Kefir in Canberra

Home made kefir

You can now buy Kefir in Canberra - no need to make it yourself anymore - Kefir is a cultured milk drink (kind of like yoghurt, a bit like buttermilk, but arguably much better for you) which you can get all through Europe and until now I've never seen it for sale here.

The Belconnen Delicatessen at Belconnen Markets have it in stock. It's produced by Blue Bay Cheese in Victoria and is simply milk, ABC probiotic cultures and kefir culture. Good and wholesome - I add a little warmed honey to my kefir and have it just like that or add it to my home-made muesli.

Tiina's home made muesli recipe (for one person for 10 days)

Mix together:
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup dried fruit (preservative free preferably. Goji berries, turkish figs, dates, cranberries and sultanas are usually all preservative free) - chopped in large pieces
  • 1 cup unsalted raw nuts (any nuts you like and any combination), break large nuts by wrapping them in a tea towel and hitting them with a rolling pin.
  • 1 cup seeds

Store in an airtight container.

Portion size is half a cup a day. I'll have 1/4 cup with a tablespoon of kefir or plain yogurt half an hour before morning exercise then another 1/4 cup after exercise.

The muesli pictured above has barley flakes as well as oats (if you're on heart medication check with your GP about eating oats), goji berries, cranberries, almonds, linseed meal, pepitas and sunflower seeds. I never make it the same twice!

About me

I was a personal trainer and gym instructor for 13 years. Then COVID-19 hit and I just couldn't bring myself to train online. I also left my 'real' job in Canberra to live in beautiful Far North Queensland. These days I'm spending most of my time on a 1Ha hobby farm which is in a 300 acre working farm. My love of fitness and physical activity, good food, nature and animals has come together here.
