Kombucha: Magic or Marketing?

bottlesA few years ago, I discovered kombucha.  It wasn’t love at first sight, but somehow, between that virgin taste at a San Francisco Whole Foods (where they serve it on tap) and today, a mild obsession took hold.  I now drink this bacteria-yeast combo often enough that my toddler recently asked me if I was having it for breakfast; and I don’t even blink an eye when the slimy, ballooning cultures slide down my throat.

A few years ago (2008), Jessica Seinfeld came out with a cookbook called Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food.  At the time, as a brand new parent (my son was four months old), I was quick to judge.  “Good for her, but I will never be that parent,” I remember telling myself.  “My kids will learn to eat spinach and broccoli and beets and fava beans because they’re delicious and healthy.”  Well, four years later, here I am: hiding vegetables and vitamins not only in my kids’ food, but in mine too.  In short, I do this because it works.
