REVIEW -- Phix Natural Energy Drinks

Do you feel sometimes that you could use just a boost during the day?  Well, I think your problem has been solved.  I am delighted to present to you Phix Natural Energy Drink Mix.

From the Phix website:

Phix Energy is a sophisticated, natural energy drink mix blending green tea antioxidants, energy-restoring NADH, and yerba maté for enhanced vigor, plus we add vitamins and minerals to keep you feeling healthy.

Our natural energy drinks give you an immediate lift, but unlike other energy drink mix products, there are no spikes, jitters, or crashes. Phix Energy is smooth and sustained energy designed to give you a natural boost day in and day out. Try Phix natural energy drinks, which come in a variety of flavors.

I have been using Phix for the past week, and I can honestly say that within fifteen minutes, I feel so much more energized.  It is a constant smooth energy that last me the rest of the day, and did leave me feeling flat in the evening.  Then I get a great night’s sleep.  I don’t get any jitters or spikes in energy, like I do with other energy drinks, I just feel great, and have so much energy to get through my day.

Phix Energy is formulated under the direction of licensed dietitians and a world-class naturopathic physician, designed to help you feel better every day.  This is what I really like about the product.  I know that it is completely safe to drink.

Phix Energy is a sophisticated natural energy drink powder blending green tea antioxidants, energy-restoring NADH and yerba maté for enhanced vigor, plus we add vitamins and minerals to keep you feeling healthy. Phix Energy is a delicious, lightly sweetened taste that's refreshing hot or cold.
My husband had one the first day we got it, and he went out and baked up a storm.  We had cinnamon rolls, lemon meringue pie, coconut cream pie, cookies, and fresh bread, all baked from scratch in one day!  He said that he had not felt this good in a long while.  

Phix natural energy drinks come in 3 delicious flavors: Citron, Tropic, and Teaberry.  I have to say that Teaberry is my favorite, but they all taste great.  Phix Energy is suitably packaged in single serving energy powder sticks so that it's easy to Phix on the go in a 12 to 16 oz. water bottle.

Anytime, Phix Natural Energy Drinks can give you that extra boost of energy you need to keep you going.

Wordless Wednesday -- A Visit from a Neighbor

Here is one of our neighbors.

Isn't she pretty?  She is one of the three pups that were born this year.  The coyotes are not a bother to us.  They help keep down the rodents that we have around the house.  They don't even bother our small dogs.  We just saw one this morning snatch a ground squirrel.

Here is another picture of her getting up to leave.

And now, for your enjoyment, watch Wiley E. Coyote trying to catch his favorite, the Roadrunner.

Have a great day!

United Healthcare Offers Solution for Caregivers

If you´ve ever had to care for an older adult, then you probably understand that caring for yourself is the first thing to get left behind. With November being National Family Caregiver Month, UnitedHealthcare recognizes that caring for a loved one can be a full time job and understands the financial and emotional costs that come with it.

Through the comprehensive program 'Solutions for Caregivers,' UnitedHealthcare looks to alleviate this stress by offering aid on everything from planning and facilitating personalized care plans, coordinating services, educating on a new diagnoses, and offering tips that will help caregivers care for themselves. Did you know that:

19% of Americans age 65 and older live alone
  • Just because you don´t live with your loved one, doesn´t mean you can´t help them prevent household accidents. Take simple precautions such as placing water absorbent, non-skid mats on floors in front of sinks or encouraging your loved one to wear shoes that provide traction
15% of Americans age 65 and older are unable to lift ten pounds, leading to a lack of mobility
  • This can make even simple tasks like cooking dinner difficult for your loved one. Help offset this by placing appliances in easy-to-reach places and purchasing items such as a pasta pot with a built-in strainer that make everyday tasks easier
42% of Medicare enrollees age 65 and over have limitations in activities of daily living
  • Activities such as grocery shopping can become more tedious as a loved one gets older so stock up on nutritious foods that won´t spoil to help make trips to the store less frequent
19% of Americans over the age of 85 experience symptoms of depression
  • One way to fight depression is by socialization, so engage family members in group activities such as cooking dinner together. Establish a new family tradition in the kitchen this holiday season and think of ways to include your loved one in the action, such as reading a recipe or sharing stories
UnitedHealthcare cares for caregivers and these tips are just a few examples of the help available to you through Solutions for Caregivers. This resource can assist you whether your loved one is around the block or across the country. Visit for more information.
