KEFIR!

jw;ildjas;od;aksd;lk!!! I love Kefir.

I just bought Kefir for the first time in about a million years, and I want to slap myself in the face for every minute of my life that I wasted not drinking it.

For those unfamiliar with Kefir, it’s a fermented drink made with “kefir grains.”  Kefir is full of gut-heathy probiotics, and milk kefir tastes like sour milk in the best possible way.

Fun fact: Traditionally, kefir was made in skin bags that were hung near a doorway. The bag would be knocked by anyone passing through the doorway to help keep the milk and kefir grains well mixed. #AncientEfficiency

Benefits of Milk Kefir:

Ideally, you can make your own Kefir using kefir grains or a starter kit. That, my friends, is some next level shit.  And as a next level person, I plan on trying that soon.

For now, I’ll continue to fulfill my lazy destiny by purchasing this brand (the only brand) at my local grocery store.  Check out all the Live! Active! Cultures!

This drink has more culture than I do.

Unlike most probiotic foods that I force down my gullet (ahem ahem Kimchi), I actually enjoy Kefir because it tastes awesome and I feel good drinking it.

Drink on!

  1. This reminded me of a hype quite some years ago *giggle*
    A sourdough basis made of kefir cultures used to be handed down through families and everybody was nursing their sourdough. The dough even had a name. Hermann it was called.
    Thank you for this funny memory!

  2. I love kefir. I’m too busy commuting and too lazy to make it myself, but my mom makes it with whole milk. Not a fan of the taste (hello kefir, kale, banana, avocado, and strawberry smoothies!) but it helps keep me regular and seems to be helping my immune system (or I’m getting better about bathing in hand sanitizer and snorting it every time a kindergartner or administrator coughs on me) as I have not had anywhere near the number of colds I had before I started drinking kefir every day last summer. I know, 8 weeks left of the school year, but one cold this year vs 1 a month last year, so far so good!
