceeds the limit of what I am allowed to upload to this site. I may try to cut it up into smaller pieces if the WPF description isn't enough.
                      Let me know what you think.
                      I make quite a few fermented foods these days. It certainly has helped my digestive tract. No more IBS.

                      Off to work now. Gotta get the siding on the house done in the next couple of weeks or I am toast.

                        A Life Unprocessed: Lacto-Fermented Dandelion Soda

                        Comment


                        • Yes, very similar. You can also use Whey as a starter instead of the ginger bug but I have never tried that. I think that might work better for my root beer recipe so I will try that this fall when I have more time. Great site for fermentation info. Thanks for sharing it. I would like to try this dandelion soda sometime.

                          I am going to try rhubarb soda this summer as well. A friend of mine tried that and says it is her new favorite. I love fermenting things. Great fun and my digestion has improved immensely. Let me know what you try if you decide to try it.

                          • HiClassic - thanks for this info ! love the idea of making sodas and curious to see what its like , have made ginger beer as a child (but it exploded !) I think the info on a life unprocessed may help there ! am going to try some sauerkraut DH just loves that too and so pleased that its good for digestion too..great

                            • Hi Classic and all, yes, it is a very interesting site and the dandelion soda also looks promising. I have had to supplement potassium because I was experiencing rapid heart beat and since dandelion is ,I think, high in potassium it might be one to try.
                              The rhubarb season, I think is coming to an end in the UK but raspberries are coming into season. Can you use frozen fruit and if you use fruits with seeds such as raspberries do you just strain before or after fermenting ?
                              thanks, Barbara

                              • Hi Govinca, congratulations on the weight loss. Can you tell me what proportions you have been aiming for in carbs, fat and protein. I am really struggling to lose any weight at all. I tried eating more ,I put on three pounds + inches, Ive reduced calories and lost 1lb. Very frustrating and I dont know which way to jump.
                                id you give up dairy ? I was really hoping not to have to do that.
                                thanks, Barbara
