Thanks to a resurgence of interest in traditional, cultured foods, beet kvass is making a comeback. Celebrated for centuries as a blood and liver tonic, a new generation is discovering beet kvass through cultured food companies such as Zukay Live Foods and the boutique Jewish food purveyor, Gefilteria, as well as through the current popularity of traditional diets such as the Paleo diet and the Nourishing Traditions eating guidelines promoted by the Weston A. Price Foundation. A probiotic-rich, cultured beverage similar to kombucha or kefir, beet kvass is a traditional Eastern European drink made from beets, water, salt and a starter culture (optional). Refreshing and tasty, beet kvass is loaded with enzymes and antioxidants and, thanks to its high electrolyte content, it is a deeply hydrating beverage.
Whey is a form of protein derived from dairy that is a “complete” protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids. The essential amino acids are ones that our body doesn’t produce by itself, so we need to get them from food sources. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, helping to renew cells, build muscles, restore and heal.
Whey protein – I am a huge fan of it and believe that it should be part of your eating plan as well. Why? Because whey is great for building up the immune system and is the perfect protein, packed with every essential amino acid your body needs to help it soar through the day. So, what exactly is whey protein? Interestingly, it’s a by-product of cheese manufacturing. To make whey, pure amino acids are extracted from the cheese’s cast-off milk proteins, leaving the sugar (lactose), casein, fat and cholesterol behind. The resulting whey, which eventually is converted into powder, is simply the purest, cleanest, most easily absorbed protein source around.
