I ate waaaaaaaaaaay too much bad shit last night. Cake and icing and beer and wine. Yeah, it was a great time, but I woke up this morning feel, full and bloated (yuck). So I went to my fridge in search of something that would help me detoxify and quick. To the fridge I prance in hopes to find… OOOOOOOO KOMBUCHA.
Kombucha or “mushroom tea” is a fizzy drink made of yeast and live bacteria. This magical drink has one of those odd tastes that may require some getting used, but generally it tastes a bit like sparkling apple cider or champagne (yummy). AND it makes you, ya know…. go to the bathroom aftre you’ve inhaled an entire chocolate and peanut butter cake du jour. But this is not just a natural laxative. It has many other (and more normal) health benefits as well.
Kombucha has been linked to stress reduction and improvements in liver function, energy, hypertension, digestive problems, HIV and cancers. It has be shown that kombucha has an overall beneficial effect that invigorates the entire body. It helps regulate metabolism, regulates the intestinal flora, promotes cellular strengthening, and balances the pH level of the blood. It contains various acids that are important detoxifiers for the body. So whether you are nursing a hangover, or feeling bloated from the late nigh munchies… you.. are …set! Mix it with your favorite juice to make it sparkling and fizzy delicious! Mind Blown!
When buying kombucha, I like to stick with the variety I find at the local health food store and make sure to read labels correctly. The Coca Cola brand has even tapped into this market and I make sure to stay far away from a monopoly such as this. Make sure that your kombucha is 100% organic and does not have any chems or additives. You can even make it home! Click here to find out how!

You smell like dumpster and your mouth tastes like the carpet at a strip club. You look down at your arm and notice 5 stamps. Fuck. You get up to wash your face and when you get to the bathroom you notice the 3 stamps on your forehead. Your immediate reaction is to make sure you are wearing pants… you’re not. In fact, you have somehow managed to keep your shoes on as you removed your pants AND underwear at some point early this morning…
YOU NEED A DRINK.. STAT … Let me introduce to you the GREEN MIMOSA

A little yoga joke for my fellow yogi’s!
I myself am very guilty of saying a few of these ridiculous phrases
