The Tale of the Disappearing Kefir Grains

Kefir Grains

kefir grains

We make a lot of kefir. We drink it every day along with making kefir cheese and kefir sodas, so we make it daily. As usual, my husband and kids were helping me make kefir on April 1st, 2014. As I poured out the jugs into the strainer, no kefir grains appeared. I got a sick feeling in my stomach and panic started to wash over me as I went through every jug I had looking for kefir grains, but no grains anywhere. Then I saw my husband snickering in the corner and I saw the words APRIL FOOLS come out of his mouth. He had hidden the grains in other jugs where I couldn’t find them. May God Have Mercy on His Soul.

Kefir has been one of the most important things in my life. Before kefir, I felt like I wasn’t living anymore, only existing and kefir changed all of that. Not only did it make me feel better than I had ever felt in my life, but it opened doors and showed me gifts and talents I had that lay dormant. I felt too bad to do anything extraordinary, I was just existing, never knowing that a whole new life was waiting for me where wellness was the order of the day. Discovering my trillion microbes was a game changer, and feeding and caring for my invisible helpers has been an exciting journey. I have more recipes for kefir on my site than anything else because I do love it so much.

Kefir Lemon Pudding Cake

I have one recipe I make constantly and wanted to give it to you. It's one of my favorites and it is very simple to make. It has the texture of Greek yogurt with a lemony flavor and it's so simple to make. I've created a new Spring cultured recipe book for my Biotic pro members and this recipe is included in it as well.

Lemon Kefir Creme
I eat this dish all the time. It tastes and looks like Greek yogurt. I have it often for breakfast with fresh fruit, and it's fun to serve it with pancakes or eat it by itself, it's so so good. Eating kefir and lemons gives me lots of vitamin C and B's. This helps strengthen my adrenals and lemon peels and their zest contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. Lemons are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body and flooding the body with nutrients it needs to stay healthy..

Each month I have a new recipe book for my members along with the courses, lessons, health topics, live chat, menu planners, videos and more on my site. These recipes are extensions of the way I live my life and I'm constantly making new ones.
