  • More Energy, Lose Weight, More Fun Anyone?

    I know it’s hard to lose weight.  Everything is stacked against you.  There’s not enough time to exercise or prepare fresh meals.  Everything is go, go, go.  I get it.  You are just trying to get by each day.  But let’s say you could control more of what you buy and eat.  How do you think that would make you feel?

    If you just eliminate these 3 things for the next 30 days, you will lose weight, have more energy, sleep like a baby, feel less bloated, less inflammed, etc.  I have been living this way for many years and I feel like a vibrant 20 year old.   I am never tired during the day, am happy, love what I do, have enough energy to exercise (1 to 2 hours a day, 5 to 6 times a week) and get a deep 7 1/2 – 8 hrs. sleep virtually every night.  YOU can have this too!

    Here we go:      NO SUGAR (Including fruit except for an organic apple or berries just after a meal)  

                               NO STARCHES (Including gluten [breads, pasta, soy], rice, corn, potatoes, yams, squash)

                               NO ALCOHOL (Sorry wine lovers)

    All of these 3 things convert to sugar.  Sugar in this form is your enemy.  Don’t worry, your body will convert protein, complex carbohydrates and fats into glucose (sugar) for fuel.  You will not be glucose depleted.  Your energy will be sustained at a constant level throughout the day.  Forget those afternoon naps or needing to pump yourself up with energy bars or drinks.  You won’t need those anymore.

    It’s so simply yet people tell themselves that they CAN’T do it.  You’d be surprised.  It’s a conscious choice.  Look at it this way ….. if it doesn’t work for you after 30 days then go back to your old habits.  However, if you do like the results, you will make it a way of life.   That’s what happend to me.

    By The Way - I do see a Naturopath in the San Diego area named David J. Getoff (www.naturopath4you.com / 619-441-8700).  I see him every 3 months for the past 10 years and pay him to keep me healthy.  Not only does he have a private practice but also lectures MD’s and PhD’s on nutrition and supplements and teaches at the Price Pottenger Nutrition Foundation in Lemon Grove.  [This is a great place to learn about nutrition, supplements, bodycare & household products, etc. and the cost is minimal.  Check out www.PPNF.org for upcoming classes.  There is so much good information that I keep retaking the 6-week course.  Maybe I will see you there!]

    On David’s website there is a 30-day “Diet” – http://www.naturopath4you.com/21DayDiet.htm that goes into more detail.  I practice this on a daily basis and have been for the past 8 years.  I think you will find that you will never want to go back to your old eating habits again because IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE HEALTHY!  

  • Kombucha on Tap

    Kombucha on tapEvery year there seems to be a new cutting-edge diet or exercise that emerges and tells us that, what we are currently doing needs a change.  Unfortunately, many of these health fads fade away as the newest philosophy or study takes the stage.  Let’s be honest, it’s hard to keep track of all the health dos and don’ts we read on the Internet.  Sometimes, they are better off being ignored.  One trend that shouldn’t be ignored, but in fact recognized is Kombucha on tap.  It is growing in popularity and popping up in health food markets all over the United States.

    We are proud to offer Anne’s Kombucha onb Tap throughout San Diego, Temecula and Southern California.  See where it’s offered on tap and learn more about www.KombuchaOnTap.net.

    Here is why:

    Health food markets have discovered a social aspect of drinking Kombucha among the health conscious demographic.  Yogis, athletes and health conscious people are getting together and enjoying pints of Kombucha similar to the way many enjoy pints at the pub.  It’s a way to be social without experiencing the detrimental health effects of alcohol.  This trend has grown so much over the past few years that even bars are carrying it for the social individuals who don’t want to get intoxicated.  Just like beer, Kombucha tastes more sparkling and alive on tap.  Unlike beer, Kombucha has many health benefits.

    Kombucha on tap

    Kombucha from the tap provides you with all the same wonderful nutrients but with much more effervescence, than Kombucha from the bottle has to offer.  When you drink from the tap, you are taking in all the nutritious acids and friendly bacterium naturally existing in Kombucha.  You are also helping the environment because many places that offer Kombucha on tap provide you with a reusable or recycled container.  It’s a win-win, protect your body and protect the environment.

