Sporteluxe know a thing or two about health and wellbeing. They're all over the latest and greatest when it comes to what's hot or not. Their verdict on Remedy's live cultured Mexican pineapple drink? HAWT!
Australia’s the home of the Big Pineapple so we had a hunch our new live cultured pineapple soda Remedy Tepache might go gangbusters but we didn’t know how BIG a hit it would be! People lurrrrrve pineapple that’s for sure. You’ve well and truly welcomed this super tasty Mexican bevvie into your lives with open arms (and mouths!)
To celebrate the launch of Remedy Tepache we asked some of Australia’s top foodies to get creative in the kitchen and come up with some super tasty recipes using top quality Gerwursthaus spices including Chilli Chipotle, Cumin, Cinnamon and Mayan Chilli Chocolate to pair with Remedy Tepache.
Nourish and Flourish from Sydney (AKA Candy Luk) has come up with an absolute cracker. Here’s her super easy, delicious (and nutritious) recipe for a Mexican Cauliflower Skillet.

Heat oil in a fry pan on medium heat then add in garlic and onion. Cook until slightly brown. Add mushrooms, cauliflower and cook until tender. Add remaining ingredients and fry until cooked.
Sorry to say guys but your eight weeks of summer lovin’ are OVER!
It’s OK though, Remedy’s here to help you get ready with some great ideas to liven up your snackage and lunches because it’s BTS!
Here’s some cheap ‘n’ easy ideas that’ll get you through, give your gut a boost AND save you some pennies.
Canned chickpeas, lentils or black beans make for a healthy, fibre packed, sustaining salad. Try heating a drained can of chickpeas with teaspoon of curry powder, cool and mix with chopped bell pepper, celery, dates and red onion and cilantro for a spicy, tangy twist.
Pesto Pasta Salad
Grab a spoonful of jarred pesto (basil or sundried tomato) and mix through some leftover cold pasta (if you’re going gluten free try spelt or pulse pasta). Got a bit more dough to spend? Get fancy and throw in some fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and olives. Bonus points for this little lunch because cooled pasta contains resistant starch. Resistant starch is key to supporting a healthy gut as it acts as a source of food for the 'good bacteria' in the large bowel, fuelling their growth and activity which is all good for supporting a healthy gut microbiome.
Asian Inspired Noodle Salad
Try a simple salad using cooked and cooled soba noodles (go for buckwheat for a nutty flavour) and whatever veg you have in the fridge. Whip up a dressing with lime juice, soy sauce and sesame oil adding in carrots, cabbage, spring onion, edamame, red peppers and cucumber for colour, fibre and all of the vitamins! Cold noodles = you guessed it – resistant starch!
Want something comforting and filling? Try a homemade potato salad. Use leftover roasted or boiled potatoes and mix with yoghurt, dill pickles (live cultures ahoy!), hardboiled eggs for a protein hit, Dijon mustard, green onions and celery for crunch. (Cold potatoes = resistant starch!) A pre AND probiotic potato salad.
What about snacks 'n' sides? Not all are created equal!
Aim for fresh over dried. Dried fruit sticky and high in sugar so best as a ‘sometimes’ food. Avoid dried fruit bars and fruit straps or fruit leathers which are very high in sugar, low in fibre and can stick to teeth.
Crunchy veggie sticks like carrot, celery, cucumber and peppers are all winners as are cherry tomatoes. Steer clear of chips or crisps.
Hummus, tzatziki and guacamole are all great options for the lunchbox with veggies or crackers.
Live cultured foods like yoghurt and kombucha
Incorporate live cultured foods into your everyday diet to give your gut health the TLC it deserves. But make sure you read your labels! Fruit yoghurts can pack a punch in terms of sugar content as can some brands of kombucha. All Remedy drinks contain no sugar, naturally and come in handy 250ml cans which are perfect for on the go.
So there you have it - some quick, easy and cost effective ways to incorporate gut boosting foods into your lunches.

Switchel – say what now?
Remedy Switchel is a refreshing reboot on an old school live cultured drink. Fizzy, refreshing and a little fiery, this firecracker of a bevvie is made with raw organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) and fresh ginger, combined with tasty natural ingredients to create three delish flavours: Tropical, Finger Lime and Blood Orange.
Why should I give Switchel a whirl?
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.
