[QUOTE=kalli889;1195288]I think some instant and flavored coffees have gluten in them. :-/[/QUOTE]Ewww. That could be the problem. We will see how things are tomorrow.
Things finally "moved along" digestively today for the fist time since Monday. Yesterday I didn't have the butter I had been adding so today I had a double helping. Then the digestive problem resolved itself.
Moral of the story.............Eat Moar Fat!
jesus isn't the fat in whole milk enough?
[QUOTE=Derpamix;1195338]jesus isn't the fat in whole milk enough?[/QUOTE]It was a JOKE, sweetie.
And I was taking the butter to make up for the fact that the only raw milk kefir I can find is non fat (Organic Pastures).
Well, one of the 8 lbs left again. I have a few more days worth of milk left so I'm going to finish that out but then I think I will give it a rest. There is a packet of USWM beef bacon that is calling to me from the fridge.
I think that low-fat, fat-free, kefir thing is promulgated by the same nazis that rape the system of proper full fat yogurt.
I hate that.
That said... I always cream bump my milk before culturing it. Swapping a pint of whole milk for a pint of cream per half gallon.
And there are richer things to do as well.
You can culture full on cream you know. :o Ohhhh my!
Probably also because the people who are "health conscious" enough to know about yoghurt and kefir (as compared to the cheese puffs and twinkies crowd) are people who are still sold of the low fat=health paradigm.
"cream bump" that is a good one. I guess I was "butter bumping" mine.
ANd cultured cream does sound divine.

That's what sour cream is (real sour cream, no additives, of course), no?

"Cultured cream" somehow sounds more cultured than "sour cream".
Well, heck, I didn't read far enough back to see that the decaf was from a restaurant, or maybe I missed it in the posts I've read. You've been hit by crapfood! But it's not the worst thing in the world and I'm guessing, especially since your face is puffy, that you'll lose it quickly.
I like the idea of short one-food hacks/diets/experiments. It sort of makes us focus on everything else rather than food.
ETA: I wonder how a raw milk + colostrum fast would work.
Yep, a crapfood attack. That's what it feels like. Hopefully temporary. It was a touristy little restaurant where I had the suspect decaf, not really very upscale. The GMan was just having a soup and salad since I don't have any food in the fridge other than milk right now.
I really like how I'm not hungry at all. I don't even really have "munchies" for other stuff. There is a chocolate bar and a jar of coconut flakes on my computer table right now within reach and I have absolutely no desire to tuck into them.
Colostrum would be and interesting addition. Organic Pastures does sell raw colostrum at some times of the year.
If I do this again I would want to give it a try with all goat products.

[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sour_cream"]Sour cream[/URL][QUOTE]Sour cream is a dairy product obtained by fermenting a regular cream with certain kinds of lactic acid bacteria. The bacterial culture, which is introduced either deliberately or naturally, sours and thickens the cream. Its name stems from the production of lactic acid by bacteria. . .[/QUOTE]
