  • Wow! Great news tomi! 😉 I know how you feel too!! Where it hasn't been 7 years for me it has been several. I really need to do a better job of taking my probiotics. I know you girls keep talking about kombucha but it just sounds utterly disgusting to me! I wish I could taste some. Does it come premade in a bottle? Maybe at the health food store?

    May take longer but i'll just have to stick to blueberries (supposed to be very healing for the intestines) & probiotics. And my primal diet of course.

      My problem has been chronic diarrhea for 7 years! -- well, maybe not 7 now that I think about it. But hey - after 5 what does it matter?

      Kombucha is wonderful! You can buy it bottled in the health food refrigerated section of most grocery stores. I drink a bottle every day! I'm sure that's what is healing my gut issues. That and the probiotic I take every day. My favorites are Gingerade and Cosmic Cranberry YUMMY!

        • I've been tempted by it, but I hate sweet tea. How sweet is it?
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              I've only tried 2 brands - I think some are more tart than others. But I like GTs.

              It isn't sweet at all --- its tart! and it doesn't even taste like tea. You have to try it!

                • Missed y'all too! The problem w/ potatoes is carbs. Well that and chips. For 'fries' I cut them up and bake them with olive oil but chips...damn chips. Yea on your coffee!!! That is awesome!

                      • Thanks for the suggestions...so what exactly is kombucha? Is it a food? A drink? I guess I'm late to the party here...I haven't been paying much attention...when y'all start growing slimy things in glass jars my eyes glaze over & I zone out. Shudder! lol

                            • Well, I bought some kombucha. I liked it. It is expensive. Guess I'll have to look into making my own. For now, I will drink 1/2 a bottle a day.

                              • I haven't tried the ones with the Chia seeds -- just looks gross. I've tried several and haven't found one yet that I don't like.
