Recipe: Basic Kombucha


Recipe: Basic Kombucha.

I quit brewing kombucha for a while there as I felt like it was a ton of effort to do for just my own usage and I kind of got grossed out by how much the smell reminded me of my ex. I guess I just felt unsupported in lot of areas of my life, and brewing felt like an epic hassle for very little reward.

I introduced my boyfriend “J” to kombucha recently and he found a terrific store bought brand called Synergy which comes in a “Divine Grape” variety and we’ve both started to drink “booch” on a regular basis. As a result of having someone to share my interest with, I’m going to grow a new scoby and start brewing again.

As I mentioned previously I’ve been experimenting with making fermented foods in the past few months and the combination of taking a good probiotic, taking kombucha and eating fermented veggies regularly seems to be healing my skin and my other inflammatory issues really radically.

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
