Hi Sarah,
I love your videos and information about preparing breakfast food and I have a question.

When I am soaking oatmeal, for example, you say I need to use filtered water. I don't have a water filter. We had a water filter but it was that BPA plastic. DO I need one that hooks onto the faucet? Are there new ones that don't have toxic plastic? Can I buy filtered water? Does the filtered water allow the good microorganisms to do their work? I'm sorry, this may be a series of questions.
Thanks
John Saltveit

Water is a tricky question. I have a well so I use a heavy duty carbon block filter with a UV light that filters at the kitchen tap (installed under the sink) and that does the job very well. This is what I've used for over 20 years. Makes the best kombucha by the way

For folks on city water with fluoride, I would recommend spring water in glass jugs. This is because filters that claim to take out fluoride don't do a very good job of it and a lot of the fluoride still remains after filtering.
