Off to the moons! 🚀

So what do you do when you learn about an awesome mocktail competition 24 hours before it's closing? 

Correct. You run and go full throttle on a concept Drink. Especially when it's the perfect closing for Dry January!

'Ain't no rings but a cute spot'
100ml / 3½oz Kefir
60ml / 2oz Pineapple Juice
40ml / 1⅓oz Passion Fruit Juice
20ml / ¾oz Orgeat
15ml / ½oz Lime Juice
Caramel Syrup (to decorate)

Decorate the inside of a tall glass with the caramel & put into freezer for 10 minutes. Flash blend the other ingredients with crushed ice and pour into glass.

In April, Juice (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) will fly to Jupiter to explore it's three moons Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. ESA, the europeanspaceagency started a little #spacejuice competition for an accompanying Juice Mocktail. Geek that I am, I couldn't resist to jump in 🙌

Why this recipe? 
A frozen mocktail - you know how cold those moons are, eh?
Kefir - because what else than some fermentation fun could resemble our big gassy boi better?
Pineapple - for the flight into warmer regions before heading into the cold - a swing-by around Venus! 
Passion Fruit - because no matter the tech, it's the passion of the people behind it that will make the whole thing run.
Orgeat - for the precious cargo an Ariane 5 will bring into orbit.
Splash of Lime - for the fresh feel of the Social Media approach on the launch.
The cherry on top - the spot on Jupiter, which is actually a storm 1 1/2 times as big as earth.
Melting caramel Rings - nerves gonna be messy during launch.

Fingers crossed April will have the weather for a great launch and this almost milkshaky refresher 🚀

Anxious? Low mood? If you’re drinking alcohol, even just a few days per week, it could be the root of your mood imbalances.

Why?
Alcohol affects our brain in several ways. It changes our brains neurotransmitter levels, reducing our feel good hormones like serotonin and dopamine. It reduces our brain’s sensitivity to dopamine, making us desire more alcohol to receive (brief) periods of feeling good before rebounding into low mood. It also affects the #gut microbiome, which sends good mood signals to the brain.

If you experience #anxiety or depression and find yourself drinking to minimize these symptoms, it is making them worse over the long term.

When working with clients, we not only reduce alcohol intake to support the brain, but we recommend a customized diet and supplements to boost mood, support the brain, and get to the root cause of your symptoms.

Have you noticed a better mood as part of your #sober or #sobercurious journey? Let me know in the comments!
