Five Minute Kefir Dip
This recipe has only two cultured ingredients (cultured veggies and kefir cheese) and has more probiotics than any other dip recipe and it's crazy delicious. It's one of my family's most made recipes. On one particular occasion I took this to a party, and people were gobbling it up and asking me what was in it. I'm always hesitant to go into the big explanation of fermented foods since most people are unfamiliar with fermented foods and don't know what kefir is let alone cultured veggies, but on this occasion, it was warranted. Most people only took a small spoonful of my dish and everybody brought dishes but one man went crazy for this dip and could not stop eating it. I bet he ate at least three cups and oh my that is so MANY, MANY probiotics that were going to flood his body and clean house. I tried to warn him to slow down and explained that for somebody who has never had cultured foods of this magnitude, he was going to be thinking about me the next day when he was in the bathroom. Well, that was met with uproarious laughter from him and everybody who was listening, so I proceeded to tell him just what he had done.
Food is powerful medicine and your body is a gift that is quite miraculous. The purpose of food is to supply your body with energy and things that it needs to keep you in balance and create new cells and feed your good bacteria. Since you're mostly bacteria (100 trillion) and those bacteria work in numbers to do their job, you just flooded your body with billions of good bacteria that now have the numbers to go after pathogens, and believe you me—they will. You've unleashed a dragon that will kill those pathogens mightily, and so tomorrow you will feel it if your body can't eliminate the waste fast enough. Three CUPS is a lot!! I then proceeded to take the dip away from him and everybody had a great laugh, but I know these microbes and they will have the last say.
The next day he said, "You were right! Holy cow I was in the bathroom for a long time," and I said, "Were you constipated?" He said, "Yes, and I feel like I'm not done yet!"
