The Cow Named Donna Moo


cow's with heart copyI have always had an obsession with cows and goats. I’m not quite clear why, but when twelve goats wound up in our front yard on the 4th of July one year, I begged to keep them. They had knocked their fence down after being scared off by fireworks and they came to the safest place they could imagine, my front yard. I’m quite certain this is the reason why – they could feel the love and followed it.

I Love Cows

let cows eat grass copyI love cows too, and so much so that one of my milk farmers named a cow after me, calling it Donna Moo. He also had a cow with a heart on its forehead. For years I wore T-shirts with cows on the front until my kids forbade me to buy or wear them anymore. I LIKE COWS! I can transform their milk into kefir (and goats milk, too) and it has helped me change my life in a dramatic way. I love them so much for helping me become well that I have reserved a special place in my heart for them. For those of you who are dairy free, I want you to know that non- kefir is very effective, too, and has helped many people as well as dairy kefir. They’re both fantastic so please have some kefir any way you can. Here is a yummy, super easy cookie recipe made with kefir. You can put it together in a snap and sneak kefir into your family’s diet without them knowing it. Just in case you have some picky eaters at your house.

Don’t reach for junk food when you can have something just as good and loaded with probiotics. Just remember you’re 99% bacteria and don’t you think you should start eating this way? Just sayin’ . . . it’s kind of important. Your gut is counting on you.

If you don’t recognize an ingredient, your body won’t either.

  1. My 3 older sisters knew about me and My candida Albicans, so i told them that the company i bought product to try to cure candida .. ALSO sent me your link they knew this food would HELP ME and my gut ALOT. well i fell in love with Fefir, i already drank Kamboucha just did not know i could make it myself!!
    I forward them your link… now i have 3 older sisters on board.. we are having a blast with sharing our ideas and recipe .. ( the Kefir cow pie) are so good i’m afraid i can eat them all in one day .. oops.
    my true question is .. when separate the whey from the drink .. is that sour cream or cheese in the coffee filter .. when do you know you have made yogurt/cheese/ or sour cream!!! they kinda look alike and almost taste all alike.. how do you know the deference that could be a great video class to explain that to us the beginners.
    thank you for adding LIFE to my Gut and my life.
    i feel so proud that i can change my eating habits all the way around.
    thank you.

  2. Donna,

    I made these this afternoon and they are so delicious! Hubby loves them and I get an opportunity to give him Kefir. I made some as is and another batch with dried cranberries. Thank you for being a blessing to others. I always have two vessels of Kombucha brewing, kefir and fermented vegetables in the fridge to enjoy. Wouldn’t want to live without them and love sharing them with others.

  3. Thank you so much for making me so passionate about kefir. I have given away so many grains to friends and family , I feel im doing my bit too. I really look forward to all your info and recipes. Thank you.

  4. I know I could probably use quinoa flakes in place of the oats but I am wondering if you could also sub rice krispies? Oats do not work for me.
    Recipe looks yummy!

  5. Thanks for a milk kefir recipe. I have both mik and water grains galore, but I can’t find enough ways to use them (other than smoothies or kefir pop) that my family will like. Any other suggestions are appreciated.

    • After I posted my question, I traveled down your site, and found recipes. So I guess I answered my own question. Woot woot.

  6. Hi Donna,
    I would like to sincerely thank you, for introducing me to Keifir. I am truly grateful.
    I live in Ireland so I am unable to buy from your online shop but I am to receive your exciting emails. Thank you?
