1. I love collard greens!!
    I used to drink kombucha pretty often. Now I don’t think the store bought ones are really all that good for you, but making your own would be the way to go. I don’t dare though. Too many scary stories about bad cultures. You rock!

    • Haha! Kombucha is a fermented “tea” that has claims to a bizillion health claims. I like the taste of it (admittedly, kinda like apple cider vinegar) and the way it makes me feel, energized and thirst/appetite satisfied. Since kombucha is fermented it has the benefits of “good” bacteria, which can promote healthy flora in the intestines and help boost the immune system (like yogurt).
      I don’t drink soda but love carbonation and kombucha has a nice light fizz.
      If you ever try it, you’ve been warned-it is usually an acquired taste!

  2. Those collard greens look pretty good. I’ve never seen them at my local grocery store because I don’t think they’re typical here in Canada, but I saw some when we were in Arizona over the holidays. Didn’t buy because I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but now I know for next time. 🙂

    • I’ve always been more of a kale girl myself but collards are great. They are a little bitter and hardy, they hold there texture for a long time before turning to mush. I don’t know how wide spread they grow but in the US they are a quintessential Southern food and were traditionally served with lots of ham or bacon and cooked until super soft.

    Collards are so hearty. After a month of below freezing day times, nights as cold as 12, and several snows, Megan harvested collards, sweet and tender.
