Hey pb....let's start with I am so sick of yogurt.  I haven't bought the probiotics from the drug store yet.  Was wondering if you had any recommendations of grocery foods that were a good supplement other than yogurt.  Are there any?

Hey Habs :)

I googled and found this...

Most probiotic food is fermented at least partially. A short list of probiotic food choices includes miso soup, some soft cheeses, yogurt products like kefir, sauerkraut and many pickles. Those who feel probiotic food is beneficial are now also interested in prebiotic food. It does not generally contain bacteria but appears to help healthy bacteria grow in the intestines. Prebiotic foods include Jerusalem and regular artichokes, oats, honey, many fruits, and goat’s milk.

There are even breads with probiotics in them now, can't think of the name off hand but I know I've bought them in the recent past.

You really should go to your health food store and get some primadophilus reuteri though....it should be in their fridge as it must always be kept cold.

Organic cottage cheese often has live cultures in it.  Horizon brand is available at most of the grocery stores in my area.

Thanks pb and everyone. I think I will make that trip to the health food store. I am just in that "I can't take one more thing" mode. Cottage Cheese could win me over though. i will look for that.

Just a word about miso. It is forbidden on the SCD. Not certain why, except that it appears to be fermented rice, barley or most commonly soy, which would be carbs. Best I can tell, it isn't addressed in the Maker's Diet, but his use of soy is limited. Just throwing that out there.

FYI, I recently made some miso soup from scratch. My dh and I LOVE miso soup. We often have it at a local sushi restaurant. Now, to be graphic, I've often noticed after eating at the local sushi restaurant that something tears me up. Never put two and two together until I made the soup at home. Both my dh and I had major issues. Again, just throwing this out for what it's worth. Maybe it's the wrong kind of fermented product for some? I dunno... Anyone else ever experience this?
