    Fellow active brewer here - I've currently got x2 CB jars on the go, plus two hotels, one of which is packed. I'd love some local brewers to pass some SCOBYs on to but there doesn't appear to be a huge market for them here - YET - and in the meantime my youngest son is keeping them as pets

    I tend to stick with fresh ginger & dried hibiscus flowers for flavour, or I'll use a variety of teas.

    I didn't feel like I was a bonafide brewer until I had my first bottle explode on me last year!!

    Oh hey!
    I'm just finishing up consuming our first batch. Second batch is in F1.
    Adding a little blueberry and some ginger when we get to F2. Last batch we did one plain, one with a little ginger, and one with some bing cherry. All were pretty delish.

    The post-workout window is not as critical as many proclaim. It's not like your cells just slam shut after "x" minutes and refuse to accept any glycogen or synthesize any protein.


    Hangry after an hour?

    To the ladies who have posted recently that they're getting periods or spotting mid-pill pack,....I did that on my first one and was told it's totally normal. I talked to my doc about it at my annual in December and he was ENCOURAGED by it!  I have PCOS so the idea that my hormones are doing something is AMAZING.  stick with it!

    Yup, those meats and vegetables are dangerous. You have to watch out for them. Besides, you're missing all the vital nutrients contained in flour!
     
    Saw a man leaving 7-11 this morning (around 8:30) with a giant size red slushie. Mmm, breakfast of champions.

    These gems from today:
    Coworker: "But if it's just for 30 days, won't you gain all the weight back when it's over?"
    Me: "It's not really about losing weight. Also, I'm planning on continuing to eat better foods even after 30 days."
    Coworker: "You can't do that! Eating like this all the time can't be good for you!"
    (later, same conversation)
    Coworker:"You're not supposed to weigh yourself? Then how will you know if it's working?!"
    Me: "It's not really about losing weight." (Maybe i should get this printed on a t-shirt.)
     
    And finally:
    "Oh ... so it's basically Atkins."

    Here we go folks!
    Get those New Year's toasts out of the way at 11:59!
    I'm starting off the 30 in an odd way: in a hotel 'til Friday, working nights. But I brought supplies: cutting boards, knife, George Foreman.
