Sorry for the recipe hiatus of late. Life has been lobbing lemons at me with an elephantine sling-shot. Back to recipes shortly, but in the meantime, check out this fascinating article from Science Daily about a research study published in this week’s Nature that shows a link between a healthy gut and a healthy you. The key is fiber (no new news), but the interest is in the mechanics of it all. Apparently the bacteria in your gut luh-uh-uhhhhve their fiber and if you heap it generously upon them, they will shower you with their one-of-a-kind, artisanal immune-boosting boosters resulting in a happier, healthier, less-sick you. So don’t deny your small fry the glory of gritty grains! (and fruit. and vegetable matter.) Gimme some roughage. Mm.
