I was very vigilant about food dyes even before I started feeding my kids much more naturally because I saw the difference in my youngest's behavior and mood after having foods that had been dyed. It is a concern with today's parents, but most of us tend to just avoid it instead of voicing our concerns to the food companies. It's time to start making a fuss.

It's very similar to yogurt. It has no sugar in it, but it's not as sour as yogurt without sugar. I've never had kefir, but I think that I'll be learning about more of the ferments and will eventually get there. I put a little agave in my viili to sweeten it up just a bit, but you can also add chopped fruit or anything else you'd add to yogurt.

If I were a traditional reviewer, I'd agree. But professional restaurant critics (or reviewers) have a code they follow, and from what I understand part of that code is to visit a place three separate times and order a certain percentage of dishes off the menu. Since I only visit a place once, and I've worked in many restaurants, I understand that one bad night doesn't necessarily represent a restaurant. They could be short handed in the kitchen. The wait person may be having personal problems.
