Shake Things Up Part II

Preggers ladies should not have more than 200mg of caffeine daily, which is about a 12 oz. cup of coffee (American Pregnancy Association).  Today, the menu was a homemade rooibos tea (I’ll have to do another post on that) lemonade. A new glass pitcher from Target made this a special event.  You have to add some fun to the process, right?  Here’s an idea:  Hot boiling water, five rooibos tea bags, three personally rolled, softened, and squeezed lemons, plus ginger.  Scrape the ginger peel off with a spoon and dropped it right in for additional health benefits.  Top off the beautiful drink in a new pitcher with some agave and you’re ready to go.

All you need is a cup filled with ice that you can shake up and down like the baristas do.  If you’re an SBUX regular, just like that, you can add about $10 back to your bank account for the week.  That’s $520 for the year.  Put a little in savings, a little in the kiddos college fund, and get some new paraben-free makeup with the rest.  God reminds us to be good stewards of our finances and our body.  Your turn.  What can you change to be healthier and save a little money?
