Fermented Foods & Digestion : Eating Healthy with Kefir
Hey there, checking in another fermented food.
Oh, I got your curiosity going now. Ok, it’s Kefir. I know a lot of you people out there
are like, oh it’s kefir. It’s actually pronounced Kefir. Basically what this is, is a drinkable
yogurt. It’s probably not the prettiest looking thing ever. But, it’s actually really nutritious
for you and quite delicious. If you like yogurt, it’s got a similar taste to it. So, it has
that sour tart taste. Actually, kefir in Turkish is actually considered feel good. Because,
it does make you feel good. It’s a slightly different bacterium or probiotic, I should
say from yogurt. And, basically this actually populates your gut with all the good bacteria.
Whereas, yogurt tends to just more sterilize it and feed the good bacteria and the bacteria
that is in there. This actually gives you all new bacteria, instead of the yogurt. So,
their slightly different in that way. But, you can use it all kinds of ways. I know a
lot of people that pour it on their granola or their cereal, all kinds of different things
you can do with it. Or, you can just drink it like this. And, add a little honey to it.
It’s extra delicious. So, what I’m trying to say is enjoy your Kefir. Not your kefir.
And, it will make you long and healthy.
