BOOM! Remedy Good Energy Superfruits is in the ROOM!

Remedy Good Energy proved such a hit we decided we better add a new flavour into the mix – get ready to rumble with Remedy Good Energy Superfruits launching into Woolworths this week.

What’s it taste like?

With all-natural pomegranate, blueberry, riberry, raspberry, apple and lemon, Remedy Good Energy Superfruits will give you the super fruity super boost you need to go about your day AND SLAY!

There’s a mouth party going on right here with this berry delicious fizzy packing a punch with polyphenols, green coffee bean and ginseng for the win. Expect juicy, jammy, red fruit flavours with subtle notes of cinnamon and clove care of Aussie superfruit riberry . With no sugar, naturally, this one’s guaranteed to blow your mind…..every time.

WTH's a riberry?

Riberries are indigenous to Australia and known for their immune boosting properties - they're positively loaded with vitamins and chock full of antioxidants. Riberries have a refreshing, spicy flavour, with a hint of clove and cinnamon. We source our riberry extract from The Australian Super Foods Co and think its softly spicy notes work wonderfully well with the other fab fruits in Remedy Good Energy Superfruits including pomegranate, blueberry, riberry, raspberry, apple and lemon.

I missed the memo on Remedy Good Energy. What is it?

Remedy Good Energy is an energy drink that’s all good. All rrrriiiiiight! This brand new, live cultured fizzy from Remedy is the world’s first kombucha-based energy drink with raw green coffee bean, green tea and ginseng for the win.

Why's Remedy Good Energy so rad?

Made with Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Good Energy is packed with polyphenols, live cultures and organic acids.

For a natural energy kick we’ve added a few extra goodies including:

• Green coffee bean to deliver a clean caffeine boost. Boo ya!
• Ginseng:  For the win! Ginseng is known for its naturally energising properties.

Double down on that!

Naturally, Remedy Good Energy  doesn’t contain any sugar, crazy unsafe levels of caffeine, guarana, or anything artificial. We’re making it right with a drink that delivers a sustained natural energy boost without the crash, jitters or guilt that can come from more traditional energy drinks loaded with sugar and chemicals. 

Where does the energy come from?

It’s all around you. Nah. JK. Good Energy Superfruits contains around 80mg of caffeine per 330ml bottle, the same as Remedy Good Energy Blackberry and Remedy Good Energy Kakadu Plum. A cup of instant coffee sits at around 80mg of caffeine. Other energy drinks contain around 80mg per 250ml can. Ours has about the same, but without the insane sugar load or any artificial nasties. We know what we’d rather drink!

How on earth do we make this goodness?

Remedy Good Energy comes from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha and is made using a base of the same live kombucha culture from the original homemade brew that our founders Sarah and Emmet nurtured back in the day.

Brewed the old school way, all the sugar is brewed out, leaving a live cultured drink with no sugar, naturally! We then add green coffee bean, ginseng and all-natural flavours to dial it up to a whole new level for an all-natural energy drink.

When can I drink it?

  • In the AM: Remedy Good Energy is the perfect fizzy to put a pep in your step first thing. Chock full of live cultures and polyphenols, try Superfruits for a fruity start to your day.
  • The 3pm slump: It’s a thing. Instead of reaching for a cheeky chocolate or soft drink, why not try a Remedy Good Energy and do the right thing by your mind, body and gut! Healthy = tasty with Remedy. No guilt goodness for your gut right here!
  • You’re busting a gut at work or play: You’re out and about trying to get ‘it’ done or pulling a late one because you’ve got an exam or work presentation. Reach for the Remedy Good Energy we say!
  • Sub out a traditional energy drink: Got the jitters from one too many? We get it, we’re no saints either but try a Remedy Good Energy instead and see how you go…guaranteed you’ll be feelin’ good vibes only.

Where can I buy it?

Remedy Good Energy Superfruits is available at Woolworths and online at remedydrinks.com. 

Hold the phone! Remedy Good Energy now in cans

You guys! We've done diddly it! Remedy Good Energy Blackberry and Remedy Good Energy Kakadu Plum are now available in sweet as 250ml cans as singles AND 4 packs. Shazam. Kapow. BAM!

We know you love, love, LOVE Remedy Good Energy so we thought we'd let you have it (with all guns blazing) in a small, smashable can perfect for on the go, chucking in your backpack or taking to party.

Where does the energy come from?

It’s all around you. Nah. JK. Remedy Good Energy contains around 25mg caffeine per 100ml or around 60mg per 250ml can. A cup of instant coffee sits at around 80mg of caffeine. Other energy drinks contain around 80mg per 250ml can. Ours has just under, but without the insane sugar load or any artificial nasties. We know what we’d rather drink!

Soooo….what does it even taste like?

Remedy Good Energy Blackberry is plump and juicy, bursting with goodness.

Remedy Good Energy Kakadu Plum is tart and zingy, with a fresh-as finish. Fruity, floral and a whole lotta fun.

Healthy Halloween Hacks

No doubt about it, Halloween has well and truly taken off here in the Southern Hemisphere.

Rooted in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, Halloween originally began as a way to scare off ghosts and spirits before morphing into the candy laden festival of witches and wizards we know today!

We’re down with dressing up and getting into the spirit (HA! Geddit?) of things but we know some parents find the amount of sugary treats on offer a little overwhelming. (Especially if you spend a bit of time trying to teach your sprogs about a balanced, healthy diet!).

As always, Remedy’s here to help with some healthy Halloween hacks! We’re not total buzz killers though, we know it’s fun to trick and/or treat so we’re all about making small tweaks and balanced choices…here’s our hot tips to making it through Halloween without the sugar crash ‘n’ burn!

Focus on the fun as well as the food!

Spend time talking with your kids about the origins and history of Halloween. Enjoy workshopping the costume possibilities and house decorations rather than the sweets and lollies on offer. One of the beauties of Halloween is the chance for children to wander around their neighbourhood after hours and get to know their community. Why not make this the focus rather than all the sugary loot?!

Eat something healthy before heading out

Have an early dinner before heading out. Filling up with something wholesome and healthy will help minimise the temptation of gorging on lollies.

Healthier handouts

Consider gifting popcorn, fruit kebabs, cheese-sticks or small packets of sultanas or raisins instead of sugary sweets. You could even go for ‘on theme’ mini-cans of Remedy Switchel Blood Orange. They’re the perfect treat without the sweet and just the right size for little hands!

Nix food treats altogether

There’s no hard and fast rule regarding what you hand out to the kids in your neighbourhood and you can bet your bottom dollar some parents will be relieved to see some non-food treats in the trick or treat stash their little ones bring home. Try spooky Halloween themed stickers, bubbles, novelty erasers or even glow sticks to hand out on the night.

There you go – four healthy hacks that’ll have you saying ‘BOO’ to sugar this Halloween!

5 hacks for a healthier kids' party

by Jacqueline Alwill

Most parents would agree that planning a kids’ party with the (inevitable) sugar highs that come with party food and treats is a tad exhausting even before the party starts. So to save you from your next kids’ party headache, dive into these 5 hacks for a healthier kids’ party.

