Blood, Sweat, and Tears

"Writing styles are not easy to come by, they are forged by fire, they are cooled by the tears of ones own eyes, and they are oiled by the authors own blood; sheathing that style is an entirely new level of pain." - Shy willow

Water Kefir and those Beautiful Grains

Shortly before we left on our very exciting Denver trip my dear friend blessed our family with a jar of water kefir grains and an instruction sheet. Prior to being diagnosed with a pretty intense milk allergy I made many batches of delicious creamy milk kefir. I have to admit I noticed less symptoms with the milk kefir than I did with regular milk, but for the sake of my poor tummy I chose to completely eliminate milk from my diet.
I read a bit about water grains but I was somewhat intimidated by the idea of it and never “dove-right-in”, even though I really missed my morning kefir shake. Anyhow, we are back in town and as I have the dish washer whirring, and the laundry machine swishing, and am still nursing Sweet Pea and myself back to health, I have started my first two batches of water kefir grains. The process was extremely simple, and I am eagerly awaiting the results and hopeful they will restore some balance to our sick day stomachs.
Of course no adventure is complete without a whirlwind session of research, so here is what I have so far! I will give more updates on our water grain adventure as they unfold! If you have any additional info leads feel free to add them to a comment! Also I wouldn’t mind your experiences with water kefir, or even questions.

Where do I find Water Kefir Grains?-     (Besides friends that uses water grains)

Please keep in mind that I enjoy sharing information that I find and that I personally use, but I am not a health professional, if you choose to utilize the information I share, you do so on your own accord.

Thanks for Stopping By
