Fermented Food for Dads

The process of fermenting food is fun, therapeutic and so rewarding when you get to enjoy and share your delicious creation. Getting your dad started with fermenting food will help keep him healthy, happy and busy.

Here's 5 Reasons Your Dad Should Be Fermenting Food... Pst! There's a coupon code at the bottom. 

1. Improved Stomach Health 

Fermented foods are loaded with probiotics that help balance the bacteria in stomaches. These probiotics also assist with digestion and bowels, which will help keep dad regular. 

2. Guilt-Free Snack

Thanks to their predominately vegetable-based recipes, most fermented foods have next-to-nothing calories while still being loaded with flavour. Replacing fatty snacks like chips and cashews with fermented food can help dad lose weight if that's something on his "do to" list. 

3. Family Time

From finding the recipe to mixing the ingredients, fermenting food is extremely fun, especially for beginners, and is a great project to start as a family. The anticipation of waiting for a jar to finish fermenting is very exciting and is something you and your dad can enjoy together. 

4. Money Saver 

If your dad is already eating fermented foods, like sauerkraut, kombucha or kimchi, you probably already know they can be a little expensive. Fermenting your own food cuts down that cost, especially with Masontops fool-proof fermenting technology. No more spoiled recipes!
