Here are some of the benefits of eating this salad. Apples help to activate the muscle cell insulin receptors keeping blood sugar levels in better balance. Strawberries have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Blueberries have compounds called proanthocyanidins that prevent bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract, preventing UTI's. Walnuts also have a positive effect on thermogenesis. Thermogenesis helps to increase your metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories), suppress your appetite, and promote weight loss. Kefir & Kombucha are probiotic powerhouses that give you tons of probiotics. All of the fruits are prebiotics and the kefir and kombucha are probiotic so this salad has numerous benefits!
You will fool even yourself with this one! Use your extra SCOBYS and lots of ice and you have a cool summer treat. It's a unique flavor and texture when mixed with fruit and herbs. You'll want to use all your SCOBYs to make sorbets.
This is a wonderful combination of prebiotics and probiotics. You can use tart dried cherries or dried blueberries- or both! It only takes a few minutes to mix them together for a fast treat! Don't be afraid, scobys are good for you!
Just another sneaky way to add extra probiotics into your life and use up that ever growing mound of Kombucha Scobys. Don't be afraid of eating your scobys. They are made of cellulose, or long strands of linked glucose, which we know more commonly as fiber. They aids in waste removal, including metabolic waste normally excreted in bile. They also have no calories. Check out this blog to find More ways to use your scobys.
These are refined sugar free, blessed with probiotics from your SCOBY, and joined with the healing powers of coconut oil!
Molasses gives these bars their rich flavor. Molasses is a rich source of nutrients, and it contains a number of essential minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, copper, iron, phosphorous, chromium, cobalt, and sodium. Blackstrap molasses is the type of molasses I use since it has a low glycemic index. This means the glucose and carbohydrates are metabolized slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilizing blood sugar.
This recipe can be tweaked and made many ways. You can make it dairy free with coconut kefir cheese and tofutti. It can also be sugar free, which is how I make it, with stevia. It is also gluten free. Any way you decide to do it, you should really make this recipe. It's pretty awesome. And remember, tofu is a fermented food too!
When choosing a chocolate bar, a higher “percent cacao” means less added sugar. For example, a 77 percent cacao dark chocolate has roughly 10 percent less sugar than a 60 percent cacao dark chocolate. It will also have a richer chocolate taste which really gives a lot of flavor to this brownie recipe. You can use different percentages and see how you like them.
My family loves these cookies. I would double or triple the recipe and freeze some to keep on hand. I love how super easy these are to throw together and how my family gobbles them up!

This is a delicious dish that my family loves at Thanksgiving. Creamy cultured custard makes for a yummy treat.
Spinach is a superfood and one of my favorite foods to add to foods for some added health benefits. With nutrients that include folate, vitamin c, niacin, riboflavin, and potassium spinach is an incredible food that doesn’t change the flavor of the food you add it too. One of my favorite cartoons growing up was Popeye the Sailor and he always ate spinach for extra strength. I suggest you do the same! I love this ice cream maker because it has a compressor and is always ready to make me ice cream whenever I need it. Click Here to Purchase
You can substitute almond butter, cashew butter, or any nut butter for a great kefir ice cream. I use stevia in place of sugar in the recipe. Nuts and legumes are prebiotics, which is food for your bacteria to make it grow and multiply. These are considered some of the most satiating foods. Studies have found that people who eat nuts (tree nuts like cashews, almonds and pistachios, along with their legume pal, the peanut) live longer and healthier lives, with less risk of chronic ailments like heart disease, respiratory problems and Type 2 diabetes.
This recipe takes just a few minutes to put together. It is super versatile with any kind of berries and it is incredibly good for you and really really yummy! You could even use it as a topping for shortcakes. You will love this super simple dessert loaded With Vitamin C, A and probiotics too!

I love this topping and I use it often. It gives everything a little probiotics and it makes my whipped cream stay fresh and last longer. A little goes a long way with this recipe. This will last in a sealed container in the fridge for several weeks.
I like to use Tazo Chai tea bags. You can use whatever Chai tea bag you like or make your own blend. Layer with your choice of toppings: Granola, pecans, toasted coconut, fruit, etc... Whatever you can dream up.
Mangoes and strawberries topped with Kefir Coconut Ice Cream. So, so good! Coconut milk makes wonderful ice cream and the fruity concoction in the bottom of the bowl makes for one of the best combos. I could eat this everyday and in the summertime I eat it often. Strawberries have more vitamin C than orange juice and mangoes also give you an impressive amount of Vitamin C and A. Did you know mangoes are in the same family of plants as pistachios and cashews? Kind of interesting don't you think?!
I love, love chocolate. Sometimes I think it is the magnesium that chocolate contains that I crave and need. At least this is what I tell myself. This has just a little kefir mixed in the chocolate that makes the chocolate extra creamy. So I always say, if you're gonna have sugar, have a cultured food with it. This way those little microbes can help consume some of the extra sugar and keep you in balance.
Grapes are full of Vitamin C, potassium and even calcium. Grapes have compounds with antioxidant properties called flavonoids. Flavonoids are a diverse group of phytonutrients (plant chemicals) found in almost all fruits and vegetables. Like other phytonutrients, flavonoids are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits. Grapes are great for you!! You will love this cool treat in the summertime. As you spoon into the tart Kombucha you get a burst of sweet flavor from the grapes. Yea its good!!
Coconut milk is full of medium chain fatty acids, which supports the thyroid and gives you energy.
