Living a Little Greener

As I continue to make my life a little Greener, with using less power, to recycling, to just being more conscious of our environment I thought of another Green thing that I love~Green Tea!
Green Tea is one of those drinks that some people feel isn't okay to drink. While I completely respect others' opinions, I just wanted to do a small post on why Green Tea is so great for you. The taste may take a little while to get used to, but it is super good for you. I love how it's so light & fresh. Click here to see some of the many benefits of Green Tea. I don't love it plain, but it can be made in a variety of ways. Adding mint or lemon is yum! Here is a great recipe for a Green Tea with Ginger & Mint. I prefer to serve mine cold, keep it in the fridge in a pitcher and whenever you need a little sweet instead of reaching for a higher calorie or sugar loaded beverage you can pick a healthier option! (of course water is the #1 choice but sometimes you just need a little flavor!) Just pour it over a tall glass of ice & enjoy!

being healthy makes you happy


  1. oooh, I can't wait to try it! I love hot herbal teas in the Winter but now that spring is almost here I'll have something new to try. THanks Mare!

  2. I love green tea. I like to put Splenda in mine to make it a little sweeter but without any calories. sooo good in the summer.

  3. I was gonna text u this recipe so I'm glad u checked Brit! I know you love green tea. Yay for blogging, I love when u comment.

  4. oooohh, courtney's magda's gonna throw a fit!!!

  5. hahaha. Bring it magda. Maybe I should sign up for the big race in San Fransisco that has gays, cross dressers, streakers, and all kinds of CRAZY things! I could do a post on that too...

    (I actually REALLY want to sign up for that race, but Chris can't take time off, anyone wanna take a weekend trip & run the funnest race of your life with me??)

  6. So since I'm a cousin and not somebody weird that just reads your blog to torment you, I hope you don't care that I'm probably in the "isn't" camp on this one! Hee, hee. But you could substitute mint herbal tea for the green tea and lime for the lemons and I bet it'd be a fabulous alternative. Sort of like a virgin mint-julep, but without all the sugar. Yum!

  7. Mari... I want to do that san fran run. it would be AWESOME!!! haha. At the very least it would be very entertaining.
