hi all, i thought some of you might be interested in this kombucha molasses idea. I'm currently eating basically once a day and fasting for the other nineteen hours, and feeling a lot of energy. It feels like the body really likes having all this time to 'fast', to cleanse, and just get more 'still'. (less food is more energy, i find, as long as the mineral stores are good, and the food is nourishing)
but while about to have some green tea, I just remembered I have about twelve bottles of kombucha I made in August, that I've corked up like wine, and kept cool. Tried a glass and it's really good. Even better with a little fresh-pressed ginger juice.
thought this might inspire some, as well.
Molasses Kombucha mix
This is a great formula for balancing the Acid/Alkaline ratio in the body and supplies Iron and Potassium. This formula is vital for those with Osteoporosis, Arthritis, and many other debilitating diseases.
1. One cup of well aged (sour) kombucha tea
2. One cup of Organic Black Strap Molasses.
Mix together and store in a glass jar and refrigerate and the hungry kombucha will feed on the sugar in the molasses. Careful of glass exploding if left in the heat.
recommended dosage: 2 to 4 tablespoons a day.
lots more ideas here, including one that sounds really intriguing: adding 'oak spirals' to the kombucha...
I slightly overdosed on kombucha yesterday. :-) It just tasted and felt so good. I probably drank about eight *large* glasses. To the last few I added the juice of blueberries and a bit of ginger. I had unbelievable energy. Worked all day
on a creative project and when I finally went to bed, at 3:00(!) I couldn't sleep and stayed up and studied. The only *bad* side-effect was a slightly rapid pulse. Otheriwse, I actually felt like some new neural pathways were being created.
And all that vitamin B. wow! I remember as a teenager, friends would go get B shots and feel this great surge of energy and enthusiasm. I really believe kombucha is a wonder- "food".
(I have two large sun-tea jars: each one makes three (wine) bottles full)
best to you,
*edit:one of the 'magic' things I've discovered about ginger, is that it somehow helps the body to re-circulate whatever other good things go with it, in order to get the most out of them. as I intuit it, that's the reason it is such a good partner with kombucha.
