I have another item to add to my growing list of ridiculous health fads!
I'm currently obsessed with kombucha.
Well, more specifically, Health-Ade Ginger Lemon Kombucha.
Let's start at the beginning. Kombucha is fermented tea that's loaded with probiotics made from black tea and sugar. It's basically a bubbly tea that's good for your digestion. I am looking for literally anything to help with my constant upset-stomach, and kombucha definitely helps.
I've talked about Green & Tonic before (my favorite health food and drink store in Fairfield County, CT), and they've recently started selling Health-Ade Kombucha. Being completely honest, this is the one and only kombucha I've tried, so who knows if it's my favorite yet. But, I do know that they have a ginger-lemon kombucha, and ginger is one of my all-time favorite foods. I'm absolutely obsessed.
So obviously, I had to try Health-Ade. Every time I go to G&T (once or twice a week), I pick up some kombucha and I can immediately feel a difference in my stomach. Some of the benefits of the drink are improved digestion, detoxification, weight loss, immune support and increased energy.
I've given up soda, and besides the past few holiday-food-driven days, I eat healthy probably 85% of the time, and Kombucha just adds a little bit more to that. There are some times when I just can't drink another bottle of water, and I need some carbonation. Kombucha is a great alternative!
