This fabulous French toast recipe is a satisfyingly decadent breakfast that’s bursting with nutrients and natural berry flavor. It’s easy to make. We start by soaking a few slices of whole grain bread in a mixture made with Lifeway Kefir. This allows the toast to cook golden and crispy on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside. As we stack the toast, we spread a blend of Lifeway Farmer Cheese, honey, and cinnamon on each slice. This gives it a deliciously sweet probiotic punch. We top it off with fresh berries for antioxidants and a drizzle of honey. It’s sensational!
Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You Actually Need to Know
With increasing research linking the correlation between probiotics, gut health, and immunity, it’s no secret that the integrity of our gut is vital to our health. Although additional factors such as stress, antibiotic usage, and individual health conditions can contribute to the condition of our gut, a focus on healthy food choices is one of the easiest ways to support the microbiome.
Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunity, improve allergies, and improve digestion.
Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school-age years. In addition, kefir made from whole fat milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.Servings: 2-4
