Summers are super hot in Baltimore, True Citrus’ hometown. And our humidity takes “big hair” to a whole new level.
But super hot is when True Citrus flavors shine brightest. So to help you chill out without AC bills going through the roof, here’s four cooling tips:
1. When it’s hot, stay away from juices and sodas with refined sugar. Despite those TV ads that make it seem like sodas are SO refreshing, drinking cola can actually make you hotter. Why? When you take in sugar, your blood sugar levels spike, raising your body temperature. Sugar also increases your heart rate by constricting your vascular system.
This Fourth of July, 236 years ago, Americans declared their independence from tyranny. Thomas Jefferson wrote:
“WHEN in the course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.”
The Declaration then goes on to state why exactly it was we Americans wanted out from under the thumb of the British Empire.
Here at all natural, all-American True Citrus, we think this holiday is a great time to declare independence from another kind of tyranny. Soft drinks.
Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith. - Henry Ward Beecher, Social Reformer
Here at True Citrus we’ve blogged about how our all natural flavors can help you with weight loss, better health and exercise.
Wave Vidmar, master of all things Arctic, is hitting the deep blue sea this summer. He’ll also be riding the swells in October during his solo trip from the U.S. to England in a 24-foot ocean rowboat. But before then, he needs a little training.
To Wave, “little” and “epic” must mean the same thing. So June 21st, he’ll board the kayak pictured here, paddle past Alcatraz, head for the frigid Pacific waters and keep going until he hits Hawaii. That means paddling 3,100 miles for about 50 days straight! This journey will set the record for open ocean crossings in a traditional kayak – it’s “the Mr. Everest of kayaking trips”!
We love food here at True Citrus. Love. Love. Love. We even dream about food. But we also love our health and our figures, and we want to keep both.
That’s why we drink!
No, we’re not talking about daiquiris instead of dinner. We’re talking about the True Lemon pre-fill.
Here at True Citrus we read an interesting article on how Jenny Craig is doing over in France, where people are still thinner than here, but the obesity rate is growing faster.
The article had a quote from an employee there, who says she knows why more of us are overweight. She says it’s the modern habit of eating alone, and not at a table surrounded by family or friends, that’s the real culprit behind overeating.
What’s a great reason to limit sodas and sugary drinks and give your kids waterwith delicious, all- natural True Citrus flavors instead?
Because once kids get Type 2 diabetes, many can’t ever get rid of it - not with drugs, diet or exercise. They’re stuck with it for life.
Our First Lady is out there, planting whole foods and showing kids it’s fun to exercise. But it might be too late for many American teenagers today.
Prediabetes and diabetes are on the rise among teens, and that means more teens have a bigger risk of getting heart disease.
