If you like dairy - especially milk - but don't like the health risks try Kefir instead.
Its a milk based drink that has been fermented with these weird little grain type things. It creates a wonderful thick milk/yogurt-like drink with a bit of sweet, a bit of tang and a bit of effervesence!!
It's suposed to do wonders for your intestine - has LOTS of friendly bacteria - and part of the fermentation somehow minimizes the lactose so that it can be tolerated by those who are lactose intolerant.
Dr. Perricone (skin doctor) and other health experts recommend it.
Just wanted to let you guys know about it. You can buy it from your healthfood store in the milk section. The best brand is Helios. You could also make it yourself at home with Kefir grains - but I'm not quite sure yet where you can get them.
Sorry if I sound like an infommercial!!