    Kombucha is perfect after a morning yoga session or with friends on the weekend.  If you’re a Kombucha fan or if you’re in the mood to try something different and healthy, grab a glass of Kombucha on tap and taste a drink that everyone is craving.

  • How to Pack Some Protein Rich Veggies into Your Diet

    Protein is essential to add to your diet for a variety of reasons – obtaining essential amino acids, weight loss, muscle tone, hair, skin and nails or even to improve your health overall.  Incorporating  protein rich veggies into your diet may be tough at first, but only if you don’t know which types of protein to look for.

    Including protein into your diet does not mean that your diet has to be bland.  It can be full of rich flavor and essential nutrients.  Zest up your diet with some of these protein packed choices such as wild fish, free-range chicken, grass fed beef (birth-to-death), and raw dairy products (usually available at your local Farmer’s Market).  For carbs pick those that are high in fiber, like some tasty whole grains from heirloom seeds such as Ezekiel (sprouted grain bread), nutrient-dense organic vegetables, seeds and nuts.

    Vegetables often get overlooked when it comes to filling up on protein, because it’s hard to know which vegetables exactly are great protein choices.  It can get a little tricky when it comes to knowing which vegetables actually contain a healthy dose of protein, but these surprisingly protein packed greens are sure to be some nutritious pick-me-ups.

    How to Pack Some Protein Rich Veggies into Your Diet by Anne's Kombucha

    Topping the list of protein rich veggies to make sure are in your grocery cart are beans (in a limited amount), cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, artichoke, kale, brussel sprouts, asparagus and superfoods such as spirulina, chorella and blue green algae to name a few.  Some of these protein rich veggies may already make it onto your plate, but they may just stay there for decoration.  A great way to simmer up to these protein rich foods is to lightly steam them, and add flavorings such as garlic and herbs to give them just the kick they need.

    Protein rich veggies pack nutrients into your diet to give you a kick into your diet without letting you have to suffer the effects of what you are missing from not having sufficient protein.

    1. Pack some protein rich veggies to snack on during the day.  By bringing some broccoli with you as a snack, you’ll be more apt to munch on it throughout the day.  You can also include sunflower seeds, almonds, cashews and Brazil nuts that are high in good fat and protein to keep you satiated throughout the day.

    2. Lightly steam some veggies in a garlic and herb blend.  By lightly steaming the veggies, you won’t lose all the protein but still make them appetizing.  The garlic and herb sauce will make sure that there is no protein rich veggies left on your plate.

    3. Call it a wrap!  For a quick and easy lunch packed with protein filled veggies, try adding some to a wrap for a quick and fulfilling way to get your protein and vegetable quota for the day.  Using Nori Sheets provides you with tons of trace minerals from this seaweed vegetable.

    4. Drink up!  If it’s a hot summer’s day and you’re looking to quench your thirst, why not blend up some protein rich veggies into a power shake.  I use a mineral broth as my base in lieu of orange juice or apple juice which are both loaded with sugar.

    5. Go raw.  There’s no shame in simply reaching for some protein filled veggies in the raw.  Enjoying some dehydrated kale chips is a great way to get your fill of protein while enjoying the end of a warm summer’s day.

  • Feel Healthy This Spring

    Feel Healthy This Spring:

    With spring upon us, why not spring forward into a healthier you?  Warmer weather plus additional daylight hours plus the growth of new vegetation equals revitalization from those long winter months.  Springtime can signify a new beginning for our happiness and health!  So rejuvenate and feel healthy this spring by exercising, meditating and eating healthy!

    Springtime Exercises:

    Gardening:

    By pushing a lawn mower, pulling pesky weeds, or planting seeds, gardening increases activity and beautifies your outdoor area.  With the ability to burn up to 350 calories per hour, gardening gets you healthy while giving you an excellent excuse to enjoy the outdoors.

