Don't Worry, Bai Happy

One of my few complaints about living in Texas is that we don't have stores that sell Bai beverages. Dangit! I first noticed this new energy drink on Instagram, where I saw one of my #FitFam followers post a photo of a new coconut-flavored energy drink.

Uhhhh ... What is that? And how do I get one? Like now?

Thanks to my new pals at Bai Beverages, who were so generous and kind to send me a variety pack to taste and review since I can't purchase them in stores here, I'm able to happily share with you one of my most recent healthy discoveries. (Thanks again, Bai!)

A Few Perks about Bai Beverages:

  • low-calorie (only 5 calories per serving)
  • pure, clean, organic energy
  • no additives
  • filtered water
  • antioxidants
  • no carbonation
  • no artificial sweeteners
  • GMO-free

It's hard to make a decision which flavor you want to purchase because there are so many to choose from. However, my favorite, hands down, is the Molokai Coconut.

Seriously, when I took the first sip, it was like I had been magically transported to Hawaii, where I was lounging on the beach, drenched in tanning oil. My skin may have even turned a shade darker after drinking it ... Okay, not really, but I did feel like I should be at the beach!

You'll notice all of my pictures are of empty bottles (my bad). That's because I couldn't slow down drinking them in time to take a quick photo.

Aside from the delicious, natural flavor of Bai beverages, I found their main ingredient quite interesting. The juicy, red fruit is the superfruit that protects the coffee bean. Bai uses this Indonesian coffeefruit to add antioxidants and refreshing fruit flavor to all their drinks. With every sip, you're getting a boost of natural energy, as well as sucker-punching the crap out of the free radicals floating around in your body (especially for those of you who work out a lot).

But how are the drinks so delicious with only 5 calories per serving?

Because someone, thank God, finally figured out how to sweeten drinks with Stevia instead of aspartame or sucralose. Bai uses a fancy-schmancy combination of organic Stevia and Erythritol, another natural sweetener. This makes their products low on the glycemic index and a good option for those of us trying not to waste our calories on liquids. (Bring on the protein, ma!)

If you haven't tried Bai beverages by now, go on over to their site and order you a case yourself. One thing I'm learning in my own journey of health and wellness is the need to support fellow health advocates like the team at Bai.

Isn't it funny how the smallest gesture can totally turn your day around? 

Maybe it's a smile, a compliment, a helpful hand ... Whatever it is, we all can make a difference in this world. So today, other than encourage you to spend money on a cool, funky drink, I encourage you to begin bettering yourself by putting someone else ahead.

"... Clothe yourselves in humility toward one another because God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble." — 1 Peter 5:5
