A New Kombucha

I was at Whole Foods today and tried a new Kombucha - usually I get the GT's gingerade (sooo yummy!) or citrus, but today I was adventurous and got this beauty...

it's pink! and guava :) quite delicious

I've got some kale chips in the dehydrator using a twist on Averie's recipe - I added in a super ripe Roma tomato, freshly ground black pepper, several cloves of garlic (about 6 medium size cloves for about one pound of kale), and I upped the lemon flavor - zest & juice of two lemons (I've been getting some awesome citrus lately from the farmer's market) and added a splash of raw apple cider vinegar. I had to stop by Publix (before I was planning on the Whole Foods trip) and they didn't have heads of kale, so I just bought the bagged kind... thus the kale chips are going to be more like clusters of little kale leaves - still delicious! Here they are going into the dehydrator:

and here is dinner:

spring mix, baby portabellas, red pepper, carrot, cucumber, fresh strawberries from Parksdale farms (the mecca of all things strawberry!), avocado and hemp seeds, topped with homemade vinaigrette - cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, fresh tangerine juice, salt and pepper. Simple & divine!

I have tomorrow off so the weekend starts now! Yay!

I haven't tried the Guava kombucha yet, but thanks for the recommendation! My favorite is mango :)