    Swimming:

    Whether you want to brush up on your freestyle stroke or take a water aerobics class, swimming screams refreshing springtime activity!   Not only will it get you excited for those upcoming summer months but one hour of swimming can burn up to 600 calories.  Whenever possible, always opt for saltwater swimming…the ocean or a saltwater pool (non-chlorinated).

    Anne's Kombucha recommends running this Spring

    Running/Hiking/Biking:

    Tired of the gym?  Springtime gives you the perfect excuse to move outdoors!  What better way to feel like a healthier you than by running, walking, hiking or biking?  With every step or pedal, your body will feel rejuvenated by that much needed sunshine.  Need a little inspiration – start off with some springtime tunes such as Sheryl Crow’s “Soak Up the Sun” or purchase some stylish workout apparel.  Nike’s line “Nike Sphere: Warmth Without Weight” is great for layering and essential for the springtime season.

    Springtime Meditation:

    Spring provides a wonderful opportunity to clear our home of clutter.  But why stop there?  Why not clear our mind through meditation?  By meditating, we can reduce stress and strengthen the connection between our body and mind.

    With springtime providing the perfect backdrop for reflection, outdoor meditation can give us the simplicity, comfort and tranquility that we desire.  All we need is about 10 minutes a day of meditation.  Whether you are walking or sitting, give yourself a few minutes to let go, breath, and live in the moment.

    Springtime Healthy Eating:

    Springtime screams eating healthy by taking advantage of the abundance of seasonal vegetables!  Think Green! Asparagus, broccoli, spinach, and green beans can help you feel energized, slimmer, and of course, healthier.  Take advantage of your local farmer’s market for the freshest vegetable and fruits.  Need help with recipes?  Look no further than the Internet.  Seasonal dishes, for any culinary ability, can be found on the web!

    What meal would be complete without the perfect springtime drink?  Fruity and flowery teas awaken the senses.  Great springtime teas are peach, strawberry and blueberry.  Anne’s Kombucha is a great local company that makes fresh springtime teas, such as ginger, cranberry lime, pineapple, watermelon ginger, blue green algae or just plan original.

    Springtime is a chance for growth, new beginnings and a healthier us.  Spring forward into a healthier you through exercise, meditating and eating right!  Feel healthy this spring!

  • What Is A SCOBY?

    What is a SCOBY you ask?  SCOBY stands for Symbiotic Culture of friendly Bacteria and Yeast.  Sounds great, right?!  But with all the healthy drink choices you have, and all the marketing techniques why should I choose this?  And what does it really do for me?  Probiotics are recommended to keep up the good bacteria in our bodies, that help break down food, and much more.  The SCOBY metabolizes the organic sugar and the caffeine in the organic green and black tea resulting in a beverage that contains billions of probiotics, vitamins such as B, C, amino acids and enzymes.  The healthy benefits that SCOBY offers is impressive.

    What is SCOBY? Let Anne's Kombucha enlighten you.

    We all know that healthy living awareness has quickly entered all of our lives.  Healthy alternatives, all natural and organic protein shakes, delicious teas and organic tea leafs to name a few.  We make healthy choices every day and one of these can be found in Komboucha.  This drink has a SCOBY in it, which is very beneficial for everyone.  The SCOBY is rubbery in texture, looks like an off white/white pancake.  This substance takes your delicious tea and turns it into a vitamin, mineral, and healthy, living organic acid your body needs and welcomes.  To further your knowledge on the question on, “What is a SCOBY?”  keep reading.  In the United States we have identified amazing benefits found in this tea:

    Detoxification:  The enzymes reduce the pancreatic load and ease the burden of your liver.

    Healthy Joints:  The glucosamines within the SCOBY found in Kombucha can be used to prevent arthritis.  With a natural relief that can be comparable to NSAIDs the use of Hyaluronic acids help with lubrication of connective tissues.

    Digestion health:  The probiotics offered within the SCOBY helps fight harmful yeast, promotes healthy bacteria within your stomach lining and other digestive tracts, as well as aides in mental clarity and benefiting your mood.  Eating healthy benefits you in more ways than we realize!

