keeping up with kombucha

21 September 2016

This post was created in partnership with KeVita. Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for a giveaway at the end of the post!

I know you know how much we've enjoyed going to the beach since we moved here, as evidenced by my multitude of posts about our trips. I hadn't really thought much about the evolution of how our trips have changed in the past year until the other night. It's funny because initially I thought that taking a nap and schedule dependent little baby would be more difficult than taking a happy-go-lucky mobile baby/toddler to the beach but guess what? I was wrong.

Previously, one of us always had to be sitting with a napping Bosco or walking him around in the carrier and that person, unofficially, had the easier job because he was pretty happy and agreeable and sometimes asleep thanks to the world's largest sound machine mere feet away.

And now? He's almost a full-time job for both of us at the beach because he did not get the shy gene that some of our kids possess and sprint-crawls to various neighboring beach goer's camps, to the water, and to giddily destroy his sibling's sand creations.

We find ourselves having to kind of, "deep breath and gear up" for the great Bosco chase beachcapades these days. Basically, what I'm saying is that we still love love LOVE going to the beach but wish we could switch out our batteries about 1/2 way through our trip. Luckily, KeVita offered to send some of their wonderful products that are perfect for busy outings with the kids.

B sees the water and all but leaps out of my arms ...

At home he wants to be held, held, and held some more but at the beach? hasta la vista, MOM - go ahead and show off your KeVita all by yourself.

I know a lot of my friends are big Kombucha drinkers and as usual, I'm tardy to the party but I'm hoping I'm only fashionably late because the benefits of KeVita's Master Brew Kombucha are kind of mind blowing. Brimming with live probiotics, organic acid, and natural caffeine (80mg is equivalent to a cup of green tea) KeVita's Kombucha is a genius and much healthier alternative to my afternoon/evening caffeinated drink of choice that inevitably leads to a crash and bedtime burn right when I need that last push to get the kids down.

If you're not ready to go full on Kombucha, KeVita has a really tasty line of sparkling probiotic drinks ...

... to help ease you in. My favorite is the Strawberry Acai Coconut and Simon's (not pictured) is the Lime and Coconut Mojita.

I didn't think Simon would go for even the sparkling probiotic drinks but he ended up drinking most of my drink I had designated for myself on a recent beach trip before drinking his own Lime Mojita on the drive home ...

Without being able to actually give you a taste of my/our sparkling probiotic drink - I'll try to explain as best I can. They are light, refreshing, and fruity having been naturally fermented with Water Kefir Culture and have four strains of live probiotics and four billion CFUs that help support digestive and immune health.

And the real deal Master Brew Kombucha is also sparkling but has a bolder brewed taste. It's fermented with black and green tea, kombucha culture and also includes two strains of live probiotics and four billion CFUs and is enriched with B vitamins. Master Brew Kombucha come in a wide variety of flavors including: Ginger, Pineapple Peach, Raspberry Lemon, Citrus, Dragonfruit, Lemongrass, and Mango HabeƱero.

Anyway, it helps me keep up with these little hooligans ...

... and realize that kombucha is living up to the hype.

In addition to tasty drink making, KeVita also recently launched a new #innerselfie app that's (you guessed it!) a really fun selfie app. For every photo uploaded through the app, KeVita will donate $1 to the Gastric Cancer Foundation. If you're going to take a selfie - might as well be for a good cause, says I.

Anyway, would you like to try some KeVita for yourself? Good! Because they are generously giving a 3 month supply away to one lucky reader! Follow the Rafflecopter widget to (hopeful!) victory ...

Thanks for reading and playing :)

  1. I got on the Kombucha bandwagon a few years ago and really enjoy them but my mom is OBSESSED with KeVita and always has her fridge stocked with them. My friend also drinks a KeVita Kombucha daily and swears that she doesn't get UTI's anymore - if that's not motivation to drink up, I don't know what is! I'd be quite popular with both of them if I won this giveaway!

  2. I've been drinking kombucha for a month and it definitely gives me a boost. The ginger flavors are my favorite
