...just noticed you're on the BED diet. I'm going this route too, but I disagree with Donna regarding Kefir. There is no way real kefir grains are difficult to use. nor are they dangerous in any way. As long as you follow some extremely simple rule (as laid down on Dom's site - the kefir daddy!) you'll have no problems at all. It strikes me as a little arrogant, not to say profitable, to think that we can improve on the perfect balance contained in real kefir grains that have been used for centuries with wonderful results.