1. FIND FAMILY FAVES

Plan the party WITH your kids when it comes to activities and food. Understand what makes them completely stoked and then be clever in the way you balance the party and health-ify it. If a piñata is on the cards, pop in some cool treats to balance the sweet ones exploding out of it. If your family loves a chocolate cake then make that the hero and leave the extra sugary cupcakes or dense brownies out of the plan. And, if lolly bags to take home are a non-negotiable then top up with some items that maybe aren’t related to food, but still super fun – try packs of cards, cool pencils or mini joke books instead. 

2. ENJOY THE SWEET

But be savvy in how you peel it back, so it doesn’t become a sugar rave. Kids actually don’t care if it’s lollypops on a table or watermelon cut and presented with a stick like a lollypop. It’s the novelty that counts for them and they’ll eat whatever is there. Remember that, because in the midst of wanting to make each party epic for your kids, it can be lost. Simple go to treats without the refined sugar hit might include:

3. SAY HEY TO SAVOURY

To balance the sweet, make it a 2:1 ratio of savoury to sweet on the table and you’ll have a much happier bunch of kids in your company. Remember you don’t have to be making everything yourself, hunt down good quality party food from your local baker, pizzeria or sushi store to top things up and get some quick, little person loving, savoury action on the food table. Consider these crowd favourites:

  • pizza slices - many great pizza shops will happily make up a large slab of pizza with a simple margherita topping if you order in advance
  • mix of brown and white rice vegetable sushi
  • veggie dip boats
  • mini frittata
  • sweet potato wedges
  • vegetarian sausage rolls
  • lavosh or pita bread chips with (no spice) guacamole

4. SWAP THE SODAS

There are always better options and Remedy Drinks has just made the healthiest yet with their NEW fermented soda range. Whilst the idea of juice boxes and some sneaky sugar laden soft drinks might be tempting to keep the small peeps happy this party season, rethink your choices for a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER event. Remedy Drinks has just introduced five new fermented sodas to the Remedy stable including crowd favourites such as Cola, Lemon Lime and Bitters, Lemonade, Ginger Beer and Oranja which means there is a flavour for everyone big and little alike. What’s the difference between Remedy and the ‘usual’ soft drinks or sodas you ask? Well … Remedy Sodas are made with organic fruit juices brewed with Remedy’s live culture to ferment out all of the sugar before adding all natural ingredients including spices and botanicals. Remedy Drinks are making sodas right, with no sugar, naturally. A healthier, tasty fizzy? Yes please!

5. RUN THEM RAGGED

Finally, rather than leave the cake til last, sneak it in half way, get the savoury food out and run kids around before parents come to pick up. Tap into all your old favourite party games and tricks you loved growing up and bring them to life again - pin the tail on the donkey (maybe a minion?), three legged or egg and spoon races, tag, tip you name it. A party planned around great games, healthy food and drinks and family faves are fun filled, healthy kids’ parties done right. 

Recipe: Choc Dipped Pineapple Triangles

Makes approximately 24 slices

Dairy Free: Gluten Free: Refined Sugar Free: Vegan

  • 1 small pineapple, sliced into 1cm thick triangles, skin left intact
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Toppings: finely chopped pepitas, pistachios, coconut flakes, cranberries, or any other dried fruits and nuts you wish

Whisk together coconut oil, raw cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla.

Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Dip 3/4 pineapple piece into melted chocolate, allow a little to drip off the end, lay onto tray and repeat.

Place in fridge to set for 10 minutes then repeat with remaining chocolate this time adding the dried fruit, seeds and nuts (optional) on the top of the pineapple and chocolate.

Pop back in fridge or freezer to set and serve straight from fridge or freezer (chocolate will melt quickly if it’s a hot day!).

Remedy's fresh twist on sodas

Here at Remedy, we're all about shaking fizzy drinks for good and guess what? We're doin' it!

Remedy Sodas are a fresh twist on your old school favourites, reinvented for today’s healthier times.

We're making it right and reclaiming fizzy drinks for what they’re meant to be - refreshing drinks, traditionally fermented with real all-natural ingredients in small batches.

And just like the rest of our tasty Remedy bevvies, Remedy Sodas are live cultured with no sugar, naturally.

WTH's a live cultured soda?

Remedy Sodas come from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha BUT they're NOT kombucha! Amazing! Minds blown!

Think of Remedy Sodas as the perfect bevvie if you aren't quite ready to jump on the booch train but you want to make some healthier swaps in your diet. We get it. Baby steps. 

While Remedy Kombucha is made with tea, Remedy Sodas are made with organic fruit juices brewed with our Remedy live culture to ferment out all of the sugar before adding all natural ingredients including spices and botanicals to create a brand new range of live cultured sodas that are better for you!

how Remedy Sodas are made how Remedy Sodas are made

Why should I choose a live cultured soda over a regular fizzy?

Made with natural live cultures, Remedy Sodas are positively jammed with goodies for your mind, body and gut! Remedy's range of live cultured sodas offer a real, tasty alternative to sugary soft drinks making it easier and tastier to reach for the right stuff!

Live cultures can help support gut health by:

  • Increasing the diversity of your gut flora – these are the good bugs that live in your gut to get things working as they should
  • Preventing the growth of bad bugs that make you sick
  • Supplying billions of microorganisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which the healthy bacteria in your gut use as a food source to produce important metabolites for good health


Organic acids
also known as short chain fatty acids (SFCAs) can:

  • Provide an energy source for the good bacteria in your gut
  • Help to regulate appetite
  • Stabilise blood sugar levels
  • Regulate cholesterol
  • Like live cultures, also help prevent overgrowth of bad bugs in your gut


Naturally contains no sugar:
The beauty of Remedy Sodas is that although they are made with organic juices which naturally contain sugar, all the sugar is eaten up by the live cultures during fermentation to maximise those amazing organic acids. Remedy brews out ALL of the sugar, and we test every batch to make sure. This is why Remedy Sodas have the official tick of approval from Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar.

Organic and all-natural: Remedy Sodas are all-natural and certified organic, providing a natural energy kick without crash and burn of sugar and caffeine highs.

Tempting...but what do they taste like?

Remedy live cultured sodas are fizzy, super refreshing and come in five fab flavours:

Oranja: Our take on a timeless orange soda minus the sugar. Zingy, sunny and bright whole fruit flavours made with real organic Valencia oranges.

Lemonade: A fresh take on a classic, Remedy’s live cultured lemonade is made with freshly squeezed organic lemon juice for a big burst of zest and tang with no sugar, naturally.

Lemon, Lime & Bitters: A live cultured soda made the old school way with real lemon, lime and botanicals. Fresh-as flavour and oh-so-aromatic.

Cola: This right here is the real deal. Cola made right. Ginger, kola nut and vanilla combine to create a smooth, live cultured cola.

Ginger Beer: Big bang tang! This is how Ginger Beer is meant to be. Real ginger for fiery, fresh, full-on flavour and warmth.

When can I drink sodas?

You’re a newbie: Not ready to jump on the booch train? Think of Remedy Sodas as your gateway to the delicious world of tasty, live cultured bevvies. We get it, sometimes you need to take baby steps.

Sub out a traditional soft drink: The crisp, fresh flavours of Remedy Sodas make them a perfect swap for sugary soft drinks. Whether you’re looking for an old school Lemonade or a Cola made right, we’ve got you.