    Immunity boost:  With all the great things this drink offers, this sums it up.  With everything wonderful offered in this drink, you will have a better immune system and your body will have an excellent source of amino acids, enzymes and other products, otherwise not attainable without taking a supplement.  So next time someone asks you, “What is a SCOBY?” point them to this blog post, and then skip on over to Anne’s Komboucha for a delightful refresher with many benefits!

  • Healthy Drinking

    Healthy food choices to one person may not be healthy in the next person’s eyes. Healthy drinking is no different. In this article we are going to touch on healthy drinking in all forms. Healthy drinking starts with water. Good ol’ H2O should be our go- to beverage when we need to quench our thirst. Water supports all of our cells, tissues, and organs while regulating our body temperature and aiding in eliminating waste. There is no doubt about it, no matter what your views are on drinking healthy, water is on the list. Tea and coffee are healthy options, some more than others for both categories, but mostly they are not too shabby. Tea has less caffeine per cup than coffee, and there are different types of tea like sleepy tea, tea for when you are sick, fruity tea, green tea, white tea… the list goes on. Coffee can be served in many different forms, but there are not different flavors of coffee or espresso unless you “dress it up” with flavored syrups. The difference in coffee is how you serve it. Black coffee, latte, Americano, whatever tickles your fancy. Caffeine is good for us, but in a limited amount daily. You don’t want to drink a pot of coffee because it is not good for your liver to process that much caffeine in one day, and you will most likely feel anxious and restless.

    Healthy Drinking tips from Anne's Kombucha

    Another favorite is coconut water, which has become very popular over the last couple of years. The reason for its popularity is because it hydrates you better than water. Coconut water has more potassium than a banana and can counteract things like hypertension. Depending on what type or brand you purchase, it has little or no sugar, sodium, and zero calories. If you are looking for a healthy alcoholic beverage, try adding coconut water to your drink to sweeten it up, and hydrate you at the same time! Another good idea is to try adding Anne’s kombucha to your champagne or your martini for a little different taste with some healthy drinking benefits! Wine is going to be your best alcoholic choice when it comes to healthy drinking because it will keep your friendship with the scale, can improve your memory, and it doesn’t have a ton of sugar added to it. It is important to remember that too much of something can turn bad, if we overindulge. Other options for healthy drinking are veggie and 100% fruit juice, and a few types of milk. Of course there are more options we did not cover, but if you would like to learn more about drinking healthy visit our site at AnnesKombucha.com!

     

  • Popular Kombucha Flavors

    At Anne’s Kombucha we are kombucha connoisseurs, so we want to introduce you to you some popular kombucha flavors.  Of course Anne’s Kombucha is our favorite kombucha so we will take you through some popular kombucha flavors that we make, but there are some other flavors out there that we enjoy as well.  There are many varieties of kombucha and all of them have a unique flavor and quality based on the brewing process and ingredients.  Enjoy!

    Popular Kombucha Flavors brought to you by Anne's Kombucha

    Ginger

    Ginger is not only a popular kombucha flavor for its unique flavor profile but also for its healing abilities that have been used since ancient times.  For over 2000 years, Chinese medicine has recommended the use of ginger to promote energy circulation in the body and increase our body’s metabolic rate. Other reported benefits includes effectiveness for reducing nausea and digestion issues, as well as improving absorption of stimulation of essential nutrients in the body.  Ginger is also an anti-inflammatory and a natural powerful painkiller.  It strengthens the immune system.  The organic freshly pressed ginger root in Anne’s Ginger Kombucha adds spice and slightly sweet notes to this kombucha tea.  This was the very first kombucha flavor we made over 6 years ago and is still our personal everyday beverage.  We just love ginger!!!

    Blue Green Algae

    Blue green algae is one of most nutrient dense foods on the planet and it has been dubbed as a superfood.  In Anne’s Kombucha we include Wildcrafted Organic Klamath Blue Green Algae, USP Certified Organic Spirulina, and Super Soft Cell Wall Chlorella all of which contains vitamins, minerals, simple carbohydrates, lipids and biologically active enzymes that are great for your health.  Blue Green Algae is 70% vegetable protein and contains a high concentration of nutrients – over 65 vitamins, minerals and enzymes and the complete spectrum of eight essential amino acids and ten nonessential amino acids…and they are all easily absorbed by the body.  It has a slightly natural sweet taste, beautiful blue-green color.  Our personal experience has been to drink half the bottle 45 minutes to 1 hour before working out and the remainder within 60 minutes after exercising.  Love it and love the results!

