Ep. 57: Dr. Guys-Kefir and A2 Milk
We've learned so much in just a few of our interactions with Dr. Guy from Organic Valley. In this episode we reached out to him to learn what we could about A2 milk. Kyle has known some things about it, Joel was clueless. We got the full low down on A2 milk and how it compares to other types of milk and dairy products.
While we were there we also got a lesson on Kefir. We had both heard about it before but didn't understand what it really was all about and what goes into it. Dr. Guy demonstrated how to make Kefir at home (it really is pretty simple) and how he does it on a daily basis when it comes to adding this extra probiotic rich food to your diet. Well worth checking out.
