    Beets got a reaction from suzannes in Changes in Menstrual Cycle   
    When I quit sugar and grains (was still eating dairy) in Feb my period totally shocked me. Which never happens. I get very bad PMS and am usually weepy and paranoid for days.
    On my W30 my period took forever to arrive. I felt like I was 40 weeks pregnant and paying attention to every minute sensation in my body. I completely felt my lower abdomen getting heavier, filling up. I felt my mood change.
    Once my period arrived, it was more crampy than the previous one.
    My last period (post W30 but following AIP) was early and my PMS significantly less of an issue. Period also seemed shorter and less heavy.

    Awesome, Lady M! I found a post on one of the big kombucha supply websites recommending keeping a scoby in the fridge. I was going to send to you but I figured you'd find out soon enough!
    I'm going to start. ðŸ˜
    I've been reading, hemming and hawing and trying to decide if I'm going to do CB or batch. I didn't want to spend $ now to spend more later. I finally settled on doing a siphon CB--came to me in a fever dream--joking--and then I saw other ppl do it. Anyway. Now I don't have to mess around with a metal or plastic spigot or a gunked up spigot and I can buy a $5 beer brewing siphon when I'm ready to CB.
    I have a bottle of plain GT's in the fridge waiting for my vessel.

    Grolsch bottles: my aren't they useful! In high school we used to use them for another recreational activity. I can't even remember how exactly but it was something to do with smoking grass.

    Oh dear. Don't feel picked on. I measure in cups as well (though metric is more appealing to the part of my brain that wants my computer structure to be perfect and all my spices exactly alphabetized). Jacques Pepin uses cups in his cook books. Maybe not at home. Whatever.

    I think that's a great idea. I know I'd appreciate it. Like an FAQ and favorite links.

    I'd definitely buy a SCOBY from you, Nadia. I'm sure it'd be packed up very safely--and look cute.
    I'm thinking of ordering one online bc I don't have patience to grow on from GTs.
