I did finally bottle the kombucha. I followed the recipe that I found online for double fermenting for flavor. I have noticed that it works better for my tea to ferment it longer. It makes it a little more tart and strong as well as give it a little more effervescence. I just love that word. :)
I mentioned the other day that I think I have been eating less. Well, it must be true. Last month at my prenatal visit I gained 8 (8!!!) pounds! That's a lot. I mean A. LOT! I'm only supposed to gain about 1 pound a week at this point. Well between the last visit and the one this week I only gained about 1. Not even a whole pound. Believe me when I say that I eat. I eat plenty. I'm just eating foods that are more nutrient dense and higher in fat. That's been such a life saver for me. I'm not hungry at night anymore. I also have way more energy. I feel so much better. It's hard to fight this programming that says that more fat makes you fatter. It's very hard. BUT, I can't deny the way I feel. My blood pressure is lower than two weeks ago too. That may be pregnancy related though. So... I don't know. Either way, eliminating processed and sugary foods from your diet is not a bad thing. I guess that's about all I have to add for today. Take care!