Reach for the right stuff and swap out juice: While we use real, organic fruit juice in our sodas, all the sugar is brewed out making these bevvies a super fresh swap for traditional sugary fruit juice. 

Kids' birthday parties: Notorious for sugar highs and lows, avoid the kiddie crash ’n’ burn and opt for healthy, live cultured sodas at their next birthday party. Our fun size 250ml cans are just right for little hands.

Mix it up: Giving booze a break? Remedy Sodas are a great option to take to BBQs, parties and picnics instead. But if you ARE imbibing, Remedy Sodas also make great mixers. Try Lemon, Lime and Bitters, Ginger Beer or Lemonade in your next mixed drink.

Where can I find Remedy Sodas?

Remedy Sodas are available at major supermarkets, petrol and convenience outlets, health foods stores, cafes and online at remedydrinks.com.

12 top tips to get you through exams

We’re hurtling towards the end of the academic year and for many senior school students, that means exams. Eeep! But stress less honey child because Remedy’s got your back with some common sense advice to see you through. Let's DO this!

You’re not alone - remember to reach out for help

Loadsa people have been through the stress of end of year exams so there’s plenty of TLC and advice available. You just need to remember to reach out if you need to! Don’t go into a hidey-hole and turn into a hermit. Find a friend! The whole business of revision, study and exams can be full of overwhelm so make sure you have someone you can blow off steam with – a trusted person who you can debrief to. You may also need an adult on hand if it all gets a bit too much or if you have a particular problem you need support with. Make sure you approach teachers for advice and support, they do this year in, year out and have seen it all!

ID your goals

Are there particular subjects you need to nail to maximise your score or get into the course of your dreams? If so, make sure you prioritise the exams that matter the most and prepare accordingly.

Know what you’re heading into

Clarify the content and format of the exam, take as many timed, practice exams as you can and aim to begin studying at least one month in advance. Have a plan of attack. There are loads of university sites that have online studying and learning resources. Check out Monash University or UNSW.

What are your 'power hours'?

Are you a morning person or a night person?  ID the time of day that works for you. When are your energy, focus and motivation at their highest? Feeling a bit meh? Rather than push on through, take a short break to avoid feeling overwhelmed or demotivated. Hop tip: study doesn’t necessarily need to be long slabs of interrupted time tucked away in a quiet room. You’re not a monk! Ten, 15 and 30 minute chunks of time on the train, waiting in a car or for the bus can all be used for study.

Get creative

Who said study had to be boring? Consider working with a partner to make mind maps, do quizzes, bounce ideas and questions off each other. Don’t be afraid to mix up your study environment as well. Did you know that studying in different places can actually improve the amount of information you retain? A change is as good as a holiday right? So mix it up. Study outside if it’ a nice day, go to the local library one day a week. Perhaps you’re great at English, but need help with Maths? Pair up with someone who’s great at Maths and needs help with English to coach each other in your weaker subjects.

Take a break

You know that feeling when you’re reading and over the same problem, question or section of text? That's your brain saying 'ENOUGH! Time for a break!' Go outside, get some fresh air or even chat to someone about what you’re studying – this will help you retain and recall information better. Take a ten minute break every hour, stretch, go outside, grab a drink or a snack – but try to stay away from the socials! 

Turn off, remove distractions and avoid multi-tasking

Speaking of socials, it’s pretty easy to procrastinate when you have social media, games and the internet so readily to hand. Make a pact with your mates, download a blocking app and agree on a set period of time to stay off the socials. Multi-tasking is another shocker that’s actually proven to reduce your productivity and drop your IQ. Focus, focus, focus! 

Get organised

Avoid last minutes panic and cramming by drawing up a revision schedule that makes best use of your time in the lead up to exams. Try to be digitally organised as well – this means having all your resources and study materials neatly and clearly filed in drives on your computer so you can find what you need quickly.

Snack right

Go for snacks like fresh fruit, popcorn, yoghurt or nuts to keep you going throughout the day. Avoid cakes, biscuits, lollies and choccies. Sure, you’ll get an initial boost of energy and sugar rush but you’ll be left feeling a little flat and sluggish. Sustained good energy is what you’re after.  Try hummus and veggie sticks, banana and peanut butter rolled up in a wholemeal tortilla or even avo on wholemeal toast!

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Dehydration can make you feel lethargic, snappy and knackered. All of which can affect your concentration making it more difficult to study and perform at your best. Keep your liquids up with herbal tea, water or a Remedy drink of your choice. A coffee or Remedy Good Energy every now and then is OK but don’t rely on caffeine to get you through all-night cramming sessions. Aim for a steady pace rather than last minute swotting! 

Catch some zzzzs

During deep sleep or REM your brain consolidates and processes the information you’ve learned during the day, strengthening neural connections and memory. The more REM stages, the greater amount of information is stored in your noggin! Aim for 7.5 hours a night and 9 hours on days where you’ve spent preparing for exams.

An oldie but a goodie - you are not your result

Once you’ve made it through your exams, keep you options open. If your first choice in terms of further study doesn’t seem right or you didn’t get into the course you wanted – don’t freak out – there are plenty of opportunities to explore once you’ve finished high school. If you’re not feeling university or if they’re not offering a particular subject you’re into, switch it up. Sometimes study paths and careers paths aren’t linear! There are plenty of paths to university and some of those are through practical and hands on options through TAFE. 

Good luck from Team Remedy!

Remedy Switchel is full of goodness and naturally contains no sugar. It offers a range of health benefits thanks to three key factors: apple cider vinegar, ginger and no sugar, naturally.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is highly recommended as a daily health tonic. It contains acetic acid, which is a type of organic acid or short chain fatty acid (SFCA). The potential benefits of apple cider vinegar include:

  • Regulation of blood sugar levels
  • Aiding digestion and improving gut health
  • Helping to regulate appetite
  • Promoting good heart health and helping keep cholesterol levels low
  • Helping restore balance in the body after heavy physical exertion, thanks to naturally occurring electrolytes
  • Balancing the body’s pH levels

Real organic ginger

Remedy Switchel is made from real, raw, pressed ginger. Ginger can:

  • Aid digestion
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Help reduce pain symptoms
  • Boost immunity

No sugar, naturally

Like the Remedy drinks you’ve already come to know and love, Remedy Switchel naturally contains no sugar, with an official tick of approval from Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar.

A great option for kids or when you’re on the go, Remedy Switchel Blood Orange cans are juuuust the right size for picnics, lunchboxes, handbag, backpack or gym bag.

And rest assured, it’s still the same real-deal, hand crafted, live cultured Remedy Switchel you know and love, chock full of organic acids minus the sugar.

Sweet Potato Nachos with new Remedy Tepache

 

by Jacqueline Alwill

The most exciting soda to hit the fridge has officially arrived and to party with REMEDY TEPACHE I’ve created the most deeeeelish and as always nutritious dish to team up with it. Let me first introduce you to Remedy Tepache (pronounced te-par-chey) though… 

Remedy Tepache is based on a traditional Mexican recipe and hand crafted the same way all Remedy drinks are, with no sugar, naturally.

