Do you have access to a juicer? I don't know that it'll taste the same in a blender. The texture will definitely be different with the pulp included.

Saturday night I had a can of Coconut water.
"But I thought coconut was on your Yuck list?" you say.
Well.... I'm not fond of it as a flavour (Thai food, coconut cake etc) but I will eat the occasional Bounty.

And I know I read somewhere that it has health benefits, so I thought I would try it.
It was lovely! The water itself was not overpowering, just a fresh taste really. There were coconut bits in, which were a little disconcerting at first, but I persuaded myself it was like drinking orange juice with bits in. Not like drinking off milk. So it was okay.

Not cheap at 59p per 330ml can (standard drinks can size) but I'll get it again sometime.

Have had very little to drink today. I'll feel it tomorrow I know.
But I only really enjoy drinks cold, and it's been SO DAMN COLD today I couldn't face it. Actually scrap that - had 3 x glasses water at school and a 500ml low calorie bottle.

Must make sure I chug some more water before bed. It'll wake me up at 04.00 but at least I'll feel good for it.

Mr Limey and I are doing an alcohol-free month from 10 January (well, the brass band Christmas dinner was on 9th, we're so busy gigging in December that we can never find a date that works for us all til January) to Valentines' Day. I tend to turn to herbal and fruit teas as a substitute drink in the evenings. Quite often I'll let them get quite cold, and I think I enjoy the taste of them more then. Have you tried brewing a fruit tea in advance and drinking it cold/chilled, Sundae?

Canada Dry ginger ale.

for the holidays they had it with cranberry and it was soooooooo good; but I procrastinated and didn't buy a case and now I'm stuck with plain ginger ale. Or unsweetened iced tea (Tradewinds is the best IMO) and I'm now hung up on buying Home City Ice at the grocery. I love the taste, I've been eating ice for about 3 months now and they're like tiny glaciers, each one a difference shape and size and when you get to the bottom of the bag, it's snow!!!!!!

I'm having Morning Detox Tea, and if I fancy a hot drink later in the day I have Nettle & Peppermint tea. Never really thought of having them chilled. I like to chug cold drinks, so a cup of cold tea wouldn't really hit the spot.

I will bear it in mind though.

I bought a couple of alcohol-free cocktails between Christmas and New Year. Grim. Sickly, sticky and nothing else to recommend them. Still (although they were fizzy) better for me than tramp juice.

Some of the Celestial Seasonings brand are nice, but pricy for herbal tea. Plain spearmint is nice, and I like nettle too.

does milk thistle come in tea form? I know it's good for your liver.

There's milk thistle in the Morning Detox, and I am taking the tablets too.
I think my liver is healing well, but I am erring on the side of caution - of course.
I got a 3 for 2 offer on the milk thistle so I'll be taking that until March at least!

I need to go to the docs for another blood test I think. Help keep me on the straight and narrow.

Oops, I've just ordered you some from Amazon, Sundae!

Oh you're so sweet.
No oops, I am getting along very well with it and I know it has a long shelf-life. I'll be grateful to receive it if it's too late to cancel and I certainly appreciate the kind thought.

Tricky wording there.

Limey by choice and location is a Scot. Anything referring to Limey is therefore Scots as opposed to Scotch.

But Scotch Eggs, Beef and Whisky are still correct.

It's a minefield I tell ye.
