Friday Five: What’s in My Cup?

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for the new Friday Five 2.0. The theme this week is “Beverages.” So here’s what’s in my cup!

My cup runneth over with…

I’m totally in love with my new Hydro Flask tumbler. It keeps my coffee hot and my water cold!

1. COFFEE. My fave brew is the Cinnamon coffee from local seller The Coffee and Tea Exchange. Lately, I’ve been adding almond and coconut milk creamer from Nutpods and drinking out of my Hydro Flask. [Enter to win a Hydro Flask Tumbler like mine HERE through April 14.]

2. Coffee with collagen powder. The nice folks from Further Food reached out to see if I wanted to try their Collagen Protein Peptides. This unflavored collagen powder is grass-fed, pasture-raised, Paleo-friendly, non-GMO and 100% pure. It’s supposed to be great for skin, hair, nails and joints. I’ve been adding it to my coffee. Full review coming soon!

3. La Croix La Cola or Ice Mountain Black Cherry Sparkling Water.  You may know that I gave up diet soda (which was a serious addiction for me) five-plus years ago. I love cola flavored things. Thank goodness La Croix released NiCola sparkling water after Nuun discontinued Kona Cola, so I can get my cola fix. I also love Black Cherry Sparkling Water. I have a soda stream but have not found great ways to get these flavors. Any ideas??

4. Tea. I’ve been enjoying Numi Golden Tonic Tumeric Tea or Numi Indulgent Tea in Chocolate Spice. I’m planning to do a 7 day green tea challenge with Nanami Tea soon, too. Learn more about that HERE. Stay tuned for a recap of the challenge, too!

5. WATER. After running and at the gym, I go with just straight water. I sometimes add SOS Rehydrate, Nuun or coconut water. Usually just plain H20 does the trick for me!

What’s in your cup?

Have a great weekend!

    Coffee: Can’t drink my super strong coffee yet, so I have been drinking Door Country Sinful Delight, which is a flavored light roast that has flavors of caramel, chocolate, and cinnamon. Good stuff!

    Tea: I’ve been drinking a lot of Stash Lemon Ginger and also Teavana Youthberry tea sachets. Iced tea wise, I am very hooked on David’s Tea Chocolate Chili tea. Iced, it has great flavor, clears out my sinuses, etc.

    Water: I really like any sparkling water. I have not seen this La Croix La Cola, but I will find it! I am still battling to quit MY diet cola addiction.

    I love sparkling water lately. My husband quit sodas and has been buying it so I’ve been drinking all of his. oops. I also have some collagen + whey protein that I am drinking in hopes it helps my soft tissue injury issues!

  3. Kimberly G says:

    I’m planning on doing the Numi tea challenge this month as well!

  4. I’ve been putting the collagen I got from you in my coffee! I only started this week so I’m excited to see if it makes a difference in anything 🙂

  5. How do those peptides stack up to Vital Proteins?

  6. Tamra Phelps says:

    I had to give up soda, too, about a year ago. The stuff was just tearing up my gut, lol. So I drink a lot of flavored water. I hadn’t seen the Le Croix cola flavored water. I’ll try it.

  7. i recently learned that i can make cold coffee using a keurig machine…and numi turmeric tea sounds awesome!

    have a great weekend.

  9. I love coffee and all the flavored ones as well. I can’t function without my cup of Joe in the morning

  11. Heather says:

    ohhh i love la croix and hadn’t heard about the new cola! will have to track it down

    I am fascinated by the creamer you are using. I drink a bit of coffee but love creamer. Right now it is pumpkin spice but blame that on a sale. They had it for 50 cents each and I bought 20 🙂

  13. Calvin F. says:

    Interesting stuff :d nice share.
