Crack. And the Bionade Review.


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?

      • robyn

        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:)

    never tried bionade, but i love zevia! unfortunately i still have a bit of a coke addiction though. blecckckk!! oh, and i absolutely LOVE leechee fruits. i think they are delish! we eat them when we got to the FL keys all the time. the kiddos hate them, but they are like my favorite!!! have a super duper day!! xxoo

    • Kate

      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!

  • Rachel B @ Busy Mama Fitness

    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!

      Oh how I love a nice mojito!

  • TorontoRunner

    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!

    • Kate

      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.

  • Jenelle @ MummyLovesToRun

    “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!
