Someone should know better than to commit to anything these days. But here we are two months later, and you didn't click on this post to read more about my A.D.D. situation so let's cut to the chase:
Kombucha. Oh my goodness gracious... I love the stuff. If you have never heard of it, Google 'Health Benefits of Kombucha' just for fun.
Go ahead. I'll wait.
*taps foot impatiently
OK, forget it: I'll just go ahead and tell you. But seeing as how entire websites are dedicated to all things for the love of kombucha, I'll just summarize. You're welcome.
- Kombucha is a dramatic immune system booster and body detoxifier...Tom Valentine, Search for Health
- Kombucha boosts liver functioning.
- Kombucha is a proven prophylactic against cancer and other degenerative diseases...Nourishing Traditions, p. 596.
- Kombucha is high in antioxidants and has powerful probiotic effects.
Lindsey Lohan drinks it, and don't we want to do everything she does?Um... ok. Scratch that one.
If those aren't reasons enough, Kombucha just tastes good. It's fizzy and refreshing and energizing. And it could just be my imagination, but I, personally, am giving kombucha the credit for my total lack of morning sickness this pregnancy.
Kombucha isn't a new thing for me... I started brewing my own several years ago because my whole family loved it, even the kids! Then I went back to work and lots of the things I used to do around the house fell by the wayside, but every now and then I'd pick up a bottle of GT's Kombucha at the health food store...
Fast forward to early in this pregnancy, and I began suffering from wicked kombucha cravings. I was making daily trips to the health food store for more and I'll just be honest...
The stuff is expensive, y'all!
Me being the frugal girl that I am, I decided to give home brewing another shot. If you clicked on any of the kombucha links above, you may have noticed "ecourses on how to make kombucha" and whatnot for sale at ridiculous prices, and I hate to burst their bubble, but...
YOU DO NOT NEED AN ECOURSE or an EBOOK or a Power Point or ANYTHING cause you COULD read your Nourishing Traditions book (page 596) to learn how, but I'mma gonna tell you right here on this here blog how to make it, and it's easy and costs next to nothing.
But you'll have to wait until the next post because 1) this post is long enough already and my a.d.d. has kicked back in, and 2) all but one (see above) of my kombucha pictures are in my honey-muffin's camera and I need his help.
Come back soon and I'll tell you how to make your own kombucha mushroom. I promise you won't have to wait another two months for it.
