Day 11, Letter K
[Saturday April 12th 2014]
Kombucha, I have been making this fermented tea elixir as a home-brew and it has saved me so much money. Kombucha in the natural foods section can get pricey.
I really hate to admit to drinking soda (pop here in MN) with all of its refined sugars, caramel coloring and other icky nasty-ness. I’ve been a Diet Dew addict for several years and also a coffee lover. I’m not willing to totally give up my coffee just yet but I can totally replace the soda/pop with this healthy alternative.
What it is:
Kombucha is a lightly effervescent fermented drink of sweetened black tea. Kombucha is a probiotic beverage, claimed to have several beneficial effects on health. Making this home brew is very easy, and it is an extraordinarily anti-oxidant rich elixir. I know Kombucha is not for everyone, for many- the taste is an acquired one!
Subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days–one day for each letter of the alphabet. Start beginning Tuesday April First 2014 with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z. The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day on http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com
