last day of January

January 31st, 2017 at 08:36 pm

It's somehow the last day of January already! Wow.

I've been lying low - lots of viruses are flying around the office and I'm doing my best to fend them all off. I've already been sick with month-long colds twice this season and I think that's enough.

The home vet came by last week and it turned out to be much cheaper than expected! Since it was less expensive, I splurged on a 5-week Slim Team challenge through the vegan recipe service I subscribe to. So far so good. I've counted my calories every day for years anyway, but this is motivating me to actually stay within a set amount.

Last weekend I made soy yogurt, 16 bean soup (in the instant pot), vegan lasagna, red lentil dahl (in the instant pot), and wheat roti. I love my instant pot, and my stand-up freezer!

My newest culinary adventure? Making kombucha. I love it, but it's $3-$4 a bottle in the stores, and really not that hard to make. I started my third batch on Saturday. It's a lot like maintaining a sourdough culture. Now I have delicious probiotic drinks filling up my fridge!

    Cool on your kombucha! I found making pickles like that...far cheaper than buying them in the store.

    Glad you haven't caught anything; hope your luck continues!

    One good thing about being unemployed...you don't get sick!

    Could you share your kombucha recipe?

    Thanks everyone!

    fern - I bought a kombucha-making kit at TJ Maxx that had everything in it. Since then I have been making it with half black tea and half oolong. I'm using a basic recipe from the Kombucha Revolution cookbook.