Taking organic pineapple juice and fermenting it with Remedy’s live culture, Tepache is full of beneficial bacteria and organic acids for a scrumptious PINEAPPLE (oooooh yeaaaa) fermented soda that can help to:

• fuel the good bacteria in your gut
• reduce the growth of bad bacteria in the gut which can impact your health and wellbeing
• stabilise your blood sugar and energy levels
• help keep your appetite at bay throughout the day
• deliver vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to the good gut bacteria and your body so both can thrive!

Did you know that PINEAPPLE is rich in a digestive enzyme called ‘bromelain’ too? It’s one of a few fruits including kiwifruit and papaya, that are incredible sources of these digestive enzymes to support your gut health – even more reason to get stuck into it right?

You can enjoy REMEDY TEPACHE any time, with the full confidence that because it naturally contains no sugar and has tremendous benefits for your nutrition, it’s doing something right for your health.

And any time is a good time for a Tepache, but especially when you whip up some of my oh so scrumptious SWEET POTATO NACHOS WITH PINEAPPLE AVOCADO SALSA to go with it!

Recipe: Sweet Potato Nachos with new Remedy Tepache


Serves 4
Gluten free : Dairy Free : Vegan

Nachos:

  • 1500g mixed sweet potatoes, sliced 5mm thick
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive or coconut oil
  • 1 medium (170g) brown onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons smoky paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • good pinch chilli flakes
  • 1/2 bunch coriander, leaves picked, stalks finely chopped
  • 1 x 400g tin black or kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 x 400g tin lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large tomato, chopped or 200g tinned chopped tomatoes

Pineapple avocado salsa:

  • 1/2 small pineapple, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves (can use from the above ingredients), finely chopped
  • juice of 1/2 -1 lime
  • sea salt, black pepper and chilli flakes to taste

Heat oven to 200C and line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper. Spread sweet potato slices over the tray, drizzle with 3-4 tablespoons oil, toss to coat, spread evenly over the tray again and place in oven to bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crispy.

Whilst potatoes are baking, make the nachos mix by heat a large pan on medium heat, add remaining 1 tablespoon or so of extra virgin olive or coconut oil, then add onion and garlic and cook with the lid on for 4-5 minutes or until translucent. Give them a stir throughout. Remove lid, add coriander stalks and spices, cook a further minute stirring throughout so they don’t stir to the pan. Add beans and tomatoes, lower heat to low-medium and cook 10 minutes with the lid off.

Mix together all ingredients for the salsa in a bowl and set aside. Once everything is ready simple layer the nachos mix over the cooked sweet potatoes, top with salsa and coriander leaves, season with sea salt and black pepper and serve.

Que Tepache?

Remedy’s done it again and launched a drink no-one can pronounce! It’s OK though because we’re always happy to help you out - we’re good like that. 

Say after us slowly: TE-PAR-CHEY. It rhymes with PAR-TAY.

What exactly IS Tepache?

Glad you asked! Refreshingly real and radically revitalising with no sugar naturally, Remedy Tepache is a brand new, live cultured fizzy rooted in old school Mexican fermenting traditions and pairs tangy pineapple with warm cinnamon. Tepache is pretty new to Australia but we think you’ll dig it. A LOT!

There’s a long Mexican tradition of quenching your thirst on a hot day with ‘aguas frescas’ which translates as ‘fresh waters’. These drinks are traditionally prepared with sugar, grains and fruits like papaya, watermelon, rockmelon, lemon and mango. Tepache is a fermented pineapple take on these sodas and is traditionally made with pineapple rinds, turbinado brown sugar and cinnamon or cloves.

Tepache is a very easy drink to make at home if you want to try home fermenting taking only a few days to bubble away and do its thing. 

If you don’t have the time or inclination to do a home ferment or prefer a naturally no sugar option, Remedy Tepache is our hot tip.

What does it taste like?

Fizzy, crisp, fresh and super fruity. A little tropical with a smidge of spice and warmth from cinnamon.

how remedy tepache is made how remedy tepache is made

Fermented the old school way, we take organic pineapple juice and brew it with our Remedy live culture to remove all of the sugar before adding all natural ingredients including cinnamon to create a tangy, live cultured pineapple soda that’ll have you saying ‘adios sugar, hola Tepache!’. 

Why’s it so darn tootin’ good for you?

Where to start? Remedy Tepache is jammed with goodies for mind, body and gut! Made with tangy pineapple and spicy cinnamon, Remedy Tepache is packed with live cultures and naturally energising organic acids.

Live cultures improve gut health by:

  • Increasing the diversity of your gut flora – these are the good bugs that live in your gut to get things working as they should
  • Preventing the growth of bad bugs that make you sick
  • Supplying billions of microorganisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which the healthy bacteria in your gut use as a food source to produce important metabolites for good health


Organic acids also known as short chain fatty acids (SFCAs) can:

  • Provide an energy source for the good bacteria in your gut
  • Help to regulate appetite
  • Stabilise blood sugar levels
  • Regulate cholesterol
  • Like live cultures, also help prevent overgrowth of bad bugs in your gut

 

Naturally contains no sugar: The beauty of Remedy Tepache is that although the organic pineapple juice it is made with naturally contains sugar, all the sugar is eaten up by the live cultures during fermentation to maximise those amazing organic acids. Remedy brews out ALL of the sugar, and we test every batch to make sure. This is why Remedy Tepache has the official tick of approval from Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar.

Organic and all-natural: Remedy Tepache is all-natural and certified organic, providing natural energy kick without crash and burn of sugar and caffeine highs.

When should you drink it?

Anytime is Tepache time! But here’s a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing… 

  • Sub out a traditional soft drink: The super juicy, crisp, fresh flavour of Tepache makes it the perfect swap for a sugary soft drink. Think of it as a great gateway to the wonderful world of live cultured bevvies. We get it, sometimes you need to take baby steps.
  • Reach for the right stuff and swap out juice: While Remedy uses real, organic pineapple juice to make Tepache, all the sugar is brewed out making this bevvie a super fresh swap for traditional sugary fruit juice. Like all Remedy bevvies, Remedy Tepache is no sugar, naturally.
  • For foodies: The tang of pineapple and hint of cinnamon make Remedy Tepache the perfect accompaniment to BBQs, dinner parties and picnics. With its refreshingly crisp flavours, Tepache pairs perfectly with spicy foods from tacos and tostadas through to Sri Lankan and Thai curries.
  • Mix it up: Giving booze a break? Remedy Tepache is a great option to take to parties or events instead of your usual six pack of West Coast Cooler (JK). But if you ARE imbibing, Tepache also works wonders with tequila, vodka and even dark or light rum. The only limit is your imagination. You could even take it the next level and mix it with a little beer, just like they do in Mexico. Tepache Shandy anyone?

So there you have it – an introduction to one of the oldest, newest fermented drinks – Remedy Tepache!  Salud!

Better Homes & Gardens on how to ID real kombucha

Better Homes & Gardens did some booch mythbusting recently with a little friendly expert advice from Remedy Drinks!

Here's how to tell if your kombucha is the real deal.

