Day three juice fast: Kombucha

Today was day three, more of the same today, although I may have had to sneak some food (thanks to there being zero places I could get a juice from!! Have had a bit of a headache ever since, that will teach me)…

So today is my first post in a series of things I’m going to write entitled Things I Like 😀 Which is good, cause there are just so many awesome things I’m liking right now, and I want to share them with you. First thing on my list is KOMBUCHA. I chose this as my first post because I have a scoby on its way and I am about ready to make up my first ever batch.

What is Kombucha? Basically, you make up some tea, stick some sugar in it and add a scoby, and let the fermentation happen. What is a scoby you ask? Basically its a white disc of bacteria and yeast, which will eat up all of the sugar you put in, and release its live probiotics, vitamin B and antioxidants (all the good stuff) into the drink. It looks like this: http://www.anneskombucha.com/what-is-scoby/

To me kombucha tastes like apple cider vinegar, and if you werent wanting to make it yourself you can buy commercial brands in different flavours  in health food stores.

I am excited to make my first batch after trying some from the health food store recently. I will take photos of what I’m doing for you all to have a look, cant wait!! Whats great is that I can have it on my juice fast to add some good bacterias into my belly, and I found when I was drinking the ones I bought I was much less bloated and uncomfortable, which is so good, big time plus for me 🙂

If you want to try a nice one, this is the one I drank from the health food shop. 1551694_10152017616368961_110967138_nI have been reading about kombucha for about a year before I worked up the nerve to even try it, completely glad I did!!!!!

Anyhow, hope you are all having a good night, its time for a big glass of water and a long sleep for me 🙂
