I've been making my own kefir for about 3 months now and my kefir grains have grown to about 6 times what they were on arrival. I now can get a half gallon of kefir in about 30 hours. It's SO tasty even my hubby likes it. You can blend it with frozen berries if you want a fruity flavor but I really like mine plain or sometimes with a touch of raw honey and a few drops vanilla extract if I'm in a sweet mood.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Start by going through your kitchen cupboards and reading labels. Toss out the things that have too many unknowable and unpronouncable ingredients. If you can't afford to throw these things out just make up your mind to not replace them with the same stuff when you run out.

Learn how to make one new thing from scratch--like mayonnaise or salad dressing. Let the cold cereals run out and replace them with hearty traditional things like eggs, bacon, oatmeal and other whole grains.

Begin replacing sugary stuff with whole, fresh fruits and white refined flour with whole grain flour.

Slowly learn to drink coffee and tea without sugar--try stevia extract instead (a little at a time)

Search websites for recipes and discussions about REAL food; WHOLE foods. Watch the teaching videos.

One small change at a time. Hope this helps

I just read half of the clean eating book. I know it's gonna be hard but I'm going to do one step at a time. I'm going to just clean up my cooking and eating. Not everything at once but a few things at a time. Any suggestions on what will be easy to change first?
