A full-color, illustrated, and first-of-its-kind cookbook featuring more than 100 inventive, globally inspired recipes to cook and bake with kefir (pronounced keh-FEAR)—the popular probiotic and nutritious superfood, from the daughter of the immigrant couple who first introduced kefir to America who is now the CEO of their company, Lifeway Foods Inc. Derived from the Turkish word "keif" meaning "feeling good," kefir is a tart, tangy cultured milk that is low in sugar, lactose free, and an excellent source of protein, calcium, and B vitamins. Originating from a grain that dates back 2000 years to the Caucasus Mountains of Europe, it is also one of the most healthful natural foods available—scientifically shown to help boost immunity, improve gut health, build bone density, fight allergies, and aid the body’s natural detoxification. It’s no wonder kefir is quickly becoming a staple of daily diets— growing from a little-known regional treat into what the Huffington Post has called "the next Greek yogurt." In 1986, ten years after they emigrated from Kiev, Michael and Ludmila Smolyansky introduced kefir to America and created a food empire, Lifeway Foods, Inc., the top-selling kefir brand in the nation today. Now, their daughter Julie, Lifeway’s CEO, shows kefir lovers and those new to this exotic superfood how to incorporate it into every meal with The Kefir Cookbook. Bringing together treasured family stories of their early days in America and traditional recipes from behind the Iron Curtain with new family favorites, The Kefir Cookbook helps you add a dose of healthy goodness to everything you eat, from soups and dips to marinated meats and baked desserts. While kefir can be drunk straight from the bottle, whipped into smoothies, or used in parfaits and smoothie bowls, Julie reveals in more than 100 recipes how it can also be blended with your favorite comfort foods to add tang, boost creaminess, and elevate their nutritional properties. Try Huevos Rancheros with Kefir Crema for brunch, Raspberry Chocolate Chip Kefir Scones with coffee, Tomato Avocado Salmon Burgers with Tzatziki Dressing for lunch, Cod with Creamy Garlic Kefir Herb Sauce for dinner, and Red Velvet Cake for dessert. You can also whip up a batch of Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins for snacking (or giving), and much more. Practical, original, and delicious, many of the recipes use contemporary flavors and textures—think chia seeds, agave syrup, coconut oil, turmeric—which offer a delectable spin on classics. Julie also includes innovative substitutions for dishes that traditionally utilize other dairy products. Featuring a beautiful, sophisticated design using a cool, modern palette, The Kefir Cookbook is illustrated with inviting color photographs that will inspire you in the kitchen every day.

For optimum probiotic nutrition, it's time to say goodbye to supplements and pills and to bring all-natural, all-delicious, real-food probiotic (and prebiotic) meals into your life. Doctors and nutritionists firmly agree that probiotics are essential for everyday health and nutrition. Probiotics add "good bacteria" to the human gut. They crowd out "bad bacteria" and foster the absorption of nutrients through the intestinal walls. Everyone needs probiotics, just as they also need prebiotics, which make probiotics work. Probiotics also aid in the relief of chronic health issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as all kinds of occasional belly discomfort. They have anti-inflammatory properties, too. Kelli Foster's The Probiotic Kitchen makes probiotic cooking easier and tastier than it's ever been before. Her recipes feature all the all-natural, probiotic-rich foods that are available now, from yogurts and aged cheeses to miso, kombucha, good old-fashioned pickles—and even chocolate. The more than 100 delectable and utterly appealing recipes in this book use these probiotic-rich ingredients to make incredibly tasty breakfasts, brunches, lunches, snacks, dinners, and desserts. The book includes: Lots of big-flavor main courses, like Cider-Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Sauerkraut and Apples, Fish Tacos with Kefir-Avocado Crema, and Mediterranean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Substantial salads, such as Herbed Chickpea and Tomato Salad, vibrant soups, like Chilled Sweet Corn Soup with Pesto, and hearty sandwiches, such as Smoky Tempeh and Kale Caesar Wraps Recipes for prebiotic dishes and advice about how to add prebiotics to your meals, since prebiotics are needed for probiotics to work For busy cooks who eat on the fly, more than a dozen portable and delicious smoothies and similar drinks, plus easy-to-pack snacks and lunches Super versatile probiotic sauces, dressings, and condiments that you can use to turn any meal into a probiotic one, from a zesty Orange-Miso Vinaigrette to a sweet-and-sour Creamy Honey-Mustard Dressing
