I’ve been learning about these funky little things.
They are called Kefir Grains.
This is into my second week of growing it from those grains.
I bought them off amazon.com.
Since we’re using raw milk these days, I grow them in there.
I’m hoping to see the health benefits from using this stuff.
It’s great for the balancing the intestinal tract with live probiotics.
This is my jar of kefir so far.
There are many things you can do with the stuff.
I’m looking forward to making it into smoothies or pancakes.
It has an interesting yeasty type taste and smell.
Don’t think I could just drink it like some people do though.
I’ve also been trying more natural sweeteners (not pictured is honey).
Agave is ok and I like the Sucanat. Stevia must be an acquired taste
and I haven’t acquired that taste, yet. It does ok in our
homemade toothpaste/soap stuff though.
That recipe is found HERE.
My kids LOVE using that toothsoap on their teeth and
I’m glad! I feel so much better with a few changes we’ve been
slowly making around here.
We still have a long way to go, but I figure something is better than
nothing. This is thanks to my mother-in-law, who handed me the book
The Maker’s Diet that Easter Sunday. 🙂
Sometimes you just never know what reading something
will do to your life. What God will use to change your thinking.
While we haven’t done the diet part of that book,
there are many changes we can make to our lives that will
benefit our health in the long run.
