What's The Best Time to Drink a Remedy?

It's come to our attention at Remedy HQ that Remedy fans everywhere struggle to know when they are supposed to drink it. So, as self-proclaimed fermented beverage connoisseurs, we have climbed over mountains and sailed across seas to bring you the truth and finally answered the age-old question of when you should drink your bottle (or can) of Remedy!

And you know what? It would be easier to answer "when can't you drink it?!" and friends, the answer to that is never. It's always a good time to reach for a Remedy!

Our Remedy Kombucha doesn't have much caffeine compared to coffee (a wee 10mg per 100ml) and unlike our arch-nemesis - the soft drink - Remedy contains no sugar, for real. Instead of giving you that quick burst of energy followed by a sudden crash (we're looking at you, work birthday cake), Remedy Kombucha provides an all-natural pick me up. As for Remedy Switchel? It contains no caffeine at all. Hence why Remedy lovers are poppin' bottles and cracking cans at all hours of the day.

To offer some consolation for the uncertain sippers, we have compiled the ultimate list to guide you through which of our flavours have the right tannins and finish (fancy, right?) to complement each time of the day or special occasion.

 

Breakfast

Blood Orange Switchel. Cliché, we know, but you'll thank us when you can stop dry retching at the thought of downing a shot of straight apple cider vinegar and swap it out for a Switchel. The fiery ginger and fresh citrusy goodness can help to assist with digestion.

 

Morning tea

Raspberry Lemonade. Lip-smacking goodness — the perfect companion for a morning tea that calls for something a little fancier than the breakroom cookie jar.

 

Lunch

Ginger & Lemon. Best for those days when you forget to organise lunch and end up at the local sushi shop. It's hot and sour, fiery and tangy and adds oomph to even the simplest of lunches.

 

3 PM slump

Cherry Plum. We know you want to reach for a chocolate bar and the most caffeinated drink you can find, but you know you'll end up in a world of regret as you crash 30 minutes after. Instead, have a Cherry Plum Kombucha. It has all that flavour you're craving without the BS (sugar, chemicals, you know the guys).

 

Girls night/boys night

Wild Berry. The name says it all. Treat yourself and your tastebuds to this three-berry sensation. Throw in some gin, mint and fresh berries to really please the crowd.

 

Dinner with friends

Mango Passion. Still lots of passion but brewed with the euphoric feeling you get when tucking into a mango, this one is best shared around the table with friends.

 

All-nighter at work

Peach. It's fruity and sweet and will make you daydream about sitting on the beach with a Bellini in hand. Then you will remember that your job funds those Bellini's and kick back into gear.


Signs You're Getting Healthier

So you've started that 8-week challenge at the gym, and all of a sudden, you're now getting news alerts for Body & Soul, your most prized possession is your gratitude journal, and you've started talking openly in the office about your IBS.

Gone are the days where you would be in the clubs until 4 AM, as you have a strict sleep schedule to stick to since listening to that one podcast. Nowadays, you're in bed early every night having "screen-free" time, treating yourself to a medicinal mushroom and ashwagandha hot cacao whilst re-reading your dog-eared copy of the Power of Now.


Every morning, you start with a shot of apple cider vinegar, some wim hoff breathwork, and a guided meditation before checking who has done what on Strava. You can't let Steve clock more KMs than you, so you give him passive-aggressive kudos and get into your $600 lycra kit.

OK, so maybe you're not quite there yet, but here are some of the signs you're getting healthier!

 


Nut Butter Caramel Eggs

Go ahead, drool. Nobody is judging here. Much like Christmas, calories don't count over Easter. It's a fact. Well, it's not, but we're happy to keep living in denial. Made by Remedy nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill this recipe is the new ultimate Easter treat!


Nut Butter Caramel Eggs

Makes 12 mini eggs

Gluten free, Dairy free, Vegan

Ingredients

  • 150g vegan dark chocolate, broken into pieces

  • 1/4 cup (60g) almond butter
  • 2 tbsp (40ml) maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp (20ml) nut milk


Method

Melt dark chocolate in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave or over the top of a pot of simmering water on the stove, until liquid.

In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients for nut butter caramel until smooth.

Once the chocolate is melted, divide evenly between silicone egg cases and spread around using a pastry brush. Place in the fridge to set for 20 minutes. 

Once set, spoon the caramel into the egg cases. Pop the remaining egg halves and pop on a plate. 

Heat a plate or tray in the oven gently so it's warm enough to hold. Rest one of the cover chocolate halves on the tray, flat side down, to melt the edge slightly. 

Place on top of filled egg half and press to seal. Repeat, one at a time until they're all sealed. Return to fridge to set for 30 minutes. 

Once set, pop out of the cases and enjoy. Store in the fridge or freezer for up to 4 weeks.
