Livin la vida Kombucha!

Nothing like Spring time in Texas at the Austin Farmer’s Market!  The flowers are blooming and the Kombucha is flowing on tap!  And if you haven’t had a chance to try Kombucha, you’re missing something!  A healthy, tasty replacement to sodas, Kombucha is a fermented beverage of black tea and cane sugar as it’s base. Fruit juice and other ingredients add additional nutrition and flavoring. It has a slighty tart, fizzy taste and promotes numerous health benefits.


It detoxifies the liver and helps with digestion, by supplying probiotics that can heal a leaky gut.  It also has B vitamins which give energy, along with a tiny bit of caffeine.  But be prudent. Not all Kombucha products are created equal, as some have more sugar than others.  Sensible take away?  Read ingredient labels to find the lower sugar varieties. And enjoy!
