Our mission in Live Cultured Probiotic Food consultations is

#1 Provide healthy dining solutions to your patrons.  Travelers often experience digestive distress when traveling or eating out.  You want to be the restaurant everyone comes to because they enjoy vibrant health while traveling if they eat at your establishment.

#2 Setting you apart from your competitors.  Live Cultured Foods will energize your menu with their vibrant colors and exquisite tastes.

#3 higher profit margins.  Probiotic foods are an incredible healing tool and one of the great things about them is you only have to eat a few tablespoons once or twice a day to see noticeable results in your health.  What does this mean for a restaurant?  There is considerable profit to be made in helping your clientelle become more healthy eating at your dining establishment.  You only need to add a small amount of foods to completely change their dining experience in your country by optimizing their digestive health.

I believe that different people are nourished by different foods -some people do well on an all raw diet, some people function best eating a vegetarian diet and some people do well with meat. The reason I love live cultured foods is I really believe everyone can benefit from these. Traditional cultures, almost universally, ate some if not many forms of live cultured foods. It has gone from something universally eaten by the human race to almost non-existent with very poor substitutes . . . commercialized foods like ketchup, canned sauerkraut, vinegared canned pickles, beer. I think our lack of live cultured foods and our poor substitutes are the reason that our culture consumes so much sugar, processed foods and alcohol. When you start eating live cultured foods – just a little bit daily, it changes your “gut flora.” When this changes, you desire nourishing foods and less of the junk! It is cool. We often over-focus on eliminating the “bad” food from our diet and struggle. I love this approach – add a little bit of great nourishing food everyday and change your gut flora so you desire better and better food.
