Miss Happy Hour? Try these AMAZING mocktails!

Miss Happy Hour? Try these AMAZING mocktails!
Today I want to talk about something a little different - alcohol intolerance and some killer mocktails. I was never much for social drinking. Or if I did, I'd have one or two at the most. In the last year, I've realized that not even wine - yes, even the healthy stuff, works for my body. #sadface

It works against it in a BIG way. All of that to say, alcohol is a no go for me. Alcohol intolerance is common for those with chronic pain. 

I missed the social aspect of a happy hour and love the taste of a good rum punch or pineapple mojito. So what's the solution? Kombucha mocktails! It might sound like something out of a SciFi movie, but I can assure you they're not. They're delicious and nourishing at the same time. Pretty good trade off, yeah? You can read more about the benefits of kombucha here.

When I was first thinking about writing this, I realized I hadn't MADE one. So I went to my resident mixologist (aka my husband) and asked for his advice. Being the simple man he is, he said, drink your favorite kombucha. Thanks, babe, but not exactly what I was looking for! He was trying to be helpful, bless his heart. 

I mentioned my two favorite drinks earlier, and those are the ones I wanted to recreate. I mean, I've seen some great recipes online, but I wanted something of my own. You know what I mean?

So I set off in search of just that. And honestly, came up a little flat. I was going to have to create my own. Not an easy task for someone who sometimes can't decide what to wear in the morning.

My first one, the rum punch, is based on this recipe from Health-Ade kombucha. This one contains alcohol, so I swapped out tonic water for both. I was so skeptical when I tried it, but it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. 

The other drink is a pineapple mojito. This one from Flavour & Savour was pretty close. It calls for Triple Sec, so I subbed out orange kombucha for that. I think a blood orange kombucha would be fabulous with this one.

So there you have it—two of my favorite cocktails made into good for my body mocktails. Comment below with your favorite cocktail, and you just might see it in a future blog post. Don't worry; I'll make it worth your time! :)

The ONE Thing That Changed Everything for Me

The ONE Thing That Changed Everything for Me

It helped me feel better (and younger!) than I had in YEARS and helped fill in the gaps on those days I didn't take care of myself.

A cool side effect is that my hair and nails are the longest and strongest they've ever been.

One thing is for sure, I will never be without it! 

So...what is it? It's a called Sulfurzyme and it's chock full of ingredients to help support both your joints and immune system. Let's take a closer look at why I believe this is a MUST HAVE in the home of anyone with chronic pain.

Wolfberry - containing 21 trace minerals (included what is needed to properly absorb natural sulfur (MSM), 18 amino acids and other vitamins, it is a significant source of coenzymes, and the highest level of naturally occurring s-ORAC antioxidant activity, wolfberries are known for their ability to fight free radicals in the body.

MSM (Sulfur) - supports the body's natural detox process, preserves the molecular structure of connective tissue, supports a balanced immune system, and so much more. You'll definitely want to do some research into this! 

FOS (fructooligosaccharides) - a type of carbohydrate (the good kind!), it is both a prebiotic and a powerful protector against certain pathogens. NOTE: Use caution with this if you have IBS as it can be irritating. I've used it for at least a year now without seeing any negative effects but wanted to caution you all the same. 

I combine this powder with Ningxia Red and Lime Vitality to accelerate the effects throughout my body. This recipe is called "Red Drink" and was popularized by Dr. Robert Minke. You can learn more about that here. Some of you may have allergies to Sulfa drugs and may be concerned that you'll have the same reaction to Sulfurzyme. I promise you, this is not the case. I found this page that better explains the difference. 

This is a VERY popular product, so if you see that it's out of stock, feel free to grab the capsules. Some great partner products are Master Formula for total body wellness and Agilease and BLM for joint support.
