Food Trend: Homemade Sodas!

A big trend going on right now in many restaurants are Homemade Sodas! There is just something about ordering a unique bubbly drink. Creative sodas made with fresh ingredients is definitely worth trying! What is great about this trend is how it can be carried over at home.  Combinations of Hibiscus Lime or Tamarind Peach give typical sodas a run for its money.  As it turns out "soda" is really a fancy term for flavored simple syrup with seltzer mixed in. So why not treat your taste buds to a carbonated drink that has a delicious surprise! Kids of all ages will enjoy. The combinations are endless! bashi enjoys getting creative with our homemade sodas.  Our Hibiscus Lime Soda is not only a treat to see with the beautiful edible hibiscus on top. It is in the words of Rachel Ray "Yumo"! Here is how you can make one of our homemade bashi sodas at home:

Panacea for the Body

I enjoyed another trip to the Terranea Spa to relax before surgery this week. What a feast for all the senses. I started the day with Hatha Yoga then took the Aquatic Conditioning class and finished with the Flexibar/Core class. I refueled with a delicious coffee/chocolate smoothie at Sea Beans. As I sat under the warming rays of the sun and looked out at the ocean, I was mesmerized by groups of pelicans winging overhead. I also spotted a small bright gold bird (perhaps a Yellow Warbler) flying over the pool. Every so often, a dragonfly would zip by. It is - without a doubt - the best place to spot frolicking seals and pods of dolphins. I even discovered a blue throated lizard winding its way around the native plants. Another beautiful day to remember and, by God's grace, I will return soon.
