What Is Kombucha And How Do You Make This Health Promoting Drink?

Primal Power Method Kombucha

I was introduced to Kombucha a couple years ago by a friend, and have been a big fan ever since. It is a definitely a much healthier choice than those empty calorie soda’s and soft drinks American’s love to consume today.

So What is Kombucha?

It is thought that the Kombucha mushroom (it’s not actually a mushroom) originated in China or the Middle East and spread via the caravan routes of trade. The first recorded mention of the tea was in China in the year 221 BC where it was known as “the Tea of Immortality”. In 414 A.D. Dr. Kombu from Korea brought Kombucha to Japan to treat the Japanese emperor Inkyo. From Japan, this incredible tonic spread to Russia, Europe, and India.

The Simple Life Baked Apple Dessert Recipe

Primal Power Method Baked Apples

Now I’m not a fan of never enjoying yourself and cutting out all the foods that you like. That is the approach some of the hardcore Primal/Paleo people take, but I have found this approach has a high failure rate.

The Simple Life is all about making better decisions and avoiding extremes, so that is why I especially like this Primal Power recipe. I usually indulge myself after a long bike ride with this treat, and I don’t feel guilty about it one bit. Now I didn’t create the baked apple recipe, come on that one has been around forever, but I did add a couple Primal Power tweaks that I think you will enjoy!

Is Your Pet’s Health a Reflection of Your Own?

Do you know someone who feeds their pet table scraps mainly comprising what they eat – refined carbohydrates? Are you one of Primal Power Method Pet Healththose people? I have witnessed this several times and the poor pet usually resembles a bowling ball and is on every medication that the veterinarian has in their medicine bag.

Interestingly, pets that are fed our (often unhealthy) table scraps often suffer from asthma, allergies, hypertension, poor eyesight and fatigue. Do some of these conditions sound familiar? In contrast, I know people who feed their dogs lean meat, spinach, and carrots, which would be closer to a canine’s diet in nature. These dogs are lean, happy and full of energy.
