Since meeting the lovely Karley of Complete You, I noticed she is a massive advocate of milk kefir. I am always so interested in new ways of improving health and nutrition and have tried to incorporate probiotic rich foods into my diet since reading Kimberly Snyders The Beauty Detox Solution. The main ways I do this are with raw apple cider vinegar, raw sauerkraut, kombucha or taking a probiotic tablet.

I had heard of the benefits of kefir but never tried it, so Karley very kindly sent me a batch to give it a go! It took me a day or 2 to adjust to the taste as it is quite thick and has a tangy flavour. But after this initial period, it started to go down really easily and became part of my daily diet. I also tried blending it with some banana and almond butter and it was really good! The other thing that really appealed to me is how easy it is to grow by yourself as the good bacteria multiplies so fast. I have tried making my own sauerkraut and it takes so long and is quite hard to get right so kefir seems like a mug easier option for me. Below Karley explains all of the benefits and she can also help get people started if you happen to live in the Sydney region! Enjoy x
