How to #SupportNepal Through World Food Programme USA

The powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25 was the country’s worst in 80 years, causing unparalleled destruction and the loss of thousands of lives.

Healthy Ingredient Spotlight: Watercress

When it comes to consuming a healthy diet, most people would agree that green leafy vegetables play an important role. Kale currently enjoys the spotlight, thanks to its high nutrient density score, availability and versatility, even if the taste does take some getting used to. But it’s not the lone inhabitant at the top of the nutritional […]


Drink You Colors with Kefir – Yummy Yellow

This week’s Drink Your Colors with Kefir shines the spotlight on yellow – the color of sunshine, bananas, lemons squash and corn.

Easy Ways to Balance Your Belly Bugs

Ten trillion. That’s the number of bacteria, good and bad, that are alive and well in your body. A good portion of them reside in your gut.

It Takes Two: Prebiotics and Probiotics

We firmly believe that Lifeway Kefir is good for more than just […]

Exercise That’s Good for More Than Just You

We know that regular exercise is crucial to long term health. It’s up there with complete nutrition and sleep, in terms of things you just have to do. During the cold winter months, it’s easy to tell ourselves, “not today, it’s time to hibernate.” Fortunately, winter has moved out and spring is here to stay (for […]


Drink Your Colors with Kefir: Ruby Red Strawberries

At Lifeway, our favorite time of year is always spring – when the weather gets warmer, the days get longer and the rain starts pouring. You read that right, we love rain. Why? Well, like the old adage says, with April showers come May flowers. More precisely, May produce. We love spring because it means we […]
