Smoothies rock my Canadian world! Surprised? Yah, I didn’t think so (wink). For those of you who regularly follow me, you already know how much I love smoothies AND mason jars. I recently discovered the most amazing company – Cuppow – that has managed to combine these two loves with incredible ingenuity.

My biggest problem with smoothies has always been how to take one with me when I need to fly out the door to a meeting or training session.  I don’t use plastic to store any of my food or beverages. Although it may be tempting to buy bottled water for convenience, or plastic containers which tend to be less expensive than glass, switching to mason jars is the more environmentally friendly and healthier choice.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the most widely used chemicals in the world and is used to produce plastics. Consumption of BPA has been known to cause insulin resistance and lead to obesity, plus it creates imbalances in the various hormones involved in digestion.
That’s why I use mason jars for everything, but they can be really hard to drink out of without making a
mess! Cuppow’s Jar Drinking Lid are perfect for taking smoothies on the go! They adapt any mason canning jar into a travel mug in seconds AND help all of us decrease our environmental footprint. That’s what I call two birds!!
