  • What a great, inspiring list! Have you posted about Kombucha before? I’m definitely keen to learn more about it. A friend of mine was going to give me a ‘baby’ so I could brew my own but then I became pregnant and wasn’t sure if I should be drinking something so new to my system. Anywho ;) Love your blog, and have for what seems like years! I Check in everyday! Look forward to all your posts in 2012 xx

    • @kristi and miss jessie: glad to hear i’ve got some kombucha lovers out there! i haven’t posted about it before, but i’ll get to work on that. ;)

  • You stole my heart with this post!!! I am so excited to follow it knowing that you are vegan …and new at it:) I buy kombucha at the health food store everytime I go now all the while knowing I would save money if I figured out how to make it …this inspires me!
