Crack. And the Bionade Review.

About

Kate is from Sydney, Australia, and fell in love with running in 2012 when she decided, for no particular reason that she can remember, to run a marathon. That one goal turned into a love affair with running that keeps her sane during the day, and fuels the blog at night.

    I have never tried Bioade – I count calories too and 100 doesn’t sound too bad – certainly FAR FAR better than a coke- I am very much a coke hater:) I am such a nerd, I never drink fizzy drinks other than soda water and tend to stick to one glass of wine (if anything) if I go out. My favourite drink is actually Rooibos tea – full of antioxidants .

      I’ve never heard of Rooibos tea – where do you get it?

        In the tea section from Woolworths – it is lovely with a squeeze of lemon/ a bit of milk or even black – caffein free. I have 4-6 cups a day – probably helps maintain the colour of my hair – Rooi means red in Afrikaans:)

      e don’t have zevia, but it sounds good! The kids will eventually get into the lychee. I think the texture is a bit off when you’re little!

    I’ve never heard of Bionade, but I’m glad you found something to replace sodas. Yeah, I have the occasional one too and it’s not too bad, but I don’t see how people can drink them every day and with every meal, to me it makes food taste weird so I won’t ever drink one with food, more like a dessert I guess. I’m glad you got over the addiction, though :) . It is really scary that something people drink 4-5 cans of each day can be used as a cleaning product though, that’s a pretty big warning right there!

      I like the way you put that – “more like dessert” that’s a really good way for how I drink it now – a very rare after dinner sugar hit :-) . But yes, really not good stuff!

    I’ve never heard of Bionade but it sounds interesting. I’m not a big pop (soda) drinker at all. Once and a while I like a nice cold coke but that’s about it. I’m glad you got over the addiction. :D My favourite party drink is wine. :D

      Thanks Lisa!

    I have not tried Bionade but it sounds great! I gave up soda a few months ago and absolutely don’t miss it at all! Within a couple of weeks, my skin cleared and I had way more natural energy. Oh, any my favorite party drink is a mojito!

    You are my inspiration!!
    I am HIGHLY addicted to soda. first it was full on coke/pepsi, then onto the diet stuff.
    I’ve been off it for about 3/4 weeks,but it is incredibly hard – still.
    I’m taking your advice and tips.
    Well done for kicking it!

      You are my buddy in kicking the can, so to speak! I wonder if there’s something in it we need from elsewhere, like the salt or caffeine? I figure if I can replace that, I won’t need it so much.

    “I just stopped….lifes short” – I think this speaks wonders about your determination and strength! I love the simplicity of it and how you determine your life. Yes I appreciate “addictions” but YAY for someone who takes responsibility and takes control – NO EXCUSES!

    As for Bionade – yes please. I think it will do exceptionally well. I love to drink something other than water at dinners and special occassions and as a runner and BF’ing mother alcohol is pretty rare for me… So this is right up my alley. Will be keeping my eye out for it :=)

      Thanks Jenelle! I think it’s still yet to be released, but it can’t be far off, their marketing is all happening. I asked the rep but she couldn’t say. This was really good stuff, I’m definitely going to be buying more of it.

    I have never heard of Bionade but I’m open to the idea. Come to Canada!

    I am a coke and pepsi hater. I’ve never had more than a can of either in my lifetime. My weaknesses when it comes to sodas are Gingerale and IcedTea. Manfriend hates how I guzzle iced tea.

    My favourite non-alcoholic party drink is cranberry juice and soda with a splash of lime. My favourite alcoholic is anything pink and pretty and whiskey or amaretto sours.

      I want to come to Canada! I love how you don’t seem to care if Manfriend hates you guzzling iced tea!
