Apple Cider Kefir: A Probiotic Recipe

This kefir is made from apple cider and starter; a sour ‘n fizzy concoction with a champagne-like taste …. pure effervescence rich in diverse, potent probiotic strains; basically a bunch of friendly flora that act as digestive aids to keep the gut in good shape. More benefits.

Looking for an easy, affordable way to get your probiotic dose? This might be for you. Especially if you have an issue with your gut (i.e. bloating, constipation) or yeast/bacterial overgrowth (i.e. Candida, GBS+). 

No matter what you have going on, a glass of juice kefir is a way to kick start a day and keep the internal bugs in balance.

B.E.D. Yeast infection

Using B.E.D. for Vaginal Yeast Infections

If you get vaginal yeast infections more then you want one then I highly recommend The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). I could go on and on about this way of eating as I personally adhered to stage 1 for 3 years back in 2010 after being diagnosed with a systemic yeast infection (included tons of itching and discomfort down below).

Hands down, I think B.E.D. is one of the best yeast killing, yeast balancing protocols out there.

Regular jelly isn’t ‘allowed’ on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D); which recommends to avoid sugar (except lakanto, stevia, ecobloom) until your gut is in a better place. Until then it’s best to kefir jelly with probiotics to reduce the concentrated fruit sugar. Your belly might thank you 🙂 Here’s my recipe for bubbly blueberry jelly

Thumbs Up: Keeping Kids Cavity-Free 😁

This is a hot topic for parents. For all of us really …. who wants to be told they have a cavity while sitting in the dentist chair?! Getting a cavity is never fun, no matter how old you are.

I am mom of two kids; my youngest, who is now 11, has no cavities and my oldest, now 17, had a tiny one when he was 6. Thankfully, it was on a baby tooth and because of my son’s fear of needles we pulled the tooth ,rather than fill it, as he was going to lose that tooth naturally shortly.
