Green Tea for Me!

While I love my orange pekoe tea and the occasional double double coffee… I know those aren’t the best choices when you want something to drink later in the day (and have already had a cup or two!).

Caffeine – Friend or Foe?

Most people (myself included) have a caffeinated beverage to “start the day” – and we tell everyone we just can’t function before we’ve had it. Of course caffeine helps to wake us up in the morning, but just how much should we be having every day? The Food and Drug Association (FDA) says that we…
