starting to feel healthier

Despite some home made fudge my friend and I made, I am feeling a lot better about myself.

I've been having a bowl of soup every day. I added sourkraut into the bowl today- tastes so good! The broth isn't quite as good as I would have liked because I cooked the bones a few more times than I should have

I finished making my second batch of yogurt yesterday. I tipped it upside down with cheese cloth placed in the lid (canning jars) and then this morning I strained the liquid out so that its a little thicker. I think if I would have let it sit like that longer it would have been more like greek yogurt. I have almost 3 quarts worth (started with 3 but after draining the liquid its a bit less) of yogurt- that shoulf last me for awhile. I think I'll be eating about a cup per day....guess I better check how long it keeps for.

I have enough juice for a few days and then I'll have to start making it again.

I just found a recipe for fruit leather, so I am really excited to make that when I get the ingredients.

I also found a recipe for brown rice flour. I'm not sure what I would use brown rice flour for yet, but I am interested in making it. One of the main reasons I had not switched to an alternate flour back when I was doing this before was because of the cost. I may be able to do it now. Just need to get a few recipes together to see if it will be worth it.

I've got a lot of stuff rolling around in my head!

    Have you tried to make keifer? My friends who make yogurt also seem to really like making keifer and swear it;s delicious!

    Mmmm, I love homemade yogurt - I used to make it all through college. So easy, and so cheap! (I used nonfat milk, and would just add more powdered nonfat milk to make it richer and thicker.) Never used a yogurt maker, just did jars of yogurt in a bowl of warm water, on top of the fridge, all wrapped in a comforter. My roomies thought I was nuts, but they liked my yogurt too!
