FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & TODDLERS 2 YEARS+*

THE COMPANY:
When it comes to Humm, their family has been brewing kombucha for over 20 years; a tradition passed down from a mother to a son, from that son to his wife, from that wife to her best friend. From there, Jamie and Michelle set out to make the tastiest kombucha ever, to make it affordable to everyone, and then to offer it in bulk to minimize environmental impact.

And so it began…

What all started from batches brewed in their kitchen and ...

Caliwater: Cactus Water that Hydrates from the Inside, Out

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, In : Beverage Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 2 YEARS+

Everyone knows how important it is to drink plenty of water and to keep your body hydrated – especially as an expecting or nursing mom. However, drinking almost 1 gallon of water a day can get old pretty quick and doesn’t always satisfy.

Thankfully, there are plenty of water alternatives out there, with coconut water gaining the majority of the hype over the past few years, but with other variations – such as artichoke water, ...

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 6, 2015, In : Beverage Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & TODDLERS 2 YEARS+*

There’s no denying that I’m a big fan of kombucha. From the way it tastes (yes, I do really like it!), to the way it makes me feel, kombucha is one of those products that I literally have every single day. Even while pregnant*, this sparkling, fermented tea can do wonders for your health.

And it’s not just me that feels this way. Over the past few years, the popularity of these ancient “wonder drinks” has exploded. Once onl...

Moms, it’s Time to Drink Your Way Svelte (by CalNaturale)

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 1, 2015, In : Beverage Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & TODDLERS 1 YEAR+*

No matter how busy and hectic your life was before, once you have children you realize that the saying is true, “no job is harder than being a Mom.” There is no longer “sick days” or time for an hour lunch, your job is to always be “on” and there is no time to “take time”.

Because of this, us Moms often feel neglected or that we have to “let ourselves go” since our children are our first priorities. Exercising beco...

Mate Factor: Organic Mate Tea that Gives You Energy and Tastes Great Too

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, January 22, 2015, In : Beverage Reviews 


For MOM and MOMS-TO-BE*

Growing up I was never a fan of coffee. That is until I went to Costa Rica and had the “real stuff”; and I’ve pretty much been addicted ever since. However, I know that being “addicted” to anything isn’t good for you, so I’ve gone through periods over the past several years where I’ve cut out coffee completely [for multiple months]. But inevitably, I come to the realization that I need caffeine in my life, and so I turn back to coffee....

Arty’s Artichoke Water: Taking an Unusual Concept and Making it Taste Fantastic

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, August 4, 2014, In : Beverage Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Kids 5+*

I am amazed at how many water-inspired beverages there are for sale these days. From vitamin waters to fruit-infused, to those with probiotics and others with culinary spices, it’s not too hard to find something that even the biggest anti-water drinker will enjoy gulping down.

However, there is one water “niche” that hasn’t been successfully tapped yet, and until Arty’s Artichoke Water, I thought never would.

Pretty much everyone is in search of more energy these days, trying to keep up with their ever-evolving lives and schedules. Now add kids into the mix and it seems like sleep becomes a thing of the past and there is never a day where you aren’t “tired” or in need of a pick-me-up.


Although there are hundreds of supplements, drinks, etc. that we can buy in order to help with our lack of energy, very few are what should be considered “healthy”. Mo...

Ayala's Herbal Water: Organic Flavored Water that Makes Drinking Water a Tasty Treat

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Sunday, June 22, 2014, In : Beverage Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS* +

Drinking water is a necessity that we literally can’t live without. From the way it makes our skin look, to the amount of energy that it gives us, it’s amazing how this simple beverage can make such a difference in how we feel from day to day.

Yet know matter how much water there is around us, it’s actually drinking it that can be the hard part. Many people think it’s just “too plain” and they rather drink something that has a taste too it – of...

LIVE Kombucha Soda: Traditional Soda Has Truly Met Its Match

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, April 14, 2014, In : Beverage Reviews 


FOR MOMS AND MOMS-TO-BE* 

I’ll be the first to admit that Kombucha is an “acquired taste”. Often compared to a sweetened vinegar, it’s not a drink that the majority of consumers are going to choose to sip on.

The palatability of Kombucha has definitely developed over the years though, and not all Kombucha beverages are created equal. With that being said, trying to convince someone that they should switch out their favorite soda for a healthy Kombucha drink probab...
