Meet Local Nutritionist Meghan Hintz
OlyKraut had the honor of interviewing local health coach, nutritionist, and fermentationist Meghan Hintz. Meghan has lived in the Olympia area for 5 years and has been a friend to OlyKraut since 2012 when she finished her Fermentation Certification with Summer Bock. Meghan has been passionate about nutrition since she discovered the incredible impact probiotics have on her own health. Much of her work is centered around digestive health, because the gut helps us absorb nutrients and therefore it is the root of a well functioning immune system, healthy skin, brain function, lots of energy, etc. She also points out that everyone has different needs when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, and she dedicates her work to helping people meet their unique nutritional needs. Meghan’s favorite thing to do with sauerkraut is to top it on a taco or eat it with sardines and mashed up avocado. But really she just likes it on everything! Meghan offers digestive wellness programs and also teaches classes on making pickles, miso, and sauerkraut with samples of OlyKraut. Meghan loves sharing fermentation skills through her classes. You'll find a link to Meghan's website and a list of her classes below. Miso and pickles are up next with sauerkraut soon to follow. Perhaps April is the month you finally try your hand at fermentation!
