Traditional Milk Kefir: Recipe

This traditional form of milk kefir has 2 ingredients …. milk and starter, that’s it. Straight up, simple stuff. I was introduced to kefir while on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal chronic yeast overgrowth. This kefir reduced my cravings, cleared my acne, and took away my endless stomach bloating.

My husband, who hails from Czech Republic, says he drank milk kefir growing up and that this traditional food is still all the rage in Europe; along with cultured butter and creme fraiche.

When you eat unsalted, cultured food, the probiotics in them will go into your gut/inner ecosystem and set up shop where they make babies, grow in population, and essentially build micro-cities the size of New York City in a matter of hours. No joke. Once they settle into your gut lining they are in a position to support you in various beneficial ways.
