Woo, Fizzy!

Pre-treadmill, I had a little salty snack of this stuff -
Yeah, I love that stuff. Pretty much anything pickled is fine-by-me. (don't ask about pickled pigs feet, I've never tried them.. but honestly, I'd probably love it!)

I had a whole cup of it.  Do you know how many calories are in a whole cup?  10! 
And you can prob cancel out 3 or 4 of those calories, because I pick out the red peppers. Blech! 

After treadmilling, I decided to try this healthy sucker - 

Ok, I won't deny it. This stuff is strange. But I love strange. 
Kombucha is fermented tea, and this particular flavor is ginger. 
Have you ever had sparkling apple juice? You know,  like fancy-pretend-champagne time for kids? 
Well, this is just like that!  Its VERY strong on ginger, I mean real, tangy, sour delicious fresh ginger. And its carbonated (due to the fermenting), which, despite the warning on the label, I did not expect at all.  I really liked it. I got another one too, which is just plain Kombucha with no flavor, so we'll see how that goes.  

I don't have pics of dinner, but it was just a turkey & pickle sammy, with 2 kiwi. Delicious, but not exciting enough to take pics :-)  Stay tuned though,  I have some new recipes to try out this weekend!

Interesting review. I'm not sure I would try it, but I do love sparkling fruit juice! so maybe....

heh yah, you have to like STRONG flavored things.. its pretty intense, and almost bitter.

I guess I would say... if you like turnips, beer, vinegar, and really strong fresh ginger... then maybe you'd like it.
