The Fermenter: Tim McNeilly – AKA Fermenting KING!….. From Really Awesome Wholefoods
Tim has run over 30 workshops and assisted around 500 people to discover the amazing health benefits that these fermented foods can provide, and is passionate about people taking-charge of their health.
Tim’s interest in health and nutrition started over 25 when he was given a copy of ‘Fit For Life’. This one book changed his life – ‘flicked a switch’ so to speak.
‘The book introduced him to the concept of food combining and nutrition in general. He had never before associated what I put in my mouth with my body and how it works. Shortly after that he became a vegetarian for compassionate reasons and also for the health and environmental benefits’.
Over the years Tim has delved deeper into finding out what makes our bodies work optimally and has come to the understanding that we require clean air and water, chemical-free, local, seasonal, fresh fruit and vegies, probiotics (as fermented foods & drinks), enzymes, vitamins and minerals and micronutrients.
Tim began fermenting by making beer which is a fairly common initiation amongst aussie guys. That lasted about a year before he was given some milk kefir grains and that’s where his ‘real’ fermenting journey begun. “Finding the best quality milk back then was a lot harder than it is now”.
In 2002 Tim attended a workshop with Donna Gates (Body Ecology Diet) and that inspired him to take his journey even further, introducing coconut kefir, sauerkraut and other ferments.
More recently, Tim studied with Fred Bisci (Raw Food guru) and in 2010 he attended a raw food gathering in Vilcabamba, Ecuador, which further expanded his knowledge and understanding of how our bodies utilise the nutrients from the foods we ingest.
Tim assisted with David Wolfe’s last 2 tours in Australia, this allowed him to further expand his knowledge about adaptogenic herbs and tonics, which he includes in a lot of his kombucha. He also produces the best kimchi and fermented vegetables going around.
Tim’s Kombucha was also sought out in large quantities for The Vegie Bar (Melbourne)’s most recent Raw Food Event with USA’s award Winning Raw Culinary Chef Matthew Kenney.
Over the last 3 years, Tim has successfully been running fermenting workshops around Australia which cover around a dozen traditional ferments. Although he admits to not being a master just yet, he’s still learning why probiotics are such a vital food for us to consume. ‘100 years ago these foods and beverages used to be staples in countless cultures around the world – they have now been mainly forgotten about with the western methods of food production and processing. I am passionate about re-educating health conscious people about fermented foods – foods that really work to promote and support health – functional foods’. Most of these foods and drinks are delicious and easy to make once you experience the processes involved.
Tim has his own company Really Awesome Wholefoods and is about to release his products nationally. Tim is passionate about educating people on the importance of adding fermented foods to the diet to enhance gut health. He is an extremely bubbly and bright human being. Tim will not only knock your socks off with his incredible ferments, but his gift in uplifting every being who crosses his path!
