When I am not sipping on water I love to have my fridge full of healthy, organic juices and teas, so I figured, why not share some of my favorite go-to beverages? I find that Jimbo’s or Whole Food has the best drink selections, but I can find a few of these at Sprout’s or smaller markets if I’m lucky.
Guayaki Yerba Mate Teas-
Yerba Mate has the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea and the euphoria of chocolate, all in one delicious beverage. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana, yerba mate triumphs as the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition.
Yerba mate comes from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest Holly Tree, Ilex paraguariensis. For centuries, South America’s Aché Guayakí tribe has sipped yerba mate from a traditional mate gourd for its rejuvenating effects.
I am pretty much addicted to their iced teas, I love drinking these when I need a boost of energy before the gym or a big pile of work that needs extra focus.