    Cranberry Lime

    The combination of organic cranberries and organic lime in this popular kombucha flavor is the perfect combination to wake up your senses and energize your day!  Cranberries are full of antioxidants, which protects cells from damage by unstable molecules called free radicals.  Drinking cranberry juice has been shown to block urinary infections by binding to bacterial so they can’t adhere to cell walls.  The National Institutes for Health is funding research on the cranberry’s effects on heart disease, yeast infections, its potential against cancer, stroke and viral infections.  We use organic dried cranberries lightly coated with organic sunflower oil and organic apple juice to balance the tart flavor.  We think this is one you will enjoy especially as an afternoon non-alcoholic beverage.

    Pineapple

    We love pineapples for their sweet and tart tropical flavor, so it was a no-brainer to infuse this awesome flavor into our Kombucha.  We add organic raw pineapple, blended in our Vitamix and mix it with our Kombucha Tea base to make this flavor stand out.  In addition to being a popular and delicious flavor, raw pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese, a mineral necessary to build bones and connective tissues as well as bomelain enzymes to help prevent bruising and reduce age spots and fine lines.  It lessens the risk of hypertension, maintains good eye health, prevents plaque and keep teeth health, is effective in reducing constipation and irregular bowel movements.  Pineapple contains enzymes that make skin elastic, improve skin hydration, and remove damaged and dead cells.  Thus, it helps us achieve a clear and glowing complexion.  It’s a wonderful flavor for non-Kombucha drinkers or children who are not used to the sweet and sour taste of a tradition Kombucha Tea.

    Watermelon Ginger

    There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a nice cold watermelon, and the same goes for this refreshing flavor of Anne’s Kombucha.  One of the main health benefits of watermelon is its status as a powerful antioxidant, found in vitamins A & C, which helps to neutralize free radicals that can lead to inflammation, general sickness and chronic illnesses such as stroke or heart attack.  Lycopene, a carotenoid found in abundance in watermelon provides additional cancer fighting health benefits of watermelon.  It is also known to have fat burning benefits due to its high water content which makes your metabolism work more efficiently.  In this flavor, the ginger gives some soft heat while the watermelon adds a refreshing sweetness.  Its perfect harmony makes watermelon ginger a very popular kombucha flavor!

    Not only are the flavors of Anne’s Kombucha delicious, but they are also as healthy as you can get!  Anne’s Kombucha is gluten free and does not contain any GMOs, colors, preservatives, or artificial sweeteners.  Bottoms up!

  • Benefits of Probiotics

    What are probiotics and what are the benefits of probiotics? Anne’s Kombucha is loaded with probiotics, so we want to give an intro into the world of probiotics and what they mean for your body.  Kombucha is essentially made up of a living culture of microorganisms that are beneficial to your health.  The probiotic content in Anne’s Kombucha is over one billion organisms, so we feel like we should explain what that means for your body and health.

    What are Probiotics?

    Probiotics are live microorganisms that help maintain the natural balance of the intestines.  Basically, probiotics keep in check the amount of harmful bacteria in our stomach and intestines—kind of like little warriors keeping harmful bacteria at bay.

    Benefits of Probiotics are found in Anne's Kombucha.

    Many probiotic foods are produced by the action of yeasts, lactic acid bacteria, or a combination of both.  If you think you have never eaten food with probiotics, think again!  Probiotics are commonly found in fermented foods with added active live cultures such as yogurt and soy yogurt.  Perhaps you are familiar with probiotics in yogurt by another name—acidophilus—a variety of probiotic.  Probiotics are also found in other fermented foods such as miso, kimchi, tempeh, sauerkraut, kefir, and of course, kombucha!  Because of the health benefits of probiotics, they are also available in pill form as a dietary supplement.

