Hi Annie, Thank you for your honesty – we are here to help and trust me, this is one of the hardest parts of week one. The witching hour with cranky kids, a new recipe and no cocktail in hand can feel daunting. Julie had some good suggestions and tomorrow’s P20 email will address this topic to help prepare you for the weekend. Here is a recipe that might be fun to try too if you like kombucha:

Kombucha Cocktail
1 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
12 ounces original Health-Aide or GT’s kombucha, chilled
2 orange twists
Splash of seltzer
Combine, pour over a fine mesh sieve (to pull out ginger bits) into glasses filled with ice. Stir well for 30 seconds.
Garnish with orange twist.

I am 28-weeks pregnant so have been just been mixing kombucha and seltzer in a wine glass. It does the trick for me so feel free to give that a try as well!

And you are so right, abstaining from alcohol is so good for your body – you will sleep more soundly AND wake more rested. Next week will get easier, we promise! 🙂

Let us know if this helps!
