One of the most important things you can do is to eliminate the junk foods that contain trans-fats (partially hydrogenated oils). According to Know Your Fats trans-fats: Lowers the amount of cream (volume) in milk from lactating females in all species studied, including humans, thus lowering the overall quantity available to the infant; Causes a dose response decrease in visual acuity in infants who are fed human milk with increasing levels of trans fatty acids, which...
My slight aversion to meat and food in general has its roots in childhood. My Japanese mother had no clue about making western foods, and because my father didn't like Japanese cooking, we had some horrible-tasting meals. One of my worst memories is when my mother would make steaks: they were always too well-done and TOUGH. After eating one of these meat pucks it would sit in my stomach like a lead weight.

I usually serve it with mini pumpkin muffins or pita chips. Thanks! Sounds good.
Gosh I must be a freak, I LOVE the taste of beet kvass! I wonder if the PPs who don't like the flavor used enough salt? It doesn't taste as good without enough of it. Once you put the water and salt in with the chopped beets, taste the brine and make adjustments if it's too bland.
