I never thought I’d try Kombucha. It’s a fermented tea that contains a lot of probiotics.
The first time I heard of it years ago, was when one of my brothers bough it from Whole Foods.
He chugged it down in a few gulps and afterward told me he felt sick to his stomach.
So I steered clear.
I thought, maybe I’d get sick if I tasted it.
But then a few months ago while visiting my family I met up with a good friend and headed to the local food coop.
She convinced me to try Kombucha for it’s health benefits.
I took a few sips, but chickened out from finishing the bottle.
It smelled like vinegar but not too strong. It also had a fizzy taste, kind of like when you take a dip into the guacamole and it fizzes and you know it has gone bad.
Fast forward and yesterday I bought some Kombucha with chia seeds (I’m obsessed with Chia) and it was amazing.
Maybe it’s mental, but I felt fresh and cleansed and light. I didn’t even have any junk food cravings.
I don’t think it’s something I will drink on a daily basis because it’s quite pricey, but I will indulge every now and then.
There are some folks who make their own, but that’s more than I can handle at this point.
Have you tried Kombucha?
