    I tend to drink my booch as an afternoon treat. The fizzy helps keep me satisfied when I have a longer stretch between lunch and dinner. Some people drink theirs with breakfast. I think it is totally up to you.

    As longs as you check the ingredients on their meats and dressings, a salad bar should  be okay. If there's anything there that sees to be canned, ask for ingredients for that as well.

    If you are following the vegetarian protocol you might want to post this question in the Whole30 for Vegetarians section. If you are not then you shouldn't be eating veggie burgers/nuggets.

    Booch is back in my life. Just started the SCOBY from a bottle of GT today. I miss it. I vow to not freak out when I have too much booch and too many SCOBYs to handle.

    Strawberry chocolate mint is a success! I have a potted chocolate mint plant (like regular mint only with a hint of chocolatey flavor) and simmered the leaves in some strained strawberry puree. It's delicious and super refreshing!

    Suth_n..adding the candy during a W30 is not okay. The sugar has no SCOBY to eat it during the second ferment. However, have at it when not on a W30. Don't tell anyone, but I add a tsp of raw honey to my second ferment when NOT on a W30. Just between you and me. ;0)

    Miracle noodles have no carbs and no calories because our body doesn't recognise them as food and cannot use them. If I said to you put this gas in your car but by the way the car won't recognise it and the engine can't use it - you'd think I was mad. Yet somehow humans now think it's acceptable to eat *food* that our bodies can't use. Sorry but this is one of my pet peeves W30 is about eating real wholesome nutritious food that will nourish our bodies not 'stuff' that will provide us with absolutely nothing  so please, please no miracle noodles

    Hi there. 
     
    I am not a moderator, but here are my 2c. Technically they are fine. However, how do I put it nicely? It is not an ideal choice. We want to get healthy and eat nutrient dense food - this product has no nutritional value or health benefits. We want to change relationship with food - this might be a desire to replace pasta ( I say might, please let's not get into SWYPO talk, they are nasty). Zucchini/sweet potato/carrot noodles or spaghetti squash would make a perfect substitutes if the dish is calling for this kind of texture.   
     
    This website made me laugh out loud. "The soluble fiber found in the Miracle Noodle slows digestion and prolongs the sensation of fullness and is an essential part of any weight loss program. You also absorb more nutrients in the foods you eat with The Miracle Noodle due to the slowing of digestion". Really? Meat and fat will give you sensation of fullness, people

    Looks like everyone is rolling along nicely.  I have missed my booch buddies!  I am in booch heaven now that I am back from vacation.  Just before I left I bottled 16 16oz grolsch bottles then stored a few SCOBYs in a hotel and made a fesh 2 gallons.  Now I am home and I have those 16 bottles in the fridge AND I have to bottle the 2 gallons I made before leaving.  Out of bottles though, oops!  Looks like I will have to use mason jars (hope I have enough for that and canning veggies).  I am happy though, I can drink booch till my hearts content (never)!  I think I may just go simple with this bottling though and make mostly ginger and some cherry lime.  I have too much else to do to catch up from vacation

    I just bought some GT's Guava Goddess kombucha to try it (never had kombucha before at all) and it's really tasty! Now I totally want to start making my own. I think I'll buy a bottle of the original unflavored one and start trying to grow my own scoby!
     
    I drank half the bottle this afternoon and am feeling slightly buzzed, lol. "Trace amounts of alcohol" my behind!

    Tonight I FINALLY bottled the mango blackberry lime jalapeño! When I had leftover purée, I heated it and poured it over salmon. Quite good!
    I also made blueberry/ginger, raspberry/lemon/ginger and watermelon/lime/mint.
    Will keep you posted!

    Speaking of babies, I am proud to announce that Nadia (my SCOBY) is in her first trimester. She already has a layer forming at the top of my booch whilst she rests below. Such a proud moment!

    Oh really?  I wouldn't know.  Hubby is anti-Apple so we don't have such things in this house!
     
    I would definitely be down with trying beets kombucha!  Do you just roast the beets before they go in?  Any magical pixie dust secrets?

    Just a little tingle of fizz, nothing crazy.  Raspberry-vanilla very tasty.  Even hubby said "hmm, not bad" after a sip.

    I was actually thinking of printing it all out and highlighting, labeling, obsessing...while I watch Scooby grow.
     
    I hope it's not unlucky to name your Scoby before it's born.  Hatched.  Grown. Whatever.
     
    KB-I was assembling my receipts (I'm an accountant...I keep all receipts) to return the tea until I remembered something.  I like tea!  LOL.
