Guayaki makes organic Yerba Mate.  It comes from the South American rainforest holly tree.  Yerba Mate has “the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage.  Guayaki makes Yerba Mate tea bags, in a variety of flavors.  They also make Loose-Leaf Yerba Mate.   Traditionally, Yerba Mate is something that people drink from a gourd and with the use of a bombilla.  Guayaki sells those, too.  They have a line of Yerba Mate that is bottled.  Flavors include Traditional Mate, Unsweetened Mate, peach, mint, pomegranate, raspberry, citrus, and more.  They also make a line of sparkling Yerba Mate that comes in cans.  You can purchase Guayaki products from their website.  Prices range from about $7.00 for a box of tea, around $30.00 for a gourd, to about $40.00 for a case of 13 bottled Yerba Mate drinks.  They also sell t-shirts for about $10.00.

Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation.  Organic foods are GMO free.  Yerba Mate has Vitamin A, (which is good for the eyes) and Vitamin C, (which helps with immune deficiencies and helps your body absorb calcium).  It also contains Vitamins E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, and B Complex.  It also has Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Zinc.  Guayaki has its headquarters in Sebastopol, California. There is a really good description on the Guayaki website about the Sharing the Mate Gourd ceremony, for those who want to participate.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
