I. LOVE. KOMBUCHA. Ok. With that out of the way, I have been just sitting and waiting and hoping to see GT's back on the shelves. I found some contraband bottles in my fridge at home that my roommate managed to find and buy from some undisclosed place (ok, it's not THAT romantic. The undisclosed place is the small health food store where her boyfriend works...) I can't wait to see it again, but I've also heard rumor that it may not be sold in NJ ever again because it's not pasteurized. True? Does anyone know about this?

I would try Bragg Liquid Aminos. It really adds a lot of flavor without the sodium content.

Hunting in and of itself, (not for sport, only for nourishment) has historically been the way that humans have lived for many generations before any of us were here. The key to success in hunting is balance. If you hunt and kill an animal, use as much of that animal as you can and waste as little as possible. I believe the hunter must respect the animal and not see the killing of that animal as sport. It makes hunting so much more noble to understand the work that goes into hunting as well as seeing the hunt as a means for survival.

My dad and brothers have hunted all their lives. We grew up in the wooded mountains of Virginia without too much money and my dad has been living on his own since age 13. In his case, hunting was necessary and because of this he has taught us kids the importance of keeping a respect for nature. Many winters have left our family snowed-in for sometimes a month at a time, and without that deer, our food options would have been slim.

I absolutely agree that hunting wild game is more environmentally friendly and I would eat deer over cow any day. I feel as though the conditions in which the deer lived far exceed any commercial meat production, not to mention that trekking into the woods and waiting for the deer to appear is much more in tune with natural processes than a cow being led to a butcher.

I am grateful that I grew up exposed to this way of living. I find myself closer to the earth even as I sit in an office in New Jersey today. I do not agree with the people who go out and hunt for sport, hanging their kill's head on the wall as a trophy. There is nothing glamorous about honest survival hunting, but there can be a sense of satisfaction in hunting if the hunter's intentions focus on surviving and having a respect for the life of the animal.
