    Is there a good primal probiotic alternative to yoghurt or kefir? I used to eat a lot of yoghurt but have stopped since the challenge began. I had a few tsps of yoghurt the other night and I had heart-burn. Not sure if yoghurt caused it, but I haven't had it since.

    My thoughts are beet kvass. You make the probiotic from whey, but I thought that I read someone just used beets themselves and they fermented on their own.

    Thanks Daniel. Actually, I'm making it this weekend. I left some raw milk on the counter about 5 days ago and hopefully it separates into curds and whey this weekend. I plan to use the whey to make the kvass.

    Kombucha.


    Sauerkraut or kimchee or dill pickles. (Fermented and unpasteurized.)

    Dirt. It doesn't get any more Primal that that.

    SS, By extension, are bug-ridden vegetables Primal too? Reason I ask, I throw away the tomatoes from my veggie patch if I find parts of it eaten by a slug.

    I'm not sure Maba, I guess that would depend on the effect the bug infestation has on the microbiological fauna of the vegetable. But then, even it's impact is negligible, some extra bug protein won't hurt.
