Fizzy yoghurty stuff! Yay!

I love Kefir. Not only is it delicious, I generally feel better when I am drinking it. My stomach problems are generally better when I am drinking it regularly. I have been a big fan and drinker of the Liberte Kefir, but I would really like to try making my own because the store bought stuff is pricey. TELL ME ALL YOU KNOW ABOUT KEFIR! [more inside]

I'll Grind Their Cereals-and-Grains to Make My Bread!

Quick question for the food science-y folks out there: lately, I've been pulverizing a lot of my baking ingredients in the spice grinder before using them in recipes (oat bran, wheat bran, wild rice, wheat germ, buckwheat groats, etc.). Does reducing these ingredients to a fine powder change any of their caloric/nutritional properties? Obviously, they'll be denser and more caloric cup-for-cup, and I'd imagine they'll have a higher glycemic load (not that I especially care about that). But does super-fine fiber still ACT like fiber in the body? Is super-fine buckwheat just as healthy as the un-pulverized stuff? I like the finer texture of powdered ingredients, but if I'm making them less-healthy, I'll suck it up and leave 'em whole.

Can grains and legumes be eaten at separate meals to get their full protein complement?

I don't eat a lot of meat. I'm always combining grains and legumes because their combination gives you the protein your body needs. In his new book "Eat & Run," ultramarathoner Scott Jurek says you can eat, for instance rice at one meal and beans at another and still get all the protein. In other words, they don't have to be consumed at the same meal. I don't have any reason to doubt Mr. Jurek but I'm just double-checking, is this true? Thank you.

Safe, sane, long term low carb diet?

Practical, science-based, safe, sane "low carb" book that doesn't pull any punches? (If simply "Atkins," which one?) I'm looking for a book that is gung-ho, but still spells out what can go wrong and why: I'm three days in to a self-created low carb diet. All sorts of good stuff has happened, but all sorts of disconcerting stuff has happened, too. [more inside]
