As most of you saw on our Facebook page, we spent the beginning of the summer in Germany, visiting Family & Friends and enjoying all the delicious meals, treats and drinks that I oh so missed in the US. While checking out the grocery stores I realized a big difference between Europe and the US and saw that a lot of their products are GMO free, additive and food coloring free, a lot of Kefir and probiotics. I bought cheese, not looking at the expiration date, in the US it lasts forever, right? Two days later it had expired! I was in shock! That right then and there made me think that my family needs to eat healthier and better once we return to the US, along with a lot more exercise and activities.
I found a few products in Europe that I remember seeing at my local Winn Dixie grocery store in Florida and while I was still in Germany I researched Kefir. We had Kefir for breakfast almost every day and I wanted to see if it was available in the US. I found Lifeway Kefir and to my surprise it is available at my local Winn Dixie. Lifeway Kefir is a smooth, tart, refreshing cousin of yogurt, often thought of as the “Champagne of Dairy.” Originating in Eastern Europe over 2000 years ago, kefir’s probiotic cultures have long been enhancing feelings of well-being. Lifeway Kefir contains 12 live and active Probiotic cultures that support the immune system and balance digestive health. It is naturally Gluten Free, 99% Lactose Free and contains No Artificial Sweeteners and is rich in Calcium. Lifeway also only uses milk that comes from cows that are not treated with pesticides, antibiotics, or synthetic growth hormones. The cows are grass fed and GMO free.
I was excited knowing that we will be able to have Lifeway Kefir that is available at my local Winn Dixie for Breakfast every morning as well and knowing that I dish up something healthy for my family this summer. This is a small change and fairly affordable as well. At my local Winn Dixie they had the Lifeway Kefir smoothies in the milk/dairy section and the big bottle comes in 32 oz., perfect for everyone to get a 8 oz. breakfast drink on the go every morning. There are different flavors available from Strawberry, Blueberry and plain to even Raspberry (my favorite) and a Strawberry Banana flavor that the kids really enjoyed.
I’m super excited that I can keep my family healthy and dish up a simple Lifeway Kefir smoothie each morning, knowing that it is the best choice for our family. The kids love the drink, hubby does, too and I love that there is a coupon available saving me money while feeding my family healthy smoothies in the morning. Win win for all.
You can serve Lifeway Kefir just the way it is or add it to your favorite breakfast instead of milk, make desserts with it or get creative with #KefirCreations. I know you will come up with lots of ideas to incorporate Lifeway Kefir into your everyday meal plan to keep your family happy and healthy in time for Back to School.
Have you tried Lifeway Kefir yet? How would you serve it to your family?
