No, not beer. It’s hard to believe that I live in the micro-brew capital of the world, and I’m not a beer drinker. Beervana is actually one of the many official nicknames for Portland. The spirited linguist in me must also share the fact that the word “beervana” is a portmanteau of “beer” and “nirvana.” Impressive, I know. Words, words, words.
Kombucha home-brew!! As I’m often seen walking, sitting, standing, you name it, with my GT’s Synergy in hand, at least three times a week (not exaggerating) someone will tell me, “you know, you should really make your own at home. It would save you so much money.” I know, I know, I know. Ironically, after about a 45 minute home-brew Kombucha discussion the other day, Diane from Balanced Bites sent a wonderful tutorial on how to carryout the process. Great! I’m totally on-board – but…it’s still kind of like the kim-chee for me. I really just don’t want to go through all that effort. It’s very simple. It’s easy. It is also time, and I deeply value my time. The way I consciously use my time and direct it is one of the ways I work to nourish and fulfill myself. And, GT’s Triology is just so darn delicious!
AND…now I’m hooked on KeVita! “A sparkling probiotic drink.” It’s sort of like coconut water kombucha – but super charged and better. So now I’m torn…I think I’ll just go drink a KeVita to sort things though…
**Oh, by the way, I’m a sucker for the “daily cleanse” flavor. I love the extra zing from the cayenne pepper!
I’m curious – any brave home-brewers out there that are energy and time efficient enough to tackle “the mother”? Has anyone tried concocting their own probiotic coconut water a.k.a. KeVita at home? I want to hear your stories! Maybe, just maybe, you’ll inspire me.
