Love of my life over 2 years and still going strong!




Okay the first love of my life is James, but I have to say that runner up is definitely my love for Kombucha Synergy tea. (please ignore the ridiculous picture of Kirsten Dunst in the background). Because I have a few food intolerances (mainly dairy), Kombucha really helps me detox the liver and get in my probiotics that are usually found in yogurt and other dairy. The organic, bottled Chinese tea (pronounced kom-BOO-cha) is cultured for 30 days to produce its “active enzymes” and “antioxidants.” It’s also got authentic—albeit grody-looking—green strands floating in it but if you can get past that, it tastes heavenly! Kombucha is said to have all kinds of healthy properties because of the fermentation...tons of good bacteria, enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, it's a natural antibacterial, said to help detox your liver. I get mine at Whole Foods, People's Pharmacy, or Sun Harvest. The best brand out there is one called GTS Synergy kombucha. Its by far the best tasting! Warning, you might become rather broke drinking these drinks. I am only allowed 2 a week now and its killing me, but when I do get it or when James surprises me with one, I am ecstatic. Silly yes, but it sure makes my day!
