Staying refreshed and healthy with Honest Tea | A Good Hue

I recently got back in to working out by taking classes at Orangetheory and I’ve been being more mindful of the foods I’m eating as well. I’ve been opting for dishes that are made with fresh (and mostly organic!) ingredients and are protein and veggie heavy.

I’ve also been opting for beverages with good-for-you ingredients. I quit drinking soda last year and mostly drink sparkling water and iced teas. I love that I can grab an Honest Tea when I want that home-brewed taste on-the-go… or if I just don’t have time to brew my own. Honest Teas are brewed with real, organic tea leaves and it’s very much apparent in the taste.

The “Just” Green Tea flavor is unsweetened (0 calories) and is just that– green tea. It’s light and refreshing and pairs well with the super flavorful lemon sauce. I love that Honest Tea has several flavors– such as Moraccan mint tea, Peach, Mango, Berry, Lemon, Pomegranate teas and more– and have both unsweetened and sweetened (with organic cane sugar) teas. 

I’m not a fan of artificially sweetened drinks or teas that are too sweet (sorry sweet tea fans!) I like that Honest Teas aren’t overly sweet (or aren’t sweetened at all) so I can enjoy the drink and the good-for-you ingredients.

To celebrate National Organic Month, I’m serving up a yummy and healthy organic chicken dinner with an out-of-this-world yummy lemon mushroom sauce made with organic ingredients. I served it up with a brown rice and quinoa mix (I cook these together in my rice cooker) and greens– arugula and green beans. It’s a dish I can feel good about eating, knowing that I’m eating healthier ingredients. Get the recipe below.

    I’m not that into mushrooms but I’m into eating healthy. We are what we eat after all, right?! Of course I have my cheat days, but I do enjoy eating healthy, specially salmon or organic chicken with a salad. This recipe sounds really good! Thank you for sharing your healthy meal secrets lol
