WORKSHOPS: DRINK TO YOUR HEALTH

beet kvass + kombucha

Interested in trying something new in the drink department? Looking for healthy alternatives to sugar-laden soda and fruit drinks for you and the family? Or just looking for a fun night out, a break from the norm, or a chance to meet new folks with similar interests?

No matter what the reason, consider attending one of my DRINK TO YOUR HEALTH workshops where you’ll learn how to make healthy probiotic beverages. Beet Kvass and Kombucha in one workshop, or Water Kefir offered separately – all delicious beverages that are extremely healthy and very easy to make, in your own kitchen, without a lot of time, money, or fuss.

BEET KVASS AND KOMBUCHA WORKSHOP —

Beet Kvass is many things besides being yummy. It is an excellent blood tonic, it promotes regularity, aids digestion, alkalizes the blood, cleanses the liver and is a good treatment for kidney stones. No surprise since beets are loaded with nutrients. One 4 oz. glass in the morning is a great way to promote good health. Don’t like beets you say? I can’t tell you how many people have told me that, and after reluctantly tasting it, absolutely love it. I’m betting you’ll be a convert too.

Kombucha is a delicious, refreshing, and kind-of-fizzy drink that is a great thirst quencher and health elixir all-in-one. It’s made from tea, but you’d never know it. It’s an antioxidant, probiotic, and natural detoxifier which boosts the immune system, improves digestion, and helps to eliminate toxins in the body. And it’s not new – it’s been around for more than 2,000 years, but has only more recently become popular in the U.S. with healthy-minded people. You can purchase a 16 oz. bottle at Whole Foods for close to $4 or you can do-it-yourself for a lot less.

WATER KEFIR WORKSHOP —

Looking to add another healthy drink to your arsenal? Water Kefir is a natural probiotic beverage that will do wonderful things for your digestive health. It is incredibly simple to make, relatively quick (compared to the brewing time required for Kombucha), and the flavoring options are endless. Just add fruit juice, fresh or dried fruit, your favorite extract, or even herbs, to create your own blend. Fresh lemon juice and dried cranberries make for a yummy fizzy lemonade. Or add vanilla extract for that tasty cream soda flavor. The end product is typically bubbly and for that reason is enjoyed as a healthy alternative to soda.
