Good Deals on Steaz Organic Drinks

I posted a few weeks back about how to get a free sample of Steaz drinks. Since then, I've tried the teas and sparkling green tea beverages. They are both delicious! I especially love the peach flavored ice tea. It's a great alternative to traditional sodas. The drinks are brewed fresh with sustainably-sourced, fair trade organic green tea and sweetened with stevia. They contain no sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Here are some coupons and deals you can get on Steaz:
  • Click HERE to go to the Steaz website for a FREE sample
  • Click HERE to go to the Steaz Teas website and click on the "free coupons" link to access a BOGO (buy one get one free) coupon. It's a PDF file, so you can print it as many times as you want! The teas are $1 at Target, so with the coupon they are 50 cents.
  • I also found four-packs of the sparkling green tea at Big Lots for only $2.50! Click HERE for a coupon for 20% off at Big Lots (expires January 31). Thanks to The Thrifty Mama.

The Cancer-Fighting Cauliflower

Click HERE for an interesting article about the cancer-fighting properties of cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage. It's important to note that you get the most benefit when they are eaten raw.

I got a lovely little organic cauliflower with my Sweetwater harvest the other day. In hindsight, I wish I had eaten it raw to get the full cancer-fighting benefits. However, I made this very delicious cauliflower n' cheese. It's a much healthier alternative to mac n' cheese. I actually prefer the taste and texture of the cauliflower to pasta. Here's how I made it:

1) lightly steam the cauliflower
2) in a saucepan, melt a few teaspoons of butter, cheese and milk
3) pour the sauce over the steamed cauliflower and put in the oven until golden brown

Unique, Affordable Organic Kid's Clothes

I just received the nicest gift for my boys from my dear friend who always knows the best places to buy organic and green products. It was a set of organic t-shirts from Hanna's Dream, an e-store that offers unique, affordable organic clothing for children. The shirts are very nice quality - very thick and soft, vibrant colors, and an adorable quilted raccoon design on the front.

I think the website is worth checking out, and here's why:
  • While the clothes are still priced higher than I would typically pay, they are definitely more "affordable" than most other organic clothing stores out there.
  • You certainly get your money's worth in terms of originality, quality, and eco-friendliness. If you value quality over quantity, Hanna's Dream is a good resource.
  • There is an "outlet" page with great discounts.
  • There is also a "gently used" section. This not only saves money, but is a great way to recycle clothing.
  • The customer service has been great so far. The owner, Diana, emailed me back promptly when I asked about exchanges. She was also very reasonable about shipping costs when I needed to make an exchange.
Here is a picture of my little raccoons wearing their new organic shirts!
