My sister in law sent me an email last week about the 20 worst drinks in America. My beverages are limited to water, coconut water, kombucha, and various herbal teas for the most part. However, I know there are many that crave some popular beverages on occasion. Do you really know what’s in them all? I will name a few…
5 of the Worst Drinks in America
1. Worst Bottled Tea
SoBe Green Tea
0 g fat
61 g sugars
Sugar Equivalent: 4 slices Sara Lee Cherry Pie
2. Worst Soda
0 g fat
84 g sugars
Sugar Equivalent: 6 Breyers Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches
I did a post about this soda a while back. Unfortunately Michaels family still buys it….meaning Michael gets the evil eye from me every time he has some at family dinners. All soda is garbage, but this one is particularly bad all around. Not only the nutritional value, but the cancer causing substances in it!
3. Worst Energy Drink
Rockstar Energy Drink (1 can, 16 fl oz)
0 g fat
62 g sugars
Sugar Equivalent: 6 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnuts
4. Worst Lemonade
Auntie Anne’s Wild Cherry Lemonade Mixer
0 g fat
110 g sugars
Sugar Equivalent: 11 bowls of Cookie Crisp cereal
5. Worst Frozen Mocha
Così Double Oh! Arctic Mocha
19 g fat (10 g saturated)
240 g sugars
Sugar Equivalent: 41 Oreo Cookies
These are just 5 out of the 20…you should see the rest of the list! Out of control! Maybe I will include them in a later post, or you can email me and I will forward you the list she gave me! There were a few Starbucks beverages on there for you addicts 😉
I’m so happy you all liked the chocolate pudding pie recipe yesterday! I never got to finish topics for the FF last night, but I got this lesson learned:
When blending piping hot soup, always make sure the lid is on tight and place a thick towel over the top.
Yea, I spent all of my night last night submerging my hand and wrist in ice water. It hurt 🙁
Morgan’s Black Bean soup was amazing though. The good news was I didn’t lose much of it. The clear plastic thingy on the Vitamix wasn’t on tight enough and a bunch spit out on my hand. I was catching up on emails while it was simmering, and I left it on too long to where it was boiling over. P brain me decides to transfer it right away (it was 6:30, had yoga at 7:30 wanted to eat some first) and the explosion happened. Then I never ended up making it to yoga after all 🙁 It feels a lot better this morning.
This ever happen to anyone?
Why couldn’t I handle the pain? Michael to me :”I am really concerned about your pain threshold, you are going to be in a lot worse pain come a couple weeks.” Oh, thanks for the sympathy, Mike. He did bring me ice at one point when I was lying on the bed with aloe on my hand in front of the pain wailing in pain. Not sure if you are really even supposed to put ice packs on it, but you know men….they try and fix everything all the time. It did feel good though.
Anyway…I am SO SO SO excited for myy shower this weekend!
Sorry for the short Friday 5 list today.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
