Favorite Drinks for Work

Hey blog world! After a few months, I'm somewhat back, and I thought I'd kick off my return with a list of favorites. Slight backstory though: I started a new job this summer, which was a total unexpected blessing. I love the work I'm doing and can already tell it's a great fit! What I didn't expect about where I'm working, was the amount of coffee I would have access to. I've already had to set limits to how much coffee I'll consume during the day, which led me to thinking about other tasty drinks that would be great in a work environment.

Favorite drinks for work. Water, matcha green tea, instant drinks like Starbucks Via, bubbly water or fruit drinks, and cute mugs for coffee.
  • Drink water. Seriously, drink water. Get a cute water bottle that you enjoy using. Bonus points if it's easy to clean! Some people like to have a filtered water bottle, if the water at their place of employment tastes gross.

  • Find a tea you love the flavor of! I grew up drinking unsweetened tea, both iced and hot, so I enjoy most types. My friend introduced me to this Matcha Maker tea by Good Earth, and the flavors are so lovely. Hints of orange, matcha, licorice root, and ginger root complement the main green tea flavor.
  • Depending on the season, it might be a good idea to have a few types of instant drinks on hand. I love the Cool Lime Refreshers from Starbucks. You can also find instant lemonades, teas, coffee, etc.
  • If you like the bubbly nature of soda, but you don't want to actually drink soda, try a bubbly water or fruit beverage! We love Sanpellegrino Sparkling Fruit Beverages. My favorite flavor at the moment is Pompelmo! It was such a refreshing treat on friday afternoon. Try it! For a cocktail version at home, add tequila and you pretty much have a super super easy Paloma
  • Instead of using the paper cups for coffee at work, I brought my own mug from home! I like having a bright cheery mug at work that doubles as decoration.

I don't drink these everyday, but it's nice to have a variety of choices during the week. Let me know what drinks you like having at work! I'm always looking to try new tea flavors. Happy Monday!

Earth Day

This will be a rare post on my blog. But with it being Earth Day, I figured it was the perfect time to share about a little part of my life that I don't talk about very often.

Earth Day // Shaklee Get Clean // brianakapper.com

I found out about Shaklee a few years ago from some friends. I was on the journey to a healthier life mainly with eating habits. Throughout college I had so many stomach issues! The combination of stress, late night fast food runs, and an apparent food allergy, left me super uncomfortable in many different ways. After switching my diet around, I started taking vitamins and supplements from Shaklee. The supplements really helped to clear up my skin and helped me feel better overall. Especially vitamins D & B in winter. (Anyone else get a little down in the winter?)

So when I moved out last summer, I decided to purchase the Get Clean products! I've been so impressed with the quality of Shaklee and their commitment to their products. The cleaning line is amazing. I no longer get headaches when cleaning, I have saved so much money, and they work really well! I believe that health isn't just about what you put in your body, it's about everything around you. Shaklee has the most natural and nontoxic cleaning line in my humble opinion, and I even used to use vinegar! Even just the Basic H2 by itself is great. You can use it for windows, floors, stove tops, as a general cleaner, etc.