And a couple of tips from us:

  • Pour some kombucha in a glass and let it sit in a warm place for a few days. If it’s real, a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast should form (a SCOBY).
  • The beneficial bacteria and live cultures in kombucha can only be present in the drink if it is raw and unpasteurised.
  • Check the label to see how the product is made, real kombucha is brewed over time.

Remedy Kombucha reviewed in The Guardian

News just in from The Guardian!

Remedy Kombucha Raspberry Lemonade makes the grade in Fiona Beckett's review of four fruit drinks that aren't too sickly sweet.

"A not-too-scary introduction to kombucha with the flavour of a sour beer. Virtuously raw, vegan and unpasteurised."

We couldn't agree more.

Remedy Kombucha Raspberry Lemonade is a grown-up, guilt-free take on a childhood classic. No sugar. No nasties. Just lip-smacking gut-loving goodness in a bottle.

Five reasons to get more ginger in your diet

The words ‘super’ and ‘food’ get bandied around a lot. Like A LOT a lot and sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between a fad and the real deal.

When it comes to superfood superhero status, ginger really is the OG. It’s one radical rhizome that has truly stood the test of time for hundreds if not thousands of years in traditional and herbal medicine.

Here at Remedy, we’re huge fans of ginger where it is a key ingredient in some of our fan favourites including our Remedy Kombucha Ginger Lemon, Remedy Kombucha Ginger Berry and ALL of our Remedy Switchel flavours! (Remedy Switchel is made with raw organic apple cider vinegar and fresh organic ginger juice – you can read all about it here).

Still not sure why you should guzzling more ginger goodness? We’ve done the heavy lifting for you (because we’re nerds and we care) with five good reasons to get more ginger inya!

1. It’s anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants

The main reason ginger is so g-damn great is that it is anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants. We’re HUUUGE fans of antioxidants here at Remedy (our drinks are full of them).  So why do we keep banging on about them? Inflammation is your body’s natural response to injury or illness but too much can be associated with disease and ill health (BOOOOO). By incorporating more antioxidant rich foods into your diet you’re giving yourself a fighting chance against inflammation. Here’s the good news - ginger is one of the BEST foods you can choose to fight inflammation with its gingerol compound responsible for much of its medicinal properties. No excuses needed to smash a few Switchels – aim for at least one a day we say!

2. It’s belly soothing

An oldie but a goodie - ginger is well known for its calming effect on your gut. Fantastic for those of us who aren’t great travelers, make sure you grab one when you’re on the go whether that’s in a plane, train or automobile. HOT TIP: Ginger is also great if you’re preggers and feeling the not so rad effects of morning/afternoon/all day sickness as it curbs nausea, relieves discomfort and (dare we say it) GAS! We love getting fan mail from mummas to be who find great relief in supping on our ginger based bevvies. 

3. It’s a ripper for post gym recovery

Ginger’s great anti-inflammatory properties extend to your muscular system. If you’ve literally busted your gut in the gym and your muscles are feeling a little sore, grab a Remedy Kombucha Ginger Lemon or Remedy Kombucha Ginger Berry to not only rehydrate but help ease that muscle pain. 

4. Colds and flu begone!

With anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties that can help fight infection,  ginger is a great natural option to support your immunity during the colder months. So when we’re all  feeling a little more susceptible to whatever dreaded lurgy is doing the rounds, reach for a Remedy (with ginger). SCIENCE SPEAK: Ginger is also a ‘diaphoretic’ which means it works from the inside out to heat your body which is just what you need when it’s wet and chilly outside. 

5. Your BFF come TOM

Again with the inflammation and soreness! Women, we hear you. Whatever you need to do to make your life more comfortable around your period, DO IT! When you’re menstruating your uterine muscles may be working overtime leading to cramps. Ugh. The compounds found in ginger may help quell inflammation so we advise to treat yo’self with a Remedy Kombucha Ginger Berry or three (and a hot water bottle).

There you have it – five good reasons to let more ginger into your life! 

You down with ACV?

Truth be told acronyms drive us a little nutty. But Apple Cider Vinegar can be a mouthful, both literally and figuratively!

Having said that, we love ACV for many reasons: it can aid digestion, help regulate and stabilise blood sugar levels, promote good heart health and help keep cholesterol low.

We love it but we don’t necessarily love necking it straight! Which is why we use ACV to make one of the best tasting fizzies out there – Remedy Switchel!

Here’s four good reasons to incorporate more ACV in your diet:

1. Good bacteria for your gut

Heard of ‘the mother’ -  the web like sediment that sits at the bottom of the bottle of raw, organic, unpasteurised apple cider vinegar? This ‘mother’ is very similar to the SCOBY (symbiotic colony of good bacteria and yeast) you’ll find in kombucha. Believed to be rich in health-boosting natural proteins, healthy bacteria and acetic acid, ‘the mother’ is where it’s at and part of the reason why ACV is so good for you.

2. Damn good for your digestion

Drinking ACV can help regulate the amount of acid in your stomach, leading to easier digestion. Bye bye bloating or constipation! Just like other fermented foods (hello kombucha and coconut water kefir), raw, unpasteurised apple cider vinegar also contains healthy bacteria that can help keep your digestive system working properly.

3. Curbs those blood sugar spikes

A daily dose of ACV can help stabilise and regulate blood sugar. Consider having a Switchel before a high-carb meal to prevent blood sugar spikes and if you’re counting your calories, research has also found that acetic acid in ACV can stop your body from absorbing the calories from carbohydrates.

4. Lowers cholesterol and improves heart health

Studies have shown that taking ACV can help to lower triglycerides. Triglycerides are a type of fat found in your blood but having high levels of these lipids can increase your risk of heart disease because they cause fat to build up in your arteries which can block blood flow. No thanks!

There you have it, four very good reasons to incorporate ACV into your daily diet to give your gut and overall health and wellbeing a boost.  The easiest, tastiest way to do so? Grab a Remedy Switchel Tropical, Finger Lime or Blood Orange Switchel to reap the rewards. Not sure which flavour to try first? Grab a mixed case and try them all!

More mixed case love!

Remember when we announced we'd be making Remedy Kombucha Mixed Cases? 'Whooooopeee'* you said. 'This is great news'* 'OMG!'*

Well, get ready to jump up and down Rem fans - we've decided to release a Remedy Switchel Mixed Case AND a Remedy Coconut Water Kefir Mixed Case! RAISE THE ROOF!

Remedy Switchel and Remedy Coconut Water Kefir are two of the newest Remedy kids on the block and we know how much you like to try before you go the whole hog and commit to a full case of one flavour, sooooo we're bringing these brand new mixed cases direct to you for your drinking pleasure.

What even is Remedy Switchel?

Allow us to explain. Remedy Switchel is fizzy, a little fiery and super refreshing. Made with raw organic apple cider vinegar and fresh organic ginger, Remedy Switchel naturally contains no sugar. The apple cider vinegar and ginger are full of health properties proven to rehydrate the body, improve gut health, reduce inflammation, boost immunity and more! Above all, Remedy Switchel is SUPER tasty, making it the ultimate health hack for adding a dose of goodness into your diet.

