I’ve been reading, eating, watching, drinking, moving. And while engaged in all those activities, I have learned much and discovered some new things I totally like and/or love.
Two things I am fond of:
You maybe have heard of it, you maybe even have tried it. I, for one, am a fan. I first heard of this stuff from Bethenny Frankel (One of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York – a group of ladies who are just beyond description). She talked it up so I figured “eh, I’m willing to give it a go.”
Bethenny Frankel herself!
So what the heck is it? Well, it’s a cultured beverage, a living culture of beneficial microorganisms, that tastes a bit tangy (some say it resembles vinegar but I found it to be quite tasty). It’s also considered to be a super health food that promotes wellness. On the plus side too, it’s all natural, raw and organic. The label suggests that it will assist with ‘digestion; metabolism; immune system; appetite control; liver function; body alkalinity; anti-aging; cell integrity; healthy skin & hair.’ All I can say is that I enjoy it. It fills my tummy up and gives me a nice little energy boost. I do, however, have one issue – it’s a bit pricey (about $4 for a 16oz bottle). So while I will drink it on occasion, it’s not an everyday sort of item. Usually, I will drink half the bottle on one day, then save the rest for another time.

To be honest, I am really not a yogurt fan. People gush over the stuff, but I hardly ever (well, really, never) eat the stuff. And so I was surprised by my love of Kefir. This is a probiotic wonder – a fermented milk drink that will increase and promote the life of good bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. And if you didn’t know, a healthy GI tract is crucial to keeping your immune system strong (I am all about helping my body be at its best). So anyways, I’d heard this stuff does a body good so I was curious to try it out.
