Monday’s Workout: 2-mile walk, treadmill in my VFF. I took it pretty easy Monday, opting for a walk and some extra stretching and foam-rolling in the evening. So instead of an intense workout, I went back to Whole Foods and purchased a few fun items, including figure out what is kombucha, taking into consideration some of your suggestions as well!
What is Kombucha?
I had my first kombucha. As an avid tea drinker, I had been wanting to try kombucha months and as luck would have it I never found them for sale at any stores until I went in Whole Foods. I think it was like $3.15 for one bottle so I am not going to make this a regular habit.
According to a report by the Mayo Clinic, kombucha is a fermented tea drink which allegedly also brings health benefits to it’s drinker. Despite these claims, the clinic says no scientific evidence supports them.

I would describe the taste of the kombucha like that of a Mike’s Hard Lemonade or a Seagram’s Stawberry Daquiri. The kombucha has a fizz to it and had a sweet flavor. I chose a mean green flavor hoping it would give me super powers. While the drink tasted good, I have noticed no change in my demeanor. I did, however, notice a change in my wallet. It’s much lighter after buying this drink.
What is Kombucha?
Would I try kombucha again? Sure, the taste was refreshing. But for me it was not worth $3.15 per bottle. If I could find it for even $2 it would be more enticing. It would be interesting to make my own kombucha, but I’m not sure I’m quite up to that challenge yet. But if you are interested, Becca has.
Also in my Whole Foods repertoire… (clockwise: chocolate/nut bar of some kind, nutritional yeast, quinoa, millet)
Have you gone to a health food store and purchased items that were new to you? I find this to be a fun practice every once in awhile. You might find a new favorite or expand your diet.