The Remedy Switchel Mixed Case contain all three fresh flavours including:

Five health hacks to fight off cold and flu season

by Remedy Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill

It’s here! The season of cough, sniffle, sneeze and the doona come coat (fashionable… of course) to avoid chances of aforementioned cough, sniffle and sneeze. If the months of winter are some you dread, then it’s time to get savvy on how you can boost your immune system, energy and mood so you can enjoy the season ahead. Get rugged up and read on friends…

Dive into the winter sun

Make the most of any and all sunshine where possible and soak up the beautiful Vitamin D to give our bodies a boost throughout the winter months. Vitamin D from the sun can help fight bacteria and viruses as well as strengthen the immune system. Aim for 10-15 minutes of sunshine in your lunch break and if you’re able, expose your stomach or back for optimum absorption.

Double up on immune boosting foods

There are so many great ways you can pack a heap of immune boosting ingredients into your meals and snacks throughout the day, but having them on hand to start is the key. Add these ingredients to your shopping list:

Ginger: pop it into tea infusions, stir fries, curries, soups

Garlic: hello garlicky-olive oil toast with avocado and eggs, and of course slow cooked meals, soups, dressings or straight up if you’re brave!

Citrus fruits: lemon, lime and grapefruit not only taste delicious but are chockers in Vitamin C so aim to include them in your diet through fresh juices, squeezed over salads, in water or enjoy grapefruit as a scrumptious immune boosting snack

Green and herbal tea infusions: are a fab way to swap another coffee in your day in favour of something that can up the antioxidants in your life as well as warm and hydrate the body all in one hit

Fermented foods and drinks: such as miso and kraut are delicious as part of your meal or sip on a brew of miso soup in between meals. AND if you need something fizzy, refreshing, jam packed with flavour and good nutrition then a fermented drink such as Remedy Kombucha Ginger Lemon ticks all the boxes for immune boosting ingredients with ginger, lemon, green tea, organic acids and live cultures from the slow fermentation process. Be it Ginger Lemon or any of the Remedy Kombucha range you’re guaranteed to get an immune lovin’ hit.

Green vegetables: broccoli, spinach, kale, peas, zucchini, Asian and bitter greens should pack the fridge drawer over these next few months and make up the bulk in most of your meals. Green vegetables are full of antioxidants and phytochemicals and aid the body’s natural detoxification pathways too. Check out the most delicious Gut Loving, Immune Boosting Green Soup recipe here.

Practice rest

Which truly sounds bizarre I know, but hear me out. Chasing the clock, overcommitting, having a list a mile long, juggling work and family and all sorts of other ‘must do’s’ in our day creates stress in our body. Stress weakens the immune system, increasing our risk of falling sick once exposed to bacteria or viruses lurking about. A simple practice for reducing stress in our body is to address it with rest. By rest, yes of course, aim for quality sleep and healthy sleep habits (e.g. not trying to sleep immediately after looking at social media or emails, darkening the room etc) but also aim to allocate anywhere between 5-15 minutes each day to ‘practice rest’, the rest where you let your body take time out and don’t actually sleep, but practice the gentle art of switching off – guilt free. Everything will be waiting for you when you finish resting, don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere, but your good health won’t be unless you alter your lifestyle. Pop your legs up the wall, move into child’s pose, lie flat on the ground at the end of the day and incorporate deep belly breaths, meditate, whatever feels right for you, but make the practice of rest a part of your day.

Increase your zinc

Zinc is an absolute powerhouse nutrient playing a role in hundreds of enzyme and biochemical pathways in our body, including those which pump up our immune system. Zinc rich foods are abundant and easily incorporated into the diet, so whilst you’re making your shopping list of immune boosting ingredients to add to your cooking repertoire, choose a selection of these zinc winners too – legumes, seeds, nuts, dairy such as full fat natural yoghurt, wholegrains, eggs, shellfish and red meat if that’s for you.

Aim for plant diversity in the diet

Try to increase the variety and number of plants in your diet each week or each fortnight even if just by one. Building a diet rich in plant foods and diverse in its sources can lead to greater diversity in the gut microbiome which is critical to the strength of your immune system. In nutrition we always say – EVERYTHING begins in the gut, so we need to give it the most love we can through our food. Whether it’s each week buying one extra plant based ingredient, even a new herb is great, or each fortnight, make it your mission to create as much variety in your diet through plants as you can.

What's so good about Remedy Switchel?

Remedy Switchel is raw, unpasteurised and positively packed with goodness to benefit your gut health and overall wellbeing with no sugar, naturally.

Back in the day, farmers believed it was the perfect thirst quencher to hydrate and keep them going.

  • Help to regulate appetite
  • Promote good heart health and help keep cholesterol levels low

Kombucha myths busted

There’s a whole lotta jibber jabber out there about what kombucha is and isn’t. How on earth are you supposed to tell the difference when you don’t have a science degree and there’s so many mixed messages? The pressure!

Just like Frankie, Remedy says ‘relax’. Here’s our quick kombucha myth busting cheat sheet for the next time you’re left standing in the supermarket scratching your head.

Look for live cultures

Each and every batch of Remedy Kombucha is a descendent from the very first batch made on the kitchen counter of our founders Sarah and Emmet. The same culture has been brewing kombucha in Australia for more than 40 years. That’s a sign of a very healthy, very strong live culture indeed! 

Remedy’s wild, live culture of yeast and bacteria is the workhorse of our small batch kombucha brews. There are several stages to our natural fermentation process, conducted by many different organisms. Yeast of the Saccharomyces genus and bacteria from Acetobacter and Gluconobacter species are just some of the good guys responsible for our healthy, tasty booch. 

Is it raw? Is it unpasteurised?

Remedy Drinks are ALWAYS raw and unpasteurised. This ensures the beneficial bacteria and live cultures remain healthy and intact. 

Is it all natural and organic?

ALL of the ingredients in Remedy Kombucha are all natural and organic. Remedy Kombucha is Australian Certified Organic (ACO) certified. This tells you we have met rigorous independent checks undertaken by one of the most respected and trusted standards in the world for organic production. Our products are also 100% GMO free. 

How is it made?

No rushing around here at Remedy. We let our booch brew for 30 days in a warm, calm environment, in batches small enough to hug (and we do, all the time).  Check whether the label on your booch goes into detail and explains how it’s made. If not, we’d be asking why not?

‘Real kombuchas are found in the fridge’

Hold up! Wait a minute! Only kombuchas still containing sugar need to be stored in the fridge. This is because they can sometimes referment getting all boozy, loose-y goose-y and exploding everywhere.

No risk with Remedy as NONE of our drinks contain any sugar (so no chance of refermentation) and our cultures are ripped, super strong and fine out of the fridge. We make sure of it by testing throughout shelf life. We’re alive AND kicking!

‘Probiotic water’

Definitely NOT a kombucha. In short, it’s a flavoured water with added probiotics. Each to their own so if you like drinking probiotic water, knock yourself out. But it’s not a kombucha.  We prefer tasty, live cultured, naturally no sugar bevvies thank you very much!

‘You need sugar to ferment. A kombucha without sugar isn’t a real kombucha’

Sure you need sugar to ferment. Can’t argue with that. And we don’t – we use raw organic sugar to kick off our brew but what makes Remedy different is that we ferment out ALL the sugar because we don’t really rate it as a food (hello empty calories) and we don’t think you should be drinking a whole lot of it. That’s why we have the I Quit Sugar tick of approval.

