Do you drink your probiotic yet?

How to make your own probiotic?

This is my favorite drink before going to sleep. This cool liquid as many benefits like
  • reduce sugar craving
  • creates a protective lining in the intestines
  • increase HCA in the stomach
  • regulate appetite
  • may help with candida
Did you know when a drink is fermented, it means that it's left to sit and steeps until the sugars become bacteria-boosting agents. The fermentation of coconut water is also a great way to preserve the juice for a longer period of time. This gives you the option to make a large batch of it and have a ready-to-drink dose of microflora and electrolight at your finger tip, in your fridge for a long time.

Ingredients

1 quarts coconut water of your favorite brand or a fresh coconut
1 pack of kefir starter from www.bodyecology.com
1 glass bottle

Directions
  • Open a fresh Thai coconut or open fresh pack, I use Zico
  • Save the water in a glass bottle
  • Add a pack of "kefir starter culture"
  • Shake it
Let this yummy liquid ferment for a week in your kitchen. Check the taste daily. Drink and refrigerate.
Reuse 1/2 cup of the culture for your next batch. This time, let it ferment only overnight.
I have been using the same culture for the last 2 years.
Be diligent, it's a culture, alive. You need to get into it's rhythm. Listen to it and enjoy the great benefits in your gut.
Start  drinking a shot glass, increase as you feel like anytime during the day. 
when you get up, before or after mealsor workout .

Do I need a liver cleanse?

The last 10 years, I have been clearing all of my health issues. I experimented on my body by doing liver, gall bladder flushes. What a journey! Trusting, testing, researching.  When do I know if I need  a liver cleanse: - blurry eyesight - itchy feet - knee pain - right neck pain - overweight  and on and on... Anyway the last 10 years, I have done 32 liver, gall bladder cleanses on myself. This one picture is the result of my last one today, February 20, 2013.  Is it easy, no, but quick and inexpensive.. It's a choice, a liver cleanse or an operation to remove all the toxin from the body. We change the oil of our car, what about changing the oil in our body? http://adventureinwellbeing.com/2013/02/with-or-without-a-gallbladder-please-read-part-1/

Smoothies vs juices

This week end, I was watching David Wolf on TV demonstrating how to create Superfoods in your kitchen with the new Nutribullet and he gaved me a new idea. I have been craving for my favorite winter juice of:
  • 10 carrots
  • 2 oranges juiced
  • 1inch of fresh ginger
  • 5 stems of celery
So I decided to experiment and create a Superfoods smoothie with my Vitamix and some of those orange color fruits and vegetables and here is what I came up with:
  • 1/4 of strawberry papaya
  • 2 oranges juiced
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 inch of fresh ginger
  • 1/2 -1 cup of water or coconut water
It was delicious, thicker, not too much and I used less ingredients. Also, I reused everything, no pulp went to the compost.
I love switching my food colors, taste and texture. If I need to eat lots of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables for the rest of my life, let's be creative. Sometimes juice, sometimes smoothies!
