    The kefir grains do eat up the lactose (sugars) in the milk and seems to work well for me since I have an intolerance to lactose.

      I don't think I'd be into sour milk... I use sauerkraut right now for gut health. I hope that's enough!

        It's more along the lines of a thin yogurt, no?

          It doesn't really that sour. Mine is probably more mild than a lot of peoples because i am just starting and I also don't think I would be able to drink it if it was that sour. I have read about people who let it sit out till it seperates to curds and whey and I could never do that. I would compair it to liquid plain yogurt.

            The Whole30 is supposed to be dairy-free, as dairy proteins are considered an inflammatory agent in many people. Making it into kefir doesn't change the protein at all. Would you consider trying to convert some of your grains into water kefir? It uses honey or sugar, but that's just to feed the little beasties - there's not much sugar in the resulting beverage, I don't think.

                Hi. I'm a newbie. I found this site about a week ago and have been pretty much paleo all week. Can you point me to a description of Whole30?
                I've been gluten free for about 10 years and dairy free for about a year.
                I really love the recipe ideas on this site and would love to join this thread to get me through the next 30 days.

                  Marthat, do you know how to convert the milk kefir grains into water grains. I looked into both when I started but haven't seen anything on converting them. I will have to look harder because I don't want my grains to die off while I do this. I will also look into how long grains can be stored with fresh milk to keep them alive. Thanks for the advice, a little sad about giving up my kefir but if it is for the greater good I will have to do it.

                    Just found a way to convert the grains, Marthat, thank you so much for the suggestion. I am going to keep some of my milk grains going with milk but I will convert some into water grains. Thanks again

                      Day 1

                      Breakfast. Coffee, black

                      11:30. 1 can of sardines in olive oil, licked it clean like a good kitty!

                      1:00. Salmon salad made with homemade mayo and a small apple. 3/4 cup serving of frozen pineapple
                      4:30. Small serving of lamb stew made with lots of tomatoes, carrots and onions
                      6:00 black coffee
                      7:30. Bacon fried with onions and 2 Deviled eggs. Small apple

                      Exercise so far, 45 minutes of walking, will also walk dogs tonight for another 30 minutes

                      Feeling pretty grouchy due to waking up too early and having too much to do today of the type of things I don't like, i.e. paperwork. Also, ate cheese yesterday, so today feel gross. Tomorrow will be more fun, lots of socializing.

                              Day 1: Bacon and eggs, coffee with coconut milk (CM), black coffee mid morning. BAS with avocado and tuna in EVOO for lunch, with blackberries and tea. Supper was 2 boneless chicken thighs sauteed in ghee with pepper strips and spinach, wilted in the pan drippings. Delicious. Then my Friday night martini - my intentional cheat. It's an unwinding ritual with hubby - I won't give it up. But it's free of all grains, legumes, sugars, sweeteners, all the bad stuff. Pure alcohol and two olives.

                              Supper at a Chinese restaurant tonight with friends. Will be challenging!

                                Okay, the route I walked yesterday wound up being just shy of 3 miles in 50 minutes. Not too shabby!

                                This morning I have my tournament tae kwon do class. I'm whining already! :P It will be the first time I'm doing the class in months -- and the first time doing it fasted (that is, without having breakfast first; my last food was at 9:30 pm last night - strawberries and macadamias). But I am enjoying some black coffee!

                                Have a great Day 2, everyone!
