Kale Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Farmer Cheese

Our second Thanksgiving recipe creation is a nutritional powerhouse – Kale Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Farmer Cheese. So good. When it comes to Thanksgiving side dishes, most tables are stacked with starchy casseroles, sugary fruit salads and butter-drenched vegetables laced with “cream of something” soup. While they can be absolutely delicious (once again, Green Bean […]


Fall Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

Thanksgiving week is here and we’re so excited to spend time with our families and chow down on some delicious, healthy, kefir-ized Thanksgiving dishes!

Apple Cider Pecan Mini Doughnuts. You’re Welcome.
