Getting Healthy with Lifeway Kefir (up for grabs)

by Pam on September 25, 2012

My daughter, away in college, is the typical starving freshman. She skyped me with a message, “I’m hungry. Send food.” Apparently, I was not fast enough getting the care package together. While visiting my in-laws a couple of days later, the phone rang. It was my daughter, plying her “woe is me, I’m starving” tale on her grandmother. Upon further questioning, I discovered the reason behind her hunger. “They’re food is junk, Mom, and it’s making me sick.” She had visited the campus clinic and discovered she had IBS. Care packages were sent with exhortations to eat right. I also wanted to help soothe her tummy troubles and recommended probiotics for her. I knew without me there to tell her to take the pills, I might as well forget that. I needed something she would eat without complaining. Because she likes yogurt, I decided to send her coupons for Lifeway Kefir products.

What is Kefir?  Kefir is a cultured probiotic beverage similar in taste and texture to drinkable yogurt, and made from milk fermented with kefir cultures.

probiotics

Lifeway Kefir comes in frozen and drinkable forms and contains twelve probiotics. It is Gluten Free and 99% lactose free. I think it is thicker than drinkable yogurt but the taste is remarkably similar. While it can be used as a beverage, it can also be poured over cereal or granola, used in making parfaits, or mixed with fruit to make a smoothie. For picky kids and teenage daughters, Lifeway has a product called Probugs. Let’s face it, how many little boys would be excited to think they were allowed to eat bugs? Probugs are high calcium and protein frozen treats made with organic milk kefir. It comes with a patented no spill spout and easy grip shape, making it perfect for little ones to eat in the car and freshman to eat as they are dashing across campus trying to make class on time.
