Day 44 For the Love of Kombucha

For breakfast today I had a smoothie with banana, frozen blackberries and dragon fruit:

Lunch was significantly less exotic, just boring old hummus on rice cakes + salad. 
But here's a picture of the pigeon sitting on her babies:

Dinner was Sunshine Burgers from Robin Roberston's book Vegetarian Comfort Food and a salad of red and green cabbage, apples, carrots, walnuts and a splash of rice wine vinegar.  Can't share a copy-righted recipe, but can say that these burgers contain beans and tofu and sunflower seeds and some veggies.  Lots of protein!

Oh and by the way, I am totally addicted to Kombucha Tea.  Last week I drove out to the edge of the world to score FIVE full-size bottles of the stuff.  I'm trying so hard to ration it out slowly, but I really just want to sit down and guzzle.  I am thinking I need to learn to make kombucha myself.   Wonder if there is any chance my Kombucha man will give me some of his scoby?  (he, he the scoby is the culture.  I love that word: scoby, scoby do how are you...)

Kombucha = Yum + Feeling Groovy


  1. Okay Em, you got me really curious about kombucha and that pretty dragon fruit. I looked for the fruit today at the grocery store, but to no avail.

    Then I started hunting down kombucha, hoping against hope, that I wouldn't have to drive to the edge of the world to find it. ;)

    I had just about resigned myself to the fact that scoring kombucha would mean a special trip to Whole Foods, when what before my wandering eyes did appear............10-15 different flavors of raw AND organic kombucha!!!

    I chose one that had added strawberry puree to it, because I'm not quite sure what to expect. What is it about this stuff? Why are you so addicted? Is it the flavor OR the way it makes you feel?

    I'm saving mine for in the morning because I have no clue as to whether or not kombucha has caffeine or not.

    I was just browsing Robin's book the other day on Amazon. I want her latest book 1,000 Vegan Recipes. Do you have that one too?

    Okay, pigeon grandma, I'll report in on the kombucha in the morning!

  2. I need to see if I can have kombucha shipped to me from somewhere.
