Scoby Invasion!

I was introduced to kombucha in 2009. Sadly, my introduction to this life-giving drink was due to my late husband’s terminal cancer diagnosis. During this difficult time I religiously researched alternative, natural, immune-boosting concoctions and gut health in an effort to return his body back to health.

This research led me to a health store which led me to kombucha. I was hooked. He wasn’t so much having lost the ability to handle many tastes after numerous rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. He lost his battle with cancer in 2010, but my journey to health and wellness was only just beginning. 

Eight years later, I not only drink this health elixir on a daily basis, but I now make my own. What began with one tiny scoby that I ordered from Amazon (it’s amazing what you can get from Amazon!) has turned into over 50+ scobies! I avoid wastefulness with every bone in my body, and so instead of throwing these babies away, I often give them to friends or I bake them. Yep, you read that right.  I lay them flat on a baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees until crisp and then I crumble them up into tiny pieces and attempt to pass them off as bacon bits, flax seed, wheat germ, chia seeds or whatever! The possibilities are endless. Once crisp and crumbled, they are virtually tasteless and unless you point them out to your crew, they won’t even question the tiny specks in their favorite dish. 

Believe me. I have 8 kids who will attest to this truth.
