Kefir Love

Image

At two recent seminars I conducted, I asked participants if they had heard of or ever tried kefir. There were mixed reviews among both groups. The prevailing opinion of those that had tried it was that it tastes “funny.” Kefir does have a tart taste (think buttermilk) and it is an acquired taste. The great thing about kefir is that it packs a whopping 11 grams of protein per serving! So for my dairy-loving friends, this product packs a protein power punch!

So for those people that have not yet acquired a taste for kefir, or haven’t tried it and are reluctant to, I recommend mixing it in smoothies to get the benefits while cutting the tart taste. Since the kefir dialogue has been started, I thought it might be nice to share with you a couple of kefir recipes that you can try.

If you make them, please comment and let me know what you thought!

Take care of yourself, be nice to yourself, and be well. And until next time…veg in, don’t vet out!
