Kefir Berry Ice Cream

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized my body isn’t the same as it once was. It doesn’t take much for my body to get thrown out of whack. My latest bout of seizures really scared me into realizing that I need to start taking care of my whole body. I’m terribly ashamed to admit that I had slacked off. I wasn’t sleeping enough, I wasn’t eating properly, or drinking the right stuff. I made the decision that I needed to take charge and make some positive changes. Lifeway Foods has made it easy to start making some of those changes.

One of the first changes I made was regarding my digestive system. When my neurologist doubled my medication dosage to combat the seizures, it not only affected my brain, but it also affected my gut.
Probiotics for the whole family can get to be expensive, so I started buying Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies. It’s 99% Lactose-Free. Both Ziggy and I are lactose intolerant, and Lifeway is gentle enough for both of us. It has 12 live and active cultures to keep the whole family’s tummies in check and boosts our immune systems. It’s also gluten-free, contains no artificial sweeteners and is rich in calcium.

I enjoy it and drink it daily. My older kids are more picky, and even though the taste is similar to yogurt, they remain unconvinced, so I knew I would have to get creative.

Lifeway Kefir can be found in the dairy aisle at Winn Dixie.

While running errands, we had to stop at Winn Dixie. Since I was running low on Lifeway Kefir, I immediately ran to the dairy section. They had Plain, Raspberry and Strawberry Banana. I grabbed a couple bottles of Plain, along with some whipping cream. My older kids had been away for several days, so I was missing them, and wanted to make a special treat for them. Ice cream is a tasty treat that the kids enjoy, and I love making it for them so I know exactly what is in it.
I also made a stop by a local farm. I had needed to pick up some farm fresh veggies for juicing, but also grabbed a couple baskets of strawberries and blueberries, as well for my #KefirCreations.

Seriously, it’s taking a lot of self control to not stick my fingers in there to get a little taste.

This sweet boy helped out with the yard work. It was in the 90′s, so he got a delicious sweet treat as soon as he was done.

I’ve still been struggling with seizure activity. As a matter of fact, I had a full-blown tonic-clonic seizure.
