I really enjoyed hearing everyones experiences with spinning classes!
Last week when I took my first spinning class I was a little bit disappointed, but I’ve decided that I am going to give it another try. I’ll let you guys know how it goes!
My four-day weekend has been great. I have been able to just relax and enjoy myself. I have decided that I will be posting some small excerpts from my research paper within the next week or two so make sure you keep an eye out. I really want to get some feedback from you guys to see what you think.
For a long time now I have wanted to try a Synergy drink. Synergy drinks are made by Millenium Products and are organic, vegan, and 100% raw using Kombucha. There are no preservatives, artificial flavorings or caffeine.
You might be asking though – what is kombucha?
Kombucha is alternately known as a Chinese tea, a plant, or a mushroom. It’s a living culture of beneficial microorganisms, and in Kombucha’s case, the whole is infinitely greater than the sum of its parts! Kombucha is delicately cultured. During this period, essential nutrients form like active enzymes, viable probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants and polyphenols. All of these combine to create an elixir that immediately works with the body to restore balance and vitality. Kombucha has been used for hundreds of years throughout the world as a daily health tonic. The culture resembles a light brown, tough, gelatinous disk—and because it’s a living, growing entity, it can regenerate and create new cultures with every batch.
I have been curious about trying kombucha for a long time. Well it was different. Not a bad different just not what I was expecting. I was expecting something sort of sweet… or similar to a juice drink? It was very pungent and I split one bottle over three days. It is an acquired taste. However the health benefits that come with drinking kombucha are many…
- promotes healthy digestion
- weight loss
- boosts your metabolism
- supports your immune system
- has anti-aging properties and promotes health skin and hair
Kombucha may be known by many names in other parts of the world, including Manchurian Tea, Manchu Fungus, Tea Kvass, Mo-Gu Fungus japonicus, Kwassan, and many others. Kombucha has been brewed and drunk since 222 BC!
The verdict? Would I buy this again? Maybe… it was different thats for sure. If I try it again I think I will try a different flavor.
I had this steamy bowl of yum to warm me up.
I have some exciting news to share – I got accepted to my top choice college today. I have been working towards this since my freshman year and I can’t believe that I finally got in! I almost don’t know what to do with myself now! I’ve finished filling out the FAFSA and after I turn it in, I just have to worry about scholarships. 🙂 One of the best parts about the college I have been accepted to is that they are really accommodating towards vegetarian and vegan diets, and have many options for me! They have fresh fruit and huge salad bars all day, every day. Rice milk, soymilk, soy yogurt, soy cheeses, tofu, nuts, seeds and dried fruit. They also have gluten-free options, as well as a focus on sustainable agriculture and make an effort to use all local goods. How awesome is that!? Plus they have these different houses on campus where you can live instead of dorm rooms, and each house has a theme. I’m going to see if I can start a vegan/vegetarian house! I can’t wait till college starts!!
I’m really enjoying my day off today. I’ve got biscotti in the oven, laundry in the dryer and im sipping a nice cup of tea. Tomorrow starts a new semester and the last half of my senior year! Tonight Ive got a zumba class at 5:30 and then my favorite show secret life of an american teenager is on!
Question of the day – Have you ever tried kombucha? What did you think of it?