Remedy’s mission is to shake fizzy drinks up for good and that means giving you, THE PEOPLE, a naturally no sugar choice when it comes to choosing a tasty bevvie be that Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Switchel, Remedy Coconut Water Kefir or Remedy Good Energy. All Remedy Drinks are no sugar naturally and proud of it.

The best way to tell if your kombucha is real

It’s super simple to test whether your kombucha is alive and kicking. Pour it into a glass and let it sit in a warm place for a few days. If you use Remedy Kombucha, we betcha bottom dollar a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast AKA ‘the mother’) will form. THAT’S how you know if it’s the real deal or not. You can even try brewing your very own kombucha using Remedy Kombucha as a starter. Here’s how.

Why Sporteluxe loves Remedy Good Energy

We’re feeling all the good vibes with Sporteluxe spreading the love when it comes to Remedy Good Energy! (Word is Blackberry is their favourite flavour come the dreaded 3pm slump!)

Here’s their take on why the world’s first kombucha based energy drink is such big news.

Beating the 3pm slump with Remedy Good Energy

The dreaded 3pm slump. It's a thing. You know that flagging feeling when you automatically reach for a sugary snack or bevvie? Well, Remedy Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill recently visited Channel Nine's Today show to talk through your food options for sustaining energy throughout the day. And it all starts with lunch!

Jacq's hot tips for lunch time and afternoon snackage:

Bananas are an excellent source of carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B6 and super easy for quick 'grab and go' snack!

Oily fish contain omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body which is a common cause of fatigue.

Sweet potatoes are high in fibre and complex carbs meaning your body digests sweet potatoes at a slower pace, providing you with a steady supply of energy.

Avocados are rich in healthy fats and fibre. The good fats in avos come from monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and can be stored in the body and used for energy.

Coffee or caffeine is fine to consume if you need a burst of energy. Caffeine can quickly pass from your bloodstream to your brain and increases the production of epinephrine. This hormone stimulates the body and brain to make you feel alert and focused.

Green tea has all the benefits of caffeine but also L-theanine which delivers a smoother boost of energy. Green tea also contains high concentrations of powerful antioxidants that can help prevent oxidative stress and inflammation. Look for a drink like Remedy Good Energy that contains both green coffee bean extract and green tea if you want a boost of caffeine along with the added benefits of tea polyphenols and organic acids.

Oranges are famous for their high vitamin C content but also contain compounds that can provide protection from oxidative stress which can make you feel fatigued.

Wholegrains - just one cup of brown rice provides about 88% of the RDI for manganese, a mineral that helps your enzymes break down carbohydrates and proteins to generate energy.

Hummus - the combination of chickpeas, tahini, oil and lemon makes hummus a great source of energy with lots of complex carbs, fibre and healthy fats.These ingredients assist in slowing down the absorption of carbs, which helps avoid blood sugar spikes.

Edamame are chockful full of protein, carbs and fibre as well as vitamins and minerals including high levels of manganese and folic acid. Folic acid works with iron to promote energy and fight off fatigue, while manganese helps generate energy from the breakdown of carbs and protein.

Nuts and seeds including almonds, brazil nuts, cashews (AKA ABC) are a rich source of essential fatty acids, fibre and antioxidants. Together these nuts have all the essential amino acids required to build a complete protein. The combination of these micronutrients keeps appetite at bay and sustains energy for longer periods. Go for a handful of mixed raw nuts and seeds as a nutrient rich snack.

So make sure you try and incorporate a few of these foods and bevvies into your diet and you'll be well on your way to sustaining good energy throughout the day!

 

Healthy lunch swaps made easy

by Remedy Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill

Most would agree that lunchtime is a pretty welcomed (even if it is only very brief!) break in the day. All too frequently however, in the scramble that is the lunchtime rush, people miss out on absolutely bangin' nutrition in their meal and bevvie, so today we’ll dive right into just how people in all walks of life can up their game and really crank some good energy for the remainder of the day.

Tradies we’re coming for you first. You’re up at the crack of dawn and on the tools early, so by the time lunch time rolls around the temptation of a sauso rolls, pie or burger with an energy drink is all so tempting but in both the short and long term this kind of lunch doesn’t support your health and worse can lead to a number of chronic health conditions too. The best choice? If you can be prepared to whack a sambo in a lunchbox quickly in the morning or even the night before, pop in some quality carbs such as leftover roast veggies, pack some fruit and rather than team it with a run of the mill high sugar energy drink, swap it out and go for Remedy Good Energy. The combination of green and black tea kombucha in the base of the drink, combined with green coffee bean and panax ginseng, without any added sugar will give you the lift you need AND has the added bonus of actually sustaining your energy and protecting your body from the effects of stress – definitely something for those in labour intensive jobs like yours! Good Energy has just joined the Remedy family with three delicious flavours for you to choose from – Kakadu Plum, Coffee and and Blackberry.

Students we know late nights of partying and study means you need optimal nutrition throughout the day. Whilst a quick, take away, fast food lunch might seem like the easiest choice, it’s time to get some food planning in with your study plan. Your best option here for high quality nutrition to sustain your energy for both study and social life is to swap take out foods and sugar laden drinks for some home cooked leftovers from the night before. Try simple, veggie rich dishes like stir fries, curries, frittata which don’t break the bank either, and take your nutrition and health to the next level by teaming it with a Remedy Kombucha. There are now nine different flavours of Remedy booch to choose from, so you’re totally spoilt for choice. Know that when you do pick up any of Remedy’s delish kombucha that you’re feeding your gut an abundance of beneficial bacteria to support immunity, digestive health, energy and brain function too.

Working hard to achieve your career goals but absolutely hanging for 1pm to take a breather and recharge for the afternoon? Time to think about the food and drinks in your lunch (in the park, obvs, definitely not at your desk…hint…) that will tick the boxes for balanced nutrition and boost your mental function for the rest of the day. Try making a swap from a grab 'n' go, scoff and stare at social media/emails whilst at your desk scenario to a lunch that will deliver energy and sustenance. Move over dirty chicken burrito, we’re boosting that lunch time office wrap with some delicious nutritious edge. Grab ingredients from home or the local market such as silverbeet, lentils, chickpeas, lemon, avocado, fresh herbs, feta, dukkah, juicy tomatoes, spring onion, chop them altogether, wrap them up in the big green silverbeet leaves, serve it up with one of Remedy’s insanely delicious Switchel flavours including Tropical, Blood Orange or Finger Lime and head out to get some Vitamin D on your lunch break in the sun. Remedy’s Switchel range made on a base of apple cider vinegar and ginger is the perfect pairing for lunches like these. Switchel keeps you hydrated and with the combination of apple cider vinegar and ginger helps reduce inflammation in the body during times of stress and no doubt we could all do with a little extra help reducing the load of stress in our lives at times right?

