We’ve Got a Strawberry Crush

While they’re not in season just yet, we couldn’t pass up the bright boxes of strawberries we saw at the store earlier this week.

Tummy Troubles, Be Gone with Lifeway Kefir

“My tummy hurts!” a dear moaned to us over the phone the other day. “What’s wrong?” we asked. “It’s in knots. I feel awful. I don’t even want to move. But I dragged myself to the store to see if there’s any medicine I can take.” Medicine? We thought. Who needs pricey drugs when a creamy, […]

  Today is National Almond Day and we couldn’t be more psyched. The delicately-flavored nuts pair perfectly with kefir when sprinkled on our smoothie bowls, rolled in our Farmer Cheeseball Bites, or as a yummy filling in our delicious donuts.

Foods that Make You Feel Good

What we choose to eat and what we choose not to eat directly affect the way we feel – both physically and mentally. We’re not talking about the sense of pride you feel when you choose a vibrant salad over a greasy cheeseburger, but the physical and emotional changes we experience when we eat real, nutrient-dense food. The consumption of […]

“This strange drink called kefir had changed us so dramatically”

Donna Schwenk’s youngest daughter Holly, was born seven-and-a-half weeks premature via emergency C-section.
