I may have said something about a recipe with kombucha in my last long winded post, but this post has nothing to do with kombucha. Other than these nuts would go really well with a nice cold glass of home brewed kombucha.
I've been so busy lately, that I haven't really thought about entertaining, or slowing down for that matter.
One day I just wanted to slow down, snack on something delicious and make time to see friends.
About a year ago I mentioned the deep depths of crunchiness that I had traveled to. Kombucha was this eventful project that I sort of wasn't sure I wanted to keep up with.
I thought it would be one of those things that sounded like a good idea, but once I was deep in the throws of scoby hotels and second fermenting, that I'd loose my verve for it and just treat myself to the bottled stuff at the store when I had a couple extra pennies.
Now, I'm even deeper in to the hippy world of fermenting beverages, and in fact have learned to make this process much easier on myself.
I am now a full fledged continuous brew kombucha maker. If you know what any of that means you are just as hippy nerdy as me. If you don't, hold on to your preppy because your about to get schooled into the funky world of bacteria growing hippy drinks.
It's been approximately one year since I've modeled my diet after a more Paleo theory.
I'm not going to say I've been 100% Paleo all of the time.
I've had my bumps and falls and treats, and I paid for most of those hours later. I've had mostly very good days of clean eating and have nearly purged my need for sugars entirely.
I've posted a lot about my trials with it, and long winded posts as to my reasons why I was crazy enough to change everything.
I plan on this being the model for how I eat, and work out and feed everyone I know.
There will be times when I eat real ice cream, a real pancake, and a bite or two of pasta deemed incredibly worthy. But for the most part, I will stay on this path.
I believe it took me this entire year to find my way and groove in this new life. I know to read every little label (even the heavy cream), I know that there is usually something to eat at a restaurant even if it's a meal of side orders. I've even managed a road trip.
And finally, after a year, I've found a baked good that I will deem worthy enough to make again and serve to non-paleo people.
