I’m not a coffee drinker, never have been. I also wasn’t into tea either unless it was a cold glass of iced tea on a hot summer day every so often. A few weeks ago I read an article on green tea and how unbelievably good it was for you. I had already planned on kicking off the New Year with a healthy new attitude, a TON more water, way less caffeine, an exercise routine, cutting out junk food and some other healthy choices so I thought why not add green tea to the mix. I’m sooo glad I did because I found out I love it and really enjoy drinking it every day! I have flavored green tea’s in the morning and decaffeinated teas in the afternoon and evenings and my body is happy with me. Check this out if you are on the fence on trying green tea…
