Goodbye coffee, hello juice

In the spirit of New Years resolutions, at my workplace there is a 30 day challenge that kicked off today. Voluntary participants make a pledge to do (or not do) something for 30 days. Health or hobby, it doesn't matter, just commit to something.

So I'm giving up coffee for a month. I typically drink about 3 cups a day, and by "cup" I mean a venti-sized travel mug from Starbucks. My pocketbook will surely thank me now that I won't be ordering $6.00 lattes all the time. And if I stick with it, maybe, just maybe those migraines I get when I haven't had a drop of coffee in 24 hours will be a thing of the past.

Less coffee means more herbal tea, and delicious juices, like one of my new favourites, Mean Green Juice by Joe Cross. He's really on to something with his juice crusade. Even my 6-year-old is a big fan of this vibrantly coloured juice.


 And speaking of my little one, how about a lunchbox pic? This is what I packed for my daughter to eat at school today:

Clockwise starting with the package of roasted seaweed - spinach wrap (Daiya cheese, lettuce, Gardein ground "beef") celery & carrot sticks, blackberries, banana tofu, gala apple, and crackers.
