Probiotic Lemonade!

This recipe graciously stolen from the Food Renegade.


The Goods
juice of 12 lemons
1/2 cup honey, preferably light colored
1 cup of whey (the liquid drained off of yogurt)

The Gettin’
1.  Put all ingredients into a gallon sized container.  Top off with water (distilled might be best; we actually like the taste of ours better with tap water.)  Mix thoroughly and cover tightly with a lid.
2.  Keep at room temperature for 48 hours.
3.  Depending on how humid your climate is, some amount of yeast and/or mold could form.  Don’t worry about it – just filter the finished product through some coffee filters.
4.  Make sure to refrigerate after filtering, and enjoy!

The Take
I am someone who by and large is satisfied to drink water all the time.  Occasionally, though, I get the craving for a tart, cold lemonade.  This recipe delivers exactly what I’m looking for and has the added benefit of having beneficial live bacteria!  Should you not care about the probiotic benefit, you may omit the whey – however, the final product will be sweeter due to the absence of bacteria.

Jamba Juice!

For the record we are not cool enough or popular enough for any of our posts, including this one, to be a sponsored post.  That means these are straight up awesome.

So you want an easy and delicious snack without the fuss?

Orange Berry Antioxidant Juice Blend

We have found out that Jamba Juice does “Fresh Juice Blends” guys!  There are two we know are SCD and have been chugging down at any availability…

Tropical Kick-StartJuice Blend

So if you’re driving around town and needing a quick fix, or perhaps wanting a special treat, you could try one of those guys!  Also we’ve noticed they sell apple chips and cinnamon apple chips that are SCD friendly. 🙂 YUM!

*Foods like these (that you don’t make yourself) should be consumed at your own risk.  You never know if an illegal was slipped in!  In our case, they work for us – use your own discretion!

Sweet Sweet Sangria

This recipe graciously stolen from Living Fully Without.


The Goods
1 bottle dry red wine  (a Cabernet Sauvignon is what we already had…)
4 cups club soda
1 cup SCD legal apple juice
1/2 cup honey (I mixed it with 1/4 cup hot water so it would blend easily)
1 lemon, sliced and squeezed
1 lime, sliced and squeezed
1 orange, sliced and squeezed
Fruit of your choice…
OURS INCLUDED: Grapes, Macintosh Apples, Blackberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Watermelon, Pineapple

The Gettin’
1. Mix it together!  For best results, refrigerate so the fruit juices can seep in for 24 hours.  But if you’re too eager to wait, pour over ice and serve!  We only waited 3 hours.

The Take
So Lauren has a long standing relationship with sangria that was easily passed onto Jordan when they met.  This sangria recipe is so smooth and refreshing. After our first taste, we all looked around and said, “CHEERS AGAIN!” A glorious version of a drink that we are most fond of…
