Milk Kefir grains

I have some milk kefir grains that I have had for about a month now. I bought them online and have been using them with raw milk from biologically farmed cows. Every few weeks I have too many grains (as it grows). So when requested I may not have some to give straight away. I live in Dargaville, and can do post or pick ups.  This is where I got them from -

Allergy Friendly Food Advise

I've been navigating allergy friendly cooking/baking since my son was 3 months old and developed eczema which was related to food allergies/intolerances. This prompted me to investigate thoroughly diet and food and the impacts it can have, and working out how to make tasty, amazing food with substitutes! I'm willing to share my recipes, ideas, experiences and tips for cooking gluten free, dairy free, nut free, refined sugar free, egg free (though that is no longer a problem for us now) and anything else free that you can think of! Bread, cake, muffins, brownies, pancakes, hot cross buns, pizza bases, savoury muffins, crackers and lots more.  If you've been struggling with food intolerances and allergies, you are not alone! I am also willing to do some baking for you if you prefer not to do it yourself and have an event coming: provided I get plenty of notice and there is some way to easily get it to you :)  I am based in Towai so happy to come to you and help with baking if you are in Kaikohe/Kerikeri/Whangarei or that kind of distance from Kawakawa. Otherwise I am happy to email my recipes if you prefer to try them yourself

Help and support offered for when you have a premature baby

When the baby arrives way sooner than expected this can turn your whole life upside down. My youngest daughter arrived as  a 4 month preemie now 24 years ago. I had 3 other small children who all came the normal way at healthy 8+ pounders. So I have first hand experience what it feels like when you're suddenly faced with all that comes with premature babies! Happy to be of support and for you to pick my brain on what I found to be useful, it can be a daunting journey!
