Do you want to change your health and start craving healthier foods? Then you need to drink a smoothie.

smoothies 3Many years ago, I was desperate to feel better. I had no one to help me get started with cultured foods. In fact, everybody I talked with told me I was crazy and not to consume them. But I had an overwhelming desire to figure it out. Little did I know they were calling me to wellness. So I started on a whole new journey and before I knew it, I had made a jar of kefir. I remember vividly the day I looked in the jar and saw kefir looking back at me. This creamy concoction that had transformed while sitting on my counter and was so much easier to make than yogurt . . . would it help me? I hoped with all my heart that it would. We became best friends after that day. These invisible allies (microbes) fight pathogens and foreign invaders boosting my immune system and make me feel young and healthy.  They keep my food safe and help my body absorb nutrients. I think they're the best friend a girl could have. The first cultured food recipe I ever made was a smoothie. This changed everything and was easy, fast, loaded with probiotics, and yummy. So I made another one and the next day after that I made it again. And before I knew it, I was making them every day.  Not only did I enjoy them, but I started to feel a lot better. This created the fastest lifestyle change I have ever had and 13 years later I am still making them.

Seek always for the answer within. Wisdom is nothing more than healed pain.

If I could encourage you to add one new thing to your life it would be a kefir smoothie. Hands down, the fastest way to get kefir into your life is with a smoothie.

Here are three smoothies that you can get started with - and they have a 4th of July theme. All of these can also be made with regular kefir or coconut kefir and taste great both ways!

When you look into your kefir jar you won't see the invisible microbes looking back at you, but they're there. Make them a part of your life and especially your gut.  It could quite possibly . . . change your whole life.
