As many of you will already know, the only food sources that probiotics are present in are as follows:
Kombucha in Calgary is horribly overpriced and I never liked the taste of sauerkraut, so I've opted for the yogurt. Remember, I always suggest organic animal products since they have the highest amount of nutrients and lowest amount of toxins. However, because I am lactose intolerant I couldn't eat yogurt made from cow's milk. What was I to do?
Lucky for me, I found probiotic sanctuary in the form of Goat and Sheep Milk Yogurt! Here's the skinny: if you are intolerant to cow products, first try sheep products. If you are still intolerant, your last chance is with the goat products. Scientists hypothesize that the sheep and goat genetics are closer to humans than cows, making their milk more easily tolerated in human stomachs. If you are still bothered by the goat products, you may be out of luck and have to resort to plant based yogurts.
I buy my goat milk yogurt from the Farmer's market and my sheep milk yogurt from the Community Health Food Store. Both organic, both unflavoured with no added anything. I eat 8 ounces of yogurt every morning with my oatmeal and fruit and my tummy feels fantastic.
Goats are cute, no?
