It is only after you pause or stop drinking that you realize how much you leaned on alcohol to manage the stress and frustrations of life. 

We live in a world that mythologizes the power of alcohol. We are taught that drinking takes the pain away, or helps to take the edge off in a stressful situation. In reality, alcohol doesn’t do any of that. Drinking alcohol can temporarily suspend our awareness of our problems, while simultaneously exposing us to other problems. 

The beauty of not drinking is that we discover that we are capable of moving through life with grace, strength, and support.

Have you ever tried Agua Fresca?

I'd never tried it until recently and wow, have I been missing out!

Agua Fresca is typically made with fruit that is blended with sugar and water. (Ad)

I like to keep my recipes low sugar where possible, so for this recipe I used the Golden Monkfruit Sweetener from lakantoaustralia . It is completely sugar free (no, that is not a typo!). It's also low calorie, keto friendly and gluten free with zero net carbs. 

This Agua Fresca has only half a teaspoon of sugar per serve, which is naturally occurring from the strawberries 🍓

It’s SO easy to make and just divine to drink - the kids will love it too! 

🍓 Strawberry Agua Fresca 🍓

Makes 5

Ingredients

🔸 2 cups strawberries, sliced
🔸 2/3 cup Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener
🔸 4 cups water
🔸 1 lime, cut into thin slices
🔸 Fresh mint to garnish

Method

Mix sliced strawberries, monkfruit sweetener and 1 cup of water together in a medium bowl. Cover and leave in the fridge for 4 hours.
Pour the strawberry mixture into a blender and blend on high until smooth.
Strain through a wire mesh strainer over a jug or bowl.
Add the remaining water and stir to combine.
Chill in the fridge until ready to serve or serve immediately over ice.
Garnish with lime wheels and mint.

Give this a try, you won't regret it!

The team at Lakanto have also been kind enough to offer a 20% discount off your first purchase on their website, using the code MINDFUL (note this is applicable to Australian residents only). I have put a link to purchase in my bio.

Cheers and enjoy!

Happy Day 16 Dry Fam!

So I’ve been having some conversations with a few Dry Club Members who are doing the #1000hoursdry challenge, and I’ve been reading things like “my friends don’t invite me out anymore now that I don’t drink”, or “A family member is trying to convince me that doing this sober thing is silly”. 

Or, one that I’ve been told by several friends:
“But you don’t seem to have a problem?!”

On an online support group, I even read “a friend told me I used to be the life of the party, and now that I don’t drink, I’m boring”. 

When you give up drinking, it’s completely normal to go through a weird transitional period when it comes to friendships and relationships. Some people will feel uncomfortable with your decision to give up alcohol. More often than not, it’s because they’re faced with their own relationship with alcohol, and that can be scary, especially if they’re in denial. 

But at the end of the day, don’t worry, your true friends and the people who want the best for you, will 100% support you. The rest, won’t matter. 

DM us for support or a chat! 💕
