Bryan’s Pro-Biotic Ginger Bug

(a recipe that is super simple and can heal/restore your health!)

2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons grated ginger root (skin and all).
1 cup of spring or filtered water (not straight tap water).
Stir these ingredients in a cup (mason jar is best).

Every day or 2 add the same amount of ginger and sugar (and water as necessary).

This will start to bubble, then you know it’s active and consuming the sugar.
You just pour a bit (spoonful) of the liquid into a glass of your drinking water, or any cool beverage really.

You’ll be consuming just a tiny fraction of a teaspoon of sugar, but you’re getting a healthy dose of probiotics.


This liquid can be used for many many purposes. Even making your own ginger ale (or ginger beer as it is called).

Pizza Peppers

4 large 8 inch banana peppers..washed,topped, cut lengthwise and seeded. Lay them on a foil lined cookie sheet and fill with your favorite pizza sausage…it takes about a pound. Bake them at about 350 for a half an hour or until they are cooked through and browned on top.

While that is baking, sauté some coconut oil or butter in a pan with about a pound of sliced mushrooms and 8 diced roma tomatoes. Add 1-2 tsp basil and a pinch of oregano, salt and pepper, or whatever spices you love on pizza.

When the peppers some out of the over, put two on a plate, spoon the tomato mixture on top and then cover with parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. I stuck them back in the warm oven for a couple minutes and wow…I will never miss a pizza crust again.

  • Thanks for having me on the show Mindy and Jimmy!
    I hope a few folks will be inspired to discover fermented foods for themselves.

      Bryan, thanks for joining in and bringing your unique story to our listeners! It’s always fun!

    If you buy a bottle of raw kombucha to drink, it’s very easy to start a culture from it. Here is a video link. It’s super easy.

    I will say, though, that the flavour might startle some people. It develops vinegar as it ferments, and that’s not something we usually drink. At first I used it as a salad dressing, then as I developed a taste for it I started to drink it straight.
