What's in My Arsenal? by Liimu
I realized that one of the things that makes the difference between a good week and a not-so-good week is whether I've prepared myself for the week with food and beverages that support my healthy lifestyle. One of the things I have in my arsenal is green tea extract. My trainer has me putting it in my water and I drink 4 liters a day. He still says I can't get enough, as far as he's concerned.
This week, I had the opportunity to try a new green tea product that's on the market, called Tea's Tea. They have sweetened, lightly sweetened, and unsweetened. As I'm trying to limit my sugar intake, I opted for the lightly sweetened and the unsweetened. The unsweetened jasmine green tea tasted very pure - like hot tea that had been chilled, and I was thrilled to find that when I added a splash of liquid stevia, it tasted just like Arizona Iced Tea (do they still make that stuff?). The lightly sweetened was totally yummylicious, and is made with just a little bit of raw cane sugar. The drinks are all natural, organic, and best of all, caffeinated. I now have something new in my arsenal other than coffee to kickstart my workouts and it is yummy and it is green tea, people!
Tea's Tea is sold at Whole Foods, Wegmans, Safeway, among other stores for $1.99, just slightly more than spring water. You can also check it out online at http://www.teastea.com/. I will definitely be buying it on a regular basis. I love it!
