What's the newest addition to my morning smoothie?? Why it's the yogi's yogurt!
Lifeway Organic Kefir!
Hey Nutritious Yogis, did you know, your gastro-intestinal tract is its own nervous system and immune system? This is why it's so important to keep it protected with beneficial bacteria, or probiotics. Yogurt, kombucha, kimchi, and other fermented foods have made the good list this year because they contain good amounts of them, but here is one that you may not have tried before, and it contains an even MORE concentrated amount of friendly bacteria than yogurt and for many, is easier to digest! It’s Kefir, or what I like to call, “the yogi’s yogurt” because of its concentrated nutrition. It’s got a thinner consistency than yogurt and a nice tart taste. Here at Nutritious Yogi, we have a strong love for functional, nutritious foods that are also convenient and delicious. We totally scored with this one!
The friendly little bacteria found in Kefir form a strong line of defense to colonize your digestive tract and keep it healthy, and because your gut contains 90% of the body’s serotonin (the happy hormone), it’s one of the greatest things to eat for depression! It also aids in weight loss with it’s 11+grams of protein, and contains extra nourishment for your metabolizing organs.
