FEEDING GER SASSER -Crossfit/ GRID Athletes like Ger Sasser need big fuel and people were always asking me what I feed Ger, my son. (5 time Crossfit Regionals athlete, San Francisco Fire GRID athlete, and owner/trainer of CROSSFIT COUNTDOWN, along with his wife, Cassie) I love to come up with delicious, simple, mostly paleo diet meal plans and share them, so others can have success in the kitchen. These easy Crossfit diet meal plan recipes can make a big difference in your performance.
I love making kombucha. If you don’t make your own yet, please read my post here for tips to get started: Kombucha – Make It Yourself. If you are local, let me know if you want a scoby to start with. I have a long family-tree.
I’m always making different flavor combinations when I bottle kombucha. I have many favorites but still longed for a pumpkin pie spice flavor. I’ve been developing this and I just love it! If you love pumpkin, you will, too. I thought about waiting until fall to post this recipe, but I just couldn’t wait. Pumpkin should not only be celebrated in one season! (It's fast becoming a family favorite)
So, when your next gallon of kombucha is ready to be bottled you could try it this way:
I’d already made a batch of tea with 7 organic black tea bags and 1 cup of sugar and let it cool.
With clean hands, I carefully took out the scoby and laid him aside on a clean plate. (He looks good)
I gave the kombucha a gentle stir with a wooden spoon and poured off 1 cup to go in the new batch.
I added the following ingredients into the gallon jar:
3 TBSP organic pumpkin
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp ginger (you can put a matchstick-sized piece of fresh peeled ginger in each bottle instead if you prefer)
I GENTLY stirred this up until the pumpkin mixed in.
I filled 6 bottles, leaving a little breathing room at the top of each, and capping tightly. They went into a cooler for 48 hours and then into the fridge. Deliciously different.
