Introducing Kehoe’s Kitchen’s Vanilla Coconut Sparkling Probiotic Drink.

Our Sparkling Probiotic Drinks contain our custom Kehoe’s Kitchen, Australian made HIGH strength probiotic, which we developed under advice from local health professionals.   We selected Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus bacteria which are 100% non D-lactate forming (D-lactic acid can’t be broken down by everybody and excess amounts can lead to serious side effects).  We’ve found our probiotic to be of benefit to our family, so we’re extremely happy to be able to add it to our range of Australian Certified Organic probiotic products.

Perhaps best of all (other than the taste), our coconut water drinks contain no added sweeteners, water, gums, stabilizers, preservatives or starches. As an added bonus, our drinks are low calorie as the bacteria ferment (eat) the carbohydrates for you.

Enjoy it straight from the bottle, mixed in a smoothie or add some fruit for a delicious healthy probiotic mocktail.   Above we’ve served with fresh mint, strawberries and lime.

Be on the lookout in the New Year as we release more flavours to accompany our range of high quality probiotic sauerkrauts, kimchi, vegetable ferments, dips and yoghurts.

Cultured Cashew Eggnog Cocktail

egg nog
A cultured cocktail for the whole family…..
I made this dairy free eggnog for the first time this Christmas for my family and they all loved it.  The basic recipe can be enjoyed by the whole family and sometimes I add a splash of Cointreau to the big kids glasses.
My boy doesn’t like yoghurt, but he will drink my cultured eggnog in a heartbeat.

We also like to enjoy it as a quick breakfast entrée if we’re heading out early or meeting friends for brunch.

If you can’t get our cashew yoghurt, just substitute in any yoghurt to make your cultured eggnog.  Refer here for our stockists. Continue Reading →

Australia’s 1st Certified Organic Raw Sauerkrauts

We are extremely proud and excited to announce that we are now Australian Certified Organic.

 This means that the Kehoe’s Kitchen range includes Australia’s first certified organic raw sauerkrauts, as well as certified organic cultured paleo/vegan tasty cheese and certified organic raw activated paleo bars.

Kehoes Kitchen ACO

In late October of last year (2013) we launched our commercial kitchen to provide healing and nourishing food to the people of Brisbane via our local organic market (the Northey Street Organic Market) with our gourmet range of Organic, Artisan, Cultured, Fermented and Raw, Paleo and GAPS foods.   Now only 11 months later we have obtained our Organic Certification and our products are available through many South East Queensland retailers.

As stated above, our reason for starting Kehoe’s Kitchen was to provide people with food that was nourishing and healing.  This is why Kehoe’s Kitchen have used nothing but the best certified organic ingredients in our organic range from the beginning.  It is also why we have made becoming Australian Certified Organic a priority.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, retailers and online followers for your support.

Please note that RAW sauerkrauts are healing because they contain trillions of living beneficial bacteria.  You can find them in the fridge of your local health food shop.  All room temperature shelf stable/pasteurised sauerkrauts have been heat treated to kill the bacteria (good and bad).  They do this to provide a shelf stable product that can be shipped around the world.  That’s why it’s cheaper. Even if the product says it has been traditionally fermented, it has still been pasteurised and no longer contains any beneficial bacteria.

GAPS Intro FAQs

 

I get a lot of questions about GAPS and what we all ate on GAPS Intro.

My family of 4 undertook GAPS intro together and I basically used my Kehoe’s Kitchen facebook page to make a photo diary of all the yummy healthy foods we were enjoying along the way- Yes, ENJOYING!!

spirooli GAPS intro spag bolMy kids loved GAPS intro.  They were never hungry and my daughter who was 18 months at the time actually threw tantrums when I stopped making soup for breakfast!

Both kids did extremely well and they both gained 5kgs.  This is just a quick post to direct you to my GAPS intro facebook album , answer some GAPS FAQs and to help inspire you in the kitchen on your healing journey.

People also often ask me to recommend reference material regarding GAPS.  I recommend you read the GAPS book by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride from cover to cover.  Doing GAPS is really hard work and reading the book is a great reference guide and motivator.  Dr Natasha’s blog, Gaps.me is a great free online resource too.  You can use control F to search the FAQ page.
