Kombucha To Kimchi: Which Fermented Foods Are Best For Your Brain?

  Many countries around the world have their own staple fermented foods which are ingrained into culture and diet. It can’t be a coincidence that this has happened again and again. It seems logical that fermented foods offer more than a method of preservation.?  Diet can hugely impact your mental health and previous research has shown that some foods are particularly good at positively impacting your brain. Fermented foods are a source of tryptophan, an amino acid key to the production of serotonin, a messenger in the brain which influences several aspects of brain function, including mood.

Vegan Chocolate Custard Recipe

  Ingredients: 4 level tablespoons/60ml corn flour 6 tablespoons/75g/90ml white sugar 2 cups/500ml milk substitute 1 cup/225ml water 5 tablespoons/37.5g/75ml cocoa 1 teaspoon/5ml vanilla extract Add all ingredients to a saucepan and whisk vigorously until completely combined and smooth without lumps. Place the saucepan on the stove on low-medium heat, continue to whisk frequently for about 10 minutes until it slowly brought to the boil. Be careful that the custard does not stick to the bottom of the saucepan. Take off the heat at this point (It will have thickened but will still be easy to pour). Allow to sit for 10 minutes to allow to thicken if eating hot or pour into a bowl or ramekin and refrigerate for at least 3 hours until completely set. The set consistency will be similar to a soft jelly. private chefs and event catering Palm Beach + Boca Raton + Fort Lauderdale + Miami Beach | 954-367-YADA (9232) 561-285-7466 south florida catering and pers
