With our mission here at LSK to help people live healthy lives, we wanted to jump right into a blog that focuses on what "living a healthy life" means to different individuals. So we're kicking it off with a blog from our amazing brand ambassador Susel!
I am a big fan of scouring Pinterest for motivational quotes. When I have a hard time explaining something, Pinterest never fails me by showing me a quote that explains what I'm trying to say. So yes, I am starting this blog post with a motivational quote. And boy, did I find a good one!
“It's never too early or too late to work on being the healthiest you”
I thought this quote was appropriate due to the new-ish (Yes, I know it's March!) year but I think it's appropriate all year round.
“Workout more , be healthier” is a very popular New Year's resolution. It's like this mad dash to start the new year right. But what if I told you that it doesn't have to be a new year to start working on being a healthier version of you? What if I told you that you can start RIGHT THIS MINUTE , by deciding that you want to be a healthier version of yourself? I'm not saying that go run a marathon right now but who knows? That could be a future goal! I believe making the smallest changes add up to big changes in your life. I will give you some examples of small tweaks I've made that are now habits.
These are not new ideas that I'm talking about but it makes a world of difference when you actually put them into practice. So why not decide to make a small change in your daily routine if you're looking to becoming a healthier version of you. Let me know in the comments what small tweak you would like to make!
What’s the point? Why do we make kombucha? How did you get into kombucha?
These are common questions I get asked, usually during in-store samplings, and they’re great questions! For our first ever blog post here at LSK I want to give a little background about why we do what we do.
When I was working construction for my dad during my time down at the U of M, I drank Red Bull like it was going out of style just to make it through 80+ hour school/work weeks. One day that all changed when a chiropractor introduced my dad and I to kombucha.
I was immediately hooked and began home brewing with my Mom. With lifting, jujitsu and construction as huge parts of my life, I wanted a kombucha that wouldn’t weigh me down with artificial carbonation or sweeteners, but couldn’t find anything on the market that met that need. As we talked with other people we knew, we found this to be a common theme. We also found many people couldn’t stomach most of the kombucha on the market and thought it tasted “nasty foot water.” (Gross I know, but hey, not my words). This just bothered me because I knew how good kombucha could taste, and more importantly, how good it is for our bodies.
As we thought about turning our passion for kombucha into a business, one of the biggest factors in actually going for it was knowing we could help people with our brew. My entire family is truly passionate about helping others and we were pumped by the idea that we would be able to help people live healthy lives through something we make.
So, we launched LSK in 2014 with that as our mission - to help people live healthy lives. As we continue to grow, we are constantly learning how amazing kombucha is, how amazing people are, and how we truly are making a difference in people’s lives. We’ve seen countless people who say they don’t like kombucha give LSK a try and love it! That’s why we do what we do. We want to give people a healthy beverage that’s easy to drink.
Cheers friends! Keep an eye on our website for more blogs, soon coming recipes and resources to help you live a healthy life!
