Brighter Day & Buchi Kombucha

Since Brighter Day remodeled its deli, they’ve been carrying Buchi Kombucha on tap, even offering a “filling station ” in the deli for people who want to take it home with them in reusable “growler” vessels. The service is quite popular with customers. Brighter Day chose Buchi because of their quality, interesting flavor combinations and dedication to local suppliers and to community.

More about the Buchi Story

Buchi is based in Asheville, N.C., the brainchild of two moms who found each other as part of a home school co-op. Learn more here. 

Kombucha in a Nutshell

Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from black tea and sugar, that supplies probiotics and other good stuff. It has a rich folk history and dates back to ancient China, being labeled as the “immortal Health Elixer.” It caught on in the U.S. around the 1980’s, with lots of us making kombucha in our kitchens. You can find recipes on line like this one here

There has been a resurgence in popularity in the past few years with kombucha breweries springing up all over the country and people again making the beverage in their homes. There is an ongoing debate about fermented beverages and alcohol content. Read more here.

World Breastfeeding Month: How working moms can successfully breastfeed

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Memorial Health lactation services breastfeedingReturning to work is a major factor in derailing many moms’ breastfeeding plans. The good news is that women and their employers can take some simple steps to support successful breastfeeding and, ultimately, healthier babies.

Wendy Nichols Memorial Health Savannah lactation consultant

Wendy Nichols, R.N., a board-certified lactation consultant

Wendy Nichols, R.N., a board-certified lactation consultant at Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, says a robust milk supply that can last must be well established early on. It should start during the first 60 minutes after birth.

A few weeks before returning to work, mothers may begin expressing some extra milk every day and freezing it. Milk stored in containers designed for breast milk can be frozen for at least three months in a refrigerator freezer, and twice that long in a deep freeze.

Finally, the Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide “reasonable break time” for an employee to express breast milk, as well as a private location (other than a bathroom) for milk expression.

For a list of resources for breastfeeding moms, visit or call 912-350-8164.
