The Organic Raw Kombucha Experiment

My friend invited me to join her at Whole Foods at lunch today. While walking down the aisles checking out the latest tasty products I ran into something that looked really interesting...Organic Raw Kombucha. It's a fermented tea that is cultured for 30 days with probiotics and vareity of other good for you things, like algae. We chuckled, broke out the Stevia powder and prepped. I shook mine, which by the way, don't do. Its naturally effervescent and so overflows (just like when some jerk bangs their beer bottle on top of yours at a party). I took the first swig and discovered that it tastes exactly like you would imagine the vinegar and food color combination I use each year when my daughter and I color our Easter eggs. I decided to try the Stevia, but its fermented and the natural bubbles were even more excited by the Stevia and it began to bubble over again. It tasted a little better, but its sharp acidic taste will definately require some adjustment. I sure hope that this is good for me, because it sure does taste healthy....

Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.
