  1. I want to hug you, kiss you, dance with you! I can feel your energy in your words. Thank you for finally sharing your story!
  2. My SCOBY has been hanging out since last year when it started to get too cool around here for proper brewing. I have not been adding any tea as it sat above the refrigerator. This will definitely be an experiment as I start brewing again! No mold but such a strong odor of vinegar of course! I think I will get a bottle or two of plain GTs and put my SCOBY in there and start brewing again. Like you said LadyM, it gets to be an expensive habit when not brewing your own!
  3. My only advice is this: 1. Have fun 2. There are no kombucha failures. Just lessons on how to improve the next time . Kind of like the whole30. Or life Seriously, have a great time with it!

    Carrageenan in my almond milk????

    I say either whipped coconut milk or black. You got this. Be careful with these commercial brands. I was at Whole Foods and found one where the ingredients look GREAT, but further down it states that it "contains 2% or less of the following...". Both sugar and carrageenan were listed. Just FYI!

    Christmas grazing

    Deviled eggs are one of my favorites!
  6. Outstanding results! You should be proud!
  7. I have done that successfully in the past. Do be careful, as missmary cautions, as those concentrates are extremely high in sugar.

    I had lots of questions regarding sauerkraut last year. http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/4019-sauerkraut/?hl=sauerkraut In this thread is a video for making your own. It is easy! However, I must admit that mine is just not as good as the Bubbies brand which we have here. Kombucha on the other hand? I rock my own

    Yoga help

    I could not agree more! I started my yoga practice by attending a community education class. It was budget friendly, and helped me understand the terms and proper form. I eventually branched out to a program for Baptiste Vinyasa Power Yoga and LOVE it. One of the aspects I truly appreciate is the teacher is constantly coaching all of us individually (with hands on correction if necessary). I shared with someone recently that I would not be able to do a DVD or podcast because I need someone looking at me and saying "hey, move your knee to the right" .
  10. Okay, I would mix up the seasonings and put them in a baggie. Not sure TSA confiscates those or not . Then, all they would have to purchase would be ground beef, onions, garlic, tomato paste, chicken stock and apple cider vinegar. While the list sounds long, they probably already need lots of these items for Thanksgiving dinner prep!
  11. If you have the Well Fed 2 cookbook, there is an amazing recipe for plantain nachos. I adore the "taco" meat that is part of this recipe. You could easily make ahead of time (if driving there) or make it quickly when you get there, and use it to top the salad. No dressing required, except some chopped avocados. No need to even make the plantains. I bet the family members would be jealous. Bring enough for everyone .

    Completely off the rails!

    I didn't go completely off the rails as you described, but did go off rails beyond what I would normally allow myself. Way too many gluten and dairy products, and what I would describe as boatloads of sugary substances, including alcohol. The inability to restart is often your body rebelling; if you are like me, you are addicted to these substances. Set a date, and then decrease your consumption over time getting ready for that date. It may help the withdrawal. Note to self: take your own advice . If the cold turkey approach is your preference, then get rid of ALL of the offending items TODAY and start fresh tomorrow!
  13. Pack a ziploc of "crudite"; carrots, celery, cauliflower, and lot of olives. I would then have a tin of sardines as my protein. I would also plan on eating alone , but that is just me! I know my sardines stink, but I love them, and they love me!
  14. I have only cleaned mine out once since May. Must be time again!
