Product Review – Hskyhan Pitcher Water Filter

Here’s the answer to one of the most common questions I am asked – what water do I drink. Here’s the super easy answer – I use this pitcher filtration system.

Like many Amazon shoppers I looked on Amazon and chose a system with good reviews and a price that matched up with what I thought was reasonable. Lucky for me, the pitcher turned out to be a winner. On the first try!

It’s so awesome I gave one to my daughter for her place and she loves it, too.

The features I like best about this pitcher are the most important to me: the water tastes clean and the filter is easy to use. I change it once and month since it’s mostly just for me and Lucy. My next favorite feature is how fast it filters. Bonus, it looks good enough to sit on the counter or the table.

Here is my amazon affiliate link for the pitcher, which comes with two filters.

Drinking a minimum of 50 ounces of water daily is important for my health.

Do you drink enough water?


As always, thank you for the time you spend with me!

June 10th is National Iced Tea Day

There are sixty-one national food days this year, according to¬†. That’s where I read about National Iced Tea day before I saw Carla Hall’s segment about it on the June 8th edition of The Chew.

We’re losing The Chew! I’m so sad. I love those guys and that lady.

Back to iced tea. Carla Hall made a ginger, lime, and mint iced tea, which Clinton Kelly and Michael Symon said was awesome. I decided to see if I shared their enthusiasm. I was skeptical of that flavor combination. Here’s how it looks:

It looked normal and it tasted…interesting. Different. Not unpleasant. Definitely not bland. My ginger-lime (Thrive Life Limeade)-mint iced tea experience was one of those voyages into unknown flavor combinations that can lead to eureka moments. This one didn’t, for me. It was definitely refreshing.

What is your favorite iced tea? We’ll be discussing iced tea, and all things Thrive Life food related, in our FB group, “Living The Thrive Life Super Group”. It’s an invitation-only group, so tell me if you want to join.

What I ordered: green beans, bananas (a case, because I use them every morning in my protein smoothie), scrambled egg mix, and classic lemonade.

Our green beans are a favorite snack here with the toddler and my daughter, right out of the can. Me? I love to simmer them with onions, Chef’s Choice, and garlic. Top off with Earth Balance and serve it with a baked tempeh¬†or our Thrive Life Pulled Pork.

I don’t buy eggs at the grocery, because I have to make a conscious effort to eat them before they spoil. The scrambled egg mix is great for a quick meal, especially when I load them with Thrive Life veggies.

Classic Lemonade is back, and not a moment too soon! It’s seasonal, so if you don’t order enough you’re without it until it comes back next summer. I use the lemon powder every day to make lemon water by shaking a few granules into my water glass. This is my travel companion. It’s so much easier to carry than a lemon. (snort), plus it’s certified gluten-free and non-gmo.


No questionable lemon wedges in a restaurant for me!
