Panera Bread HACK! Passionfruit Papaya Green Tea

Now, we all love Panera Bread, and we love it even more now that their food is clean.  It has no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors or colors from artificial sources.  That makes it even better.  And when your slurping on that bowl of broccoli cheese soup from there, it’s even better than amazing.

But enough about that, I just found a genius hack from Panera Bread!  I had a $10 Panera Bread gift card that I could only use at the store and not online, so I decided that since I usually order online for lunch at work, why not go in and get some of their very yummy Passionfruit Papaya Green Tea and take it home.  I was going to buy the to-go bottles since then I could take it to work and drink it or just sip on it during this wonderful weather we are having!  Well I was checking out and it was like $14 for 5 bottles of tea and the cashier was like wait, I think you can get more for cheaper if you order it through our catering specials.  I was like sure, because I was only taking it home anyways.  She said well I can get you a gallon of the Passionfruit Papaya Green Tea for only $9.99.  I said SOLD!!!  So now I have fresh tea to drink at home and whenever I want and it was way cheaper than the original route I was going for!  Now I’m even considering bringing one of them to work and leaving it in the refrigerator at work so I can have it there too!

If you know me, you know my addiction to Cherry Coke was real.  Well in February after watching a bunch of documentaries about eating whole foods, less meat, more fresh veggies and less bad things, I gave up pop.  It was hard at first, but I don’t even crave it anymore.  But I was struggling with the caffeine part, and now I can have my fix so my afternoons don’t drag anymore!   I had went a few weeks without any caffeine but some nights when we have lots going on with sports for the boys, I need something to carry me through and I am not a huge coffee drinker.  So I think I found my answer, GREEN TEA!!

I had googled how to try and make this tea at home and lots of others had tried too but it wasn’t something that you could really just buy in a store.  So I’m excited to give this a try!!

Also, I was also super excited that a few months ago, I had free bagels for a month! It worked out great, I’d pick one up in the afternoon and eat it for breakfast the next day or my son would grab it on the way to hockey practice on the weekends.  THANKS PANERA BREAD!!

P.S.- I’m still debating on chopping my hair off again.  It’s just not working out for me long, always in a pony tail and giving me a headache.  A graduated bob or a-line bob is more of what is calling my name right now, although wearing a hat in the summer is a nice thing and with short hair, you look like a boy.  Decisions, decisions.