     

     

     

    Health Benefits of Probiotics

    The health benefits of probiotics are plenty.  Many benefits of probiotics relate to the digestive system, but scientists are studying how probiotics may have a positive influence in the prevention and treatment of several very serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

    Studies suggest that the friendly bacteria in probiotics could help prevent and treat:

    • IndigestionBenefits of Probiotics include the prevention and treatment of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
    • Irritable bowel syndrome
    • Diarrhea
    • Gas
    • Cramping
    • Chronic Inflammation
    • Infections of the digestive tract

    Not only are probiotics known to help with the above ailments, but they are also connected with preventative benefits as well.  Probiotics are noted to enhance mood, fight allergies, boost immunity, and detoxify the body.  Probiotics have also been related to reducing or eliminating symptoms of depression, fibromyalgia, and anxiety.

    A great way to get in on the wonderful health benefits of probiotics is to incorporate them into your diet.  Pick up some up Anne’s Kombucha at Whole Foods, Jimbos or other local markets and get those one billion lactobacillus bacterium working for your health.  Your body will thank you!

  • The Power of Flower Essences in Kombucha

    If you’ve ever tried Kombucha, you know that Anne’s Kombucha is more than just a step above the rest. What is it that makes Anne’s Kombucha so much more energizing and refreshing? Anne’s secret is flower essences! Anne’s Kombucha is the first Kombucha on the market infused with organic flower essences.

    Flower essences of kombucha

    What are flower essences?

    Flower essences are the blossoms of plants prepared from a sun infusion in a bowl of water, then further diluted and preserved. These preparations embody the distinct imprint, or energetic pattern of each flower species.

    In holistic healing flower essences are used in vibrational medicine. Vibrational medicine incorporates the use of chi energies within living organisms such as plants, gemstones and crystals, water, sunlight, and even the foods we eat.

     

     

    What flower essences does Anne incorporate in her Kombucha?

    Anne’s Kombucha contains six flower essences, each chosen with a specific purpose to benefit the body and mind.

    Cherry Plum: Cherry Plum is one of the first European trees to flower in spring, often starting in mid-February. The flowers are white and about an inch across, with five petals. We add cherry plum essence to assist in composure during challenging times. Cherry plum supports the ability to see life in a positive, broad perspective.

    Clematis: The name Clematis is the Ancient Greek for “a climbing plant”, most probably a periwinkle. There are over two hundred and fifty species, often named for their originators or particular characteristics. The clematis flower is added for concentration and creativity. Clematis essence helps support the body on an energetic level.

    Impatiens: Impatiens is often used as an herbal remedy for the treatment of bee stings, insect bites, and Stinging Nettle rashes. They are particularly used after Poison Ivy contact to prevent a rash from developing. Impatiens is valued for encouraging patience and empathy towards others. This flower essence supports relaxation of both the emotional and physical body.

    Olive: The olive is one of the oldest cultivated plants of the Mediterranean and is thought to have been grown at least 5000 years ago in Egypt and on Crete for its highly valuable oil. The Olive flower essence has the power to restore peace to a distressed and tired mind, and give strength to an exhausted body. It is especially beneficial for people who have suffered from stress, trauma or illness for long periods of time.

    Rock Rose: Rock Rose is a small family of plants known for its beautiful shrubs, which are profusely covered by flowers at the time of blossom. Rock rose flower essence inspires courage and calmness and helps the body maintain present awareness.

    Star of Bethlehem: The Star of Bethlehem flower restores the body’s ability to heal itself; supports inner strength, vitality and mental clarity.

    Dr. A.M., a family practitioner from New Mexico, has been incorporating various flower essences into his practice for years and sees his patients returning again and again for more essences. “The flower essences make available natural healing for anxiety, stress and depression,” Dr. A.M. said. “Our patients LOVE them!”

    Flower essences of kombucha

    What’s new at Anne’s?

    Today, these essential flower essences can be experienced in 3 new ways with Anne’s Kombucha in her 3 new Kombucha flavors: Original, Watermelon Ginger and Pineapple.  So start enjoying the benefits of these organic flower essences today with a revitalizing bottle of Anne’s Kombucha.
