Last year in March, I was introduced to Kombucha. I was in Miami at a farmer's market and being drawn to cool bottles, there was a table that was selling this stuff. I had no idea what it was, but I liked the bottle (I'm such a girl). I tried a sample and decided it was worth the $6.99 to drink this kombucha stuff and have a cool bottle to save.
After I got back from my trip, I decided to research more about kombucha. I'm one of those people who will do research for fun. I learned that it was an ancient probiotic drink. As someone who is gluten sensitive, I blame antibiotics for my affliction, helping all of my good gut bacteria seemed like a good idea. Plus, I like the way kombucha tastes.
I was buying kombucha at the store for a while, but that got really expensive at about $3.69 a bottle. They say you want to drink a bottle per day. My sister suggested that we start making our own kombucha. I was afraid to do it at first, but soon, I found out that it's as easy as making tea.. with some extra stuff.
I've been a vegetarian for 9 years and recently became a whole food, plant-based vegetarian. I used to eat eggs and dairy on occasion. Recently, I learned that eggs triggered my migraines. It's so funny to me how all these years I'd get headaches and feel nauseated and blame it on the weather or PMS, when all this time it was the food I was eating! I stopped eating dairy after watching this talk by Dr. Neal Barnard on Youtube. People give up animal products for different reasons and whatever reason you choose, you should make sure it is right for you. Now, I sleep better and just overall feel better...and so can you.