Parents, how busy life is for you chasing the small folk, avoiding headaches with teens, and we know how the days and weeks fly by with the crazy schedule of managing family, work and a smidgen of time for you. Sometimes the days go by and you wonder when or IF you actually ate lunch? The crusts from the kids' sandwiches don’t count for quality nutrition sorry!!! So let’s start with foundations and a bit of routine around it and then go from there. Stock up your fridge with some Remedy Coconut Water Kefir and get into the habit of making yourself a quick salad in the morning as you pop the kids lunches together, maybe if you’ve time boil a few eggs to enjoy for a couple of days with your salads to complete the meal. Feel confident that you’re fuelling your gut with an abundance of natural kefir probiotics from Remedy’s Coconut Water Kefir and hydrating yourself at the same time. Not to mention, just enjoying a little moment reserved for you to nourish and recharge. Remember to take care of your family’s health you have to take care of yours too!

Remedy Good Energy is go!

An energy drink that’s all good? All rrrriiiiiight!

What’s that? An energy drink that’s better for you? Heck yes! This brand new, live cultured fizzy from Remedy is the world’s first kombucha-based energy drink, containing all the goodness and benefits of kombucha with the added good vibes and good energy buzz of raw green coffee bean and ginseng for a smooth, enduring energy kick minus the nasties. 

 Why’s it so good for you?

Made with a base of Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Good Energy is packed with polyphenols, live cultures and organic acids.

 For a smooth, enduring energy kick we’ve added a few extra goodies including:

  • Green coffee bean to deliver a clean caffeine boost. Boo ya!
  • Ginseng:  For the win! Ginseng is known for its naturally energising properties. Double down on that!


Naturally, Remedy Good Energy doesn’t  contain any sugar, crazy unsafe levels of caffeine (more on these though later), guarana, or anything artificial. We’re making it right with a drink that delivers a sustained natural energy boost without the crash, jitters or guilt that can come from more traditional energy drinks loaded with sugar and chemicals. 

Where does the energy come from?

It’s all around you. Nah. JK. Good Energy Blackberry and Kakadu Plum flavours contain around 80mg of caffeine per 330ml bottle with Good Energy Coffee containing around 99mg caffeine per bottle. A cup of instant coffee sits at around 80mg of caffeine. Other energy drinks contain around 80mg per 250ml can. Ours has about the same, but without the insane sugar load or any artificial nasties. We know what we’d rather drink!

Soooo….what does it even taste like?

Remedy Good Energy is fizzy, super refreshing and comes in three fab flavours:

  • Blackberry: Plump & juicy, bursting with goodness.
  • Kakadu Plum: Tart and zingy, with a fresh-as finish. Fruity, floral and a whole lotta fun.
  • Coffee: For those who really need a little extra. Made with a carefully sourced, high quality roasted coffee extract that beefs up the caffeine content a little. Rich smooth choco-lovely vibes. A little fruity. Super fresh with a full-on coffee kick. 

How on earth do we make this goodness?

Remedy Good Energy comes from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha and is made using  the same live kombucha culture from the original homemade brew that our founders Sarah and Emmet nurtured back in the day.

Brewed the old school way, all the sugar is brewed out, leaving a live cultured drink with no sugar, naturally! We then add green coffee bean, ginseng and all-natural flavours to dial it up to a whole new level for an all-natural energy drink that’s better for you!

When can I drink it?

  • In the AM: Remedy Good Energy is the perfect fizzy to put a pep in your step first thing. Chock full of live cultures, polyphenols and vitamins, try Blackberry or Kakaku Plum for a fruity start to your day.
  • The 3pm slump: It’s a thing. Instead of reaching for a cheeky chocolate or soft drink, why not try a Remedy Good Energy and do the right thing by your mind, body and gut! Healthy = tasty with Remedy. No guilt goodness for your gut right here!
  • You’re busting a gut at work or play: You’re out and about trying to get ‘it’ done or pulling a late one because you’ve got an exam or work presentation. Reach for the Remedy Good Energy we say!
  • Sub out a traditional energy drink: Got the jitters from one too many? We get it, we’re no saints either but try a Remedy Good Energy instead and see how you go…guaranteed you’ll be feelin’ good vibes only.

Hot tips for your microbiome this winter

Here in the Southern Hemisphere we are heading into the depths of winter and if you have kids that means germs, colds and snot. Lots of snot. There we said it. What can you do about it? Well, one way to boost your family’s immune system is to take care of their gut microbiome. Read on for Remedy Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill’s take on how to help your family kick winter in the guts.

WTH is a ‘gut microbiome’?

Your ‘gut microbiome’ is made up of the trillions of micro-organisms that live in your intestine. These micro-organisms, mainly made up of bacteria, play a key role in digesting the food you eat, helping you to absorb and synthesise nutrients.

But these good guys are even more amazing because they also play a key role in processes extending beyond our gut including our metabolism, immune function as well as our brain and mood.

There are lots of different factors that influence the type and amount of bacteria we have in our gut, and diet is one of the key ways we can ensure our microbiome is balanced, active and healthy to ensure our immune function is working as well as it can - especially as we head into winter.

Here’s the lowdown.

An imbalance can confuse your immune system

An imbalance of bad gut bacteria essentially confuses the immune system meaning it won’t correctly identify and fight the bad guys like a cold and flu when they arrive.

For kids, this is especially important. They actually inherit our microbiome at birth and the first four to five years of life is when their microbiomes are really being established so fostering the foundations for a healthy gut now will set them up for life.

But it doesn’t have to be a chore. There are some really simple and easy ways to give your gut health a boost.

Mix up your diet

Maybe your kid is going through a ‘white food’ only phase? We hear you. But there are ways to ensure they eat a variety of foods. The more diverse their diet, the better their microbiome. A mix of raw and cooked foods is ideal, so try a raw rainbow salad plate, a big bowl of vegie soup (try cauliflower soup if they’re still in that white food phase), a handful of trail mix or veggies with hummus.

Introduce fermented foods to boost good bacteria

Not sure whether your kids will give fermented foods a go? There are plenty of ‘gateway’ fermented options to try: pickles in a burger, miso soup, kefir, a kombucha spider made with Remedy Kombucha Raspberry Lemonade and ice cream, even good old natural Greek yoghurt with fresh fruit is a winner for upping beneficial bacteria. For the more adventurous you could try a baked sweet potato topped with kimchi and grated cheese. Fermented foods are a great source of probiotics – the good bacteria our gut loves.

Pump up the probiotics

So you’ve probably heard of probiotics but PREbiotics are just as important.

Think of prebiotics as the food your good gut bacteria needs to thrive - pre and probiotics are teammates if you will. Plant based and wholegrain foods are your best source including bananas, barley, apples, linseeds, seaweed, onion, garlic, leek, asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, snow peas and green peas.

Legumes are also great so aim to incorporate chickpeas, red kidney beans, lentils and nuts and seeds in meals. There are so many great ways to incorporate prebiotic rich foods into family meals. Kids love a bit of Mexican - so try a Mexican night with bean chilli served with either potatoes or wraps.

Get dirty

You read that right - get outside and enjoy life outdoors.

Outdoor play is vital for a healthy microbiome so whether it’s a bush walk, playground hangs, a game of organised sport or a ride around your neighbourhood, make sure you get out and about. Better still, let your child get dirty and play with soil, as soil and plants house trillions of microorganisms. This can help build their immune system so they can fight any germs that come their way.
