Kefir. Kefir is awesome stuff. Kefir is the healthiest drink around. Kefir grains make kefir drink. Kefir milk grains and kefir water grains make a drink that can be made to your specs because YOU are the maker!
I haven’t been writing blogs because it seems they need to be SO long. Most times, I don’t have that kind of time. It takes 2 hours to put out a blog with photos, the right words, all that stuff. But I was reading a newsletter from Chris Brogan http://www.chrisbrogan.com/ in which he is always talking about what he is drinking in the first paragraph. I read one from a few days ago and he was drinking store bought kombucha. That jogged my memory to write and tell you about kefir.
Kefir is awesome! Better than yogurt and FAR MORE healthier. Yogurt gives you some bacteria, 3-6 strains?, but goes THROUGH the gut. Kefir has hundreds and COLONIZES the gut. I bought some grains off Amazon, [never again], then a gal sent me some from one of the kefir groups on facebook. I have been going hog wild in kefiring millk. I have learned half and half is the best, or whole milk with some half & half. 2% was sour/tart and nasty to ME. Even Pico didn’t like it. [my dog]
There are B vitamins galore in this and healthy yeast. There’s hundreds of strains of bacteria and I FEEL better taking it and my dog’s allergies are better. Not gone, but better. I give him and me some in a bowl with DiamondV feed added to it. And recently I’ve begun making water kefir. oh YUMMMMMM. As you make the kefir, the grains you have will grow and you can share them with others. Do it for free. Really. When have you EVER been able to improve someone’s health for free? Shipping in a padded envelope only costs $2.32. Put them in a plastic bottle, tape it and send it. Spread the love in a positive way. And you don’t send 2 oz! If you want a plastic bottle that is more flat than round, go here: http://bluesagenaturals.com/specials.php There are facebooks groups about kefir. One I am on is Wild Fermentation. There is also one that is only for sharing the grains and kombucha scoby’s. You have nothing to lose, and LOTS to gain. Try making your own kefir! It’s WAY better than ANYTHING you can buy in the store. Drinkable, flavorable and SO SO healthy! It tastes like yogurt, can be drinkable or spreadable if you make a cheese out of it. I’ve put coffee beans in mine, have made cheese, have made it almost to the firmness of yogurt. And baby, I feel a lot better. Healther, just better. Yanno? Just better.
