I love my home-brewed kombucha! What have you been making flavor-wise? I always use ginger and cinnamon and then go from there. Last week’s blood orange and grapefruit was my favorite so far!

purelytwins March 16, 2014 - 2:14 pm

we usually just do ginger, as that is our favorite 😉

Would you do a How To on making your own Kombucha sometime, I would love to try this myself.

purelytwins March 16, 2014 - 2:20 pm

Carey, we’ve done one a long long long time ago off our pure2rawtwins youtube channel, we will have to do an updated one soon

wow i really need to get some nikkis cake batter! looks amazing! as far as the bodyweight exercises go, i feel strongly that it is enough. sometimes, we have to move heavy things in our daily lives (think stones or dirt if we are building a path or making a garden etc) even carrying lots of groceries from the market home since i live in the city is a workout! i don’t feel like i need to lift things so heavy that my guts feel like they are gonna drop out just to be lean or fit haha. plus, bodyweight working out is cheap! 🙂

have you guys read this response to that study re: protein and meat consumption? denise kills it again: http://rawfoodsos.com/2014/03/09/new-animal-protein-study/ she debunked and highlighted all the most important parts and i completely agree.

we briefly saw that article from Denise, we did not get to read it closely yet, can’t wait to read it today though 🙂

Laura @ Mommy Run Fast March 16, 2014 - 4:39 pm

Your kombucha looks great! It’s on my to list to try making it. Thanks for sharing my post, friends!

Karen March 16, 2014 - 6:50 pm

I sooo badly want to try Nikki’s brand! I cannot find it here though and shipping is horrid

Jojo @ RunFastEatLots March 16, 2014 - 7:23 pm

There’s CAKE BATTER coconut oil?! Where did you find that I need it!

I shared my pie recipes on Pi Day! Check it out for some vegan recipes, including vegan apple pie with a coconut oil crust and vegan pumpkin whoopie pies! http://runfasteatlots.blogspot.com/2014/03/its-pi-day-friday.html

I really enjoy reading your blog and the way that you research and test different health concepts. I’m curious if you could devote a post to ways to use gelatin, other than making gummies, as well as all the health benefits.
