One of my friends and blog followers forwarded this recipe for cultured vegetable juice. It does take a few days for the first batch to be ready but after that it's ready the next day.
For those of you who are not familiar with Donna Gates, she is a tireless supporter of eating cultured veggies. Her work has helped tens of thousands of people with digestive disorders and the ensuing complications. She has even been very successful in working with kiddos on the Autism Spectrum with her Body Ecology Diet.
Thanks for sharing Nancy!

Hi Dr. Parker...here is the cultured veggie drink I sent your way!
Cultured Veggie Juice by Donna Gates
Fill blender with chopped red or green cabbage
Add purified or spring water until blender is 2/3rds full (I use pH 8 ionized water)
Blend on Hi speed for 2 minutes
Add a package of l.plantarum starter culture
Poor mixture into a glass jar with tight fitting lid
Let sit at room temp for 3 days
Strain and place in frig
For a second batch, simply add 1/2 cup of first batch to the second and it will be ready in 24 hours
Drink 1 and 1/2 cups of cultured veggie juice per day..divided throughout the day...suggest drinking a small glass with each meal as it greatly assists digestion. Several ounces upon waking and at bedtime when stomach is empty is also very wise!
